Cardiovascular, Joint, Brain & Skin Health

Astaxanthin is one of nature's most powerful antioxidants with free radical scavenging strength as much as 65 times greater than vitamin C and 54 times greater than beta-carotene.

Dr. Mercola is so convinced of astaxanthin's benefits that he has been consuming Hawaiian astaxanthin every day since he first learned of it. And since he found it so beneficial, he had to create his own formula Mercola Astaxanthin with ALA.

Mercola Astaxanthin with ALA has the potential to

  • Support your brain/nervous system's protection from free radicals
  • Support your joint and skeletal system health
  • Increase your strength and stamina
  • Improve your endurance and enable faster recovery from exercise
  • Help reduce your joint and muscle soreness following a workout

Dr. M. uses only organic astaxanthin from microalgae (the preferred source Haematococcus pluvialis extract) which is grown in pure, clean glass tubes, rather than open ponds like other products, and is untouched by chemical solvents, preservatives, plasticizers and residues.

Why ALA?

You may be wondering why ALA is present in the formula. Dr. Mercola specifically chose it because it is an omega-3 fatty acid that can act as an excellent "carrier" for Hawaiian astaxanthin to help maximize absorption.
