When it comes to nature’s most potent antioxidants, few can rival the amazing strength and potency of astaxanthin. Because of its oxygen-quenching properties, astaxanthin helps prevent damaging oxidation in the body. It is at least 10X more powerful than other antioxidant carotenoids, such as zeaxanthin, lutein and beta-carotene. It is even 100X stronger than vitamin E.
- 6,000x stronger antioxidant power than vitamin C
- 800x better at singlet oxygen quenching than CoQ10
- 550x stronger than green tea catechins and vitamin E
- 75x stronger than alpha-lipoic acid
- 54x more effective at free radical scavenging than beta-carotene
- Offers one of the highest concentrations of carotenoids found in nature
Compared to other antioxidants, astaxanthin is truly one of the most powerful and effective free-radical scavengers that can be absorbed by the human body. It is simply more powerful and effective at some physiological processes. Furthermore, astaxanthin does not become a pro-oxidant in the body, setting it apart from other less effective antioxidants.
WHAT IS ASTAXANTHIN AND WHAT MAKES IT A MIRACLE ANTIOXIDANT?
Often called the “King of Carotenoids,” astaxanthin is a fat-soluble keto-carotenoid that belongs to the same family as beta-carotene, lycopene and lutein. It can provide a multitude of health benefits, such as supporting the healthy functions of your skin, heart, eyes, joints and immune system. While it can be found in a wide variety of organisms, astaxanthin is primarily produced in the wild by single-celled microalgae. With the help of astaxanthin, these remarkable microorganisms can survive for years without food or water, under harsh sunlight.
When other aquatic animals, such as shrimp, trout and salmon, consume large quantities of these microalgae, these marine creatures gain their distinctive reddish or pinkish colors, along with enhanced vitality.
As a dietary supplement, astaxanthin acts as a powerful lipid-soluble antioxidant that can help maintain healthy strength, endurance and stamina. It can also help support normal recovery after exertion and scavenge for free radicals. Chief Originals® Astaxanthin is derived entirely from high-quality microalgae, the most stable and sustainable source of astaxanthin available today. (It's from Mother Nature, in other words, not synthetic sources.) These all-natural microalgae are carefully grown in a lab-controlled environment to prevent contamination from open-air pollutants.
