King of Carotenoids – Nature’s Strongest Antioxidant

Astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant and helps reduce inflammation, so natural healing can occur.

Powerful health benefits for performance athletes and people with age-related health conditions.

Nature’s strongest antioxidant, Astaxanthin helps fight off the harmful effects of oxidation, caused by free radicals. Prolonged exposure to free radicals is linked to many serious, long-term health problems. By reducing oxidative stress, your body can heal itself – naturally.

In terms of squelching free radicals, Astaxanthin is:

  • 6,000 times stronger than Vitamin C
  • More than 500 times stronger than Vitamin E.

There are over 180 published studies (and a large number of consumer testimonials) that suggest Astaxanthin helps support overall health, recovery from exertion and strenuous exercise, and anti-aging.

Support for:

  • Eye, brain, skin and cardiovascular health
  • Recovery after Exercise (joints, tendons, muscles)
  • Healthy normal immune response
  • Cellular mitochondrial function.

The only antioxidant which protects the entire cell – inside and out.

Regenurex Astaxanthin is one of the purest, most natural forms of Astaxanthin.

In nature, Astaxanthin is produced in microalgae, to protect the algae from extended exposure to harsh environments, including the lack of water, nutrients, and sunlight.

Regenurex Astaxanthin is made from a naturally-sourced strain of freshwater microalgae called Haematococcus Pluvialis, found in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. Grown in pure, alpine water in above-ground photobioreactors for optimum growing conditions to maintain the health of the algae throughout their life cycle. This process produces a consistent quality product.

Regenurex Astaxanthin uses a cold-infusion extraction process, which does not use any chemicals nor leave any residues. The algae are gently mixed with vegetable oil to extract the lipids (the algae oil) together with the Astaxanthin (similar to how coffee and tea are infused using water). This ensures that all benefits of the whole algae are preserved.

Regenurex has a pleasant odor, does not smell or taste like fish,  and does not regurgitate.

Benefits:

Joint Health

Oxidative stress has been implicated in the progression of joint disease and other age-related degenerative diseases, which are most often associated with inflammation (1). Most treatments with anti-inflammatories help to relieve pain but don’t deal with the underlying problem of free radicals. Studies in humans and in vitro have demonstrated astaxanthin reduces various inflammatory responses that are known to cause pain and inflammation (2; 3).  Astaxanthin has been shown in elderly dogs to lower inflammatory markers (4). The results showed improved mitochondrial function by alleviating oxidative damage to cellular DNA and protein.

Heart Health

There is growing evidence that oxidative stress and inflammation are associated with the risk of heart disease (1). Oxidation of low-density lipoproteins (LDL, bad cholesterol) has been linked to an increase in the formation of plaques in blood vessels (2). Astaxanthin has been shown to reduce oxidation of LDL (3) and reduce LDL and oxidative stress in a human trial of overweight individuals (4).  Animal studies also showed that astaxanthin may support a delayed progression in high-risk stroke cases (5). It has also been shown clinically that astaxanthin reduces C-reactive protein, which is a biomarker for inflammation and associated with a greater risk of developing heart disease (6).

Brain Health

There is increasing evidence that many diseases of the brain (including Alzheimer's and dementia) are related to oxidative stress (1) and inflammation (2). There are several published studies performed using laboratory animals that suggest that astaxanthin may support the prevention of certain neurodegenerative diseases as a result of its strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties (3; 4). Studies have also shown that astaxanthin improves cognitive function and memory in people middle-aged and older (5). Astaxanthin was also shown to reduce the reactive oxygen species phospholipid hydroperoxides, which accumulate abnormally in erythrocytes of dementia patients (6).

Skin Health

Oxidative stress plays a major role in the aging process. Exposure to UV radiation results in the production of reactive oxygen species and inflammation.  This process results in the breakdown of the extracellular matrix – collagen and elastic fiber – leading to the formation of wrinkles (1). The body’s ability to counteract the excess generation of free radicals is diminished with age. Clinical studies have shown that oral supplementation of astaxanthin results in a decrease in fine lines and wrinkles, higher skin moisture, and increased elasticity (2). Astaxanthin was shown in a recent study to inhibit inflammatory cytokine and matrix metalloprotease secretions in cells exposed to UVB radiation (3).

