AstaMatrix® is a sustainably sourced plant-based Omega-3 supplement sourced from microalgae. This formula not only provides 500mg of Omega-3 eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) but provides antioxidant protection through the addition of astaxanthin and delta-tocotrienol. Further, AstaMatrix® contains 150mg of dietary phospholipids sourced from sunflower lecithin, which support brain health and act as a lipid delivery system for the Omega-3’s in the formula. Through a process referred to as nutrient synergy, these and the other complementary nutrients in AstaMatrix® work together to ensure you are getting a supplement with the highest potency and bioavailability we can offer.
Top 7 Reasons to take AstaMatrix® Everyday
- You Forgot to Eat your Fish….Again. Due to a number of factors, those of us who follow a Western Diet are just not consuming enough fatty fish, which are the number one dietary source of essential Omega-3’s. This has caused a large “nutrient gap” between the amount of Omega-3’s your body needs to function optimally and what it's actually getting. Not to worry, AstaMatrix® contains 500mg of EPA and DHA, so your Omega-3 needs are covered!
- You Want your Omega-3’s Without Losing your “Veganity”. While consuming things like chia and flax seeds by the bucket load can provide your body with alpha-linolenic acid (the precursor of EPA and DHA), only a small fraction of ALA ever gets converted to EPA and DHA. Fear not vegan friends, AstaMatrix® is 100% plant-based and loaded with your daily dose of EPA and DHA. This is because the Omega-3’s in the formula are sourced from microalgae, the original source of Omega-3 EPA and DHA!
- You Exercise. AstaMatrix® contains 4mg of Astaxanthin, which is one of the most powerful antioxidants on earth. Scientific evidence has uncovered that taking Astaxanthin gives individuals like you an athletic edge, as it supports better endurance, enhanced energy and strength while you exercise 1 ,2 . So, go for a run that’s a little farther and pump that iron a little harder, you little athlete, you.
- You Enjoy having a Sharp Mind. Phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylethanolamine, and sphingomyelin, oh my! These are just some of the many phospholipids that help make up the cell membranes of your brain cells. Without healthy neuronal cell membranes, your memory won’t function as well as it could, and your cognitive abilities might start to fade. Well, don’t give that another thought, because AstaMatrix® contains 150mg of phospholipids sourced from sunflower lecithin. These phospholipids not only support brain health, but they also help deliver the Omega-3’s to you in their most absorbable form.
- You Want More for Less. You could spend a lot of extra money and take separate Omega-3, antioxidant and brain health supplements, but why would you when AstaMatrix® gives you all three of these in one specialized formula? AstaMatrix’s® unique combination of nutrients results in a supplement that has superior levels of absorbency and potency compared to what individualized supplements can offer you. BioScience Formulators knows that nutrients work better together so every ingredient in AstaMatrix® works synergistically with the others to maximize the health benefits you can attain from taking it!
- You’re a Mover and a Shaker. Science has uncovered that chronic inflammation is a major cause of the joint degeneration associated with arthritic conditions. When your joints feel irritated, stiff and swollen, this can keep you from getting your boogie on. However, the power of Omega-3 EPA and DHA alone or in combination with Astaxanthin has been found to reduce joint pain, morning stiffness and the overall number of painful joints in people just like you! 3 So keep moving and shaking without worrying about your joint health.
- You Want to Be Forever Young. You might spend a lot of money on topical lotions and potions in order to combat aging, but did you know you can fight aging from the inside out?

But all hope is not lost, Astaxanthin can not only combat UV rays and free radicals at the outer most layer of your skin, but helps skin maintain its natural barrier, keeping it soft, smooth, and hydrated.
