Astaxanthin is a naturally-occurring carotenoid found in microalgae. It causes the pink or red colour in salmon, trout, shrimp, lobster, crab and other seafood. Carotenoids are pigment colours that occur in nature and support good health. Astaxanthin is a powerful carotenoid antioxidant with broad health benefits. It is FAR more potent than many other antioxidants. A 2007 Japanese study found astaxanthin exhibited the most potent singlet oxygen quenching activity among the antioxidants tested. It was: • 6,000 times stronger than vitamin C (as ascorbic acid) • 550 times stronger than green tea catechins • 75 times stronger than alpha lipoic acid • 5 times more powerful than beta-carotene. *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. *Consult your physician before beginning any dietary supplements.
