Purium‘s Super Xanthin is made from nature`s most powerful antioxidant, which studies show is 550 times stronger than vitamin E. It helps combat free radical damage to muscles and helps reduce the buildup of lactic acid that causes post-workout soreness. We recommend combining this product with our Super Amino 23 so you can get the most out of your workouts. It also contains a carotenoid that is considered a more potent antioxidant than beta carotene. Astaxanthin helps protect eyes and skin from UV A and B damage by quenching singlet and triplet oxygen.
Bye-bye, lactic acid. Hello, better body!

- May help enhance energy metabolism
The Astaxanthin molecule is similar to beta-carotene, but all evidence indicates that it is far more powerful biological antioxidant. Astaxanthin exhibits strong free radical scavenging activity and protects against lipid peroxidation and oxidative damage of LDL- cholesterol, cell membranes, and body tissues. It is extremely powerful at even low levels. A normal supplemental dose is just 4 mg a day.
Astaxanthin has been the focus of a large and growing number of peer-reviewed scientific publications. Some of the findings are listed in the bullet points below.
Astaxanthin increases strength and endurance (2-8 times greater increase over baseline verses placebo in human clinical study).
Astaxanthin may aid in the protection of cells and mitochondrial membranes from oxidative damage, thus potentially protecting the cell from oxidative damage.
Studies show that Astaxanthin may inhibit lipid peroxidation that causes plaque formation, thus reducing risk of cardiovascular disease.
Astaxanthin alleviates stress and may assist in neurodegenerative conditions Astaxanthin protects the eyes and skin from UV A and B damage by quenching singlet and triplet oxygen.
Astaxanthin may reduce the number of new abnormal cells in the liver.
The ability to create and utilize glycogen is essential to athletic performance.
What’s In it?
Astaxanthin (as AstaREAL® Extract): Astaxanthin is a carotenoid pigment and antioxidant that is similar to beta-carotene. It can be found in shrimp, salmon and other sea creatures with pinkish color. Cultivated from a seed culture in a sterile environment, the growing process begins with essential nutrients and light for optimal growth. Once the culture is dense and in the “green phase,” it is transferred to a stainless steel photobioreactor so the “red phase” can begin, aka production of astaxanthin. The algae then fully matures and is harvested, crushed, dried and put into capsules for consumption.
Cardiovascular and brain studies have linked its properties to lower oxidative stress and inflammation and improved blood flow in capillaries, lipid profiles and mental acuity. Inflammation research furthers claims that astaxanthin supports post-workout and joint soreness by promoting reduced lactic acid build-up, which inhibits athletic achievements and helps the body recover more efficiently. Additionally, astaxanthin helps keep eyes and skin safe from UVA and UVB damage by quenching singlet and triplet oxygen.
Organic Spirulina: These plant-like cyanobacteria are also referred to as blue-green algae. It is filled with nutrients and antioxidants, aiding the body’s healthy response to inflammation. Research shows that spirulina can also support healthy blood lipid levels. Plus, it can help support blood pressure, muscle strength, endurance, muscle fatigue and exercise-induced oxidative damage. Like plants, spirulina can facilitate photosynthesis, producing energy out of sunlight. One of the main components of spirulina is phycocyanin, which gives spirulina its bluegreen color. This antioxidant can help support against free radicals (unstable atoms in the body that can damage cells) and support the body’s response to inflammation.
