Our mission is to utilize the benefits of microalgae to improve health and extend lives in the worldwide community. Our farm draws on the natural resources that surround us – abundant warm sunlight, pure deep ocean water and 100% fresh water drawn from Hawaiian aquifers to cultivate:

- BioAstin® Hawaiian Astaxanthin® – one of the world’s strongest natural antioxidant with benefits for joint,skin, heart, eye and brain health as well as recovery from exericse.*
What Makes Nutrex Hawaii Products Unique?
- 100% Potable Drinking Water
Our products are grown with 100% potable drinking water. This water is collected from the Big Island’s pristine aquifer. After being natural filtered through lava rock, this water is as fresh as it gets. To minimize water waste and return essential nutrients back into our growing ponds, the majority of the fresh water is recycled and returned to the pond for the next growing cycle. This process contributes to providing the world’s most nutritious spirulina.
- Ultra-Pure Deep Ocean Water
Five percent deep ocean water is added to the growing media for Hawaiian Spirulina. Hawaiian Spirulina is the only cultured microalgae grown with ultra-pure deep ocean water pumped up from a depth of 2000 feet below sea level. This ocean water is adds trace minerals and elements to our spirulina.
