Exceptionally powerful antioxidant protection, Astaxanthin is one of the most powerful natural antioxidants available - more powerful even than Vitamin E, Beta Carotene or Lutein. Like Lutein and Zeaxanthin, but unlike other carotenoids, Astaxanthin can enter the eye, where it provides antioxidant support to the retina and supports sharp vision. Astaxanthin may help maintain a healthy cardiovascular system, by supporting healthy cholesterol levels and low C-reactive protein levels. It helps protect DNA against free radicals (unstable oxygen molecules, which if left unchecked can severely damage cells). It also helps protect cells against free radicals, thereby helping prolong the ageing process. Astaxanthin helps maintain healthy joints by favourably influencing the condition of cartilage. And it helps support balanced energy levels and healthy immune function.
Astaxanthin gives flamingos their brilliant pink plumage, and colours wild salmon, and cooked prawns and lobsters, pink. It is thought that this pink pigmentation offers natural protection against harmful UV light. More and more farmed fish are appearing in our diets. But farmed fish are commonly fed synthetic Astaxanthin, to give them the pink pigmentation we expect to see, and this synthetic Astaxanthin is of little use to humans. So we are getting less Astaxanthin in our diet than ever before.
Higher Nature's Astaxanthin is obtained from an unpolluted source of the aquatic plant Haematococcus pluvialis. Best absorbed when taken with a meal containing olive (or other vegetable) oil. Astaxanthin is protected within the vegetable capsule with natural antioxidants: Mixed Carotenoids (alpha and beta carotene, lutein and lycopene), Rosemary leaf and Vitamins C and E. Blackcurrants are an excellent source of antioxidant anthocyanidins, polyphenols and Vitamin C. Their potency may be three times greater than blueberries.
Available in easy-to-swallow, vegetable capsules.
