Natural astaxanthin is an amazing substance which can help you in more ways than you perhaps have thought of. Astaxanthin is a unique carotenoid known for its many health benefits. It is the pigment that colors the flesh of salmon and trout pink, as well as the feathers of flamingoes, fish roe, star fish, sea urchins, and shells of some crustaceans.

The main human food sources of astaxanthin are salmon and trout. These fish acquire astaxanthin from their diet — natural prey or commercial fish feed.

In supplements, the most common source is the green algae Haematococcus pluvialis, which may contain up to 4% astaxanthin by dry weight. In fact, H. pluvialis is one of its richest natural sources. It is this key resource that KeyNatura uses to grow and then extract its Icelandic natural astaxanthin.

Astaxanthin accumulates in most body tissues and provides powerful antioxidant effects.
