Healthier, More Natural Food

Astaxanthin, a main antioxidant in wild salmon that promotes pigmentation, can exist in various isomeric forms. In Panaferd®-AX, the isomeric form of astaxanthin is identical to that found in wild salmon. This isomeric form of astaxanthin can be detected in the flesh of your fish and is a key marker of the final product’s natural origins.
