Vegan Astaxanthin 4 mg

Astaxanthin is one of the most powerful free-radical scavengers yet discovered.

Astaxanthin is one of a group of naturally occurring pigments known as carotenoids. In nature, carotenoids are produced principally by plants and their microscopic relatives. Animals cannot synthesize carotenoids and thus all natural carotenoids are first made in plants. As a fat-soluble nutrient astaxanthin can function as a potent free-radical scavenger. A variety of scientific studies have shown health benefits from astaxanthin*.  

Astaxanthin used in this product is from a plant source: Non-GMO microalgae Haematococcus pluvialis, grown in USA and/or Europe using clean water.* Extraction of astaxanthin from the algal biomass is done by low-temperature extraction and without the use of harsh solvents.  

DEVA Vegan Astaxanthin is 100% animal-free, and guaranteed for purity, freshness and labeled potency. Remember all DEVA Products are 100% vegan, vegetarian and are registered by the Vegan Society, the non-profit organization that actually invented the word "vegan".
