What is natural astaxanthin?
Natural astaxanthin is a carotenoid, like lycopene in tomatoes and β-carotene in carrots, and is an approved antioxidant ingredient for dietary supplements and foods. It has antioxidant activity in the body. In nature, salmon store natural astaxanthin in their muscles to give them the endurance to swim upstream to spawn. They transfer astaxanthin to their role to protect the role DNA from being damaged by the UV rays in sunlight.
All of our AstaReal natural astaxanthin in ASTASHINE is extracted from the natural freshwater green algae Haematococcus pluvialis. It is a non-GMO astaxanthin source.
Our preferred partner AstaReal grows non-GMO natural Haematococcus algae, a source of astaxanthin, at our cultivation facility in Moses Lake, WA, under strict controls. Haematococcus algae are grown under artificial light in a clean, sealed, indoor facility. By growing Haematococcus algae indoors, we prevent contamination by dirt, organisms, and other substances.
To experience the optimal effects of astaxanthin, we recommend daily consumption of 4 mg Moreover, to maximize absorption efficiency through the intestines; we recommend that both capsules be taken whole, with water, after breakfast, lunch, dinner or along with food.

We recommend taking 4 mg/day based on the product approved by FSSAI(Food Safety and Standards Authority of India).
To get 4 mg of astaxanthin through food intake, a person would need to consume one medium-sized fillets of sockeye salmon. Crab and shrimp also contain a substantial amount of astaxanthin, particularly in their shells. However, you would have to consume an enormous amount of crab or shrimp to get 4 mg of astaxanthin. For example, you would have to eat crabmeat from 5 crabs to get the recommended amount. Taking astaxanthin in supplemental form allows you to avoid excess salt and cholesterol consumption that would result from consuming 4 mg of astaxanthin from seafood.

According to clinical data, even if your consumption exceeds the recommended amount, it should not have any adverse effects on your body.
