The Natural “Shield” That Protects You From The Free Radicals That Accelerate Aging
Discover the Antioxidant With a Unique Molecular Structure That Makes it
6000x More Potent Than Vitamin C and 800x More Potent Than CoQ10!
Whether you know it or not, and regardless of how healthy you may be, there is something inside your body right now called free radicals that are working hard to damage your cells and your health.
In fact, the oxidative stress and inflammation created by free radicals is one of the most significant factors that perpetuates the array of health issues that bring people into my clinics.
That’s because these free radicals literally accelerate the aging process, preventing you from feeling your best now, and setting you up for health challenges later in life.
What is shocking to me, is that most people are doing virtually nothing to neutralize the daily cellular damage caused by free radicals, while others are taking only “baby-steps” or half measures.
So consider today your intake visit with me, just like with a patient at my clinic.
Hello, I'm Dr. Kevin Passero. Please keep reading because I’m going to teach you how to take advantage of the world’s most powerful antioxidant to create a natural “shield” for your body that can protect it from the damaging free radicals and oxidative stress that may be the culprit behind your nagging health issues.
The benefits of shielding your body using this simple antioxidant solution will give you:
& Mental Clarity
with Improved Flexibility

Why Healthy Aging Doesn’t Happen by Itself
First, a little more about oxidative stress and how your fight against this invisible threat can be the deciding factor between whether you age faster than expected or age well—looking great and feeling youthful as the years go by.
Oxidative stress is caused by free radicals—unstable molecules that form naturally as by-products of everyday metabolic functions. At normal low levels, a healthy diet in conjunction with your body’s natural “built-in” antioxidant defenses can neutralize them.
Unfortunately, in these modern times, your body is swamped with more free radicals than it can effectively defend against. Simply put, your body wasn’t designed for the modern-day threats it faces on a daily basis.
Pollution, processed foods, excessive sugar intake, pesticide exposure, pharmaceutical drugs and chemicals from all types of sources lead to excessive free radicals that can overwhelm your natural defenses.
That’s when oxidative stress gets the upper hand—and aging accelerates.
Can You Get All the Antioxidants You Need From Food Alone?
Food is a very important source of antioxidants, which is why I always advocate that my patients eat a diet that is abundant in nutrient-dense whole foods and very low in processed junk foods.
I know this is sometimes easier said than done.
While we may all strive to consume a healthy diet, it’s exceedingly difficult to eat the optimal 8-10 servings of fruits and vegetables per day needed to keep your body loaded with antioxidants.
For this reason, I recommend that all of my patients supplement their diet with nature’s most powerful antioxidants.
If You’re Going to Make Sure
You Are Getting Enough of One Single Antioxidant... This Should Be It
Earlier I called this antioxidant the most powerful on earth and I don’t throw that phrase around lightly, and you’re about to learn why.
The antioxidant I’m talking about is a unique carotenoid called Astaxanthin and its sheer potency is unlike any other antioxidant yet discovered.
For example, many people reach for Vitamin C when they are feeling under the weather. However, tests have shown Astaxanthin to be up to 6,000 times stronger!*
What’s more, it outperformed other famous antioxidants as well—surpassing “superstars” like CoQ10, Beta-Carotene and Vitamin E with up to 800 times more free radical scavenging ability.*
And this potency is just one of Astaxanthin’s advantages. In fact, I like to tell my patients that Astaxanthin has three “superpowers” that make it the one antioxidant you want to make sure you’re getting enough of.
Unfortunately, it’s almost impossible to get the doses of Astaxanthin that you need from your regular diet, so make sure to keep reading to learn my best strategies for boosting your natural levels.
Astaxanthin’s Three “Superpowers” Revealed
First is the way Astaxanthin protects the cell membrane.
As you can imagine, maintaining cell membrane integrity is critical for cellular health and function, and no antioxidant does it better than Astaxanthin.
That’s because, according to a 2019 report by doctors writing in Oxidative Medicine and Cellular Longevity,* it penetrates the bilayer phospholipid membrane of every cell in your body and uniquely protects it from the inside out.
In other words, Astaxanthin does the work of multiple antioxidants to protect the full cell membrane—which is your first line of defense against free radical attacks. And once inside the cell its second superpower kicks in…
It Protects and Replenishes Cell Mitochondria and This Is Crucial to Aging Well
Mitochondria are the “power plants” inside every cell. They produce the energy that fuels everything you do.
And now scientists say…it’s where aging begins.
Mitochondrial breakdown caused by oxidative stress is now considered “the main mediator of the aging process and subsequent age-related diseases.”*
Thankfully, Astaxanthin targets mitochondria to combat this breakdown.
