Product Information

This amazing carotenoid is closely related to zeaxanthin and lutein, nutrients known for supporting eye health. Astaxanthin is also one of nature's most potent antioxidants, which helps support the body's cells/collagen from free radical damage/oxidative stress, linked to the ageing process. Each capsule delivers 4mg of natural, active astaxanthin; a level comparable with published studies.

Synthetic versus natural form
We use a raw material derived from the freshwater green algae, Haematococcus pluvialis, a natural rather than synthetic form.

The algae are cultivated in a climate-controlled environment, in the Arava desert. The 3-month cultivation process, mimics astaxanthin accumulation in nature and produces an exceptionally pure and high-quality microalgae, compared to the astaxanthin grown in outdoor ponds.

The supercritical CO2 extraction technology avoids excess heat and is more environmentally friendly being solar panel driven. The result- a solvent-free product.

Buyer Beware!
Brands described as Astaxanthin 12mg may appear more potent however this is often per serving not per capsule. Or, the active astaxanthin level is only 5%, which equates to just 0.6 mg astaxanthin per capsule!
Daily Intake
Take 1 to 2 capsules daily with a meal.
Do not exceed recommended daily dose.
Food supplements should not replace a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.

"Contains Carrageenan - Which Causes Stomach Aches In Many People"
By Anonymous , 19 Nov 2021
I would buy this item but I know from experience that carrageenan causes me digestive issues and-according to research - can contribute to ulcerative colitis.
Many people are sensitive to this ingredient, in my experience particularly anyone who ever gets IBS (constipation, diarrhoea or bloating), has Ulcerative Colitis (UC) and people on the autism spectrum.
Please change the formuation as I am keen to purchase it regularly.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

We try to make as many supplements as possible suitable for vegetarians. Carageenan is an excellent alternative to gelatin and is used in the manufacture of vegetarian soft gel capsules. It is derived from seaweed and is approved in use for foods by regulatory bodies and also has a long history of use in food products, generally as a gelling and thickening agent.



There is a lot of information regarding the safety of this ingredient and many of the concerns are related to the fact that it can be degraded by exposure to high temperatures to a substance called poligeenan. This has been linked in few studies with higher incidence of gastro-intestinal ulcers. However, we only use food grade carageenan, not poligeenan, in our products and they are not exposed to high temperatures during the manufacturing process.

In addition to this, the Scientific Committee for Food (SCF) has endorsed an Acceptable Daily Intake of up to 75mg of carageenan per kilogram of body weight, per day. All of our supplements contain only very small amounts of this compound and it is accepted as a food additive in Europe and considered to be safe.
