Astaxanthin is known as "The king of carotenoids", a natural wonder and one of nature’s most potent antioxidants, known to provide a wide variety of health benefits. Astaxanthin is derived from a microalgae called Haematococcus pluvialis. Microalgae create astaxanthin to protect themselves from stressful environmental conditions. During the summer, when ponds begin to dry, astaxanthin enables microalgae to preserve their DNA undamaged, ready to grow again when the next rain comes, even if that takes many years. This remarkable ability demonstrates astaxanthin’s function as a superb antioxidant. Studies have shown natural astaxanthin derived from microalgae to be over 500 times stronger than vitamin E and much more potent than other carotenoids. It is known that astaxanthin, which is a rich, dark red pigment, not only gives shrimp, krill and salmon their distinctive colours but also helps salmon with the endurance they need to swim upstream for up to 2,000 miles, in addition to powering birds’ incredible eye sight. Using Astaxanthin both orally and topically will give consumers the powerful punch needed to help fight aging skin health concerns, premature skin aging and beautify skin appearance. Choose between a 2ml bottle for £15 or a 10ml bottle for £60 (Saving £15 as the original price is £75). Disclaimer: Be extremely cautious while using Astaxanthin due to its powerful ability to stain clothing and objects.
