Product Details

Astaxanthin (pronounced asta-ZAN-thin) is a naturally occurring carotenoid found in some fish and algae. Like several of the other carotenoids, astaxanthin has antioxidant properties and helps support healthy skin and eye function. Astaxanthin provides the rich pink color in wild salmon and crustaceans like crab, lobster and shrimp – they consume it through their diet.
