Ever since free radicals were first discovered, the race to find effective antioxidants began. It didn’t take long for scientists to realize that protecting the body against free radical damage can significantly slow the aging process and prevent the onset of many age related disease. A little known carotenoid known as astaxanthin is now believed to be, hands down, the most beneficial antioxidant nature has to offer. It’s one of the few supplements that virtually everyone can dramatically benefit from!
The combination of astaxanthin high-potency antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties allow it to address a vast array of health concerns, including arthritis, heart disease, cancer, muscle damage, and sun exposure. As an antioxidant, astaxanthin can neutralize or quench free radicals and stop them from causing damage that could eventually lead to accelerated aging.
Astaxanthin is a carotenoid, related to beta-carotene, but has a unique structure and works in unique ways. For one, it does not become a pro-oxidant once it neutralizes a free radical. Instead, it continues to work to improve blood flow, protect neurons in the CNS from free radical damage, and increase both lipid metabolism and energy protection.
