Astaxanthin is a naturally occurring carotenoid found in shrimp, krill, salmon, and microalgae. Our unique supplement contains Zanthin ®, derived from microalgae in a special growing facility in La Serena, Chile. The algae is matured in open cascading ponds until being harvested and extracted to be packaged in Florida.
Astaxanthin has the unique ability to cross the blood-brain barrier into cells of the eye and the nervous system. Astaxanthin may be capable of preventing oxidative damage in the body caused by stress and exercise. It is 6,000 times more effective in neutralizing free radicals than vitamin C.
