Pure Encapsulations Astaxanthin offers support for the cardiovascular system, joints, skin, and immune system. Astaxanthin is an antioxidant with many health benifits. It is a pigment that is found in trout, yeast and shrimp, along with many other sea creatures. Most commonly found in Pacific salmon , it is what gives the fish its pinkish color. Astaxanthin is an antioxidant that never becomes a pro-oxidant in the body, so it can never cause harmful oxidation. Recomended usage: 1 capsule, 1-3 times daily with meals, or as directed by a healthcare professional.

Supports Cardiovascular system
Antioxidant support for skin, joints, the immune system and the cardiovascular system*
Made with hypoallergenic ingredients
Astaxanthin is an antioxidant formula that helps support the natural antioxidant defenses of the skin and joints as well as promote immune system and cardiovascular system health.*
Antioxidant for the skin, macula, joints, immune system and cardiovascular function* *Derived from Haematococcus pluvialis microalgae cultivated under pristine conditions, esterified astaxanthin is a stable, fat-soluble antioxidant from the carotenoid family. Astaxanthin protects the phospholipid membranes of cells from oxidative damage. In a recent U.S. study, it demonstrated the ability to cross the blood brain barrier and protect the retina in animals, suggesting its potential for supporting the brain and nervous system from free radical damage. Initial trials with astaxanthin suggest that it may support the skin
Uses For Astaxanthin Antioxidant Support: Astaxanthin protects the phospholipid membranes of cells from oxidative damage. In a recent U.S. study, it demonstrated the ability to cross the blood brain barrier and protect the retina in animals, suggesting its potential for supporting the brain and nervous system from free radical damage. In one animal study, astaxanthin helped to maintain a healthy bacterial environment in the stomach.*
Skin Support: Initial trials with astaxanthin suggest that it may boost the skin's natural antioxidant defenses against ultraviolet induced free radicals. In a human clinical evaluation, supplementation with astaxanthin for two weeks provided significant antioxidant protection for the skin. In cell cultures, astaxanthin provided greater protection than both beta-carotene and lutein, in part by supporting catalase and superoxide dismutase activity. Astaxanthin may also moderate the activity of polyamines generated by exposure to sunlight.*
Joint Support: In one double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, astaxanthin significantly supported joint comfort in human volunteers. The results of another human clinical trial suggest that astaxanthin supported knee comfort and joint function after strenuous leg exercises. Subjects in a third study using astaxanthin reported enhanced wrist nerve comfort.*
Immune Support: Enhanced dietary concentrations of astaxanthin have demonstrated the ability to support healthy immunoglobulin activity and immune function. Additional studies suggest astaxanthin's immune and cellular support potential.*
Lipid And Cardiovascular Support: In another animal study, astaxanthin supported healthy lipid metabolism. Other studies are in progress to evaluate further its cardiovascular support properties.*
