Solgar Vitamins Astaxanthin 5mg: Numerous research articles have established Astaxanthin as a super antioxidant with capabilities much greater than some common antioxidants such as alpha-tocopherol and beta-carotene. Research also shows that Astaxanthin can benefit the body by fighting inflammation, boosting immune function, helping to minimise ageing of skin and possibly lowering the risk of neuro-degenerative disorders.
Astaxanthin 5 mg contains Astaxanthin, a type of carotenoid, which is a natural pigment found in a variety of foods. Carotenes are specifically found in vegetables and fruits, with beta-carotene found in those which are dark orange or green. Astaxanthin gives a vibrant red-orange colour to lobster, salmon and some algae. As some diets often do not contain a range of fruits and vegetables, taking a supplement to reach adequate levels of carotenoids could be useful.
Our in-store pharmacist Shabir Daya, has written two articles about Astaxanthin:
