AstaReal’s Astaxanthin in ASTASHINE Silver
Astareal in Astashine contains natural astaxanthin from the microalgae, Haematococcus Pluvialis, and a natural carotenoid that can be found from arctic marine environments to common freshwater rock pools throughout the world.

Astaxanthin is what gives the pink and red color to salmon, shrimp and lobster. In the natural environment, animals depend on their diet to obtain astaxanthin and other carotenoids since they cannot produce carotenoids themselves. The most abundant source of astaxanthin in nature is Haematococcus Pluvialis, which will accumulate astaxanthin in lipid vesicles during periods of nutrient deficiency and environmental stress. Because Haematococcus often grows in places that are exposed to intense sunlight during its dormant phase, astaxanthin functions to protect the cell nucleus against free radicals generated by UV radiation that would otherwise cause damage to its DNA and peroxides energy reservoirs.
Natural astaxanthin has a unique molecular structure that makes it literally hundreds of times stronger than any other antioxidant molecule. For this reason, astaxanthin is often called “The King of Antioxidants”.
Carnipure’s L-Carnitine-L-Tartrate in ASTASHINE Silver
Carnipure’s L- Carnitine-L-Tartrate is high-quality special grade L-carnitine manufactured by Lonza, Switzerland. It is a salt of 68% L- Carnitine and 32% tartaric acid, which is a highest L-Carnitine concentration of any commercially available hygroscopic salt form. L- Carnitine-L-Tartrate in ASTASHINE Silver is heat and pH stable.
L-Carnitine is a vitamin-like nutrient related to vitamins of B group. L-Carnitine is a physiological substance, essential for energy production and for fat metabolism. L-Carnitine can be synthesized in the human liver and kidney, but the insufficient amount may be produced in infants, in adolescents and in adults under certain physiological conditions.
L-Carnitine is supplied to the human body via both food intake and endogenous synthesis (we can make it ourselves in our bodies). Dietary sources of L-Carnitine are confined mainly to foods of animal origin, particularly red meat (this obviously has important implication for vegetarians) and dietary L-Carnitine is absorbed in the small intestine. Endogenous synthesis requires six other nutrients, including amino acids, vitamins and iron .L-Carnitine synthesis takes place primarily in the liver and kidney. The skeletal muscle and the heart, which depend upon fat breakdown for energy, are highly dependent on L-Carnitine transport from the site of synthesis.
