Twinlab - Astaxanthin - 60 Softgels
Although similar to the better-known antioxident Beta-Carotene,slight differences in the structure of Astaxanthin cause radical differences in activity.Astasanthin is ten times stronger than Beta-Carotene and up to 500 times stronger than vitamin E as an antioxident.Unique aspects of the Astaxanthin structure allow it to pass the blood brain barrier,meaning it can deliver antioxident benefits directly to the brain and central nervouse sysytem. Astaxanthin is the pink carotenoid that gives salmon, crabs, shrimp, and flamingos their color because these animals eat microorganisms that contain large quantities of it. Like other carotenoids, astaxanthin has proven to be a remarkably effective fatsoluble antioxidant. This may be important in protecting cell membranes, that have a high fat content, against free radicals.
