Astaxanthin is one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants, with a multitude of potent effects. Our bodies rely on antioxidants to relieve oxidative stress and help heal damaged cellular structures. Put simply, antioxidants fight the process of oxidation and free-radical induced oxidative stress, both of which lead to cellular breakdown over time. Skin, muscles, ligaments, tendons, eyes, internal organs, the cardiovascular system and nervous system are all receptive to astaxanthin, making it uniquely active among antioxidants.
The purest, natural source of astaxanthin is microalgae, primary producers of food for other organisms and animals, and a plant-based source of nutrients at the very bottom of the food chain. KeyNatura uses the freshwater micro algae Haematococcus Pluvialis, also rich in omega-3, to culture and harvest high-active astaxanthin. Unlike synthetic options made from petrochemicals, our astaxanthin is natural, sustainably produced and suitable for use even by those following a vegan diet.
Angelica archangelica is one of Iceland’s most cherished medicinal herbs. It was one of the few plants in Iceland that survived the last ice age and has been used as a herbal medicine from the country’s settlement, more than 1100 years ago.
The Angelica products of SagaNatura are the fruit of more than 20 years of research and development, originating at the Science Institute of the University of Iceland. The plant contains many bioactive compounds, of which furanocoumarins and essential oils are the most characteristic.
The products are based primarily on the seeds and leaves. Various studies indicate that the seed can be beneficial for memory and the leaves have been used in Iceland for more than a decade to treat cold symptoms and to minimize bathroom trips for persons with overactive bladder.
