Astaxanthin is one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants, known as the “king of carotenoids”. It is significantly more potent, in terms of quenching free radicals, than other members of the carotenoid family. Astaxanthin Plus by Natural Factors combines astaxanthin with lutein and zeaxanthin to protect against oxidative damage, providing cardiovascular and immune system support and protecting the skin from premature aging and other health risks associated with UV exposure. Astaxanthin also has gastro-protective effects and helps support eye health.
Astaxanthin Plus contains non-GMO ingredients, including AstaREAL natural astaxanthin made from the microalgae Haematococcus pluvialis. AstaREAL is produced by fermentation and is significantly more effective at scavenging free radicals than the synthetic form, which is made with petrochemicals. Although the body is equipped with its own natural antioxidant defences, they can become overwhelmed by overexposure to everyday environmental factors such as pollution and stress, as well as by the production of reactive oxygen species that are a result of normal metabolic processes. Adding an antioxidant supplement such as Astaxanthin Plus to your daily routine will provide the extra assistance that the body’s natural defence mechanisms need in order to maintain optimal health.
