Meet Mother Nature’s Most Powerful Anti-Aging Force

Much more potent than vitamin C and vitamin E—to name just a few—my Clinical Grade Astaxanthin is one of the most powerful and multifunctional antioxidant supplements you can buy. Each 6 mg softgel provides the clinically studied dose to support the health of your eyes and skin as well as immune, cardiovascular, and blood lipid health. And if you double the dose to 12 mg, studies show that Astaxanthin can provide additional macular health benefits.

In one single pill per day, Astaxanthin provides… Superior antioxidant support Protection from the damaging effects of free radicals Healthy vision support to help maintain visual sharpness Access to cells though blood-brain and blood-retina barriers

The beauty of Astaxanthin—which is both fat soluble and water soluble—lies in its ability to keep free radicals in check in areas inaccessible to other antioxidants, due to its ability to cross both the blood-brain and blood-retinal barriers. This allows it to penetrate the outer cell membrane and the interior cell fluid to scavenge and quench different types of free radicals in your cells.

What exactly is Astaxanthin?

Think about shrimp: when it’s cooked, it turns red. That red color is astaxanthin—a carotenoid xanthophyll that also gives salmon, crab, krill, and lobster their pink hues. Astaxanthin not only contributes to their color, but also protects these species from oxidative damage. Over the past 20 years, much research has demonstrated the dynamic antioxidant properties and significant health benefits of this ultra-potent carotenoid, which is heralded by researchers, nutritionists, and doctors alike.

AstaREAL® is the most studied natural astaxanthin

AstaREAL Astaxanthin is the subject of over 40 studies and AstaREAL was the first in the world to commercially produce natural astaxanthin from Haematococcus pluvialis, a species of green algae. AstaREAL products are backed by the highest expertise and longest experience in the field of microalgae research and production, and the company has sponsored a large number of their own efficacy studies. Look to my Astaxanthin for…


In a randomized double-blind study involving healthy individuals with eye strain, 6 mg daily of Astaxanthin was shown to promote healthy vision and support eye health.1

Double the dose for superior macula support!

Because of the convincing research with 12 mg of Astaxanthin, I recommend doubling the dosage to preserve the health of your macula. Here’s what the research found: In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, results showed that 12 mg a day of Astaxanthin supports macular health as measured by blood flow velocity.2 6 mg/day of Astaxanthin improves eye health after 4 weeks! Better SKIN HEALTH

In a randomized double-blind, placebo-controlled study, subjects taking 6 mg of Astaxanthin per day had improvements in multiple parameters of skin health, including crow’s feet, wrinkles, age spots, and skin elasticity.3 Better skin health and reduced crow’s feet after 8 weeks! Improved LIPID HEALTH

In a randomized double-blind, placebo-controlled study involving participants who took 6 mg a day of Astaxanthin, lipid profiles improved with an increase in HDL-cholesterol and an improvement in triglyceride levels compared to placebo.4


Reductions in levels of C-reactive protein (CRP) —a marker of inflammation—indicate a healthy immune system. Astaxanthin can cross into the cellular membrane and the cellular fluid to attack free radicals to promote healthy immune function.

In a randomized double-blind, placebo-controlled study, participants who took 4 mg a day of Astaxanthin—my formula has 6 mg—had significantly greater reductions in C-reactive protein, compared to a placebo.5 4 mg/day of Astaxanthin significantly reduces CRP after 8 weeks! And in another randomized double-blind, placebo-controlled study individuals taking 2 mg a day of Astaxanthin—my formula has 3 times that amount—not only had significantly reduced CRP levels compared to the placebo, but also increases in T- and B- cells. This had a measurable benefit for immune health.6


Astaxanthin has been shown to enhance physical activity and endurance and the research behind this is remarkable. In a randomized double-blind, placebo-controlled study individuals taking 4 mg a day of Astaxanthin—my formula has 6 mg—had improved fitness, strength, and endurance during exercise. The average number of knee bends (squats) in the Astaxanthin group was three times higher than that of the placebo group!7 4 mg/day of Astaxanthin improves fitness & strength endurance after 24 weeks! For years I have praised the benefits of Astaxanthin, and I’ve long been recommending it to my patients as well. It has been shown to help prevent lipid oxidation, maintain healthy triglyceride levels, and even improve famously hard-to-budge beneficial HDL cholesterol. Furthermore, because it can cross both the blood-brain barrier and the blood-retinal barrier, Astaxanthin is uniquely equipped to help protect the overall health of the eyes.

Now that the rest of the world has sat up and taken notice, I couldn’t be more pleased that Astaxanthin is getting the attention it deserves. Finally, it should be noted that Astaxanthin is naturally present in wild salmon, rainbow trout, and shellfish, and can also be found in very small amounts in red-colored fruits and vegetables. But to reap its full benefits, my Clinical Grade Astaxanthin is definitely the way to go.
