BioAstin® Natural Astaxanthin

BioAstin® Natural Astaxanthin is an exceptionally strong antioxidant as well as a natural anti-inflammatory that works through multiple pathways to combat inflammation throughout the body. BioAstin’s anti-inflammatory properties are extremely important as scientists find more and more evidence that inflammation is a leading cause of many life threatening diseases such as cancer, heart disease, stroke and Alzheimer’s. And now that prescription anti-inflammatories have been found to have negative side effects, BioAstin’s role as an anti-inflammatory is becoming very attractive to people looking for a safe, natural alternative to prescription products.

How is BioAstin Produced?

BioAstin® is extracted from Haematococcus microalgae grown on the pristine Kona Coast of Hawaii’s Big Island. Cyanotech, the producer of BioAstin, is regarded as the premier microalgae producer in the world with over 20 years of commercial production on one of the world’s largest microalgae farms. Cyanotech holds six patents, three on the production of microalgae and three use patents for BioAstin for carpal tunnel syndrome, cold and cancer sores, and as an internal and topical sunblock.

World's Strongest Antioxidant

Unparalleled Antioxidant Protection

The graphs above show two different ways of measuring antioxidant strength: Singlet oxygen quenching and free radical elimination. While there are many ways to measure antioxidant strength, these are considered two of the most important. BioAstin has proven to be much stronger than all other antioxidants in both tests. And unlike many other antioxidants, BioAstin can cross the "blood brain barrier" to bring much needed antioxidant protection to the eyes, brain and central nervous system.

Anti-Inflammatory Applications

BioAstin® has been proven beneficial in several double blind, placebo controlled human clinical trials involving people with:

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Joint and Muscle Soreness after Exercise
  • Inflammation of the Skin from UV Exposure (Sunburn)


Safe & Natural Anti-Inflammatory

BioAstin Is Safe?

Unlike prescription antiinflammatories which work through a single pathway in a highly concentrated manner and can have side effects, BioAstin works on multiple inflammatory pathways in a much gentler manner. In several safety studies and in many years of human use, BioAstin has never been shown to have contra-indications or side effects. BioAstin is safe for people of all ages and has no interactions with prescription medications.

Strength and Endurance

The greatest feat of strength and endurance is the upstream swim of the salmon to spawn. Salmon fight their way up raging rivers and waterfalls for up to seven days. Astaxanthin is found in the highest concentration in the animal world in the muscles of the salmon. Scientists theorize that this concentration of Astaxanthin in the salmon's muscles gives them the strength and stamina to complete this greatest of all endurance events.

“Iron Max” - Triathlete

Max Burdick is 78 years old. He has been competing in Ironman Triathlons for years, but could not complete this grueling event when he was in his early 70's. Max started taking BioAstin a few years ago and swears by it. Max can now finish the Ironman and attributes this to BioAstin. How is this possible? Astaxanthin appears to assist muscle function by reducing free radical damage during exercise, thus allowing the muscles to use oxygen more efficiently and to recover quickly. What this may mean for you even if you're not an athlete is more energy, stamina and strength during your daily routine.

Additional Benefits

  • Immune function
  • Cholesterol
  • Eyes
  • Brain
  • Central nervous system

Astaxanthin has many other positive benefits. Astaxanthin has been shown to increase immune function, to help regulate blood lipids and cholesterol, and since Astaxanthin is one of the few antioxidants that can cross the blood brain barrier, it can bring antioxidant protection to the brain, the eyes and the central nervous system.

BioAstin is produced from Haematococcus microalgae. Haematococcus is a green algae that hyperaccumulates Astaxanthin when stressed, turning the green algae to a deep red color. The Astaxanthin shields the algae and works as a "protective forcefield," enabling it to live for decades in the sun without any food or water!
