Carotenoids are colors that occur in nature. For example, the carotenoid Astaxanthin is red, and is responsible for the color of salmon, lobster, shrimp and crab. Astaxanthin is 40 times stronger than beta-carotene, 100 times more powerful than vitamin E and 6,000 times stronger than vitamin C, making it the “king of the carotenoids.”*
If you want to source the highest astaxanthin content, seek out wild pacific salmon. Studies show that astaxanthin supplements pack the same anti-inflammatory benefits as fish, so you could also take 6-8mg of the supplement daily.
