Suspended in a sunflower seed oil base for maximum absorption.
  • 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.

    Our extraction process uses supercritical CO2 extraction technology which avoids excess heat and is more environmentally friendly; it also ensures a solvent-free product.

    You may discover brands of astaxanthin that appear to be at a higher level, however this is often per serving, not per capsule. Or the active astaxanthin level is only 5%, which equates to just 0.6mg astaxanthin per capsule, whereas we guarantee 4mg per capsule.

    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.

Frequently Asked Questions (6)
Q - "Why Do You Sell Astaxanthin In Capsule Form?"
A - There is evidence to suggest absorption is increased when taken alongside a meal that contains fats or oils. To maximise absorption, we suspend the carotenoid in sunflower seed oil, with rosemary extract and vitamin E to preserve freshness.
Q - "Can Astaxanthin Offer Protection Against The Sun?"
A - There is some evidence to suggest astaxanthin, alongside other carotenoids such as lutein, may offer some protection from the suns’ UV rays when taken over several weeks; however, we would always recommend using a topical sunscreen at all times.
Q - "Can Astaxanthin Improve The Appearance Of Skin?"
A - Read our article on the links between skin health and astaxanthin here.
Q - "Can I Get Astaxanthin From Food?"
A - Salmon contains approximately 1mg astaxanthin per 4-ounce serving, however levels may degrade during cooking due to high heat and exposure to oxygen.
Q - "Why Do You Sell 4Mg When I’Ve Seen Higher Levels?"
A - They may appear to be a higher level, but the active astaxanthin level is only 5%, which equates to just 0.6mg astaxanthin per capsule, compared to ours at 4mg per capsule. Often companies quote per serving rather than per capsule.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. There is some evidence to suggest Astaxanthin may be useful for this. I recommend taking it for at least 3 months to assess the full effectiveness.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

As with the majority of our products, this should be used daily for at least three months before the effects are assessed. It would be great if you could leave a review after this time.