A study from Japan confirms that Astaxanthin not only protects mitochondria from oxidative stress but is also “effective in improving mitochondrial function.”*
That’s great news for those who want to fight back against aging and for those who want to enjoy more energy every day.
Astaxanthin’s third “superpower” will be most important to you if your biggest concern is staying mentally sharp.
It’s One of the Few Antioxidants
the Blood–Brain Barrier to Support Your Brain
The blood-brain barrier is a unique layer of cells in your brain’s blood vessels that determines what can and what can’t get through.
However, it turns out that Astaxanthin is one of the few antioxidants that gets the “green light.” Most antioxidants don’t even come close to reaching brain cells!
The brain has some of the highest levels of oxidative stress in the body. That’s why this critical feature of Astaxanthin gives it a distinct advantage.
In fact, Astaxanthin is perhaps the most effective natural substance on earth in terms of its ability to neutralize the free radicals that trigger the oxidative stress linked with age-related cognitive decline.
And don’t just take my word for it.
Neurosurgeons writing in GeroScience cite over 90 studies to confirm Astaxanthin as “a useful compound in delaying or ameliorating cognitive impairment associated with normal aging.”*
Even more impressive, they note how it provides “neuroprotection against normal aging and neurodegeneration by promoting neurogenesis”—your own ability to produce new brain cells!
And this kind of expert medical confirmation of Astaxanthin’s power is happening all over the world.
Medical Specialists in So Many Fields Test Astaxanthin…and Come Away Impressed
Like the neurosurgeons, doctors in other fields have also been won over by Astaxanthin’s amazing benefits:
✔ Aging Specialists at the acclaimed Juntendo University School of Medicine report how it helped older adults with age-related forgetfulness improve their cognitive scores significantly after taking 12 mg daily for 12 weeks.*
✔ Blood Sugar Specialists at Japan’s highly-regarded Kamiichi General Hospital showed how 12 mg of Astaxanthin taken daily helped improve glucose metabolism.*
✔ Cardiovascular Experts determined that 12 mg of Astaxanthin taken daily resulted in reduced triglycerides and increased “good” HDL cholesterol in a 12-week hospital study.*
✔ Gastroenterologists in 2020 noted how “Astaxanthin has important preventive and therapeutic effects” for liver health in a 2020 study, thanks to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory abilities.*
✔ Ophthalmologists in Italy concluded: “Preclinical and clinical evidences support the potential use of Astaxanthin in the prevention and treatment” of age-related vision concerns.*
✔ Dermatologists in Europe confirmed its ability to protect skin from dangerous UV radiation and how it “inhibits collagenases, MMP activity, inflammatory mediators, and ROS induction."*
As a forward-thinking physician, it’s great to see mainstream medical experts and natural health advocates agree on this safe, effective phytonutrient.
Astaxanthin Is a Rising Star in Anti-Aging Medicine
I hope I have convinced you that Astaxanthin is very special and something you need in order to age with vigor and resilience.
However, please just don’t go and buy the first Astaxanthin supplement you see online before you read my buyer’s guide below.
Before I get into the best type of Astaxanthin to take, here’s a little more about its scientifically proven benefits:
● Physical and Mental Energy: In a randomized controlled trial, Astaxanthin reduced mental and physical fatigue and improved mood balance and cognitive skills for those taking 12 mg daily for 8 weeks.*
● Immune Health: An 8-week study of those taking 8 mg daily found that Astaxanthin reduced key biomarkers of oxidative stress and inflammation and enhanced immune response.*
● Joint Health: Comfort, range of motion, and activity levels all rose significantly for participants taking an Astaxanthin formula in an 8-week, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial.*
● Strength and Endurance: In a 12-week University of Washington study, an Astaxanthin formula helped improve muscle strength, endurance and mobility among the healthy elderly.*
The Astaxanthin Buyer’s Guide I Give to My Patients
As I mentioned earlier, it’s nearly impossible to get the Astaxanthin levels you need daily from food alone. That’s why I advise my patients to take an Astaxanthin supplement which follows these simple guidelines:
1) The Right Dose Matters: The vast majority of Astaxanthin on the market provides only 2 mg to 4 mg. This isn’t enough. The clinical research shows that to get a broad array of health benefits astaxanthin can provide, you should take a triple-strength 12 mg daily dose.
2) Only Take a Softgel: The fat-soluble properties of Astaxanthin make it best absorbed when taken in an oil base, which is only possible with softgels. Avoid any Astaxanthin supplement that is in capsule or powder form.
