Astaxanthin, a member of the carotenoid family, is an oxygenated redorange pigment. Professor Basil Weedon was the first to map the structure of
astaxanthin. Astaxanthin is found in microalgae,yeast,salmon,trout, shrimp,crustaceans,and other sources. However, Haematococcus pluvialis appears to be the best source of astaxanthin. Astaxanthin cannot be synthesized by human and it must be provided in the diet. Astaxanthin has been proven to be one of the most powerful antioxidants yet discovered. University study shows Astaxanthin to be up to 550 effective than Vitamin E and 4 times
than lutein in various antioxidant capacities.It freely crosses the blood-brain and blood-retina barriers to provide powerful support for eye and nervous

Medical Use:Astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant that it is 10 times more capable than other carotenoids, so it is beneficial in cardiovascular, immune, inflammatory and neurodegenerative diseases. It also crosses the bloodbrain barrier, which makes it available to the eye, brain and central nervous system to alleviate oxidative stress that contributes to ocular, and neurodegenerative diseases such as glaucoma and Alzheimer's.
Cosmetic Use:For its highperformance antioxygenic property, it can protect the skin from ultraviolet radiation damage and effectively reduce melanin deposition and the formation of freckles to keep skin healthy. At the same time, as an ideal natural coloring agent for the lipstick can enhance the radiant, and to prevent the ultraviolet injury, without any stimulation, safe.
