Astaxanthin is a potent antioxidant that helps reduce cellular damage caused by free radicals. It has both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that help the body function better and can also contribute towards living a longer, healthier life.
Astaxanthin is, like beta carotene, a carotenoid. Beta carotene is probably the best known of all the carotenoids as it the best way to fulfil your body's Vitamin A needs. Astaxanthin has many powerful health benefits beyond many other carotenoids including: eye health, prevention of brain related degenerations (such as dementia) and organ and skin health. It has up to 550 times the antioxidant activity of Vitamin E, 10 times that of beat carotene and surpasses Vitamin C as well.
What are its health benefits?
Natural Astaxanthin has many powerful nutritional and health benefits:
- Crosses the blood-retinal barrier and brings antioxidant and anti-inflammatory protection to the eyes, organs and skin
- Works effectively as a neuroprotectant – this helps prevent a range of brain-related conditions including dementia and age-related forgetfulness
- Spans cell membranes and bonds with muscle tissues to increase physical strength and endurance
- Works as a super powerful antioxidant and eliminates free radicals
550 times more powerful than Vitamin E
Hawaiian Natural Astaxanthins benefits derive from its superior antioxidant activity and from its ability to fight free radical damage and combat ongoing oxidative stress and can have up to 550 times the antioxidant activity of vitamin E, 10 times the antioxidant activity of beta-carotene and surpasses many of the antioxidant benefits of Vitamin C and other carotenoids.
How Does It Work?
Astaxanthin can be found in plants and animals all over the world. It is most prevalent in algae and phytoplankton and is also present in a limited number of fungi and bacteria. As a base part of the food chain, Astaxanthin is therefore present in many life forms including sea creatures, birds, mammals and humans.
It is a red pigment that is very powerful, acting as a kind of ‘force field’ that prevents long term damage to algae in cases where water or food is scarce or extreme weather conditions (heat, light or cold) are present and the greenness of the algae has ‘dried up’. The red pigmentation occurs in response to the stress and is effectively a survival mechanism.
Natural Astaxanthin can deliver these same powerful antioxidant, strength and protective properties to humans and this is why it is considered a superfood. There is a synthetic Astaxanthin produced by some chemical companies. We do not recommend or endorse the use of the synthetic version of this product.
