Astaxanthin 12mg 50 Softgels - Supports Joint, Skin & Eye Health
Chief Originals® Astaxanthin 12mg 50 Softgels
One of the most powerful antioxidants found in nature, astaxanthin is a fat-soluble keto-carotenoid that belongs to the subclass of xanthophyll. For many people, astaxanthin is the go-to supplement for optimal health because it provides a multitude of health benefits. These include supporting the healthy functions of your brain, heart, eyes, skin, joints, tendons, immune system and more!

Astaxanthin is simply unmatched in its antioxidant strength and potency, earning it the title of “The King of Carotenoids.” It's important to get your astaxanthin from a reliable source, which is why we’re bringing you one of the best and cleanest astaxanthin supplements on the market at an affordable cost.

Derived from clean and carefully cultivated Haematococcus pluvialis microalgae, our Chief Originals® Astaxanthin Softgels deliver high-quality natural astaxanthin in a convenient softgel form. We use only microalgae sustainably grown in a controlled lab environment to ensure that you get only the cleanest astaxanthin supplements on the market. Chief Originals® Astaxanthin Softgels are Natural Algae Astaxanthin (NAXA)-Verified and are exhaustively lab tested for glyphosate, heavy metals and microbiology. Our extremely clean astaxanthin softgels are also non-irradiated and contain no gluten, GMOs, pesticides or herbicides of any kind.

What makes astaxanthin one of Mother Nature’s most powerful antioxidants?**

Among all of the naturally occurring antioxidants in the world, astaxanthin is completely unmatched in its antioxidant strength and potency. Due to its potent oxygen-quenching properties, astaxanthin helps protect the body from oxidative damage. Astaxanthin also possesses a unique molecular structure that allows it to move throughout your body more efficiently than other antioxidants. This makes astaxanthin one of the most powerful free-radical scavengers that can be absorbed by the human body. Compared to other antioxidants, astaxanthin is: 
  • 6,000x more powerful as an antioxidant than vitamin C
  • 800x better at singlet oxygen quenching than CoQ10
  • 550x more powerful than green tea catechins and vitamin E
  • 75x stronger than alpha-lipoic acid
  • 54x more effective at scavenging free radicals than beta-carotene
  • 10x more powerful than other antioxidant carotenoids, such as lutein, zeaxanthin and beta-carotene
Astaxanthin is simply more efficient at influencing some physiological processes than other antioxidants. Furthermore, astaxanthin does not become a pro-oxidant in the body, which sets it apart from other less-effective antioxidants.

NOTE: Since astaxanthin is fat-soluble, make sure to take it with some form of healthy fat in order to make the most out of this supplement.

Health benefits of astaxanthin**

Chief Originals® Astaxanthin Softgels offer a wide range of health benefits. Upgrade your health by investing in a supplement that can keep your body operating in peak condition.

Supports healthy joints and tendons – A study done by the American Association for Hand Surgery found that supplementing with astaxanthin can support the health and mobility of your joints and tendons. Astaxanthin also boasts remarkably potent antioxidant properties and can help protect your joints and tendons from oxidative stress.

Supports a healthy immune system – According to a study published in the journal Nutrition & Metabolism, supplementing with astaxanthin is a great way to support the optimal functions of your immune system. Astaxanthin also possesses potent antioxidant properties that allow it to support your natural immune defenses.

Supports healthy cardiovascular function – Astaxanthin is a potent antioxidant that can support healthy cardiovascular function by protecting your heart against oxidative damage. A study that appeared in the Biological & Pharmaceutical Bulletin also found that astaxanthin can help you maintain healthy blood pressure levels that are already within the normal range. 

Supports optimal brain health – A study published in the journal Alternative Medicine Review reported that regularly supplementing with astaxanthin can help support optimal cognitive function. As an antioxidant, astaxanthin can also help protect your brain from oxidative stress.

Supports healthy eye function – As a potent carotenoid, astaxanthin can support optimal eye function, just like the beta-carotene found in carrots. In fact, astaxanthin is at least 10 times more powerful than beta-carotene and other similar antioxidant carotenoids. According to a 2008 study that appeared in the journal Ophthalmology, regularly supplementing with astaxanthin can help you maintain healthy vision.

Supports healthy, glowing skin – According to a 2012 study published in the journal Acta Biochimica Polonica, astaxanthin can support healthy, radiant skin in both men and women. If you spend a lot of time outdoors, it is recommended that you supplement with powerful antioxidants like astaxanthin.

Aids in normal recovery after exercise – According to a study published in the Japanese Journal of Complementary and Alternative Medicine, supplementing with astaxanthin and other antioxidants can support healthy energy levels and promote normal recovery after exertion.   

Combats oxidative stress – A study that appeared in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry found that astaxanthin exhibits the highest antioxidant activity among antioxidants against harmful free radicals. 

Why choose Chief Originals® Astaxanthin Softgels?** 

It is a safe, easy and cost-efficient way to get astaxanthin – Regularly consuming brightly colored seafoods, such as trout, shrimp, salmon and other sea creatures, can boost your intake of astaxanthin by a small amount. However, you can get a much more concentrated form of astaxanthin from supplements without the risk of mercury contamination -- a common problem with seafood. Each softgel of Chief Originals® Astaxanthin contains exactly 12 mg of astaxanthin, making it easier for you to acquire your daily dose of this potent antioxidant affordably.

It is sustainably sourced and NAXA-Verified – Chief Originals® Astaxanthin Softgels are derived from carefully cultivated microalgae, the most stable and sustainable source of naturally occurring astaxanthin. Chief Originals® Astaxanthin Softgels are also accredited with the NAXA seal by the Natural Algae Astaxanthin Association. The new NAXA Verification Program (NAVP) tests products available to consumers to verify that they contain natural astaxanthin derived from Haematococcus pluvialis algae.

It is thoroughly lab verified for cleanliness and purity – Chief Originals® Astaxanthin Softgels are derived from premium Haematococcus pluvialis microalgae carefully grown in a controlled environment, away from open-air pollution and other contaminants. We also meticulously test our high-quality astaxanthin for glyphosate, heavy metals and microbiology using our in-house mass spectrometer to make sure that you get only the cleanest, highest-quality astaxanthin supplements on the market.
