Benefits at a Glance Promotes eye health Powerful antioxidant with whole-body health benefits Highly absorbable formula Includes proprietary phospholipid blend Astaxanthin has long been a critical nutrient for eye support. This powerful carotenoid crosses the blood-eye barrier, supporting vascular health within the eye, and protecting the eyes' sensitive cells. In addition to its ocular benefits, new research continues to demonstrate astaxanthin’s total body health benefits. It has been shown to optimize joint, immune, brain, cardiovascular, DNA, and mitochondrial health. Research has also revealed that astaxanthin can help support healthy blood sugar levels for those who are already in the normal range. But because astaxanthin is a fat-soluble antioxidant, its absorption has typically been low. In fact, some studies show that as little as 50% of oral astaxanthin is absorbed into your bloodstream. To address this problem, Life Extension blended 4 mg of natural astaxanthin with a proprietary blend of 80 mg of four phospholipids in its Astaxanthin with Phospholipids to facilitate maximum absorption of astaxanthin into the bloodstream, where it’s transported to cells throughout the body. This formulation has been shown to enhance carotenoid absorption by several-fold, so you can enjoy the full benefits of this powerful and natural antioxidant. Support your ocular and whole-body health. Add this highly absorbable astaxanthin formulation to your regimen.
