2.WHAT FOODS ARE HIGH IN ASTAXANTHIN?
Astaxanthin is a pigment. Astaxanthin can make salmon,egg yolk,shrimp,crab,etc.appear red,because in the natural world,astaxanthin is produced by algae,bacteria and phytoplankton.Some aquatic species,including crustaceans such as shrimp and crab,eat these algae and plankton,and then store the pigment in the shell,so their appearance is red.These shellfish are preyed by fish (salmon,squid,california),birds (flamingos,ibis),chickens and ducks,and then stored in skin and adipose tissue.This is why salmon and some other animals appear red.