Eye Health

Astaxanthin crosses the blood-retinal barrier and has been shown to improve eye health. Oxidative stress is associated with the formation of many eye disorders (1). The eye is particularly susceptible to oxidative stress and astaxanthin has been shown to prevent oxidation of lipids in human lens cells (2). In an animal study, it has also been shown to reduce oxidative stress and inflammation in the eye (3). In combination with other antioxidants, it was shown to improve vision in patients at risk for AMD (4). Macular degeneration is one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States in people over 50 years of age. Astaxanthin has also been shown to reduce eye strain and fatigue, which may result from excessive exposure to blue light from computers and other electronic devices (5)

Muscle Health

Within your muscle tissues, the mitochondria are the powerhouses that produce up to 95% of the body’s energy. Unfortunately, this energy production also produces additional free radicals. The harder your workout, the more free radicals you produce, resulting in tired and sore muscles. Astaxanthin targets the mitochondria, working to minimize the impact of these free radicals and reducing damaging oxidation and inflammation. In a 2011 human trial, the group taking astaxanthin had significantly improved cycling time trials over the control group.  In addition, astaxanthin supplementation led to increased power output over the control group (1). In human trials involving soccer players, training was associated with an increase in free radicals and oxidative stress (2).  Supplementation with astaxanthin prevented exercise-induced free radical production and depletion of non-enzymatic antioxidants. In another trial, soccer players taking astaxanthin showed an increased mucosal immune response, reduced muscle damage, and lowered inflammation caused by intense physical exercise (3).

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • Does Regenurex have an aftertaste?

    No. Some brands have an unpleasant odor or a fish-like taste, and some people find that they tend to “regurgitate” that taste after eating it. Regenurex has no real odor or taste.  

  • How is Regenurex different from other brands of Astaxanthin?

    We grow our microalgae from a local strain of H. Pluvialis in pure mountain water in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.

    We grow the algae in above ground photobioreactors (stainless steel tanks with artificial lights) so that we can control the conditions in which the algae grow and keep them healthy and free of contamination. Some other brands grow their algae outside in large ponds or in glass tubes. We think we are able to produce a more consistent product because we can fully control the conditions. We use a mild extraction process which we call “Cold Infused” – which uses vegetable oil to gently extract the astaxanthin from the algae at moderate temperatures.

    We do not use harsh chemicals in this process. Other brands need to dehydrate the algae first and extract their astaxanthin using a process called Super Critical CO2 (Carbon dioxide) in which they blast the algae with liquid CO2 (elevated temperature and pressure). Some astaxanthin in China is extracted using solvents such as ethyl acetate or acetone as part of the extraction process.

    We think the natural extraction process is better. We compare our natural extraction methods versus other chemical or solvent-based extraction methods as being like the difference between fresh squeezed orange juice vs orange juice from concentrate. When it comes to food and supplements, alive and natural is better than dehydrated and chemical.  

  • Why haven’t I heard of this before?

    Astaxanthin (the active ingredient) has been around in nature since the beginning of time, but the algae are difficult to grow in large amounts. It has been available as a dietary supplement for about 15 years, but there is only enough grown for about 1 million people to consume out of the 7 billion people on the planet.

    Because there is a limited supply, the larger supplement makers don’t always carry it. With a limited supply, there is no reason for companies to spend much on education & advertising.  

  • I have a fish or shellfish allergy, can I still take Regenurex?

    Yes. Nothing in our product is derived from fish or shellfish, our all-natural product is made from freshwater algae. However, people may experience an allergic reaction if they have allergies or sensitivity to any of the ingredients in Regenurex. Always use caution when trying something new to be sure it is safe for you.  

  • How can I be sure it will work for me? How can I be sure it is safe for me?

    You won’t know for sure if it is right for you until you take it. If you have any concerns about taking the product you should consult your doctor. But it is important you ask your doctor the right questions. If you ask them if this will help you with any particular condition, they will probably tell you that the research is not conclusive. But if you ask them if it is safe to take the product, they will almost certainly say yes, after all, it is just algae.  

  • How much science has been done to confirm that this stuff works?

    We have included links to studies that have been conducted on astaxanthin. But honestly, no one has conducted the types of studies that would normally be done for a new drug to get FDA approval? Why not? Well, astaxanthin is a natural compound and so can’t be patented. Without patent protection, no one has a financial incentive to prove it works. However, the amount of scientific studies on astaxanthin is significant as there are over 200 reports in scientific journals.  

