Astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant, shown
to be up to 500 times more potent than vitamin E, up to 10 times
more potent than beta carotene and up to 5 times more potent than
lutein. Because astaxanthin freely crosses the blood-brain and
blood-retina barriers, astaxanthin can readily neutralize
free-radicals and other reactive species in the eye and nervous
system. Protection of the eye and brain tissue from oxidative
stress could potentially provide valuable support for both eye and
brain health. It has also shown to have excellent benefits for the
cardiovascular system as well. This incredible antioxidant has also
been shown to increase stamina, making it easier for those who
exercise frequently to get through grueling workouts. One of the
most remarkable recent discoveries found that astaxanthin
significantly reduced the amount of DNA damage in humans. The
astaxanthin used in this product is all-natural and not synthetic,
manufactured from the microalgae Haematococcus pluvialis grown in
closed culture using ultra-pure water – this is unlike many other
varieties that are made synthetically instead of being harvested
naturally to retain the ingredient in its purest form. Each bottle
contains 30 vegan softgels. $12.99 per bottle.

awesome anti-oxidant! don't order during summer.
From jess of richmond, California on .
this is a great vegan anti-oxidant. i use it with vitamin c and Q-10 during winter. my partner and i rarely get sick now. however, if you order it during warm months, the olive oil starts to seep out of the vitamin. vegan essentials assured me it was still safe to take, but it stains your hands purple and you can't return it. buy in the fall/winter and it is awesome.
