Product Information

A naturally occurring carotenoid, astaxanthin is closely related to zeaxanthin and lutein, nutrients widely known for supporting eye health. It’s also unparalleled in its antioxidant activity, helping to protect free radical damage and oxidative stress in the body – helpful in supporting heart and brain health.

Our high-performance formula provides 4mg of natural astaxanthin in each easy-to-swallow, taste-free capsule, similar to the levels used in published studies.

We’ve chosen to suspend our formula in sunflower seed oil to aid absorption. Capsules are better suited to oil-based materials, which is why we’ve decided to use them over tablets.

We source our raw material from the freshwater green microalgae, Haematococcus Pluvialis, making it a natural – not synthetic – source. Our formula benefits from a 3-month cultivation process, which mimics astaxanthin accumulation in nature. This technique also produces exceptionally pure and high-quality microalgae compared to that grown in outdoor ponds.

Unlike many other companies, we manufacture and package our high-strength formula in UK factories working to strict Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) to ensure our quality standards are met.

This product is suitable for both vegetarians and vegans.
