First of all, what is astaxanthin?
Astaxanthin is a powerful naturally occurring antioxidant. It is a carotenoid pigment found in some marine plants and certain animals. Astaxanthin has many wide ranging health benefits, shown to be a very effective remedy for joint and muscle pain, arthritis and helps to protect skin from UV damage from sunlight.
What are the health benefits of astaxanthin?
It is recognised by athletes as a ‘super antioxidant’
It is frequently used by athletes to support the body's natural recovery from exercise.
2 It has powerful antioxidant characteristics which support eye health.
Astaxanthin has a similar structure to the antioxidants zeaxanthin and lutein which are recognised to reduce nuclear cataract risks. Clinical trials supporting eye health with Astaxanthin have been proven to show that this anti-oxidant has that unique ability to cross through the barriers and reach your retina.
3. It is a dynamic antioxidant!
The health benefits of antioxidants are many. Antioxidants play a vital role in the prevention of harmful molecules, these are frequently referred to as Free Radicals - believed to be the origin of serious medical conditions including dementia, heart disease, inflammation and even cancers. Often taking their toll on the body by the deterioration of vision and early onset of ageing. Astaxanthin is 550 times stronger than green tea catechins, 75 times stronger than alpha lipoic acid, 6000 times stronger than Vitamin C and 800 times stronger than CoQ10.
4. It can benefit your skin condition
Consistent research has proven excellent results for Astaxanthin in encouraging skin smoothness, elasticity, and moisture levels. Astaxanthin is now regarded as one of the most powerful anti-oxidants found in nature and, contrary to other sources, never becomes pro-oxidant whilst in the body.

I'm a long distance runner and I use Zestlifes Astaxanthin for my knees. Since taking the product I've run 2 marathons and my knee pain has gone almost completely. Thank you Zestlife!Sammy
I bought this because it came highly recommended. First off I''m 49 year old female After taking it for 6 weeks, I noticed my face skin tightened up,my knee joints don''t hurt any more at all. So Im very Impressed with this stuff.Kim
As a Arthritis and frozen shoulder sufferer I thought I would give these a try. So much pain.. taken them for 9 weeks now and I am realy feeling the benefit now. they take weeks to work but I persevered So glade I did. Fantastic service would highly recommend.jack
Good quality product that works noticeably well at tackling inflammation compared to some other brands I have tried. Happy to recommend from personal experience.John
Heard about these a year ago ,great for eyesight and skin ,as soon as i was on them for a month everyone said how young i lookedTrem
The product arrived when promised and would provide abouttwo months supply at the suggested dose. It is claimedto be a source of Lutein that is sometimes suggested to help inreducing the progress of some form of age related sight deterioration.It also is claimed to partly protect the skin from sun damage.There are many other physical conditions that may be improved.lance
I have been taking these for a few weeks now. There are many claimed health benefits associated with this product, so I was curious to give it a try. Firstly, this brand seems to be a quality product. I tested it by breaking a capsule open and pouring the contents into a glass of water. It dispersed freely and spread evenly across the surface of the water. Inferior brands just clump and sink to the bottom of the glass in a lump. It helps with post workout soreness for sure and inflammation. Increases aerobic capacity when running and certainly seems to help dry skin. This is my honest experience so far.Brian
My doctor recommended Astaxanthin to me. It appears to be helping with joint and muscle probs.Anita
Efficient, professional and reliable service. I buy Astaxanthin and they are very good value, I haven't seen them cheaper anywhere else. I have been taking them for a while now and have had many benefits from them. Improved skin, hair growth, nail growth, less aches & pains & more energy. Wouldn't be without them.Jacqueline Nash
