BioAstin Natural Astaxanthin is the world’s best selling brand of astaxanthin for humans. It is a dietary supplement with powerful antioxidant and other health benefits.
Cyanotech produces BioAstin from microalgae. It was the first source of astaxanthin for human nutrition reviewed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In August 1999, BioAstin completed a review by the FDA without objection and was allowed to be sold in the United States as a dietary supplement.
BioAstin’s benefits derive from its superior antioxidant activity and from its ability to fight free radical damage and combat ongoing oxidative stress, supporting skin, muscle and joint health.
Natural Astaxanthin can have up to 550 times the antioxidant activity of vitamin E and 10 times the antioxidant activity of beta-carotene, and surpasses many of the antioxidant benefits of Vitamin C and other carotenoids.
