Prairie Naturals Astaxanthin Plus Details
Mother Nature's Super Antioxidant Trio for Good Vision & Healthy Aging
Once again scientists have discovered the remarkable power of Mother Nature’s innate antioxidant healing system to help us combat disease and age well! Nutritional health researchers suggest that our best antioxidant protection plan is to include a wide variety of antioxidants from a wide range of food and supplemental sources.
What is Prairie Naturals Astaxanthin Plus?
Prairie Naturals Astaxanthin Plus is a synergistic blend of three super potent, natural-source carotenoid antioxidants- Astaxanthin, Lutein, and Zeaxanthin. These specific fat-soluble antioxidants provide the phytochemical support our bodies need to slow and ideally prevent age-related disease and deterioration. As we age, our need for these protective antioxidants increases in order to protect our eyes, skin, brain and even our hearts from the cumulative cellular damage caused by free radicals.
What are the Ingredients in Prairie Naturals Astaxanthin Plus?
Formulated in a base of organic, extra virgin olive oil to enhance absorption, this powerful blend of fat-soluble antioxidants includes:
Derived from the marine microalgae Haematococcus pluvialis, scientists have found that Astaxanthin, a red-hued member of the carotenoid family, crosses the blood barrier of the brain and defends our cells from every potential assault. Our eyes benefit greatly from its versatile and all-encompassing antioxidant properties. Age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinophathy, glaucoma, neuropathy, and inflammatory eye diseases all benefit from its cell-protective powers. With more than 500 times the antioxidant capacity of Vitamin E, this fat-soluble antioxidant is considered the most powerful eye nutrient known! Its natural red colour comes from xanthophylls, a carotenoid pigment that colours salmon, crab, krill and lobster with their distinctive vivid red hues.
Lutein & Zeaxanthin
From the Latin word “luteus” which means “yellow”, lutein and its sister nutrient zeaxanthin, are naturally occurring pigments in the carotenoid family. While every part of our body benefits from the intake of these two fat-soluble antioxidants, our eyes probably benefit the most from lutein and zeaxanthin. Their pigments (derived from marigold flowers) literally deposit in the retina and macula to protect eye cells from oxidative damage (especially from ultra violet light). Published human studies show that supplementation with lutein and zeaxanthin boosts visual function in patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Lutein and zeaxanthin also reduce the incidence of cataract formation.
It’s truly amazing to consider that a tiny micro algae (astaxanthin) working in concert with marigold flowers (lutein and zeaxanthin) provides the most powerful phytochemical antioxidant trio ever discovered! And this botanical trio is not only beneficial for the eyes but for the whole body, too. Mother Nature continues to impress!
