Astaxanthin is one of the few antioxidants that can travel throughout our bodies and provide protection to cells against damaging forces like free radicals.
Free radicals occur in the body naturally through metabolic processes like converting food to energy, immune responses, as well as factors such as exposure to air pollution, eating processed foods and consuming alcohol. They cause damage to cell membranes and cell structures (including DNA) which drives disease and accelerates ageing.
As an antioxidant, astaxanthin helps reduce free radical damage to body cells, and since it’s fat and water soluble, can uniquely span across the entire membrane to provide protection. Considerable research has shown that astaxanthin can positively impact health, wellness and physical recovery.
