Symposium Session: Dive Into the Sea-Based Nutrient With Whole Body Benefits

This is not a webinar or course for purchase - this is a module for credit claiming for our 2022 Spring Symposium attendees and cannot be purchased or taken by non-attendees. These sessions are exclusive to our Symposium; however, the topics may be revisited in the future in the form of a webinar or self-study course.

Nutritionists use the food color wheel to encourage consumption of a diverse set of plant-based nutrients, including carotenoids. We get 90% of all carotenoids in our diet from fruits and vegetables, but astaxanthin is missing from this phytonutrient rainbow because it is primarily found in red-colored seafoods. While the best natural source of astaxanthin in our diet is wild salmon, and you would have to consume 8 fillets of wild king salmon daily to get the clinically-validated benefits of this powerful free radical scavenger.

On Wednesday, May 25, 2022, from 7:45 – 9 a.m. ET, join speakers DJ Blatner, RDN, CSSD and Dr. Karen Hecht, Ph.D., as they dive into the clinically proven, whole-body benefits of a branded astaxanthin ingredient, like AstaReal® Astaxanthin, and help you build confidence in recommending astaxanthin supplements in appropriate dosages to clients, by learning more about the strict quality standards and third-party certifications of a trusted brand, like NOW®.
