Astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant, shown to be up to 500 times more potent than vitamin E, up to 10 times more potent than beta carotene and up to 5 times more potent than lutein. Because astaxanthin freely crosses the blood-brain and blood-retina barriers, astaxanthin can readily neutralize free-radicals and other reactive species in the eye and nervous system. Protection of the eye and brain tissue from oxidative stress could potentially provide valuable support for both eye and brain health. It has also shown to have excellent benefits for the cardiovascular system as well. This incredible antioxidant has also been shown to increase stamina, making it easier for those who exercise frequently to get through grueling workouts. One of the most remarkable recent discoveries found that astaxanthin significantly reduced the amount of DNA damage in humans. The astaxanthin used in this product is all-natural and not synthetic, manufactured from the microalgae Haematococcus pluvialis grown in closed culture using ultra-pure water – this is unlike many other varieties that are made synthetically instead of being harvested naturally to retain the ingredient in its purest form.
Each bottle contains 30 vegan softgels at 4mg of vegan Astaxanthin per capsule. $8.49 per bottle.
this is a great vegan anti-oxidant. i use it with vitamin c and Q-10 during winter. my partner and i rarely get sick now. however, if you order it during warm months, the olive oil starts to seep out of the vitamin. vegan essentials assured me it was still safe to take, but it stains your hands purple and you can't return it. buy in the fall/winter and it is awesome.
