AstaXanthin (asta-zan-thin) is a naturally occurring Carotenoids pigment which is a powerful biological antioxidant.
Strong Sun Light, toxins, starchy carbohydrates, lack of fruit and vegetables and modern day living is creating huge amounts of free radical oxidation in our bodies. Only eating 12-14 portions of fruits and vegetables can provide enough antioxidants to clear these free radicles. Studies have shown that a new antioxidant exhibits strong free radical scavenging activities and protect against lipid peroxidation and oxidative damage of LDL-cholesterol, cell membranes, cells, tissues and may prevent damage to the retina caused by strong sunlight.
Our product is made using BioAstin® Natural Astaxanthin, the world’s best selling brand of Astaxanthin for humans. It was the first source of Astaxanthin for human nutrition reviewed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In August 1999, BioAstin completed a review by the FDA without objection and was allowed to be sold in the United States as a human dietary supplement.
BioAstin’s benefits derive from its superior antioxidant activity and from its ability to support and maintain natural inflammatory response, enhancing skin, muscle and joint health.
Research has also shown that natural AstaXanthin has up to 550 times the antioxidant activity of vitamin E and 10 times the antioxidant activity of beta-carotene. AstaXanthin has been the focus of a large and growing number of peer-reviewed scientific publications.
