Project Description

Astaxanthin has been around a long, long time, but it has only recently begun to be recognized as the super-antioxidant that really works. Often called “the king of the carotenoids,” Astaxanthin is 10 to 100 times more powerful than other carotenoids like beta-carotene and lycopene. Plus, unlike several other antioxidants, astaxanthin does not become pro-oxidant in the body. This makes it one of the most potent and powerfully effective anioxidants that one can ingest. A naturally occurring carotenoid pigment and a powerful biological antioxidant, astaxanthin exhibits strong free radical scavenging activity and may help protect against oxidative damage of LDL-cholesterol, cell membranes, cells, and tissues. Overall, it helps provide antioxidant for eye and skin health, contributes to the premature aging of cells, supports cardiovascular health, protects cells and the nervous system from oxidative damage, and supports brain health.*
