The natural aging process is accompanied by enhanced mitochondrial dysfunction, which leads to increased free radical formation – to a point that it can overload our body’s antioxidant defence systems. That is why our body accumulates oxidative damage as we age, and we become more susceptible to a number of disorders.

Clinical studies have shown that natural astaxanthin:

  • Improves cognitive function in healthy seniors.
  • Delays aging through reduced oxidative damage of blood lipids and the skin. 
  • Delays age-related vision degeneration by improving blood flow in capillaries in the eye and reducing free radicals in the aqueous humor.

The cardiovascular system transports oxygen, nutrients, hormones, and cellular waste products throughout the body. Oxidative stress and inflammation contribute to the hardening and narrowing of the blood vessels, which silently and slowly blocks arteries, putting blood flow at risk.

Clinical studies have shown that natural astaxanthin:

  • Reduces oxidative stress and inflammation.
  • Improves lipid profiles and promotes better blood flow in capillaries. 

 

Exercise recovery_414x311Muscle Endurance & Recovery

When we exercise, our muscles burn calories and produce free radicals as a by-product. If the number of free radicals exceeds the body’s antioxidant defence capacity, these molecules can damage our muscles and reduce their ability to contract.

Clinical studies have shown that natural astaxanthin:

  • Improves muscle endurance and strength.
  • Prevents muscle fatigue.
  • Prevents exercise-induced free radical production.
  • Inhibits the formation of lactic acid.

As a protective barrier between our body and its surroundings, the skin is exposed to many factors that induce free radical formation such as UV rays and pollutants. They can damage the skin cells and cause premature aging. Moreover, our skin becomes thinner and more susceptible to these factors as we age, further increasing the production of free radicals.

Clinical studies have shown that natural astaxanthin:

  • Reduces hyperpigmentation, wrinkle formation and collagen breakdown.
  • Improves the skin elasticity and moisture content.
  • Prevents UV-induced skin damage.
