How it works

AstaReal® Astaxanthin is found in the muscles framing the lens at the front of the eye, called ciliary muscles. These muscles can stay contracted and become fatigued after long periods of digital screen use (ex. smartphones, computers). AstaReal® Astaxanthin helps support endurance and recovery of the ciliary muscles of the eye, promoting focusing function and recovery from eye strain and eye fatigue.

In several studies, AstaReal® Astaxanthin helped improve ocular antioxidant capacity and reduced a marker of inflammation in the eye after cataract surgery. Other studies showed that AstaReal® Astaxanthin supported nourishing blood flow at the back of the eye.

Overall, AstaReal® Astaxanthin helps to support healthy eyes by providing antioxidant support, promoting dynamic focus, near focus, and comfort during prolonged use of digital devices.
