Astaxanthin is a natural antioxidant which comes from marine sources such as algae or shellfish like krill or shrimp. This carotenoid is actually responsible for the red colour of shrimp, krill and salmon, as they feed almost exclusively on astaxanthin rich algae. Astaxanthin may be beneficial for numerous cardiovascular, immune and inflammatory problems.
Like many other antioxidants it can protect the body cells from oxidative damage from free radicals. Oxidative stress is one of the largest sources of premature aging of cells, so you would be wise to take preventative measures against it. This protection has the effect of providing both heart and immune support.
Astaxanthin can also help as a natural anti-inflammatory which can block some of the triggers which cause inflammation before it happens, rather than just relieving the pain associated with it.
Astaxanthin occurs naturally in our ever popular krill oil supplements, but there are also supplements which extract the astaxanthin from the algal source H. pluvialis. Take a look at our extensive range of supplements available in many forms including capsule, soft gels and powders and find out which one suits your needs best.
