Shrimps forever Astaxanthin lollies are characteristically red shrimp lollies with a high content of astaxanthin. Astaxanthin is the most powerful colour enhancer and will increase the color coverage, lead to tighter lines and much clearer patterns.
Astaxanthin is a substance which particularly strengthens the red colouration in shrimps and therefore is very useful for, for instance, Crystal red-, Wine red-, red pinto shrimp etc. Astaxanthin is structurally related to the well known beta-carotene, zeaxanthin and lutein, but has a 10 times greater effect than the beta-carotene. As a result astaxanthin is the strongest, natural colour enhancer.
Astaxanthin not only provides the intensity of the red colors but also leads to more pigment for all shrimp, for all colours. More pigment means a brighter and more intense colour for the shrimp. Moreover, astaxanthin has a vitamin-effect and thus a positive effect on fertility and the immune system of the shrimp.
