Astaxanthin from NOW Foods is an antioxidant that supports healthy blood flow, vessel integrity, improves immune response, supports memory and other brain functions. Known as the king of carotenoids is one of the most potent natural antioxidants known to provide a wide range of health benefits. Natural astaxanthin is over 500 times stronger than Vitamin E and much stronger than other carotenoids. Astaxanthin due to its unique structure is probably the most powerful scavenger of free radicals.
Since astaxanthin freely crosses the blood-brain and blood-retinal barriers, it can neutralize free radicals in the eye and central nervous system.
Scientific studies also show that astaxanthin can support the health and efficiency of the immune system.
Astaxanthin also improves vision, relieves eye fatigue and has beneficial effects on cell membranes that manage important vital functions.
The body cannot make astaxanthin, it must be taken through diet or supplementation.
Astaxanthin is derived from algae and moves up the food chain when algae are consumed as food. In fact, it gives the red color to seafood such as salmon, trout, crab, This NOW Foods product contains Zanthin®, a patented and very high quality form of Astaxanthin.

How does it work?
The molecular structure of Astaxanthin is long and thin, at both ends with "polar" groups compatible with water, while the central segment is "non-polar" and incompatible with water. This molecular structure allows astaxanthin to move in cell membranes without substantially affecting the membrane structure, providing powerful protection against cell damage, such as damage caused by free radicals. All cells have membranes, and maintaining the health of these membranes is critical for the cell to function properly. Each cell membrane is an ultra-thin sheet of lipids into which enzymes and other catalytic proteins are embedded. The intense metabolic activities within the cell membranes generate highly reactive substances known as "free radicals". The damage caused by these radicals can be mitigated by the antioxidant activity. Astaxanthin provides cell membranes with a powerful antioxidant defense against these free radicals.
