Astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant with a range of potential health benefits. But because of its low bioavailability, it’s hard to actually access those benefits. Some people are particularly poor absorbers of astaxanthin, and may be deriving little or no benefit from conventional astaxanthin supplements.

Astaxanthin-SR™ unlocks the tremendous potential of astaxanthin. It is made using MicroActive technology, which micronizes and encapsulates astaxanthin in a tailor-made matrix to increase its bioavailability. So you get more of what you take astaxanthin for. 

A pilot clinical trial comparing the bioavailability of MicroActive Astaxanthin to conventional oil-based astaxanthin found MicroActive Astaxanthin has the following benefits:

  • Superior bioavailability: 3.6x greater bioavailability than conventional astaxanthin, with higher blood levels observed at all time points tested.
  • Universal absorption: Universally absorbed by all subjects (not well-absorbed by some and poorly absorbed by others).
  • Sustained release: Released slowly rather than all at once. At 24 hours, astaxanthin blood level was 3x higher with MicroActive Astaxanthin than conventional astaxanthin.