3) Avoid Synthetic Astaxanthin: Up to 95% of the Astaxanthin on the market is synthetic and it has significantly weaker antioxidant properties. Only take a supplement that contains 100% natural Astaxanthin.
When My Patients Had a Hard Time Finding a Reliably Good Astaxanthin Supplement, I Decided to Formulate My Own
Too many of my patients were having a hard time finding naturally sourced Astaxanthin in a 12 mg softgel.
And when they could, they found it absurdly expensive.
That’s when I decided it was time to formulate my own Astaxanthin supplement that would be of the highest quality, yet affordable.
This is possible because in addition to running my Washington, D.C. area clinics, I also serve as Chief Science Officer for a company called Durable™.
I call my formula Durable SHIELD™ and every softgel provides a full 12 mg dose of the finest, highest quality, naturally sourced Astaxanthin.
The patented form of Astaxanthin that I hand-selected is grown in a pristine environment in Chile and extracted in the U.S. naturally without harsh solvents or harmful chemicals used by so many other companies.
And what makes Durable SHIELD truly superior to any other Astaxanthin supplement on the market is that it includes a second super-antioxidant I also recommend to my patients: Pomanox® Pomegranate Extract.
Made from pomegranate grown in Spain’s nutrient-rich soil, Pomanox is an extremely pure, whole-fruit extract concentrated with up to 30% punicalagins, the unique polyphenols found in pomegranates that make them a prized health food.
Like Astaxanthin, Pomegranate Extract Provides Proven Anti-Aging Benefits
Human clinical trials show that the patented Pomanox Pomegranate Extract in Durable SHIELD can decrease powerful pro-inflammatory compounds in the blood and increase anti-inflammatory compounds.*
In addition, Pomanox was shown to decrease levels of oxidative stress in the blood and even lowered markers related to oxidative-induced DNA damage…in just 30 days!!**
New research also shows how polyphenols from plants like pomegranate can help keep joints healthy. They have a superior ability to neutralize oxidative stress in joints, cartilage and connective tissue.**
Additional studies show that pomegranate specifically helped improve comfort and function among participants with stiff and achy joints.**
That’s why when formulating Durable SHIELD, there was no question in my mind that this amazing pomegranate extract would be the perfect complement to our triple-strength, 12 mg dose of natural Astaxanthin.
The end result is the strongest body-wide antioxidant formula ever created.
Five Reasons Why Durable SHIELD Should be Part of Your Anti-Aging Regimen
1) 12 mg of Astaxanthin: You get triple the dose of most supplements to provide the best shield possible against harmful free radicals and oxidative stress.
2) 100% Natural and Pure: It is formulated using superior, natural Astaxanthin that is grown and extracted without chemicals or solvents.
3) Enhanced with Pomegranate: It also features a clinically proven 267 mg dose of Pomanox—a premium-grade pomegranate extract shown to reduce inflammation and key markers of oxidative stress.
4) Quality You Can Trust: This state-of-the-art formula is produced here in the U.S. in an FDA-regulated facility for unparalleled quality.
5) Unbeatable One Year Guarantee: If Durable SHIELD isn’t meeting your expectations for any reason, you have 12 months to get a 100% refund with free return shipping.
Durable SHIELD Will Help You Feel Your Best and Age Your Best
Durable SHIELD’s triple-strength 12 mg dose of natural Astaxanthin alone would make it an incredibly beneficial supplement for anyone trying to fight back against aging. But in addition, it also features a powerful dose of Pomanox pomegranate extract.
With two of the most potent, well-studied antioxidants for body-wide protection from oxidative damage linked with so many age-related complaints, Durable SHIELD lives up to its name and gives you the “firepower” you need to fight back against aging.
Plus, Durable SHIELD is priced as low as $29 per bottle which is less expensive than many inferior Astaxanthin supplements that aren’t enhanced with a powerful pomegranate extract.
Just One Tiny Softgel Per Day Can Significantly Change Your Quality of Life
The medical world has embraced the natural, health-enhancing benefits of both Astaxanthin and Pomegranate…and I’ve shown you just some of the clinical trials that document the amazing power of both.
That’s why I’m convinced that Durable SHIELD will help you…
✔ Keep your memory and cognitive skills at their best
✔ Maintain healthy blood sugar and cardiovascular health
✔ Enjoy comfortable joints that stay strong and flexible
✔ Keep your vision clear so you don’t miss a single thing
✔ Stay energized, motivated and happy to greet each new day
✔ Keep your skin soft, youthful with fewer fine lines and wrinkles
I invite you to put Durable SHIELD to the test and see the difference it makes in your life. And please don’t forget that Durable SHIELD comes with a one year “any reason” guarantee that includes free return shipping.
