Astaxanthin Complex 5mg
Solgar is proud to introduce Astaxanthin 4 mg Softgels. Astaxanthin is a pinkish-red carotenoid that is responsible for the pink colouration of salmon and flamingos. Unlike many of the better known carotenoids such as beta-carotene, lutein and lycopene, which come from plant sources, astaxanthin comes from marine sources - primarily from micro-algae.
It is a xanthophylls carotenoid, meaning that it does not convert to Vitamin A, but has antioxidant properties in its own right. Astaxanthin is both fat and water soluble and as such has widespread antioxidant potential in the body. It has also been shown to recycle other antioxidants including vitamins c, e, lutein, beta-carotene and glutathione, further enhancing its overall antioxidant effect. Solgar's astaxanthin is derived from the algae Haematococcus pluvialis which is grown off the coast of Hawaii.
