Introducing Astaxanthin – nature’s most potent antioxidant, with Dr Nina Bailey


Date:
Time: 12:00 pm

Astaxanthin, the naturally occurring carotenoid responsible for the pink-red pigmentation of wild salmon and crustaceans such as shrimp and lobsters, is a potent and effective antioxidant that boasts an ability to combat oxidative stress 6000x greater than that of vitamin C, 800x coenzyme Q10, 550x vitamin E and 75x alpha lipoic acid. Naturally, we are very excited to introduce AstaPure astaxanthin to our Pure Essentials range, launching in March!

Most commonly associated with preventing age-related diseases, astaxanthin’s unique chemical structure that spans the cell membrane gives rise to an exciting and diverse array of health benefits. New research is coming out daily suggesting astaxanthin is a highly effective tool in combating age-related diseases and cardiovascular disease, as well as boosting the immune system, liver and brain function.

In this 1 hour webinar, Dr Nina Bailey discusses:

    • Astaxanthin’s most exciting mechanisms of action
    • How its unique structure makes it so potent
    • An overview of some of the most compelling research into astaxanthin’s health benefits
    • When to use astaxanthin in clinical practice & dosing guidelines
