Sourced from pure Hawaiian microalgae, astaxanthin is the antioxidant being recommended for its clinically validated benefits for eye health. Research confirms that the potent antioxidant astaxanthin may reduce oxidative stress, reduce lipid peroxidation, reduce the risk of chronic diseases including cancer and cardiovascular disease, modulate the immune system, lower inflammatory markers including C-reactive protein (CRP), reduce the risk of neurodegenerative diseases, block oxidative DNA damage, lower triglyceride levels and increase HDL cholesterol.
