Main Indications: •Cardiovascular health •Antioxidant •Eye function •Sports nutrition What is Astaxanthin? Astaxanthin is a member of the xanthophyll subcategory of carotenoids – organic pigments that occur mainly in plants. Astaxanthin is found in abundance in marine environments, particularly among algae, and the pink and red colour of salmon, shrimp and lobster is attributable to the astaxanthin-rich diets of these animals. Health Benefits Astaxanthin is famous as a powerful antioxidant, and rightly so. However, studies have also shown that it can reduce eye fatigue related to high screen time, preserve eye structure and function, improve sports performance, and contribute to heart health in various ways including maintaining healthy blood sugar and blood pressure. Astaxanthin can also be used orally and topically for skin health. The newest realm of research on astaxanthin involves dementia, and several human studies have already found that astaxanthin reduces certain markers of dementia. A Unique and Powerful Antioxidant Astaxanthin exerts all of the aforementioned benefits through the fundamental premise of protecting the cell membrane from lipid peroxidation, and in this role it is 550 times more effective than Vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol). It is also 40 times more potent than beta-carotene in quenching singlet oxygen free radicals, and has been shown to have synergistic effects with lycopene, lipoic acid, resveratrol, ascorbic acid, ginseng, garlic, gingko biloba and tocotrienols, among others. Astaxanthin is clearly an antioxidant whose time has come.
