Carotenoids are plant-based pigments that give many fruits and vegetables their vibrant colors. They also provide potent antioxidant properties that can protect your body against oxidative stress and promote your overall health. While there are hundreds of different carotenoids, astaxanthin in particular stands out.

WHAT IS ASTAXANTHIN?**
One of the most powerful antioxidants found in nature, astaxanthin is a fat-soluble keto-carotenoid that belongs to the subclass of xanthophyll. It also belongs to the same family as other powerful, naturally occurring antioxidants such as lycopene, lutein and beta-carotene. For many people, astaxanthin is the go-to supplement for optimal health because it provides a multitude of health benefits, such as supporting the healthy functions of your brain, heart, eyes, skin, joints, tendons and immune system.
While astaxanthin can be found in a wide variety of organisms, one of the richest natural sources of astaxanthin is the unicellular microalga called Haematococcus pluvialis. With the help of astaxanthin, these remarkable microorganisms are able to survive for years under harsh sunlight. Due to their natural abundance of astaxanthin pigments, these microalgae appear to be bright red in color.
When other aquatic animals, such as shrimp, salmon and trout, consume large quantities of these microalgae, these marine creatures, in turn, acquire their distinctive reddish or pinkish hues, along with enhanced vitality.
EXPERIENCE THE UNMATCHED ANTIOXIDANT POWER OF
As one of Mother Nature’s most powerful antioxidants, astaxanthin is what helps give salmon their ability to achieve incredible feats of physical strength and endurance, such as leaping up waterfalls against the current. Humans can also experience similar benefits when they regularly incorporate astaxanthin into their daily routines.
Due to its unique molecular structure, astaxanthin can move throughout your entire body more efficiently than other antioxidants. Astaxanthin also does not become a pro-oxidant in the body. These factors make astaxanthin one of the most powerful and effective free-radical scavengers that can be absorbed by the human body, which easily sets it apart from other, less effective antioxidants.
Compared to other antioxidants, astaxanthin is:
- 6,000x stronger in 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
- 10x more powerful than other antioxidant carotenoids, such as zeaxanthin, lutein and beta-carotene
There is no doubt that astaxanthin is truly the “King of Carotenoids.”

HEALTH TIP FROM THE HEALTH RANGER:
Because astaxanthin is fat-soluble, you can maximize its distribution to your body's cells by taking it with flax oil, coconut oil, fish oils or Ahiflower, our vegan-friendly alternative to fish oils.
