Leah, Age 51:
"I have been a runner for 25 years and most recently started to experience stiffness in my feet and ankles when I got out of bed in the morning. After a little research I decided to start BioAstin. In about one week I noticed a remarkable difference, no stiffness in the morning. I am now able to get out of bed without hesitation and no limping along for the first hour of my day!"

Where does Astaxanthin Come From?
Astaxanthin is a red pigment found in a wide variety of natural organisms. It is similar to chlorophyll, which is found in green plants and vegetables, and beta-carotene, which is found in orange plants and vegetables. Plants and animals that exhibit intense red coloring tend to be very high in astaxanthin, which is itself one of the worlds most powerful carotenoids.
Where is Astaxanthin Found in Nature?
Unlike chlorophyll and beta-carotene, which are both found in terrestrial plants, astaxanthin is found predominantly in marine life. A form of micro-algae, astaxanthin is consumed by many different types of aquatic life, and it's intense red pigmentation results in these animals having red or pink flesh, or outer shells.
Because of this, one of the highest concentrations of astaxanthin, other than H. pluvialis (the truest form of the micro-algae and what fish eat), is found in Wild Pacific sockeye salmon. This pigment is what gives the fish's flesh it's signature deep red hue and incredible health-benefitting antioxidant properties. Other natural sources of astaxanthin include lobster, artic shrimp, crab, crawfish, red trout, algae, and krill. Red-colored birds often get their coloring by eating fish and plants that are high in astaxanthin, but they do not typically have a high concentration of the pigment in their bodies.
