Astaxanthin is a deep red-colored phytonutrient synthesized by microalgae called Haematococcus. It is grown in fresh water using sophisticated techniques that encourage the algae to grow its own powerful medicines that protect it from oxidation, UV radiation and other environmental stresses. When harvested from the algae and concentrated into a liquid, astaxanthin becomes the most powerful antioxidant known in the natural world, demonstrating 550 times the antioxidant power of Vitamin E.

"King Of Carotenoids"

Astaxanthin is known as the "King of the Carotenoids". Carotenoids are the pigments that give many of the foods their beautiful colors. There are more than 700 different carotenoids. We can only obtain Carotenoids through our diet. Carotenoids are powerful nutrients that can help us live better and longer. Carotenoids are divided into 2 groups, Carotenes & Xanthophylls. Astaxanthin is a memeber of the Xanthophylls. It is unique from other members of the Xanthophylls because it has more hydroxyl groups, which allows it to do more in the body. Scientific literature also demonstrates that natural Astaxanthin surpasses many of the antioxidant benefits of vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene and other carotenoids. Studies of humans and animals have shown a variety of benefits from natural Astaxanthin:

  • Protects the skin from the damaging effects of ultraviolet radiation
  • Natural sunscreen when taken internally
  • Strong immune system stimulator
  • Increases energy and metabolism
  • Supports & protects eye health
  • Supports anti-aging through cellular health
  • Claimed to be the "World's Strongest Antioxidant"
  • Supports cardiocascular health
  • Protects the brain from Dementia and Alzheimer's by it's ability to cross the blood-brain barrier
  • Reduces inflammation and joint pain in more than 80% of users
  • Greatly increases endurance, muscle recovery and workout performance
  • Reduces the risk of cancer
  • Supports normal blood sugar level in diabetics and prediabetics
  • Reduces or eliminates carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Causes cancer cells to commit suicide (apoptosis)
  • Normalizes histamine levels in people with asthma
  • Greatly improves sperm quality, motility, and count
  • Reduces gastric ulcerations

Astaxanthin is fat-soluble, so it is carried by fat molecules directly to tissues and organs in your body where it is most needed, for example your skeletal muscles, your brain, your breast tissue, retina, and prostate tissue.

Astaxanthin is what makes the flesh of salmon pink. It is also what enables salmon to swim upstream in raging rivers and waterfalls for up to seven days. Without Astaxanthin, salmon are average swimmers, and their survival rate drops to less than one in five. When Astaxanthin is added to the diet of farm raised salmon the survival rate raises from 17% to 98%!

Astaxanthin has been used in various ways to enhance the health of animals. In tests, it has been shown to:

  • Greatly increase the longevity and survival rate
  • Increase egg production by 300% in salmon
  • Significantly lowers salmonella infections in chickens
  • Reduced infections by increasing immune resistance
  • Accelerated the growth of farmed salmon by 6 times
  • Improved egg quality and quantity

Cyanotech produces BioAstin from microalgae. It was the first source of astaxanthin for human nutrition reviewed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In August 1999, BioAstin completed a review by the FDA without objection and was allowed to be sold in the USA as a human dietary supplement.

BioAstin's benefits derive from its superior antioxidant activity and from its ability to support and maintain natural inflammatory response, enhancing skin, muscle and joint health.

JointAstin™ is a powerful formula designed to strengthen, support and nourish your joints, tendons and synovial fluids.

Most popular joint formulas use the very effective Glucosamine. The problem with this is that due to ethical, environmental, health (allergic to shellfish) or even religious concerns or constraints, a large portion of the population cannot or will not eat shellfish, shark or other non-vegetarian sourced supplements. Currently all these people do not have an option for a comprehensive joint maintenance formula.

JointAstin™, is the first non-animal source, completely vegetarian joint formula on the market. JointAstin is a powerful formula designed to strengthen, support and nourish your joints, tendons and synovial fluids. Doctors Bob Corish and Leonard Smith, MD, developed this unique formula based on clinically proven ingredients and centered on BioAstin, the most powerful natural antioxidant, clinically validated for joint and tendon related conditions.

DIRECTIONS: Four capsules per day with meals will supply the BioAstin and Glucosamine necessary to support healthy joints. Each bottle contains 120 capsules for a full month's supply.
