Astaxanthin - Astaxanthin provides superior antioxidant power, boosting the natural antioxidant defenses of the skin, supporting macular health, promoting healthy immune and cellular function, enhancing joint comfort, providing potential support for the digestive environment, and demonstrating lipid and cardiovascular health properties.

What Is It?

Derived from Haematococcus pluvialis microalgae cultivated under pristine conditions, esterfied astaxanthin is a stable, powerful, fat-soluble antioxidant from the carotnoid family. Haematococcus algae produces astaxanthin to protect itself against ultraviolet induced free radical damage.*

Features Include: Enhanced Antioxidant Capacity: Astaxanthin is different from beta-carotene in that it has two additional oxygenated groups on each of its ring structures, enhancing its ability to scavenge free radicals. It is believed to be several hundred times more effective than vitamin E in neutralizing singlet oxygen molecules and has been shown to exert greater antioxidant activity than both zeaxanthin and lutein.*

Bioavailability And Stability: astaxanthin is formulated in a base of safflower oil to enhance bioavailability. Clinically Studied: Astaxanthin has been and will continue to be clinically studied.

Uses For Astaxanthin

Antioxidant Support: 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. In one animal study, astaxanthin helped to maintain a healthy bacterial environment in the stomach.*

Skin Support: Initial trials with astaxanthin suggest that it may boost the skin's natural antioxidant defenses against ultraviolet induced free radicals. In a human clinical evaluation, supplementation with BioAstin® astaxanthin for two weeks provided significant antioxidant protection for the skin. In cell cultures, astaxanthin provided greater protection than both beta-carotene and lutein, in part by supporting catalase and superoxide dismutase activity. Astaxanthin may also moderate the activity of polyamines generated by exposure to sunlight.*

Joint Support: In one double-blind placebo controlled trial, BioAstin® astaxanthin significantly supported joint comfort in human volunteers. The results of another human clinical trial suggest that BioAstin® supported knee comfort and joint function after strenuous leg exercises. Subjects in a third study using BioAstin® reported enhanced wrist nerve comfort.*

Immune Support: Enhanced dietary concentrations of astaxanthin have demonstrated the ability to support healthy immunoglobulin activity and immune function. Additional studies suggest astaxanthin's immune and cellular support potential.*

Lipid And Cardiovascular Support: In another animal study, astaxanthin supported healthy lipid metabolism. Other studies are in progress to evaluate further its cardiovascular support properties. *
