Dear NaturalNews readers:

As a service to you, I have negotiated substantial discounts on astaxanthin supplements from the top two suppliers in the world: Mera Pharmaceuticals and Cyanotech. Use these discounts codes, shown below, to save a bundle when ordering astaxanthin supplements. (They're typically not available in health food stores yet, because the great news about astaxanthin isn't widely known. It's still a bit of a secret in the natural health community.)

What is astaxanthin? I call it "Vitamin X," and it's a supercharged antioxidant derived from microalgae. It's 500 times stronger than Vitamin E and crosses the blood/brain barrier, meaning it offers powerful oxidative protection for the nervous system (eyes, brain, nerve tissues, etc.) I used astaxanthin as part of my strategy for achieving a whopping 89,000 score on the Pharmanex nutrition scanner!

I'm working on an entire report on astaxanthin where I'll go into detail about this miraculous substances. But the short version is as follows:

  • Virtually eliminates arthritis pain for many people
  • Eases or eliminates chronic back pain
  • Accelerates muscle healing for strength trainers, weekend warriors, and people who get sore easily (I use it following my strenuous gymnastics workouts, and my soreness recovery time has been cut in half)
  • Functions as an internal sunscreen to enhance your tolerance of sun exposure
  • Offers powerful protection for the eyes and prevents macular degeneration
  • Prevents heart disease due to oxidative damage
  • Boosts immune system function
  • Reduces pain from carpal tunnel syndrome and repetitive motion injuries
  • Protects the nervous system from degenerative diseases like Alzheimer's Disease
  • Multiplies the effects of vitamin E and vitamin C in your body
  • Enhances athletic performance: both strength and endurance
  • Lowers LDL cholesterol
... and much more. I don't have time to give you all the details here just yet. NOTE: I have no financial relationship with this product or the companies producing it. I don't earn a dime from your purchase here. In fact, feel free to buy it anywhere you like. Just get some. This is an amazing supplement and I strongly recommend it for people who wish to be healthy and free of pain.

The Sources:

Note: The prices below are the same per gram of the active ingredient. Even though one company looks like it's offering a greater discount, these products are the exact same price when you calculate the milligrams of astaxanthin you're actually buying per dollar. Both companies are excellent sources. They both have outstanding customer service, quality control and quality products. I encourage you to check them both out and go with the one you like best.

Mera Pharmaceuticals

Corp Site: www.AstaFactor.com
Order site: Click here
Recommended product: AstaFactor Sports Formula

Coupon code: well1
(50% discount)


Corp Site: www.Cyanotech.com
Order site: Click here
Recommended product: BioAstin

Code: TruthPublishing
(35% discount)
(enter "TruthPublishing" in the order comments field to get your discount, which won't show in the shopping cart but will be deducted from your order nevertheless)

Remember, both companies are offering the same price per milligram of astaxanthin after the discounts. So 50% off at Mera Pharmaceuticals gives you the same effective price as 35% off at Cyanotech. It's just that Mera had a higher price to begin with, before the discounts.

One more thing: Cyanotech is the same company that produces the Hawaiian spirulina I've been recommending for quite some time. And just in case you were wondering, Mera Pharmaceuticals doesn't manufacture prescription drugs. The "pharmaceuticals" part of their name refers to the classic use of the prefix "pharma" which means "from plants." Technically, the word, "pharmaceuticals" means "medicine from plants," but it has become distorted over time and now has a negative connotation among those in the natural health community.

Once you're taking astaxanthin, please email us at NaturalNews and tell us how it's helping you! (Contact emails found at right.)

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose descendents include Africans and American Indians. He self-identifies as being of American Indian heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
