Tough to pronounce. Impossible to ignore. Astaxanthin is one of the most versatile natural antioxidants, active in all parts of the body. Highly potent in its own right, it may also maximize the body's use of carotenoids and vitamins A and E. Astaxanthin may also enhance the skin's natural protection.

The Source: Solgar's Astaxanthin is a high-performance carotenoid harvested off the Hawaiian coast. This organism provides the most concentrated source of Astaxanthin known delivering 10,000 - 40,00 mg/kg.
The Advantages: Laboratory studies reveal that Astaxanthin is considerably more effective than vitamins A and E and traditional carotenoids like lutein and beta-carotene in scavenging damaging oxidants such as singlet oxygen, and hydroxyl and peroxyl radicals. These oxidants can cause cell damage that may play a role in aging and disease. In one study, the effective dose of Astaxanthin was 100 times lower than that of vitamin E and beta-carotene.
The Versatility:The Unique structure of Astaxanthin allows it to exist in both lipid and aqueous environments. As a result, Astaxanthin is a far-reaching antioxidant, active throughout the body. It also recycles other antioxidants like vitamin E, beta carotene, lycopene and gluthathione - switching them back "on" and prolonging their functional life.
The Protection:Research shows that Astaxanthin may also enhance the skin's natural protection, playing a similar role to vitamin A, by weakening the production of free radicals which can lead to tissue damage.
