DESCRIPTION LABEL INFO REFERENCES
Natural Astaxanthin by Healthy Origins is a carotenoid produced from Haematococcus Pluvialis microalgae.

Carotenoids are organic pigments that naturally occur in plants and other photosynthetic organisms. These organic pigments are responsible for giving many plants, fruits, and sea life their vibrant colors.

There are over 600 known cartenoids which are broken down into 2 groups: Xanthophylis and Carotenes.

One of the most important carotenoids in the Xanthophyll group is the super antioxidant Astaxanthin. Astaxanthin is found in microalgae, yeast, salmon, trout, krill, shrimp, crayfish, crustaceans, and in the feathers of some birds.

About Natural Astaxanthin

  • Pain and Inflammation: Astaxanthin blocks COX2 enzymes, and has been proven to suppress serum levels of nitric oxide, interleukin 1B, prostaglandin E2, C Reactive Protein (CRP) and TNF-alpha (tumor necrosis factor alpha).(1)
  • Fatigue: Provides recovery of muscles, improved endurance, strength, and energy levels.(2,3,4)
  • Cell Health: A 2007 study found astaxanthin to be 6,000 times stronger than vitamin C, 800 times stronger than CoQ10, 550 times stronger than green tea catechins, and 75 times stronger than alpha lipoic acid.(5)
  • Eye Health: Clinical trials have shown that astaxanthin helps diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, eye strain and fatigue and seeing in fine detail.(6,7,8,9,10,11)
