What is Astaxanthin?
Astaxanthin is one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants, with a multitude of potent effects. Our bodies rely on antioxidants to relieve oxidative stress and help heal damaged cellular structures. Put simply, antioxidants fight the process of oxidation and free-radical induced oxidative stress, both of which lead to cellular breakdown over time. Skin, muscles, ligaments, tendons, eyes, internal organs, the cardiovascular system and nervous system are all receptive to astaxanthin, making it uniquely active among antioxidants.
The purest, natural source of astaxanthin is micro algae, primary producers of food for other organisms and animals, and a plant-based source of nutrients at the very bottom of the food chain. KeyNatura uses the freshwater micro algae Haematococcus Pluvialis, also rich in omega 3, to culture and harvest high-active astaxanthin. Unlike synthetic options made from petrochemicals, our astaxanthin is natural, sustainably produced and suitable for use even by those following a vegan diet.
