What is Astaxanthin?
Astaxanthin by Solgar is a product that is obtained from Astaxanthin (Haematococcus pluvalis), a carotenoid pigment that can be found in the trout, microalgae, yeast and prawns, among other marine animals. It is most commonly found in Pacific salmon, providing the fish its pink color.
What are the properties of Astaxanthin?
The main activity carried out by Astaxanthin is to exert protection at a cellular level against the damage produced by free radicals. These substances are produced as a result of the reactions that take place in our own body, or due to external elements, like pollution, sun exposure or being in contact with certain damaging substances.
The danger of the free radicals is that they may affect all of the tissues that form the organs and systems of our organism, spreading the cellular oxidative damage.
It is estimated that the antioxidant power of astaxanthin could greatly exceed that of vitamin E and C together.
Astaxanthin possesses a molecular structure similar to that of lutein, zeaxanthin or canthaxanthin, other types of antioxidants, but what really sets it apart from the rest is its ability to stay active. Once it is inside our body, offering its antioxidant properties, it continues to be active and therefore its lifespan is prolonged, providing health benefits for longer, and whats more, it does not have a contrary effect, ie, it does not turn into a pro-oxidant.
Thus, the benefits of astaxanthin support the following body's systems, offering:
- Eye Health
- Skin Health
- Cardiovascular System
- Bone Health
Who can take this Astaxanthin supplement?
- Anyone who wishes to improve or maintain their general state of health.
- Anyone who suffers from some sort of pathology related to eyesight, skin problems or joint conditions, that also want to see their cholesterol levels reduced.
