Now Foods Astaxanthin naturally supports eye health by supporting visual acuity and normal night vision. By naturally nourishing the eyes, this eye support supplement offers protection against dryness and irritations from the environment. It also strengthens the eye’s natural response against inflammation and helps in ensuring adequate blood flow within the many parts of the eyes. The free radical scavenger activity of Astaxanthin supports normal vision even when people grow older, as free radicals are a major cause of vision problems in older people. Astaxanthin is also a protective nutrient for the skin, especially when under the harmful UV radiation from the sun. Overexposure to sunlight causes sunburn, which is an inflammatory condition of the skin. Astaxanthin supplements also help the skin maintain its natural moisture to keep it healthy and younger looking. Other Astaxanthin benefits include strengthening the body’s immune response, supporting normal blood pressure levels, ensuring healthy blood circulation, and maintaining healthy reproductive functions in men and women.

Astaxanthin is a member of the xanthophylls, a family of carotenoids. Astaxanthin is naturally produced by the microscopic marine plant Haematococcus pluvuialis. These micro algae serve as food to marine animals like fishes, crabs, lobsters, and shrimps. It is the one responsible for the reddish coloration of these sea creatures often eaten by humans. The positive health effects of astaxanthin are due to its molecular configuration. It is structured to cross both the blood-brain and blood-retina barriers causing direct beneficial and protective effects to the brain and the retina. Its primary action as a powerful antioxidant or a free-radical scavenger is more potent than Vitamin E and other beta-carotenes. It offers protection against damaging results of oxidative processes that may cause damage to the eyes, brain, skin, and the cardiovascular system. Free radicals accumulation leads to formation of cholesterol plaques in the arteries which can obstruct the normal blood flow. These free radicals also damages skin cells causing the skin to look dull and dry. Astaxanthin supports healthy immune system by ensuring adequate production of cells involved in eliciting natural immune response. On brain health, astaxanthin helps by making sure that there is healthy blood flow within the blood vessels in the brain. A single softgel of Now Foods Astaxanthin delivers all these because of its Zanthin component, the most effective supplemental astaxanthin in the market.
