Major Differences from Artificial Astaxanthin
ØSource: Natural is extracted from algae while Artificial is synthesized from petrochemicals.
ØStrength: Natural is 20 – 90 times stronger as an antioxidant.
ØAnimal Trials Prove Superiority: Five different preclinical trials in a variety of animals prove superior efficacy for Natural Astaxanthin for various health benefits including survival rates, resistance to stress, protection of internal organs, growth rates and longevity.
Molecule Shape, Esterification and Synergy: Natural Astaxanthin molecule is shaped differently; is 95% esterified; and comes complexed with small amounts of other naturally-occurring carotenoids.
ØSafety: Natural has an extensive portfolio of human safety studies and over 15 years of commercial use; Artificial has never been tested in humans.
ØEfficacy: Natural has been clinically validated to have many diverse health benefits in approximately 100 human clinical trials; Artificial has never been shown to have any health benefits.
ØDosage: Should Artificial Astaxanthin ultimately be proven safe for long-range human consumption, dosage would have to be at least 20 times greater than Natural due to its inferior antioxidant profile.
