Organic Astaxanthin - 60 capsules
Organic Astaxanthin from PrimeSelf is a vibrantly coloured carotenoid derived from microalgae. Astazine® is the world's first organic astaxanthin, a keto-carotenoid. It is fat-soluble and is believed to support antioxidant activity, reduce inflammation, strengthen the immune system, and promote healthy eyes.
AstaZine® is produced through the cultivation of the microalgae Haematococcus Pluvialis in high technology 100% glass-tube photobioreactors. AstaZine® is cultivated using clean water which still undergoes reverse osmosis before being used to grow our microalgae cultures to ensure maximum purity and safety.
- Supports Longevity & Anti-Aging
- Anti-Oxidant & Inflammation Support
- Supports Eye & Skin Health
FACT: Astaxanthin is reported to have over 500 times more antioxidant activity than vitamin E, to be up to 10 times stronger than beta-carotene, and to be more powerful than alpha carotene and lycopene. BOOM!
How does it help?
Villainous UV exposure
UV light increases production of evil free radicals, increasing oxidative damage to lipids, eyes and skin. Astaxanthin may prevent damage caused by UV exposure.
Astaxanthin has well-documented anti-inflammatory effects. In conditions related to inflammation, Astaxanthin throws punches and softens the blows – scooping up damaging reactive oxygen species that are released by inflammation.
The immune system is sensitive, prone to oxidative stress and free radical damage. Astaxanthin swoops in to help strengthen it – promoting a healthier immune system.
Lutein, zeaxanthin and Astaxanthin – act as the eye's personal guards, protecting against light-induced damage. For starters, Astaxanthin can cross the blood brain barrier and take up positions in the retina. This is thought to promote eye health maintenance, and studies show that Astaxanthin may actually improve visual sharpness and relieve eye strain.
Tricky reactive oxygen species are believed to be behind some of the ageing process. Astaxanthin has been known to help cells survive the fight against oxidative stress, protect them against a decline in membrane function and guard mitochondria. Carotenoids, with antioxidant properties, are known for their ability to fight ageing.
