At six thousand times more powerful than vitamin C and five hundred times more powerful that green tea, astaxanthin is the most powerful antioxidant yet discovered and antioxidants are essential for ridding our bodies of harmful free-radicals and helping maintain a healthy immune system.

Astaxanthin is considered a “Superantioxidant” and it easily outperforms other well-known antioxidants, such as Vitamin C, vitamin E, Resveratrol, Co-Q 10, and green tea.

Astaxanthin is a red pigment molecule that forms part of the carotenoid family. Many marine creatures (and others like flamingos) have this algae as part of their natural diet. It’s astaxanthin that makes salmon, trout, prawns and krill appear pink and it’s astaxanthin that gives the salmon the amazing strength and endurance it needs to swim up rapids to breed.

Natural astaxanthin has a number of unique features:

Most antioxidants are either water soluble or fat soluble and this restricts which parts of the body they reach. Astaxanthin is both so it can reach outside and inside cells. It therefore can penetrate every part of the body including the skin.
Cell Membrane Bridge – Astaxanthin aligns itself across the outer double-layered cell membrane, and acts as a bridge transporting free radicals out of the cell, and works with other antioxidants to neutralize them.
Penetrates the blood brain barrier. One of a few antioxidants that can do this.
Penetrates the eye. Again one of the few antioxidants that can penetrate the eye.
In addition, many antioxidants become pro-oxidant, i.e. harmful, under certain circumstances by behaving as free radicals themselves. Astaxanthin never becomes a pro-oxidant. Also, some antioxidants can be converted to Vitamin A which is harmful in large doses as it accumulates in the body. Astaxanthin cannot be converted to Vitamin A.

Natural astaxanthin products are favoured by sportspeople, active people over the age of forty, veteran sportspeople and anyone seeking natural support for joint mobility, eye health, heart health, healthy skin and brain function.
