Astaxanthin

Astaxanthin can have a beneficial effect on almost every cell in the body, including the eyes, brain, heart and kidneys. Studies show that astaxanthin may even extend life expectancy, due to its ability to fight the main causes of aging, namely not only in the skin, but in the organs and tissues throughout the body! Astaxanthin has strong properties to absorb ultraviolet light. Right now you have a unique opportunity to see everything about Astaxanthin in one place!

What is Astaxanthin?

Astaxanthin is one of the strongest natural antioxidants, which has a wide range of beneficial effects on the human (and not only human) organism. Astaxanthin is classified as a carotenoid (a group of pigments that are soluble in fats. Like beta-carotene).

You must have already met Astaxanthin. This antioxidant is contained, for example, in:

  • salmon, shrimp or lobster meat
  • red yeast
  • water algae and more...

Everything that contains Astaxanthin is colored pink to orange, the redder the better (it depends on the amount). The single-celled freshwater algae Haematococcus pluvialis contains the most astaxanthin. Thanks to the beneficial effects of Astaxanthin on the human body, special nurseries of this algae are being created all over the world (we also have 1 here in the Czech Republic). At the same time, if you are a vegetarian or vegan, this algae is the only source of Astaxanthin for you.

What are the basic effects of Astaxanthin and sunbathing?

Astaxanthin is one of the strongest natural antioxidants, which has a wide range of beneficial effects. Astaxanthin in the human body helps break down free radicals. However, this antioxidant has a number of other positive effects on our organism. The basic ones include the following:

  • Protects the skin
  • Reduces inflammatory reactions in your body
  • Reduces the risk of cancer
  • Reduces the effects of diabetes
  • Protects heart muscle and blood vessels
  • It slows down the aging of the brain
  • Supports eye health

Skin protection

Studies show that Astaxanthin can rejuvenate the skin from within. Astaxanthin is one of the most powerful and versatile marine plant antioxidants known and has the ability to fight skin-damaging free radicals. Provides effective protection against ultraviolet radiation, the strongest risk factor for skin cancer.

Effects of using Astaxanthin in the area of skin protection:

  • Reduces wrinkles
  • Reduces the size of age spots
  • At the same time improves hydration, elasticity and texture of the skin in both men and women
  • Improves sebum production, and is also suitable for acneous skin
  • It works as a natural sunscreen, it is effective in absorbing sunlight

Astaxanthin and sunbathing

Astaxanthin can protect your skin from harmful UV radiation and sunburn during the summer months. In addition, it has the ability to speed up skin healing after sun damage.

The human body is mainly exposed to intense sunlight during the summer months, which is unfortunately harmful to our skin. UV radiation, or ultraviolet radiation, is electromagnetic waves invisible to the human eye. Prolonged exposure to UV radiation results in reddening of the skin and may even cause burns. Chronic exposure of the skin to UV radiation can, in extreme cases, lead to skin cancer in addition to the appearance of pigment spots and wrinkles. Astaxanthin is a highly effective antioxidant that prevents damage to cells by active oxygen. With this action, it also participates in protecting the skin from UV radiation.

Strengthening of immune function

Your immune system protects you from infections and routinely monitors your body for cancer-causing cells. Astaxanthin helps balance the immune system by stimulating its components that fight infection, cancer and inflammation.

Astaxanthin increases the number and activity of white blood cells called lymphocytes, which are responsible for creating the body's natural immune response.

Cancer prevention at every stage

Taking Astaxanthin along with other carotenoids is associated with a reduced risk of many different types of cancer. Increased intake of carotenoids such as astaxanthin usually reduces the risk of cancer.

Prevents cancer initiation by protecting DNA from UV and oxidant damage.

Unlike many drugs, astaxanthin shows beneficial effects against cancer at every stage of its development.

Reduction of diabetes and its consequences

Astaxanthin helps prevent diabetes while also helping to mitigate the long-term consequences faced by diabetics. Astaxanthin supplementation slows the development of diabetic nephropathy (kidney disease), reduces the formation of cataracts and diabetic retinopathy, and reduces numerous cardiovascular complications of diabetes.

Obese people develop a dangerous accumulation of fat in the liver, predisposing them to cirrhosis and liver cancer. Astaxanthin supplements have been found to reduce liver fat and triglyceride levels.

Effects of using Astaxanthin in diabetes:

  • Reduces glucose levels in the blood
  • Improvement of insulin sensitivity
  • Reduces inflammation and oxidative stress
  • Preserves the ability of the pancreas to secrete insulin
  • Prevents massive weight gain

Protection of cardiovascular health

Astaxanthin has strong antioxidant effects that fight against cardiovascular diseases.

Effects of Astaxanthin use on cardiovascular health:

  • Reduces blood pressure
  • Improves endothelial function
  • Delays strokes caused by hypertension
  • Helps to normalize lipid profiles
  • Reduces levels of triglycerides and cholesterol

These effects may reduce the risk of clot formation in a major vessel.

Astaxanthin also reduces inflammation and the production of certain enzymes that destabilize plaques, making them more prone to rupture and block blood flow.

In the heart muscle itself, Astaxanthin enhances mitochondrial energy delivery, which helps the heart muscle contract stronger and more efficiently.

Slowing down brain aging

Astaxanthin has numerous beneficial effects in the brain. Unlike many other antioxidant molecules, astaxanthin crosses the blood-brain barrier, allowing it to saturate and protect brain tissue.

Effects of Astaxanthin use in the brain and nervous system:

  • Directly fights against the oxidative influence in Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease
  • Supports cognitive functions
  • Improves memory

An important promoter of eye health

Astaxanthin prevents or slows the three most common eye diseases: age-related macular degeneration, cataracts and glaucoma.

The human retina naturally contains the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin, molecules closely related to Astaxanthin. Supplementation with all three carotenoids has been shown to improve visual acuity and contrast detection. Astaxanthin protects retinal cells from oxidative stress and significantly reduces the area of destructive growth of new blood vessels on the retina.

Astaxanthin dosage

While there is no set recommended daily intake of Astaxanthin, most Astaxanthin supplements designed for daily use are available in 4mg-12mg amounts.

Pregnant and breastfeeding women should consult their doctor about taking astaxanthin. Astaxanthin is not recommended for children under 12 years of age.
