MicroActive® Astaxanthin

MicroActive® Astaxanthin

24-Hour Sustained Release and Improved Uniform Absorption     

About Astaxanthin

A bright-red antioxidant carotenoid, astaxanthin improves the condition of the skin, enhances recovery from exercise, relieves occasional indigestion, supports gastric health, helps maintain cholesterol levels already within a healthy range, enhances immune response, promotes healthy vision, and supports the male reproductive system.

However, astaxanthin is virtually insoluble in gastric and intestinal fluids, giving it poor bioavailability. Even in solubilized formulas, it quickly precipitates out once saturation is reached, making it hard for the body to absorb and utilize. MicroActive Astaxanthin was developed to address this issue through a micronized, sustained-release technology that allows for better absorption and retention.
