Astaxanthin & Bilberry Extract is a daily-use health supplement designed to combat the negative effects of free radicals through powerful antioxidants.
Free radicals are produced from some of our lifestyle choices, like smoking, sun, air pollution exposure, and consuming fried fatty foods… but also by the oxygen we breathe. We need oxygen but it also damages our cells and progressively ages us. Our bodies have mechanisms to keep oxidative damage in check and a big portion of this defence comes from dietary factors known as antioxidants.
The antioxidants in Astaxanthin & Bilberry Extract are derived from naturally cultivated microalgae and bilberries commonly found in Swedish nature. The high-quality formula also includes vitamins C & E to help protect cells from oxidative stress. 30 capsules per jar.

Astaxanthin is a carotenoid and is a red, fat soluble pigment. It can be found in algae, salmon, trout, shrimp, crustaceans and some birds. Astaxanthin, unlike some carotenoids, does not convert to vitamin A in our body. Too much vitamin A is toxic for humans, but astaxanthin is not. The antioxidants in Astaxanthin & Bilberry Extract are derived from microalgae found in the pristine waters of the Stockholm archipelago.
Bilberries are an important source of vitamin C, fibre and antioxidants. They contain a very potent group of antioxidants called anthocyanins which belongs to the family of flavonoid-related polyphenols. This is the pigment that gives Bilberries their dark purple skin and flesh.
Vitamin C is widely renowned for its antioxidant capability. This contributes to the protection of cells within the body from oxidative stress. Another benefit is that it helps in the regeneration of vitamin E.
Another superb source of antioxidant power, helping to protect the cells in your body from oxidative stress.
