DNA and Cellular Protection
Astaxanthin, the fat-soluble compound that gives salmon its pink color, is a potent antioxidant that is loaded with numerous health benefits. In fact, it's been shown to help optimize joint, immune, brain, cardiovascular, DNA, and mitochondria health. It also supports healthy blood sugar levels for those already in the normal range. And astaxanthin crosses the blood-eye barrier, supporting vascular health within the eye and protecting the eyes' sensitive cells. Because of all that, it's becoming highly valued as a nutritional supplement.
Unfortunately all the beautiful benefits of Astaxanthin are limited by its low absorption … normally as low as 50%. Astaxanthin with Phospholipids combines 4 mg of natural astaxanthin with 80 mg of a proprietary blend of four phospholipids to facilitate maximum absorption of astaxanthin into the bloodstream, where it's transported to cells throughout the body.

But because astaxanthin is a fat-soluble antioxidant, its absorption has typically been low. In fact, some studies show that as little as 50% of oral astaxanthin is absorbed into your bloodstream.28,29
