Astaxanthin is classified as a xanthophyll, which is a carotenoid pigment. It is found in fish and algae and contributes to the natural color in many marine animals such as salmon and shrimp. Astaxanthin is a potent antioxidant due to its unique molecular structure. It has broad health implications and unlike other antioxidants, such as beta carotene, zeaxanthin, vitamin E, C, D and selenium, astaxanthin never becomes pro-oxidant in the body.
According to scientific studies it helps to the following issues:
1. It can help relieve pain and inflammation
2. It can help fight fatigue
3. It supports eye health
4. It cleans up your cells
5. Helps in skin wellbeing in many ways.
The scientific studies regarding the benefits of astaxanthin for skin are clear and consistent. They show excellent results for helping with skin moisture levels, smoothness, elasticity, fine wrinkles, and spots or freckles. It's great also during summer and suntanning-season because it reduces damage caused by ultraviolet radiation from the sun. Think of it as an internal sunscreen. Also, in case you get a sunburn, which causes inflammation, astaxanthin penetrates the skin cells and reduces UVA damage.
SUGGESTED USE: As a dietary supplement for adults, take one (1) softgel twice daily, preferably with meals, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
