Pure Encapsulations Astaxanthin Capsules Product Information
Derived from Hawaiian Haematococcus pluvialis microalgae cultivated under pristine conditions, esterfied astaxanthin is a stable, powerful, fat-soluble antioxidant from the carotenoid family. Haematococcus algae produces astaxanthin that may protect itself against ultraviolet induced free radical damage.*
Antioxidant Capacity: Astaxanthin is different from betacarotene in that it has two additional oxygenated groups on each of its ring structures, may enhance its ability to scavenge free radicals.*
Bioavailability and Stability: Astaxanthin is formulated in a base of safflower oil to potentially enhance bioavailability. Vitamin E and rosemary are added to increase stability.*
Antioxidant Support: Astaxanthin attempts to protect the phospholipid membranes of cells from oxidative damage.*
Immune Support: Dietary concentrations of astaxanthin have demonstrated the ability to potentially support healthy immunoglobulin activity and immune function.*
Astaxanthin is derived from Haematococcus pluvialis microalgae and cultivated under highly controlled conditions. In addition to astaxanthin, each softgel typically provides 40 mcg naturally occurring lutein and 65 iu naturally occurring vitamin A as beta carotene.*
