What is Astaxanthin?
Astaxanthin is a carotenoid that gives the reddish pigment to some algae, salmon, crab, krill and lobster. Isotonix® Astaxanthin uses a fully sustainable source of red pigmented algae. Because it is from algae it allows the Isotonix® Astaxanthin to be suitable for a vegetarian or vegan diet. Astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant and it does not become a pro-oxidant. This means, even under tremendous oxidative stress, astaxanthin does not create free radicals from itself or its metabolism. Other carotenoids like vitamin A, lycopene and zeaxanthin, on the other hand, may become free radicals when taken in supraphysiologic amounts. *

Why did we choose to combine 3 powerful antioxidants in the Isotonix® Astaxanthin formula?
We paired these 3 antioxidants specifically because they work in synergy, protecting both sides of the cell membrane—TWO being fat soluble and the other being water soluble. Additionally, these three ingredients enhance the power of their partners. Individually, each ingredient has its own strength, yet together the three can quench a varied number of free radical types while effectively recycling one another for maximum protection. *
What is the significance of Isotonix® Astaxanthin being cold water-soluble?
Unlike many competitors, Isotonix® Astaxanthin is cold water-soluble and in a powdered form. Not only is cold water-soluble astaxanthin a temperature-controlled extraction, the cold-water soluble powder offers a higher concentration of astaxanthin by weight while also dispersing well water without clumping or sticking, making it ideal for on the go activities or travel. In addition, the cold water-soluble AstaReal® Astaxanthin is a free-flowing powder, allowing for enhanced delivery in a pure vegetable formula.
