Derived from microalgae and dubbed “The King of the Carotenoids” Astaxanthin is a potent antioxidant with a broad range of reported health benefits.
Astaxanthin Provides Excellent Recovery from Exercise.
Ever wonder where salmon get their pink color from. In the animal kingdom, astaxanthin is found in the highest concentration in the muscles of salmon. Scientists theorize this carotenoid helps provide the endurance these remarkable animals need to swim upstream. Just like salmon making the heroic upstream swim, astaxanthin can help athletes do their best. Pure natural astaxanthin is indicated for recovery of muscles, better endurance, enhanced strength and improved energy levels.
Astaxanthin May Help Relieve Pain and Inflammation
Like most antioxidants, astaxanthin is a potent anti-inflammatory. Researchers believe that Astaxanthin is remarkably effective at reducing chronic inflammation because it is able to block pain signals in a similiar fashion to NSAID pain releivers. And unlike NSAID pain relievers, there are no adverse side effects.
Astaxanthin Supports Eye Health
Unlike other carotenoids, Astaxanthin has the unique ability to cross the blood-brain barrier and reach the retina. There are several well designed clinical trials which show that astaxanthin helps diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, eye strain and fatigue and seeing in fine detail.
Internal Sunscreen Protection
Astaxanthin has been shown to protect the body's largest organ, the skin. Due to its potent antioxidant properties, astaxanthin has been show to reduce damage caused by ultraviolet radiation from the sun. In addition, studies show excellent results for helping with skin moisture levels, smoothness, elasticity, fine wrinkles, and spots or freckles.
Enhanced Delivery System
The biggest challenge with deriving maximum benefits from Astaxanthin is the normally limited absorption rates – as low as 50%
Research shows that by incorporating phospholipids, absorption of astaxanthin may be enhanced several fold.
Our premium Astaxanthin with Phospholipids combines 4 milligrams of natural astaxanthin with a proprietary blend of phospholipids to facilitate maximum absorption into the bloodstream.

- I take Astaxanthin because of all the benefits I read about it.
I have experienced far less inflammation ask over my body which is something I have battled for years. I'm very sensitive to sodium and preservatives in foods. The more poor and healthy I eat, the more I can tell how these things affect me with inflammation in those rare times that I eat them. I have seen a chiropractor most of my adult life due to an auto accident when I was younger. I no longer have severe pain and since I will not take anti inflammatory medicine this is the answer for me.
- still deciding
No bad effects, still deciding, will take another bottle.
