Astaxanthin, derived from the microscopic green algae species called Haematococcus pluvialis, is the most concentrated natural source of astaxanthin in the world. Because astaxanthin is an oxygenated carotenoid, it has superior antioxidant capabilities. It serves as an antioxidant by either scavenging free radicals or quenching singlet oxygen.  It helps reduce a natural process in your body called oxidation. The oxidation process may play a role in many diseases and changes such as:

  • Aging
  • Cancer
  • Heart disease
  • Eye diseases like cataracts and macular degeneration
  • Alzheimer's disease
  • Parkinson's disease
Astaxanthin can also reduce inflammation. It might be useful as a treatment for problems that involve inflammation.  Laboratory research has found that an extract from algae that makes astaxanthin slowed the growth of breast and skin cancer cells, and may be helpful in preventing plaque buildup in arteries in the heart.  By reducing oxidation in the brain, it may protect against Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases.
 

Health Benefits

As a member of the carotenoid family, astaxanthin is a fat-soluble nutrient with a unique molecular structure that gives it superior antioxidant capabilities and anti-inflammatory and immune-regulating properties. Because of its small molecular weight, natural astaxanthin works directly at the site of muscle tissue with beneficial effects, particularly for athletes and very physically active people. Findings in recent human studies have reported:  

  • Helps with muscle recovery time between workouts - allowing for more frequent workouts
  • Enhanced athletic performance as a result of more workouts and extended training time
  • Boosts immune system function
  • Enhances the antioxidant effects of Vitamins E and C, increasing free-radical scavenging and singlet oxygen quenching within the body

Most of the small research studies to date have used between 2 mg and 24 mg daily. However, optimal doses of astaxanthin have not been set for any condition.
