H&N New Product Questions
What is Astaxanthin
Astaxanthin is a carotenoid that gives the reddish pigment to some algae, salmon, crab, krill, and lobster. Isotonix® Astaxanthin uses a fully sustainable source of red-pigmented algae. Astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant and it does not become a pro-oxidant so, even under tremendous oxidative stress, astaxanthin does not create free radicals from itself or its metabolism. *
Where is the astaxanthin in Isotonix® Astaxanthin sourced?
This product uses only AstaReal®† Astaxanthin, which is manufactured from carefully cultivated microalgae (Haematococcus pluvialis) in state-of-the-art facilities. In contrast to generic varieties, AstaReal® astaxanthin is unsurpassed for quality control and consistency in manufacture. AstaReal® astaxanthin is frequently selected for clinical research and testing in nutritional applications and it has 14 patents over a span of several areas of health, making AstaReal® your only choice in quality astaxanthin.

Does Isotonix® Astaxanthin need to be taken on an empty stomach?

Which products are best combined with Isotonix® Astaxanthin?
Isotonix® Astaxanthin has multiple benefits and can be combined with products such as Isotonix® Resveratrol for those looking for increased cardiovascular support, Isotonix® Vision Formula for those looking for healthy vision, Isotonix® Coenzyme Q10 for maintaining healthy cholesterol levels and Isotonix® OPC-3® for maximum antioxidant protection. *
Why did we choose to combine 3 powerful antioxidants in the Isotonix® Astaxanthin formula?
We paired these 3 antioxidants specifically because they work in synergy, protecting both sides of the cell membrane—TWO being fat-soluble and the other being water-soluble. Additionally, these three ingredients enhance the power of their partners. Individually, each ingredient has its own strength, yet together the three can quench a varied number of free radical types while effectively recycling one another for maximum protection. *
What is the significance of Isotonix® Astaxanthin being cold-water-soluble?
Unlike many competitors, Isotonix® Astaxanthin is cold-water-soluble and in a powdered form. Not only is cold-water-soluble astaxanthin a temperature-controlled extraction, the cold-water-soluble powder offers a higher concentration of astaxanthin by weight while also dispersing well water without clumping or sticking, making it ideal for on the go activities or travel. In addition, the cold-water-soluble AstaReal® Astaxanthin is a free-flowing powder, allowing for enhanced delivery in a pure vegetable formula.
What differentiates Isotonix® Astaxanthin from Prime Astaxanthin?
Isotonix® Astaxanthin is a vegan and gluten-free formula that features 3 powerful antioxidants that work in synergy to protect both sides of the cell membrane—two being fat-soluble and the other being water-soluble. Isotonix® Astaxanthin provides you with efficient absorption of the nutrients within the product. Isotonix® Astaxanthin can be taken with your daily Isotonix® while you can take Prime Astaxanthin later if you want the benefits of 12 mg of pure AstaReal® Astaxanthin. *
