Weight: 0,05 kg




Astaxanthin, a member of the carotenoid family, is a powerful antioxidant.  Astaxanthin has also been shown to prevent low-density lipoprotein oxidation in human blood and to enhance the immune system in animal studies. Astaxanthin is one of the natural pigments known as carotenoids. In nature, carotenoids are produced principally by plants and their microscopic relatives, the microalgae. Animals, including humans, are not able synthesize carotenoids; thus ultimately they must obtain these pigments from the plants and algae.

Astaxanthin is the carotenoid responsible for the pink pigmentation in the flesh of salmon, lobster, krill and other aquatic animals and plants. Carotenoids are the red, orange and yellow plant pigments that give fruits and vegetables their vivid colors. Many carotenoids act as antioxidants to protect our cells from free radicals. Astaxanthin works in conjunction with other antioxidants to protect the membranes of cells as well as the mitochondria, the tiny energy factories inside cells. Puritan,s Astaxanthin is derived from a vegetarian source—marine algae cultivated in the warm waters of Hawaii’s Kona Coast.
