Nutritional Supplement Features:
AstaXanthin - Possibly the most potent natural antioxidant ever discovered. It is the pigment that turns flamingos, salmon and shrimp pink. AstaXanthin has tremendous promise for health and wellbeing, particularly for:
- maintaining eyesight
- visible signs of ageing of the skin
- heart and arteries
- the digestive system
- muscle endurance
AstaXanthin is the ultimate antioxidant - it is said to have up to 550 times the antioxidant capacity of Vitamin E, and up to 10 times the antioxidant capacities of Beta Carotene and Lutein.
It may help reduce the visible signs of premature ageing and protect the skin from UVA and UVB damage.
In addition, it is one of the few antioxidants able to cross the blood-retina barrier and protect the eyes from free radical and UV damage. Reducing free radical damage is considered important in keeping the eyes healthy into old age.
When you add other antioxidants to Astaxanthin (for example Superphyte) these will protect the potency of Astaxanthin, which, in itself, can enhance the action of other antioxidants such as Vitamins C and E. In other words, taking a combination of antioxidants is more beneficial.
