Nature's most powerful antioxidant.
Astaxanthin (pronounced asta-zan-thin) is a front runner in the world of antioxidants - 550 times the antioxidant strength of Vitamin E and 6000 times that of Vitamin C! While astaxanthin has been available for years, recent research has highlighted the properties of this remarkable, naturally-occurring carotenoid and brought it out into the mainstream. Astaxanthin has been shown to promote skin health, support endurance, offer immune support, encourage eye health and calm inflammation.
Astaxanthin is quite common in nature, especially in the marine environment. It is the substance that gives species such as salmon, shrimp, krill, lobster and flamingos their unique and rich, pinkish-red hue. These fish and animals obtain astaxanthin in their diet from zooplankton, insects or crustaceans that have accumulated astaxanthin from phytoplankton.
Although natural sources of astaxanthin are numerous, nearly all are found in very low concentrations. There is one exception. By far, the green algae Haematococcus pluvialis provides the most concentrated natural source of astaxanthin known, along with other important carotenoids such as beta-carotene, lutein and canthaxanthin.
Radiant Life's Astaxanthin 12mg supplement is unique in that it is naturally and sustainably sourced from the Haematococcus pluvialis micro algae. It is highly concentrated in antioxidants and offers a full 12mg of astaxanthin in just one capsule! Radiant Life's Astaxanthin supplement capsules are free from GMOs, pesticides, herbicides and allergens, and are tested carefully for purity.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Are there any additives to Radiant Life Astaxanthin?
A. Our Astaxanthin contains natural vitamin E (tocopherols) as a preservative. It comes in a suspension of olive oil, which is unique from other brands that contain vegetable oils like safflower and soy. The vegetarian-friendly soft gel caps are made from plant cellulose and candelilla wax.
Q. When should I take Astaxanthin?
A. As a whole food nutritional supplement, Astaxanthin can be taken any time of day. It is recommended that it is taken with food, preferably a meal that has fat in it. Fat helps to optimize the absorption of the antioxidants in the body.
Q. I thought a person was suppose to only need 4 mg of Astaxanthin a day. Are you sure 12 is safe or necessary?
A. 4 mg per day is a minimum in aiding cosmetic issues such as dry skin, age spots, etc. However, if one is highly active where muscle fatigue and joint discomfort are issues and/or endurance is important, 12 mg per day is both safe and recommended.
I've been taking this for 4 weeks. First time headed to the beach and I didn't get fried! Much more tan than ever before.
