A. Astaxanthin, which is the active ingredient in Regenurex, is listed in Canada’s Natural Health Product Monograph for Antioxidants, which means that it has been verified as being safe for consumption by Health Canada. In the USA, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted natural astaxanthin GRAS status based on two brand applications. GRAS stands for Generally Recognized as Safe.
Astaxanthin was approved for sale in the US as a dietary supplement in 1999. Regenurex derives the astaxanthin from a certain type of algae called Haematacoccus pluvialis, which is present in natural ecosystems around the globe.
