Why combine Astaxanthin and Omega-3’s?

Studies have shown that the antioxidant astaxanthin is integral in eye structure and function, skin health and heart health. Astaxanthin exerts all of the aforementioned benefits through the fundamental premise of protecting the cell membrane from lipid peroxidation, and in this role it is 550 times more effective than Vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol). It is also 40 times more potent than beta-carotene in quenching singlet oxygen free radicals, and has been shown to have synergistic effects with lycopene, lipoic acid, resveratrol, and omega-3 fatty acids.

More investigation has been conducted over the last few years into the synergistic effects of fish oil and astaxanthin supplementation - a combination naturally found in krill. Astaxanthin also stabilizes the omega-3 fatty acids - preventing them from going rancid and improving their shelf life. Research into the synergistic effects of astaxanthin and omega-3 is compelling, however  there are few commercial formulas that combine the two and even fewer vegan options. The nutraceutical market is ripe with fish oil supplements that provide high dosages of EPA and DHA. With this popularity comes the increasing environmental burden required to extract these oils. Over-fishing is certainly a growing concern with global fish populations declining. While krill oil supplements advertise the benefits of the naturally occurring combination of omega-3’s with astaxanthin, this has led to a significant negative environmental impact. As Antarctic krill populations decline, researchers are finding their penguin predators being impacted as well.  Developing these supplements is complicated by the fact that pollution has led to increased risks for heavy metal toxicity. Further, some individuals cannot or choose not to consume fish or fish products. Therefore, there is a clear need for an algal sourced omega-3 supplement.

AOR’s Omega-3 Astaxanthin V-Softgel™ combines algal sources of both astaxanthin and polyunsaturated fatty acids EPA and DHA. Sourced from algae, AOR’s Omega-3 Astaxanthin V-Softgel™ is a suitable alternative for vegetarians and vegans, and is also more sustainable than conventional sources of both ingredients with no fishy aftertaste.
