Summarized Description: Astaxanthin is an ingredient we use in a number of our formulas at Alpha Omega Labs. It is a naturally occurring compound and pigment, one of the members of "Xanthophylls," that occurs throughout nature in small quantities. Astaxanthin belongs to a segment of Xanthophylls known as carotenoids, of which there are 600. The largest quantities of astaxanthin are found in marine life: salmon, trout, krill, microalgae, yeast, crustaceans, etc. 1.

Studies show that the maximum benefits of astaxanthin are experienced with dosages as little as 12 mg. daily.

None when taken as directed. If you have any questions, please write to us at: support@herbhealers.com.

  2. Evaluation of Antioxidant, Hypolipidemic, and Antiatherogenic Property of Lycopene and Astaxanthin in Atherosclerosis-induced Rats -- Conclusion: "In this study, lycopene and astaxanthin showed antioxidant, antihyperlipidemic, and antiatherosclerotic property. This warrants further study for including them in the treatment of atherosclerosis."
