PHARMACOLOGY
Astaxanthin has both a very potent neutralizing e ect against singlet oxygen as well as a powerful scavenging ability for free radicals. Therefore Astaxanthin serves as an extremely e ective antioxidant.

Astaxanthin is absorbed by passive di usion into the intestinal epithelium; this carotenoid is then incorporated into lipoproteins, transported to the liver via lymph and blood, and partly resecreted with lipoproteins. More than 70% of the Astaxanthin is contained in the high- density lipoprotein (HDL) fraction of the plasma and Astaxanthin concentration in the small intestine is highest, followed by subcutaneous fat, abdominal fat, spleen, liver, heart, kidney and skin. The lowest concentration is in the muscles.
