is one of the most powerful antioxidants from Mother Nature!

One of the most potent antioxidants found in nature, astaxanthin provides a multitude of health benefits, such as supporting the healthy functions of your skin, heart, brain, eyes, joints and immune system. It also has the ability to support optimal energy levels, as well as overall strength, endurance and stamina.

If you want to experience the full benefits of astaxanthin, it’s important to get your astaxanthin from a reliable source. However, clean lots of lab-verified astaxanthin are extremely difficult to acquire. That's why the Health Ranger Store has made it our mission to source only ultra-clean astaxanthin supplements at an affordable price.

Get high-quality natural astaxanthin in a convenient softgel form with Chief Originals® Astaxanthin Softgels. Our astaxanthin is derived from clean and carefully cultivated Haematococcus pluvialis microalgae, one of the richest natural sources of astaxanthin. Our high-quality astaxanthin softgels are Natural Algae Astaxanthin (NAXA)-Verified and are carefully manufactured in a controlled lab environment with meticulous lab testing for glyphosate, heavy metals and microbiology. They also contain no gluten, GMOs, pesticides or herbicides of any kind and are non-irradiated and BSE-free.

What is astaxanthin?**

Often called the “King of Carotenoids,” astaxanthin is a fat-soluble keto-carotenoid that has earned this title from its potent free radical-scavenging abilities and other health-supporting properties. Some of these health benefits include supporting healthy skin, eye, immune, cognitive and cardiovascular functions. A member of the subclass xanthophyll, astaxanthin also belongs to the same family as other powerful, naturally occurring antioxidants such as lutein, lycopene and beta-carotene.

While astaxanthin can be found in a wide variety of organisms, this organic, reddish pigment is primarily produced by single-celled microalgae (Haematococcus pluvialis). Because of their natural abundance of astaxanthin, these remarkable microorganisms appear bright red in color and are able to survive for years under harsh sunlight. When other aquatic animals, such as krill, trout, shrimp and salmon, consume large quantities of these microalgae, these marine creatures acquire their characteristic pinkish or reddish hues, as well as enhanced vitality and other health benefits. Astaxanthin gives salmon their ability to perform incredible feats of endurance and physical strength, such as leaping up rushing waterfalls against the current. Humans can also enjoy similar benefits from the regular consumption of astaxanthin.

While it is possible to increase your astaxanthin intake by eating plenty of salmon and other brightly colored seafood, astaxanthin supplements provide a more efficient way to get a concentrated dose of astaxanthin – and all without the worry of mercury contamination commonly found with seafood.


One of Mother Nature’s most powerful antioxidants**

Antioxidants are naturally occurring substances that provide a variety of benefits to different parts of your body. Most importantly, antioxidants can combat the effects of harmful free radicals while supporting your overall health and well-being.

Compared to other antioxidants, astaxanthin is truly one of the most potent and effective free-radical scavengers that can be absorbed by the human body. This is because it is simply more efficient at certain physiological processes than most other antioxidants. Due to its natural oxygen-quenching properties, astaxanthin helps protect against oxidative damage in the body. As one of Mother Nature's most powerful antioxidants, astaxanthin is:

  • 6,000x stronger in antioxidant power than vitamin C
  • 800x better at singlet oxygen quenching than CoQ10
  • 550x stronger than green tea catechins and vitamin E
  • 75x stronger than alpha-lipoic acid
  • 54x more effective at free radical scavenging than beta-carotene
  • 10x more powerful than other antioxidant carotenoids, such as lutein, beta-carotene and zeaxanthin

Additionally, astaxanthin does not become a pro-oxidant in the body, setting it apart from other, less effective antioxidants. 

Health benefits of astaxanthin**


At least 10 times more powerful than beta-carotene and other similarly potent carotenoids, astaxanthin can help protect your eyes against oxidative damage and support optimal eye function. According to a 2008 study that was published in the journal Ophthalmology, regularly supplementing with astaxanthin can help you maintain healthy vision.


According to a study published in the journal Nutrition & Metabolism, supplementing with astaxanthin is a great way to support the optimal functions of your immune system. Astaxanthin also possesses potent antioxidant properties that allow it to support your body's natural immune defenses.


Like many other potent antioxidants, astaxanthin can support healthy cardiovascular function by protecting your heart from oxidative damage. A study that appeared in the Biological & Pharmaceutical Bulletin also found that astaxanthin can help you maintain healthy blood pressure levels already within the normal range. 


Astaxanthin possesses powerful antioxidant properties that can help protect your brain from oxidative stress and support its overall health. A study published in the journal Alternative Medicine Review also indicated that regularly supplementing with astaxanthin can help support optimal cognitive function. 


According to a 2012 study that appeared in the journal Acta Biochimica Polonica, astaxanthin can support the growth of healthy, radiant skin in both men and women. If you spend a lot of time outdoors, it is highly recommended to supplement with powerful antioxidants like astaxanthin.


According to study that appeared in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, compared to most other antioxidants, astaxanthin exhibits the highest antioxidant activity against harmful free radicals. 


According to a study that was conducted by the American Association for Hand Surgery, supplementing with astaxanthin can support the health and mobility of your joints and tendons. Because astaxanthin possesses potent antioxidant properties, it can help protect your joints and tendons from oxidative stress.


According to a study that appeared in the Japanese Journal of Complementary and Alternative Medicine, supplementing with astaxanthin and other antioxidants can support normal recovery after exertion, as well as natural endurance and optimal energy levels.  

Maximize your workout with lab-verified astaxanthin** 

Astaxanthin provides extraordinary nutritional benefits. Its free radical-scavenging abilities make it a powerful asset for both athletes and regular gym-goers. As a dietary supplement, astaxanthin acts as a powerful lipid-soluble antioxidant that can help maintain your body’s natural strength, endurance and stamina. It is also known to support optimal exercise routines.

If you want to maximize the potency of astaxanthin, you can take up to 12 mg per day. With Chief Originals® Astaxanthin Softgels, you can get nature's most potent antioxidant straight from the source. Each individual softgel contains this amount, making it the perfect way to get your daily dose of this super-antioxidant.

NOTE: Since astaxanthin is fat-soluble, make sure to take it with some form of healthy fat in order to make the most out of this supplement.

Why choose Chief Originals® Astaxanthin Softgels?** 


Regularly consuming brightly colored seafoods, such as trout, shrimp, salmon and other sea creatures, can boost your intake of astaxanthin by a small amount. However, you can get a much more concentrated form of astaxanthin from supplements without the risk of mercury and microplastic contamination -- a common problem with seafood. Each softgel of Chief Originals® Astaxanthin provides exactly 12 mg of astaxanthin, the ideal amount recommended by most experts. This makes it easier for you to affordably acquire your daily dose of this potent antioxidant.
