There's a new antioxidant in town, and its name is astaxanthin. (Try saying that 10 times fast.) OK, so astaxanthin has actually been around practically since the dawn of time, but it's still my new favorite. And I bet it's about to become one of yours, too.
We all know that antioxidants are important: They help protect the body from highly reactive molecules called free radicals that can cause oxidative stress when left unchecked.
Natural astaxanthin is unique among antioxidants because of the shape of its molecule. Simply stated, astaxanthin is both water- and fat-soluble, which allows it to protect the entire cell from damage — not just part of it. This molecular structure enables it to provide superior support and protection from oxidative damage. Plus, unlike some antioxidants, astaxanthin never becomes pro-oxidant in the body so it won't cause harmful oxidation.
Over 200 scientific studies demonstrate that this supercharged antioxidant is packed with a variety of health benefits. Here are just a few conditions it can help out with:
