Astaxanthin is a naturally occurring carotenoid that, because of its unique structure, provides a wide range of antioxidant benefits. Astaxanthin can help to protect cell membranes against free radical attack and potentiates the action of other antioxidants like vitamins E and C. Scientific studies have demonstrated that astaxanthin can help to support immune system response.

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Top anti-oxidant Information indicates that astaxanthin is a strong anti-oxidant. I haven't tried it, but I've read some people even add an opened cap or two to olive oil to prevent oxidation. February 5, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Antioxidant I've researched astaxanthin and taken 4mg with dinner for four years. Swanson prices and customer service are the best, and astaxanthin is a definite keeper. March 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by yeppers! Since this was so highly recommended from a variety of sources, I thought I would try it. Simply put, it works. I stopped taking it, noticed the difference, and now have returned to it. Do a little research online to discover the benefits it brings to determine if it's something needed. It helps.
