About Us

Algae Health (Slainte Alga Teoranta) was established in 2009 by Edward McHugh.

Following 3 years of intensive Research and Development based on our proprietary cultivation technology (patent pending) we are now in a position to scale-up production of our first product, ASTAXANTHIN.

ASTAXANTHIN is a carotenoid with high anti-oxidant properties, 10 times greater than Beta Carotene and up to 500 times greater than vitamin E. It does not convert into Vitamin A in the body like other carotenoids, which is important as too much vitamin A in the human body is toxic. Some of the potential benefits of this product are:

  • Age-Related Macular Degeneration: the leading cause of blindness in the aging population
  • Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Diseases: two of the most important neurodegenerative diseases
  • Cholesterol Disease: ameliorates the effects of LDL, the "bad" cholesterol
  • Inflammatory, chronic viral and autoimmune disease
  • Dyspepsia
  • Semen fertility improvement
  • Muscle function
  • Sunburn from UV light
  • Normalization of cardiac rhythm
  • Anti-hypertension agent
  • Stress management
  • Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)
  • Stroke: repairs damage caused by lack of oxygen
