You might have heard of big-name antioxidants, such as vitamin C, CoQ10, and beta-carotene, but have you heard of astaxanthin? This fat-soluble antioxidant is a keto-carotenoid that belongs to the same family as beta-carotene, lycopene, and lutein. It can provide a multitude of health benefits, such as promoting the healthy function of your skin, heart, eyes, joints, and immune system.

Like the beta-carotene found in carrots, astaxanthin is a naturally occurring pigment with extraordinary nutritional properties. It's primarily produced in the wild by single-celled microalgae, which are then ingested by shrimp, trout, salmon, and other sea creatures, giving them their reddish or pinkish hue.

Regularly consuming these brightly colored seafoods can boost your intake of astaxanthin by a small amount, but you can get a much more concentrated form from supplements, without the worry of mercury contamination commonly found in seafood.

Glyphosate-tested Chief Originals Astaxanthin is one of nature's most potent antioxidants in softgel form. Our high-quality softgels have been carefully lab-manufactured in a controlled environment with meticulous lab testing for glyphosate, heavy metals and microbiology to ensure that you get only the best and cleanest astaxanthin supplements possible.

Chief Originals Astaxanthin is the only brand of astaxanthin in the world that is routinely tested for possible glyphosate contamination.


Because astaxanthin is fat soluble, you can maximize its distribution to your body's cells by taking it with flax oil, coconut oil, fish oils or Ahiflower, our vegan-friendly alternative to fish oils. Your entire nervous system depends on fatty acids to function properly, and this includes your eyes, brain, hearing and spinal cord. Astaxanthin is also used by athletes to support natural endurance, stamina and recovery from physical exertion. Try it and observe how it protects you best. This is a multi-function nutrient that goes beyond any single organ or concern. It assists nearly the entire body in defending you from the harsh environment of a toxic world."

Astaxanthin is often called the “King of Carotenoids,” since it is at least 10x more powerful than other antioxidant carotenoids, such as zeaxanthin, lutein, and beta-carotene. It's even 100 times stronger than vitamin E. Astaxanthin, one of nature's most potent antioxidants, is a fat-soluble antioxidant created by single-celled organisms that use this remarkable natural molecule to survive for years without food or water, under harsh sunlight. Furthermore, astaxanthin does not become a pro-oxidant in the body, setting it apart from other, less effective antioxidants.

As a dietary supplement, astaxanthin acts as a powerful lipid-soluble antioxidant that can help improve strength, endurance, and stamina. It can also help support recovery after exertion and scavenge for free radicals. Chief Originals Astaxanthin is derived entirely from high-quality microalgae, the most stable and sustainable source of astaxanthin available today. (It's from Mother Nature, in other words, not synthetic sources.) These all-natural microalgae are carefully grown in a lab-controlled environment to prevent contamination from open-air pollutants.

Why Chief Originals Astaxanthin 

is such a potent antioxidant

Compared to other potent antioxidants, astaxanthin is simply more powerful and effective at some physiological processes. Because of its oxygen-quenching properties, astaxanthin helps prevent damaging oxidation in the body, and its free radical-scavenging abilities make it a powerful asset for athletes and those who exert themselves on a regular basis. If you want to maximize the potency of astaxanthin, you can take up to 12 milligrams per day. Each soft gel of Chief Originals Astaxanthin contains this amount, making it the perfect way to get your daily dose of this super-antioxidant.

What makes Chief Originals Astaxanthin so unique?

Astaxanthin can be harnessed from many sources and it can even be synthetically generated – but all Chief Originals Astaxanthin is derived from clean and carefully cultivated microalgae. These single-celled microorganisms provide the most stable and concentrated source of astaxanthin that's also naturally occurring, sustainable, and eco-friendly. 

Chief Originals Astaxanthin is also one of the cleanest and highest quality astaxanthin supplements on the market because it's naturally grown in a controlled environment with no exposure to open-air pollution or contamination. We also thoroughly lab test our high-quality astaxanthin for glyphosate, microbiology, and heavy metals, so that all you get is entirely natural, non-GMO, lab-verified astaxanthin that you can feel good about taking.