  • Are there any conditions where a person should be extra careful about taking it?

    Yes, one that we know of. We have heard some reports of it lowering high blood pressure.

    In one instance we know of, blood pressure actually went from high to low (which also isn’t good for you). We recommend that if you have high blood pressure you consult with your doctor and introduce the product into your diet very gradually while monitoring your blood pressure under doctor’s supervision. This is especially important if you are on medication to lower your blood pressure.  

  • How should Renerurex be taken?

    It is more easily absorbed into the body if it is taken with some sort of oil or fat. Examples of food that is high in oil or fat would include, avocado, olive oil, yogurt, dairy, cheese, cod liver oil, bacon. You should be able to find something that you already eat that would do the trick.  

  • When should Regenurex be taken?

    We recommend taking it in the morning or early afternoon. It seems to be a bit of a mild stimulant, so if you take it in the morning, you may find you have more energy during the day. Then, when bedtime comes you will likely find you are more tired than usual – you will feel like you have done a day of physical labor. Then you will likely sleep longer and deeper than usual. Many people take it just for the improvement of sleep. But be careful, if you take it later in the day or close to bedtime, you might find it keeps you awake instead.  

  • How much wild salmon would I need to eat to get a 12 mg daily amount of astaxanthin?

    About 16 ounces a day or 3-4 servings of salmon. That’s a lot of salmon!  

  • Which foods are naturally high in Astaxanthin?

    Some seafood like wild-caught salmon, shrimp, and krill are particularly high in it. But farmed salmon has very little natural astaxanthin. Why? Wild salmon eat a lot of algae either directly or by eating things that have eaten algae. Farmed salmon eat feed which does not contain much, if any, algae.

    You might be interested to know that astaxanthin is a deep red color and is the reason why wild salmon, shrimp, lobster, and flamingos are pink. Farmed salmon, which is grown on processed feed, has a more grey color. Salmon farmers solve this by feeding the salmon synthetic astaxanthin, derived from petrochemicals which makes the salmon pink but which doesn’t seem to have the same health benefits for humans, or for the fish themselves!!  

  • Can’t I just get all the Astaxanthin I need from food?

    If everything you ate was grown outside in completely natural conditions, you might. You’d get a little bit from everything you eat. But most of the food we eat is grown in controlled conditions, without the presence of algae, so it contains very little or no astaxanthin at all.  

  • How do I know Regenurex is safe?

    Antioxidants eliminate free radicals, which means that initially, your body will have more waste to eliminate. There have been a few cases where people started with a high dose and then experienced some loosening of the bowels. This hasn’t happened often, but as a precaution, we suggest taking 1 soft gel per day for the first few days, then 2 capsules per day for a week and then continuing to increase, if needed.  

  • Should I start with the full dosage?

    Antioxidants eliminate free radicals, which means that initially, your body will have more waste to eliminate. There have been a few cases where people started with a high dose and then experienced some loosening of the bowels. This hasn’t happened often, but as a precaution, we suggest taking 1 soft gel per day for the first few days, then 2 capsules per day for a week and then continuing to increase, if needed.  

  • Is there a maximum safe dose?

    In the US the maximum allowable daily dose is 12 mg, which is three soft gels. Some high-level athletes take higher doses, when they are competing or doing strenuous training. There are no harmful side effects in any of the safety studies performed on Astaxanthin.  

  • What dosage do you recommend?

    We recommend taking between 1-3 soft gels per day. Therefore, a bottle of 120 soft gels will last between 1-4 months.  

  • Regenurex, seems to work on so many different things – joints, muscles, eyes, brain etc. How is that possible?

    Regenurex contains Astaxanthin (asta-zan-thin) which is the world’s most powerful antioxidant. It removes free radicals which cause oxidative stress that is associated with inflammation. Inflammation is at the root of many age-related illnesses.

    Sometimes, inflammation prevents the body’s normal healing processes from taking place. If you can reduce inflammation, often the body will heal itself. It also crosses the blood-brain barrier and blood-retinal barrier which many other supplements cannot do. That’s why Regenurex seems to help with so many unrelated conditions. Those conditions all have a common underlying cause – inflammation – and Regenurex helps with that.
