Astaxanthin & Skin Health

Natural Astaxanthin has been clinically validated to visibly improve the skin’s appearance and prevent sunburn and UV damage when taken internally.  In 2002, Cyanotech Corporation received a patent for the use of Astaxanthin as an internal sunscreen.  The patent was based on groundbreaking research which showed that supplementation with only 4mg per day of BioAstin® Astaxanthin for two weeks led to an increase in the amount of time subjects could withstand UV exposure before burning.  Additional research has shown that Astaxanthin reduces fine lines and wrinkles and improves skin moisture levels and skin elasticity.
