This amazing carotenoid is one of nature’s most potent antioxidants, being closely related to other carotenoids such as zeaxanthin and lutein.We use a natural material derived from the freshwater green algae, Haematococcus pluvialis, in the natural 3S - 3’S form. Synthetic astaxanthin is Rs-3S or RS-R’S and whilst it is cheaper it is not known if this is active or safe.The algae we use is cultivated in a climate-controlled environment, in a closed system in the Arava desert. The 3 month cultivation process, mimics astaxanthin accumulation in nature and produces an exceptionally pure and high-quality microalgae when compared to the astaxanthin grown in outdoor ponds.Two capsules deliver a full 8mg of natural, active astaxanthin, a level comparable with published studies. Plus, natural vitamin E, which contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.IngredientsVitamin E, Astaxanthin (provided by Haematococcus pluvialis extract).
