Astaxanthin is a naturally occurring pigment found in microalgae often referred to as the “king of carotenoids” and has many health benefits.*
- Enhances Skin Elasticity, Moisture, Texture, and Tone*
- Helps Protect Eyes and Skin from UV Rays*
- Helps Reduce Oxidative Stress in Our Bodies*
- Reduces Inflammation, which Promotes Joint Health
Astaxanthin is a potent fat-soluble antioxidant from red marine microalgae that protects cell membranes from free radical damage. Astaxanthin is one of the most potent antioxidants found in the carotene or xanthophyll family. Astaxanthin gives wild salmon and shrimp their color because they consume red algae for food. The 6 mg of Astaxanthin in each softgel is equivalent to the Astaxanthin in two pounds of Atlantic salmon.
Antioxidants are molecules that neutralize free radicals, different molecules which can damage living cells. It has been shown that oxidative stress contributes to the way our body ages.* Free radicals result from oxidation, a natural process which occurs when we digest food, exercise, or simply breathe in and out. Living in environments with pollution, radiation, cigarette smoke and herbicides also increases free radical production. The more free radicals in the body, the more opportunity there is for illness and premature aging to occur.
Support of Healthy Skin Appearance
Astaxanthin supports healthy skin texture, elasticity, hydration and protects against water loss.* Astaxanthin may improve the appearance of wrinkles and age spots to contribute to the appearance of healthy-looking skin.* By reducing inflammation, astaxanthin can also suppress excess redness and swelling.* Additionally, astaxanthin reduces rough skin and oiliness in both men and women and supports healthy collagen fiber levels.*
Astaxanthin and Vision Health
Astaxanthin crosses into eye tissue where it offers protection from light-induced damage. It protects the nerve cells in the eye and preserves healthy eye function.*
Astaxanthin and Joint Health
Astaxanthin has been studied in a variety of inflammatory reactions and it supports healthy immune function, joint, brain, vision and cardiovascular health.* It supports healthy joint cartilage thickness by lowering levels of inflammatory cytokines which attack cartilage in joints.*
