Astaxanthin from Dr. Mercola stands apart from other astaxanthin formulas in three key ways:
- Dr. Mercola uses only Organic Astaxanthin from microalgae, the preferred source Haematococcus pluvialis extract
- Dr. Mercola's astaxanthin is grown in pure, clean glass tubes, rather than contaminated open ponds like other products, and is untouched by chemical solvents, preservatives, plasticizers and residues
- Contains 12mg of astaxanthin per serving for those who want the higher level used in many studies without taking multiple capsules
Many antioxidants, even some of the more potent ones, are unable to cross both your blood-brain and blood-retinal barriers to reach your brain, nervous system, and eyes. Astaxanthin is different. It has the rare ability to cross these protective barriers to help protect your brain and eye tissue from free radicals and other substances that can cause oxidative damage, swelling, and faster cellular aging.
That's not all that makes astaxanthin stand apart from other antioxidants. It not only can handle multiple free radicals at one time (as many as 19!), it acts on at least five different pathways to support your body's healthy normal swelling response. Plus, astaxanthin has up to 6,000 times the quenching power of other well-known antioxidants.
Because astaxanthin can reach just about every cell in your body, it offers astounding potential for many functions, including cellular energy production, cognitive and psychomotor function, eye and skin health, immune function, and cardiovascular health as well.
