      What is 800 times stronger than CoQ10, 1000 times stronger than Vitamin E, 1200 times stronger than Lycopene, 50 times stronger than beta carotene, and 6000 times stronger than Vtamin C? Astaxanthin from tiny microalgae! Natural Astaxanthin grows it in fresh water ponds in pristine conditions. Unlike some antioxidants, it works in the whole body – eyes, brain, heart, muscles, skin - to support a healthy oxidative balance. 

This patented formulation is the most innovative and bioavailable Astaxanthin products to support:

  • Supports anti-aging through cellular health
  • Supports eye health & skin health
  • Supports healthy immune function
  • Supports healthy cardiovascular function
  • Support healthy joint and tendon 

 

Want to Look Younger? Take Astaxanthin Every Day for 2 Weeks ! This is a little miracle your plastic surgeon won't want you to hear about. Sunscreen in a pill? Prevention of wrinkles, dry skin, age spots and freckles? Reversing the visible signs of aging? All of these, without a hefty price tag or side effects, happen to be TRUE. 

It's a relatively unknown carotenoid called astaxanthin, which is now believed to be the most potent antioxidant nature has to offer. Scientists long ago discovered that a class of naturally occurring pigments called Astaxanthin has recently jumped to the front of the line in terms of its status as a supplement, becoming the focus of a large and growing number of peer-reviewed scientific studies. One of the benefits of astaxanthin that has piqued the interest of researchers is its ability to help protect your skin from the sun, reducing the signs of aging.

What Makes Astaxanthin Special? There are many properties that make this carotenoid unique.

• Astaxanthin is by far the most powerful carotenoid antioxidant when it comes to free radical scavenging.The damaging effects of sunlight and various organic materials are caused by this less-stable form of oxygen.

• Astaxanthin crosses the blood-brain barrier AND the blood-retinal barrier(beta carotene and lycopene do not), which brings antioxidant and anti-inflammatory protection to your eyes, brain and central nervous system. There have been no adverse reactions found for people taking astaxanthin.

 

The natural astaxanthin combined with lutein on highest potency to strongly protect your overall Health

Directions: As a dietary supplement, take 1-2 caps daily with food. This is a safe and natural product. Optimally, during the first 15 days, double the dose. Results are usually seen within 2 to 6 weeks of daily use.

NYU Langone Medical Center Clinical Study

 

Astaxanthin, a substance in the carotenoid family, provides the pink color of salmon and many other sea creatures. Like other carotenoids, astaxanthin is a strong antioxidant . It has been advocated for treating or preventing a number of health conditions, but as yet none of these proposed uses is supported by meaningful scientific evidence.

*

Requirements/Sources  

Astaxanthin is not an essential nutrient. However, it is possible that increased intake of astaxanthin could provide health benefits.

Salmon is an excellent source of astaxanthin. A typical serving of Atlantic salmon provides approximately 1 mg of astaxanthin, while a similar serving of Pacific salmon might provide 4-5 mg. Krill oil is another good food source of astaxanthin.

When consistently exposed to high levels of ultraviolet light, the algae Haematococcus pluvialis produces very large quantities of astaxanthin, presumably to protect itself from injury. Haematococcus raised in this way is used as a commercial source of astaxanthin.

*

Beneficial Dosages  

In studies, astaxanthin has been given in doses ranging from 4-16 mg daily.

Some evidence suggests that astaxanthin is better absorbed when consumed in an oily base. 1

Beneficial Uses  

Many health claims for astaxanthin are based on the fact that it is a strong antioxidant. However, in recent years, scientific confidence in the medical benefits of antioxidants has waned; study after gigantic study of antioxidants such as vitamin E and beta-carotene have failed to find the hoped-for benefits.

Other proposed uses of astaxanthin have at least marginal supporting evidence from double-blind studies . In one such study, 30 men withinfertility were given either placebo or 16 mg of astaxanthin daily, for a period three months. 2 The results showed possible small benefits on laboratory measures of fertility.

Another study tested astaxanthin combined with the carotenoid lutein as a possible supplement for enhancing recovery from exercise . In this small trial, 20 body-builders were given either placebo or the carotenoid combination for three weeks. 3 Participants then engaged in intense exercise. The results failed to show that use of the astaxanthin/lutein combination reduced muscle soreness or signs of muscle injury.

Weak evidence additionally hints that astaxanthin might reduce blood pressure , help prevent heart disease , lower cholesterol , protect the lens of the eye against cataracts , protect the stomach against ulcers , and reduce risk of macular degeneration . 4-6,8 However, for none of these uses (or any other) can astaxanthin yet be remotely called a proven treatment.

Two studies failed to find astaxanthin significantly more effective than placebo for treating stomach irritation in people with dyspepsia(nonspecific stomach pain). 9,10

*

Safety Issues  

As a widely consumed nutritional substance, astaxanthin is expected to have a low order of toxicity. In human studies, no serious adverse effects have been seen. 2,3,7 Maximum safe doses in pregnant or nursing women, young children, or individuals with severe liver or kidney disease have not been determined.
