So, have you heard the buzz about this incredible “new” ingredient – Astaxanthin? Well, it’s not really new, but astaxanthin is finally achieving the recognition it deserves as a powerful nutrient that can provide multiple benefits.

First, what is astaxanthin?

Astaxanthin is a carotenoid (a red pigment chemical found naturally in some plants and animals). In fact, astaxanthin is part of the reason a lobster is red and a flamingo is pink – from the red pigment astaxanthin in the algae they consume. A common source of astaxanthin comes from microalgae, but it can also be found in some yeast and foods like lobster, salmon and shrimp.

Providing amazing antioxidant capabilities, astaxanthin can work both inside and outside the cell wall, and is both fat and water soluble! These properties make astaxanthin one of the strongest antioxidants available. It has been noted that astaxanthin is a more powerful antioxidant than Vitamin C, CoQ10, or even Vitamin E. Research suggests taking astaxanthin with a lipid (fat) carrier provides the best absorption.

So what health benefits can astaxanthin support?

As this powerful antioxidant, we know neutralizing free radicals helps prevent cell damage they can cause, so that in and of itself is a great reason to consider adding astaxanthin to your supplement routine. However, there are multiple other benefits this carotenoid has been linked to like immune system support, skin hydration, memory support, heart health, muscle recovery and endurance, promotes a healthy inflammatory response, and supports eye health, just to name a few.

Additionally, taking 12mg per day of astaxanthin, research indicates this powerful antioxidant improves mood, supports mental health wellness, both of which are in the forefront of many health concerns today. And a great supplement to consider would be the Country Life Vitamins Astaxanthin Max™ 12 mg product.

This product is one softgel once a day to supply this amazing antioxidant. Formulated with a lipid (fat) carrier to aid absorption and packaged in convenient blister packs, Country Life Astaxanthin Max™ should be your go to supplement in the antioxidant category.
