Astaxanthin is a naturally-occurring compound found in salmon, lobster, crab, shrimp, and algae and a strong natural antioxidant far surpassing vitamin C, CoQ10, green tea catechins and alpha-lipoic acid combined. What's more, unlike these other antioxidants, once in the body, it never converts into a pro-oxidant.
This one compound can help with cardiovascular health in a number of ways. It can help take high LDL (or bad cholesterol) levels and low HDL (or good cholesterol) levels and restore them to more normal, healthy levels. Likewise, it can help regulate levels of blood lipids like adiponectin and return blood pressure levels to within the normal range. It can also improve circulation and blood flow and lower oxidative stress in the blood. It can even help to repair damage to the heart and blood vessels caused by high blood pressure, heart failure, or a heart attack.
Anti-inflammatory properties help make this a powerful pain reliever as well. What's more, it blocks certain chemicals in the body that trigger the pain response in the brain. And unlike prescription analgesics, it's non-addictive and doesn't cause heartburn or bleeding in the GI tract.
In addition to relieving pain in joints, muscles, and nerves, it also helps muscles and joints recover from exertion, thereby preventing fatigue. It can even improve endurance, strength, and energy levels.
Astaxanthin can also help your skin stay young and healthy looking and feeling. It reduces the damage solar ultraviolet radiation can cause, which, in turn, helps to improve skin elasticity, smoothness, and moisture levels. It also helps to reduce freckles, spots, and fine wrinkles. Combine oral and topical use for maximum skin benefits.
By helping to stimulate blood flow, lower blood pressure, relax blood vessels and reduce oxidative stress, this powerful substance can help to prevent stroke and reduce brain damage from a stroke. It also reduces toxicity in the nerves and nervous system and supports the health of the eyes, including benefitting those with eye strain and eye fatigue, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and poor vision.
Beyond all these benefits for heart, joint, nerve, and skin health, it also helps to:
