Paracoccus carotinifaciens. King of the Carotenoids, your health and skin care treatment (astaxanthin).

Paracoccus carotinifaciens is isolated from soil, and is a Gram-negative, aerobic, orange-red pigment, rod-shaped, motile by peritrichous flagella and astaxanthin producing bacteria. This organism produces carotenoids, mainly astaxanthin. I choose Paracoccus carotinifaciens because it produces astaxanthin which is usefull to human by protecting the skin and eyes from UV-induced damage.

Astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant carotenoid:
A number of in vitro and in vivo studies - animal and human - have demonstrated the antioxidant efficacy of astaxanthin and its benefits in the prevention and/or treatment of oxidative stress-related neurodegenerative diseases and cardio-vascular diseases, as well as in protecting the skin and eyes from UV-induced damage.

It also has the characteristics of:
Anti-Cancer
Cardio-protective

Pigment and Shape: Orange-Red Rod-shaped bacterium.
Size: 1 um.
Pigmentation characteristics: Like many carotenoids, astaxanthin is a lipid-soluble pigment. Its red-orange colour is due to the extended chain of conjugated (alternating double and single) double bonds at the centre of the compound. This chain of conjugated double bonds is also responsible for the antioxidant function of astaxanthin (as well as other carotenoids) as it results in a region of decentralized electrons that can be donated to reduce a reactive oxidizing molecule.
