Asta-what? Yea, but its getting more popular now that Dr. Oz talked about it. Actually, it is widely regarded as one of the most functional antioxidants from food.
Salmon stores astaxanthin in the meat and that is responsible for the red-pink color of salmon. In humans, after we digest the salmon, the astaxanthin preserves the entire body against free radicals and other stresses of life.
