Find out why astaxanthin is our latest health and beauty obsession.
Antioxidants help to combat the harmful effects of free-radical damage, keeping you healthy and beautiful for longer. Now, it’s time to add one more antioxidant into your regime: astaxanthin.
This is a carotenoid pigment that gives certain seafood like salmon, crabs, prawns and lobsters their naturally red colour. It also protects these creatures from harsh environmental conditions. Here’s why you need to make astaxanthin a part of your life.
Not many other nutrients can rival the power of astaxanthin – it’s 6,000 times stronger than Vitamin C, 800 times stronger than coenzyme Q10, and 110 times stronger than Vitamin E! Astaxanthin is nature’s most potent and natural form of antioxidant for human use. Astavita contains extracts of high quality natural astaxanthin from Swedish algae (Haematococcus pluvialis).

Live to your full potential with Astavita Living Antioxidants ($61), a supplement that was developed in Japan and made in USA. Taking just one pill daily will strengthen your immunity and cardiovascular health, improve muscle recovery, combat chronic fatigue and alleviate tired eyes. Best taken after any meal with the highest fat content.
3 GLOW FROM WITHIN
Research has shown that astaxanthin is able to enhance skin fibroblast’s resilience against free-radical damage, reducing the effects of UV-induced photo-ageing and wrinkling. It’s also been proven to help in the reduction of the appearance of scars. Get your dose from the Astarism Facial Serum ($54). Developed and made in Japan, the paraben-free formula is made to penetrate deep into the skin to boost its firmness and elasticity. Expect to see results in 60 days.
