  • What Is It?

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

    Features Include:

    Enhanced Antioxidant Capacity: 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.*

    Bioavailability And Stability: BioAstin astaxanthin is
    formulated in a base of safflower oil to enhance
    bioavailability. Vitamin E and rosemary are added to enhance stability.
    Clinically Studied: Astaxanthin has been and will continue
    to be clinically studied.

    Patents: The producers of BioAstin hold three patents for use as a human nutraceutical. US Patents 6,258,855, 6,344,210 and 6,433,025. BioAstin is a registered
    trademark of Cyanotech Corporation.

    Uses For Astaxanthin

    Antioxidant Support: Astaxanthin protects the phospholipid membranes of cells from oxidative damage. In a recent U.S. study, it demonstrated the ability to cross the blood brain barrier and protect the retina in animals,
    suggesting its potential for supporting the brain and
    nervous system from free radical damage. In one animal study, astaxanthin helped to maintain a healthy bacterial
    environment in the stomach.*

    Skin Support: Initial trials with astaxanthin suggest that
    it may boost the skin's natural antioxidant defenses
    against ultraviolet induced free radicals. In a human
    clinical evaluation, supplementation with BioAstin
    astaxanthin for two weeks provided significant
    antioxidant protection for the skin. In cell cultures,
    astaxanthin provided greater protection than both
    beta-carotene and lutein, in part by supporting catalase and superoxide dismutase activity. Astaxanthin may
    also moderate the activity of polyamines generated by
    exposure to sunlight.*

    Joint Support: In one double-blind placebo controlled trial, BioAstin astaxanthin significantly supported joint comfort in human volunteers. The results of another human clinical trial suggest that BioAstin supported
    knee comfort and joint function after strenuous leg
    exercises. Subjects in a third study using BioAstin reported
    enhanced wrist nerve comfort.*

    Immune Support: Enhanced dietary concentrations of astaxanthin have demonstrated the ability to support healthy immunoglobulin activity and immune function. Additional studies suggest astaxanthin's immune and
    cellular support potential.*

    Lipid And Cardiovascular Support: In another animal study, astaxanthin supported healthy lipid metabolism. Other studies are in progress to evaluate further its
    cardiovascular support properties. *

    What Is The Source?

    Astaxanthin is derived from Haematococcus pluvialis
    microalgae and cultivated under highly controlled
    conditions. In addition to astaxanthin, each softgel
    typically provides 40 mcg naturally occurring lutein and 65 i.u. naturally occurring vitamin A as beta carotene. Vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol) is derived from soybean oil.
