Astaxanthin is a unique carotenoid compound found in abundance in marine environments, particularly in algae. Astaxanthin is what gives red algae its colour and subsequently salmon their pink flesh when they consume the algae. Astaxanthin is considered a far more powerful antioxidant than beta-carotene or vitamin E, because unlike most other antioxidants, it does not create a free radical itself after quenching one, and can therefore quench numerous radicals in a row. This allows it to protect cell membrane lipids from free radical damage.
Many supplements provide astaxanthin extracted from krill. AOR’s Astaxanthin 4 mg provides a high-quality source of this unique and powerful antioxidant from sustainable Haematococcus pluvialis algae.
Astaxanthin is a unique carotenoid that offers exceptional protection to the cell membrane from lipid peroxidation. Lipid peroxidation also plays a role in aging, atherosclerosis and free radical mediated cell damage.
