Many antioxidants, even some of the more potent ones, are unable to cross both your blood-brain and blood-retinal barriers to reach your brain, nervous system, and eyes.
Astaxanthin is different. It has the rare ability to cross these protective barriers to help protect your brain and eye tissue from free radicals and other substances.*
That’s not all that makes astaxanthin stand apart from other antioxidants. It not only can handle multiple free radicals at one time (as many as 19!), it acts on at least five different pathways to support your body’s healthy normal inflammatory response.* Plus, astaxanthin has up to 6,000 times the quenching power of other well-known antioxidants.
Because astaxanthin can reach just about every cell in your body, it offers astounding potential to support many functions, including cellular energy production, cognitive and psychomotor function, eye and skin health, immune function, and cardiovascular health as well.*
Dr. Mercola has combined organic astaxanthin with valuable ALA, or alpha-linolenic acid, which provides important cardiovascular support.*
Dr. Mercola Organic Astaxanthin with ALA (4 mg) stands apart from other astaxanthin formulas in three key ways:
• It uses only Organic Astaxanthin from microalgae, the preferred source Haematococcus pluvialis extract
• The astaxanthin is grown in pure, clean glass tubes, rather than open ponds, and is untouched by chemical solvents, preservatives, plasticizers and residues
• It contains 300 mg of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a plant omega-3 fatty acid from Perilla Seed Oil, in a base of Organic Olive Oil for enhanced absorption
