Astaxanthin Info

Astaxanthin is a carotenoid pigment (classed as a xanthophyll) found in algae and the fish that feed on them. Essential to the diet of salmon, crabs and crayfish, it is responsible for their pink colour. High levels are found in krill oil. Astaxanthin is an effective antioxidant that is both fat and water soluble and therefore active throughout the body, with the ability to cross the blood/brain barrier.

Astaxanthin Benefits

Astaxanthin is a superior antioxidant that improves free radical protection via recycling of other antioxidants (vitamin E, beta carotene, lycopene and glutathione) thereby prolonging their effect. Its antioxidant effect helps protect from sunburn and UV radiation, and directly supports eye, nervous system, skin, heart and prostate health. It helps reduce LDL cholesterol. Astaxanthin reduces recovery time after exercise by speeding up muscle healing, and improves strength and endurance in athletic performance. Its role in visual health extends to prevention of macular degeneration. Pain from arthritis, chronic backache, carpal tunnel syndrome and RSI can all be relieved. Immune function improves and nervous system diseases such as Alzheimer’s may be prevented.

Astaxanthin Side Effects

There have been no human studies on long term use of astaxanthin, so risks are unknown. Contraindicated for those with known allergies to astaxanthin, hormone-sensitive conditions or immune disorders. Use with caution if you have hypertension, asthma, parathyroid disorders, or osteoporosis. In rare cases astaxanthin may lower blood pressure, increase skin pigmentation and hair growth, affect hormone levels, lower blood calcium, alter blood count, decrease libido or enlarge breasts (in men). May interact with drug or herbal medications – consult your health practitioner for information.

  • Fantastic product !!!

    star

    This is a great product. My husband suffers from gout and joint pain, this is plant base, not shell fish. I take it also, notice a difference when we run out.
    So pleased that Health Post is stocking it again. Should have ordered two as they are out of stock again. Can't wait until its back in .
    Big thumbs up for the fast courier.

  • Keep coming back to it

    star

    I've tried a lot of these beauty supplements and I'll probably try others, but I always keep coming back to this brand. I'm realistic about expectations, so I suspect it will be take more than a box of this to truly see the results. So consistency is key as they say! I try to have a good skin care regime, supplemented with this and my complexion so far looks great. Plump too!

  • I cannot rate this product high enough! Amazing! This really does work!

    star

    I have never been able to grow my nails, they split and tear and are so weak the slightest thing chips or breaks them. I have just about finished my first lot of these and I have long nails that are hard and don't tear/break at all! I have had to go and buy a good nail file now to shape them! I noticed after the first 5 days that my nails were getting stronger and I know have people asking me what I am using and wanting to get it themselves. I have made sure I have taken the recommended dose of two tablets every night before bed to start and will then go down to the 1 tablet.
    I notice also my skin is looking a lot plumper and glowing. My hair I have not noticed yet but hopefully will in time.
    I will not stop taking these tablets and I seriously cant recommend these enough!
