Astaxanthin is one of nature's most powerful antioxidants, known as the "king of carotenoids". It is significantly more potent, in terms of quenching free radicals, than other members of the carotenoid family. Astaxanthin Plus by Natural Factors combines astaxanthin with lutein and zeaxanthin to protect against oxidative damage, providing cardiovascular and immune system support and protecting the skin from premature ageing and other health risks associated with UV exposure. Astaxanthin also has gastro-protective effects and helps support eye health.

Astaxanthin Plus contains non-GMO ingredients, including AstaREAL natural astaxanthin made from the microalgae Haematococcus pluvialis. AstaREAL is produced by fermentation and is significantly more effective at scavenging free radicals than the synthetic form, which is made with petrochemicals. Although the body is equipped with its own natural antioxidant defences, they can become overwhelmed by overexposure to everyday environmental factors such as pollution and stress, as well as by the production of reactive oxygen species that are a result of normal metabolic processes. Adding an antioxidant supplement such as Astaxanthin Plus to your daily routine will provide the extra assistance that the body's natural defence mechanisms need in order to maintain optimal health.

Main features

  • Natural astaxanthin has greater biological activity than synthetic astaxanthin.
  • AstaREAL is one of the most studied brands of astaxanthin in the world.
  • Contains lutein and zeaxanthin for additional antioxidant support.
  • Unlike most antioxidants, astaxanthin is both lipid and water soluble Non-GMO formula in a base of organic flaxseed oil.

How it works

Most antioxidants are either hydrophilic (water soluble) or lipophilic (lipid soluble), meaning that their activity is limited to protection of the lipid (fat) component of cells, or to the aqueous (water) part of cells. Water-soluble antioxidants such as vitamin C offer protection to the blood and the fluids within and around cells. Lipid-soluble antioxidants such as vitamin E are located in cell membranes, protecting the exterior of the cells from oxidation. Both types of antioxidants are required for complete cellular protection. Astaxanthin is unique in that it is both water and lipid-soluble. Its chemical structure allows it to be present both inside and outside the cells, offering better overall protection against oxidative damage.
