SKU: DRB-00366 Category:


Astaxanthin, expressed as Asta-Zan-Tin, is a powerful antioxidant belonging to a group of natural pigments called xanthophylls, a subcategory of the carotenoid family. Carotenoids are produced by both plants and animals and are antioxidants that are part of survival mechanisms.

  • Cardiovascular Protection: Numerous studies show that astaxanthin helps protect the heart, and its mode of action appears to reduce C-reactive protein. This protein is a marker of inflammation in the body, and lower levels are associated with a reduced risk of heart disease and other diseases. In addition, astaxanthin appears to integrate with the mitochondrial membranes of heart muscle cells, helping to protect them.
  • Protecting the Nervous System: Several studies point to the ability of astaxanthin to protect nerve cells and therefore slow cognitive decline and other nerve-related diseases. This makes astaxanthin very useful in preventing loss of brain function.
  • Eye health: We know that eating foods rich in carotenoids can be beneficial in protecting your eyesight. The most notable eye carotenoids are lutein and zeaxanthin, which are often recommended to prevent age-related macular degeneration. However, astaxanthin is in a different league when comparing its antioxidant properties to other carotenoids. Research shows that astaxanthin prevents damage to most eye tissues and structures and may be helpful in preventing age-related eye problems such as retinopathy, glaucoma, and neuropathy.
  • Skin Health: Astaxanthin has demonstrated skin health benefits by helping to protect skin from UV radiation, improving elasticity, firmness and reducing wrinkles. Astaxanthin has been shown to prevent UV damage to cells. Even more interesting is that it does not block UVB rays, which are rays that aid in the production of vitamin D from the sun.
  • Astaxanthin has been found valuable in preventing many other problems, including supporting the immune system, protecting gum health, and improving reproductive health.
