The Most Incredible Antioxidant You’ve Never Heard Of
Astaxanthin is known as one of the most powerful and versatile natural antioxidants that science has ever found. Period. While you might be saying “Asta-what?” this incredible member of the carotenoid family is a supplement that you should really get to know.
It’s approximately ten times stronger as an antioxidant than its other carotenoid cousins, including beta-carotene, lutein and lycopene, and ranges from one hundred times to more than one thousand times stronger than many other antioxidants.
What Is It?
Astaxanthin is a red pigment molecule found in marine Haematococcus pluvialis microalgae. When eaten by shrimp and crustaceans, it gives its red color to their shells. As astaxanthin makes its way up the food chain, the color becomes more concentrated, creating the rich reds and pinks we see in fish like salmon and in marine birds such as flamingos. As a matter of fact, the compound was first identified and isolated in 1938 by Richard Kuhn when he was studying lobsters to determine what gave them their color.
Astaxanthin is great at distributing itself throughout the entire body — into muscles and the skin, across the blood-brain barrier and the blood-retinal barrier to nourish the brain and eyes. It reaches the heart, liver, kidneys and other organs and provides them with its potent protective properties to keep cells vibrant and healthy. Learn more
