Product Details

Product Code: astaxanthin-PEC-120-sfgls

Quantity per Container: 120 Softgels


Derived from Hawaiian Haematococcus pluvialis microalgae cultivated under pristine conditions, esterfied astaxanthin is a stable, powerful, fat-soluble antioxidant from the carotenoid family. Haematococcus algae produces astaxanthin to protect itself against ultraviolet induced free radical damage.

Astaxanthin is different from beta-carotene in that it has two additional oxygenated groups on each of its ring structures, enhancing its ability to scavenge free radicals. It is believed to be several hundred times more effective than vitamin E in neutralizing singlet oxygen molecules and has been shown to exert greater antioxidant activity than both zeaxanthin and lutein.

I have dry eyes which have irritated my optic and cranial nerves and this is one of the products my doctor recommended.

I started taking Astaxanthin a month before recent travels which took me to South America. It helped my skin tremenously as I could be in hot sun and did not suffer sun sensitivities/sunburns like in the past.
