What is Astaxanthin?
Astaxanthin is a natural carotenoid that is naturally found in the form of microalgae Haematococcus pluvialis. Astaxanthin is what makes salmon, shrimp and lobsters red and pink. In the natural environment, animals depend on their diet to obtain astaxanthin and other carotenoids that cannot be produced in the organism.
The most abundant astaxanthin source in nature is Haematococcus pluvialis, which keeps astaxanthin in its lipid vesicles during nutrient deficiency periods and environmental stress. Because Haematococcus often grows in places under an intense sunlight exposure during their inactive phase, astaxanthin functions to protect cell nucleus from free radical effects generated by the UV radiation is very powerful.
Natural astaxanthin has a unique molecular structure that makes it, literally, hundreds of times stronger than any other antioxidant molecule, much more than even vitamin C. Hence it provides several benefits.
Astaxanthin of HSN Essentials is a supplement that provides a dose of AstaReal® astaxanthin. AstaReal AB was the first company to commercialize natural astaxanthin from microalgae as a nutritional supplement.
