Responding to increased market demand for its natural Astaxanthin, Kailua Kona, Hawaii-based Cyanotech has announced a 33% expansion of Astaxanthin capacity at its Kona production facility.

“With our Astaxanthin sales almost doubling since January, we have ramped up production and are realizing record yields month after month. In addition, we are adding 33% more Astaxanthin capacity, which should be fully on line in six months,” said Brent Bailey, President and CEO of Cyanotech.

Demand for Astaxanthin has increased steadily in the supplement industry this year since Dr. Joseph Mercola went on the Dr. Oz show, proclaiming it “The #1 supplement you’ve never heard of that you should be taking.”

Mr. Bailey noted, “We’ve been able to benefit from this recognition because Cyanotech has the world’s largest production capacity and we had excellent inventory levels coming into this period of increased demand in January. We’re seeing demand continue to build nine months after the first Dr. Oz segment initially aired.”

Cyanotech’s Founder & Chief Scientific Officer, Gerald Cysewski, PhD added, “With our product, BioAstin Hawaiian Astaxanthin, people taking it for 2 to 6 weeks start to actually feel the benefits. This may mean decreased arthritis pain, improvements in skin quality, or maybe faster recovery from exercise and better workouts. Overall, about 80% of people will actually notice a difference within the first two months of use.”
