Astaxanthin To Fight Free Radicals

Mar 15, 2017

A carotenoid responsible for the pink or red colors of certain marine life. Named as “king of the carotenoids”, astaxanthin is believed to be more powerful than the other carotenoids, and also has many health benefits that range from improving bodily performance to protection from ailments. Sources include crabs, lobster, seabream, salmon, shrimp, and trout. Freshly-caught sources of astaxanthin are a lot better than farm-raised ones as their diet of microalgae contain the most pure form of the antioxidant.

Astaxanthin improves blood flow and reduces oxidative stress in overweight people and smokers.

Intake of the antioxidant, along with topical application, works wonders for the skin by maintaining skin moisture, minimizing age spots, and smoothing wrinkles.

The antioxidant acts as an effective anti-inflammatory and pain reliever similar to prescription analgesics, sans the side-effects. Inflammatory compounds that result in many chronic diseases are reduced as well.

Astaxanthin is theorized to be responsible for the salmon’s powerful ability to swim upstream. For human beings this gives a boost in endurance and strength, better muscle recovery, and enhanced energy levels.

Eye strain, macular degeneration, and poor eyesight are alleviated with regular intake of astaxanthin.

Every cell of the human body is protected by astaxathin’s molecular lipophilic and hydrophilic attributes.
