Pure Essentials AstaPure® Astaxanthin Complex is a natural extract from the microalgae Haematococcus pluvialis (H. Pluvialis) – the same algae responsible for the pink-red pigmentation of wild salmon and crustaceans. AstaPure® contains the highest available concentration of astaxanthin, as well as a complex of other beneficial carotenoids including lutein, canthaxanthin, zeaxanthin and beta-carotene, as well as amino acids and fatty acids, which together offer a broad range of health benefits, enhance its bioavailability and increase cell membrane stability.
Of all the carotenoids, astaxanthin is nature’s most potent, with the highest known ORAC value (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) – a measure of its ability to combat oxidative stress. Astaxanthin’s ability to quench free radicals is 6,000 times greater than vitamin C, 800 times that of coenzyme Q10 and 550 times that of vitamin E.
Astaxanthin can anchor itself in all cell membranes, meaning it has the potential to deliver broad-reaching health benefits throughout the body. Studies to date show that astaxanthin’s ability to reduce and terminate oxidative stress, protect against unwanted inflammation and protect cell structure and function, provide health-enhancing properties for the skin, cell cycle, immune health, cardiovascular health, brain function, joints and muscles, energy, gut and liver health.

Directions: For adults and children aged 12+: take 1-2 capsules daily. For intensive support, the dose can be increased to 4 capsules daily.
