Did you know that flamingo chicks are born grey? They develop their beautiful pink color from the astaxanthin in the shells of the shrimp and crab they eat. It’s a common myth that farmed salmon is “dyed”, when in fact salmon are naturally grey as well and also get their pleasing pink color from the food they eat - wild salmon eat crabs and shrimp, and farmed salmon have astaxanthin added to their feed. Astaxanthin is a powerful beneficial antioxidant that has been linked to healthier skin, endurance, heart health, fight joint pain, fertility, and may even have a future in cancer treatment! If you don’t want to get your astaxanthin the delicious natural way from eating trout or salmon, you can buy capsules of it at Whole Foods!
