Astaxanthin (Inci - Haematococcus Pluvialis Extract )
Astaxanthin is the most powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory known to science until this moment. Its power comes from its unique structure that allows it to quench free radicals in the inner and outer layer of the cell membrane unlike other antioxidants. It is a naturally occurring carotenoid found in microalgae. The green microalga Haematococcus pluvialis is considered the richest source of astaxanthin.
Natural astaxanthin has a unique molecular structure that makes it literally hundreds of times stronger than any other antioxidant molecule. For this reason, astaxanthin is often called "The King of Antioxidants”.
