PlanktonHolland supplements includes also a wide spectrum of bioactive Hydroxy Carotenoids. Currently, promising scientific research is done into the effectiveness of this ancient pigments. The collective name Xanthophyll [Hydroxy Carotenoids] stands for β-Caroteen, Vaucheriaxanthin, Violaxanthin, Antheraxanthin, Canthaxanthin, Astaxanthin, Zeaxanthin and Chlorophyll.
