Description
AstaFactor Sports Formula is loaded with 10 mg per serving of nature's supercharged carotenoid, astaxanthin. AstaFactor brand astaxanthin, derived from the microscopic green algae species called Haematococcus pluvialis, is the most concentrated natural source of astaxanthin in the world. Because astaxanthin is an oxygenated carotenoid, it has superior antioxidant capabilities. It serves as an antioxidant by either scavenging free radicals or quenching singlet oxygen.

Benefits
As a member of the carotenoid family, astaxanthin is a fat-soluble nutrient with a unique molecular structure that gives it superior antioxidant capabilities and anti-inflammatory and immune-regulating properties. Because of its small molecular weight, natural astaxanthin works directly at the site of muscle tissue with beneficial effects, particularly for athletes and very physically active people. Findings in recent human studies have reported:
  • Faster muscle recovery time between workouts - allowing for more frequent workouts
  • Enhanced athletic performance as a result of more workouts and extended training time
  • Symptom management of aches and pains in chronic back pain, tendinitis and carpel tunnel syndrome
  • Acts as an anti-inflammatory in joints, including arthritis, to improve flexibility and mobility
  • Functions as an internal sunscreen - extends exposure time to UV rays before burning
  • Boosts immune system function
  • Enhances the antioxidant effects of Vitamins E and C, increasing free-radical scavenging and singlet oxygen quenching within the body
RECOMMENDED USE
1 daily serving = 2 softgels = 10 mg

Astaxanthin
Astaxanthin in Nature (Haematococcus pluvialis algae)

Haematococcus pluvialis is believed to be the world's richest known source of astaxanthin, a unique natural carotenoid pigment and biological antioxidant. Haematococcus algae are microscopic green algae, encountered all over the world.

They occur in continental and coastal rock pools, water holes and other similar small bodies of water, where they naturally strive as tiny free swimming flagellated algae smaller than the cross-section of a human hair. When environmental conditions become adverse, i.e., when nutrients start becoming scarce, or the water pool starts drying out and the algae are increasingly exposed to direct sunlight, they enter a resting phase that allows them to survive for prolonged periods, until the environment becomes much more favorable.

When entering this resting phase, the algae naturally start accumulating high amounts of astaxanthin (3% or more of their dry weight). It is believed that the astaxanthin plays an important role in protecting the algae against UV light damage and photo-oxidation of the poly-unsaturated lipids which they also accumulate in significant amount during this phase of their life.

Mera Pharmaceuticals combines the natural benefits of the abundant sunlight, clean water and air, and unique climatic conditions of Hawaii's Kona coast, with world-leading technology to optimize production of the Haematoccoccus algae incorporated in AstaFactor.

Algae produced under those conditions represent the highest quality possible source of natural astaxanthin.
