Astaxanthin

Derived from Haematococcus pluvialis microalgae cultivated under pristine conditions, esterified astaxanthin is a stable, fat-soluble antioxidant from the carotenoid family. Astaxanthin protects the phospholipid membranes of cells from oxidative damage. In a recent U.S. study, it demonstrated the ability to cross the blood brain barrier and protect the retina in animals, suggesting its potential for supporting the brain and nervous system from free radical damage. Initial trials with astaxanthin suggest that it may support the skin’s natural antioxidant defenses against free radicals induced by sun exposure. In a human clinical evaluation, supplementation with astaxanthin for two weeks provided enhanced antioxidant protection for the skin. As one double-blind, placebo-controlled trial suggests, astaxanthin may also provide statistically significant joint comfort in human volunteers. The results of another clinical trial suggest that astaxanthin supported knee comfort and joint function after strenuous leg exercises. Subjects in a third study using astaxanthin reported enhanced wrist nerve comfort. Additional studies suggest astaxanthin’s immune, cellular and cardiovascular support potential.

Astaxanthin provides superior antioxidant power, supporting the natural antioxidant defenses of the skin as well as macular, immune, cellular, joint and heart health.
