Derived from Haematococcus Pluvialis microalgae cultivated under pristine conditions, esterified astaxanthin is a stable, fat-soluble antioxidant from the carotenoid family.
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.
- Initial trials suggest that it may support the skin’s natural antioxidant defenses.
- In a human clinical evaluation, supplementation with astaxanthin provided enhanced antioxidant protection for the skin.
- Additional studies suggest immune, cellular and cardiovascular support potential.
