Product Details

We tend to associate carotenoids with hearty veggies, but astaxanthin is most commonly found in shrimp, salmon, and even healthy algae. We source ours from bright red Haematococcus pluvialis via our collaboration with Algatechnologies Ltd. Natural algae-derived astaxanthin like ours is the only form of the carotenoid with a clinical backing. Like its other colorful cousins, this pigment has been linked to healthy cardiovascular and immune systems. Even more exciting? Its effect on the aging process. Because it can fight off oxidative damage so effectively,1 it is thought that it supports the body's natural response to stress, and as a result supports healthy aging.2*
