Great for: supporting antioxidant levels and protecting against free radicals
Pure & Essential AstaPure® Astaxanthin Complex is a natural extract from the microalgae Haematococcus pluvialis (H. Pluvialis) – the same algae responsible for the pink-red pigmentation of wild salmon and crustaceans. AstaPure® contains the highest available concentration of astaxanthin, as well as a complex of other beneficial carotenoids including lutein, canthaxanthin, zeaxanthin and beta-carotene, as well as amino acids and fatty acids, which together offer a broad range of health benefits, enhance its bioavailability and increase cell membrane stability.
Of all the carotenoids, astaxanthin is nature’s most potent, with the highest known ORAC value (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) – a measure of its ability to combat oxidative stress. Astaxanthin’s ability to quench free radicals is 6,000 times greater than vitamin C, 800 times that of coenzyme Q10 and 550 times that of vitamin E.
Astaxanthin can anchor itself in all cell membranes, meaning it has the potential to deliver broad-reaching health benefits throughout the body. Studies to date show that astaxanthin’s ability to reduce and terminate oxidative stress, protect against unwanted inflammation and protect cell structure and function, provide health-enhancing properties for the skin, cell cycle, immune health, cardiovascular health, brain function, joints and muscles, energy, gut and liver health.
Each bottle contains 90 capsules, suggested dose 1 daily for general health, and up to 4 for intensive support.
Directions: For adults and children aged 12+: take 1-2 capsules daily. For intensive support, the dose can be increased to 4 capsules daily. For optimal absorption, astaxanthin should be taken with fats, during or immediately after meals. Do not exceed the above doses.
Ingredients: Cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oil; AstaPure® from Haematococcus pluvialis (H. pluvialis) microalgae (10% astaxanthin); capsule shell (emulsifier: glycerol; modified corn starch, carrageenan, Orange Ovation A, sodium carbonate).

If, for any reason, you are unable to import our food supplements due to local market regulations, any fees charged to us for returning the goods will be deducted from your refund once the goods are received back at our warehouse. Any applicable customs charges are payable by you and Igennus accepts no responsibility for any charges imposed on you upon import.
