Astaxanthin is regarded to be a potential antioxidant whose main function is to protect the human cells from high oxidation and inflammation. Astaxanthin is classified as a keto-carotenoid, belonging to a larger class called the terpenes. Astaxanthin shows the characteristics of all carotenoids, it is lipid-soluble, it forms double covalent bonds at the center of its nucleus resulting in its red-pigment color, and their chain conjugated double bonds become responsible for their antioxidant functions.

Astaxanthin can be used in the form of dietary and feed supplements such as food colorants for salmon, shrimps, eggs, chicken and crabs production. Synthetic astaxanthin is used as animal feeds and additives to impart coloration such as chicken egg yolks and farm-raised salmon. Astaxanthin also has anti-inflammatory properties which helps in the reduction of pain in the joints, tendons, and muscles of patients that suffer from chronic arthritis. Astaxanthin also helps in the rise of general blood flow resulting in the reduction of blood sugar, diabetes, and blood pressure of patients. According to the survey conducted by the World Health Organization or the WHO, there are more than ten million people in the world, as of 2020, that uses astaxanthin on both dietary basis and as a medication.
