Naturally occurring antioxidants play a key role in our bodies by helping us repair damage caused by free radicals. However, more often than not, free radicals far outnumber the naturally occurring antioxidants. That’s why, in order for our bodies to maintain balance, it is necessary to supplement with man-made antioxidants.

As usual, choosing natural supplements is an excellent way to fill in the gaps in nutritional intake. AOR’s well-sourced, non-GMO, vegan Astaxanthin Ultra formula offers antioxidants benefits in a convenient, one-capsule dose.

As a unique carotenoid that offers exceptional antioxidant protection, Astaxanthin Ultra works with the body to destroy singlet oxygen free radicals. This unique formula is 550 times more potent than vitamin E in this role, and 40 times more potent than beta-carotene. One of the main attributes of astaxanthin is that, unlike other antioxidants, it does not turn into a free radical itself after ridding the body of free radicals.

Astaxanthin benefits different areas of the body. Because it is able to cross the blood-brain barrier, it lessens oxidative stress in the eyes, the brain, and the central nervous system. Astaxanthin promotes cardiovascular and gastrointestinal system health and is also used in the production of many skincare products.

AOR’s Astaxanthin Ultra is a powerful antioxidant supplement that provides optimal support for the body and combats the damaging effects of free radicals.
