-Supports healthy blood flow and vessel integrity

Astaxanthin is a keto-carotenoid that belongs to a larger class of chemical compounds known as Terpenes—these biological compounds have a unique composition consisting of five carbon precursors. Astaxanthin is stronger than natural antioxidants like beta-carotene and up to 100 times stronger than Vitamin E. The antioxidant benefits are directly delivered to the brain, eyes and nervous system owing to its unique structural aspects that allow it to pass the blood brain barrier. This far-reaching antioxidant activity can help to boost your overall immunity levels and fight away signs of ageing.

Potent antioxidant:

Best Astaxanthin is stronger than natural antioxidants like beta-carotene and up to 100 times stronger than vitamin E as an antioxidant. The unique structural aspects allow it to pass the "blood brain barrier", meaning it can deliver antioxidant activitybenefits not only through the blood stream to the cells of the skin, muscles and organs but also directly to the brain, eyes and nervous system. Best Astaxanthin is active throughout the entire body - a far-reaching and potent antioxidant that also helps recycle other antioxidants like vitamin E, beta-carotene, lycopene and glutathione – switching them back “on” and prolongingtheir functional life.

Helps recovery time after exercise

The active component in Best Astaxanthin appears to assist muscle function by reducing free radical damage during heavy exercise, thus allowing muscles to use more oxygen efficiently and recover quickly.

Sun protection

Astaxanthin complements and participates in the body’s own antioxidant defence system and thereby helps to prevent skin damage. Scientists believe astaxanthin works by helping to preserve and enhance the protective effects of substances such as Vitamin E, Vitamin C, beta carotene, superoxide dismutase and catalase at the skins structure. These effects (in combination or separately) may reduce the acute inflammation reaction of the skin and tissue just below the skin that follows excessive exposure to UV radiation, which leads to sunburn and damage.
