    Astaxanthin-Nature’s Most Powerful Antioxidant

    The first studies of the health benefits of natural astaxanthin were done on astaxanthin produced from krill oil. Cyanotech became aware of those studies as some of their customers started requesting supplement-grade astaxanthin for human consumption.
    The combination of its high-potency antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties allows it to address a vast array of health concerns.
    • Astaxanthin is believed to be the most potent antioxidant nature has to offer. In terms of antioxidant power or potency, astaxanthin is 550 times stronger than vitamin E, and 6,000 times stronger than vitamin C
    • While it is related to other carotenoids like beta-carotene, lutein, and canthaxanthin, it has a unique structure, and works in some very unique ways. It acts on at least five different inflammation pathways, and can handle far more free radicals at any given time
    • The combination of its high-potency antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties allows it to address a vast array of health concerns, including joint problems such as rheumatoid arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome and tennis elbow; protection from UV radiation; improved athletic performance; heart health; brain health, including protection against age-related dementia; and protection against age-related macular degeneration—the most common cause of blindness in the US
    • Hercules Krill Oil is a super antioxidant* composed of pure oil delivered from Antarctic krill. Krill are plentiful, tiny, bright, pink, shrimp-like crustaceans. The three (3) key substances in krill oil the human body needs to function properly include: omega-3 essential fatty acids (EPA and DHA), phospholipids (an important component of all cell membranes) and anti-oxidants, including astaxanthin (a potent carotenoid that gives krill its red-orange color).

    What makes this substance unique is that some people feel that it's the most beneficial antioxidant.

    Most antioxidants are not useful after they have transferred their free electrons to free radicals. Astaxanthin has a huge supply of these electrons allowing it to be used for longer periods of time.

    Here is a video on exactly how it can be beneficial to someone.
