Deva Astaxanthin Super Antioxidant
Astaxanthin is one of a group of natural pigments known as carotenoids. In nature, carotenoids are produced principally by plants and their microscopic relatives. Animals cannot synthesize carotenoids and thus all natural carotenoids are first made in plants.As an antioxidant, astaxanthin has been shown to be up to 500 times more powerful than Vitamin E and more than 10 times as potent as beta-carotene.* As an antioxidant, astaxanthin was shown in ORAC testing to be up to 5 times more potent than Lutein.* A variety of scientific studies have shown significant health benefits from astaxanthin*. Because astaxanthin freely crosses the blood-brain and blood-retina barriers, astaxanthin may help neutralize free-radicals in the eye and nervous system.
Astaxanthin used in this product is from a natural source: microalgae Haematococcus pluvialis, grown in closed culture .* Extraction of astaxanthin from the algal biomass is done by CO2 extraction and without the use of harsh solvents. Our Vegan Astaxanthin has 4 mg of astaxanthin per vegan capsule, which is many times stronger than a lot of astaxanthin products sold on the market.
