Antiaging effects of astaxanthin-rich alga Haematococcus pluvialis on fruit flies under oxidative stress.

Abstract

The microalga Haematococcus pluvialis (HP) is the best natural producer of astaxanthin (AX), which is a potent antioxidant with broad health benefits. The present study investigated the antiaging potential of HP biomass using the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster as the animal model. The results showed that in wild-type flies the treatment of HP induced the… (More)
