Asta what?

Pronounced "Asta" "Zan" "Thin" (astaxanthin) is not only a powerful carotenoid (antioxidant), but it's nature's MOST powerful antioxidant!

Once while listening to a health podcast, I learned about this wonderful antioxidant and I just had to get my hands on it!

After all, if it's "nature's most powerful antioxidant" with incredible benefits, I just had to have it.

Not just that though, I had to make it available to our customers.

Today's blog is all about astaxanthin, what it is and what it can do so buckle up your seatbelt because you're in for one heck of a ride!

Now being an avid health enthusiast, you're probably well-aware of the importance of antioxidants for good health.

We know that antioxidants come from fruit (especially berries, cherries and purple grapes) but also veggies, nuts, cacao, green tea, and microalgaes.

Microalgae such as spirulina, chlorella and haematococcus pluvialis.

It is haematococcus pluvialis that you find astaxanthin, as well as salmon, lobster and prawns. In fact, it is the red pigment (part of the carotenoid family) that give the uniquer colour to the above foods.

Why You Should Care

If you care as much about your health (as we think you do), you will be very interested to learn about what astaxanthin can do for you.

It is after all, "nature's most powerful antioxidant" and antioxidants can help us greatly! 

The potential benefits of astaxantin include:

  • Skin health 
  • Help to up your natural protection from the sun*
  • Improve ageing
  • Improving eye health
  • Improving joint health
  • Improving immune function
  • Improving inflammation
  • Improving cholesterol levels
  • Boosting antioxidant levels greatly
  • Improving oxidative stress 
  • Improving/boosting energy levels

*Carotenoids know how to get your skin surface really really well. This can make you more resilient to the sun. Biohacker and entrepreneur, Amitay Eshel said this about taking astaxanthin:

"Supplementing on a regular basis with astaxanthin is equal to upping your natural protection form the sun by about SPF5".
