Astaxanthin is a natural, red component of a fresh water-plant, which offers exceptionally strong antioxidant activity.

Best Astaxanthin supplies natural astaxanthin, an extremely valuable carotenoid nutrient, along with other naturally occurring carotenoids. Astaxanthin is an ultra potent antioxidant with unique effects on cell membranes that manage important life functions. This action is linked to clinically proven benefits for the circulation and for vision, immunity, and overall well-being. Doctor’s Best is pleased to offer this breakthrough nutrient at clinical potency.

Potent antioxidant
Best Astaxanthin is stronger than natural antioxidants like beta-carotene and up to 100 times stronger than Vitamin E as an antioxidant. The unique structural aspects allow it to pass the "blood brain barrier", meaning it can deliver antioxidant activity benefits not only through the blood stream to the cells of the skin, muscles and organs but also directly to the brain, eyes and nervous system. Best Astaxanthin is a potent antioxidant that also helps recycle other antioxidants like Vitamin E, betacarotene, lycopene and glutathione – switching them back “on” and prolonging their functional life.

Helps recovery time after exercise
The active component in Best Astaxanthin appears to assist muscle function by reducing free radical damage during heavy exercise, thus allowing muscles to use more oxygen efficiently and recover quickly.

Sun protection
Astaxanthin complements the body’s own antioxidant defence system and thereby helps to prevent skin damage. Scientists believe Astaxanthin works by helping to preserve and enhance the protective effects of substances such as Vitamin E, Vitamin C, beta carotene, superoxide dismutase and catalase at the skins structure. These effects may help reduce the acute inflammation reaction of the skin and tissue that follows excessive exposure to UV radiation, which leads to sunburn and damage.

What gives Astaxanthin it's red colour?
Astaxanthin is found in the RED algae called Haematococcus pluvialis. It is a type of carotenoid, and the naturally bright colour gives marine animals such as salmon, lobster, shrimps their naturally bright colour.

Why is Astaxanthin considered a better antioxidant than vitamin E?
Research has shown that Astaxanthin is up to 100 times stronger than vitamin E. The unique structure allows it to pass through the blood/brain barrier. It also helps recycle other antioxidants such as vitamin E.
