What is astaxanthin?

Astaxanthin is well-known for its antioxidant properties. Researchers have revealed that the antioxidant properties of astaxanthin are greatly more powerful when compared to other commonly known antioxidants. For instances, astaxanthin is up to 6000 times stronger than Vitamin C and 3000 times stronger than Resveratrol.1

What are the benefits of consuming astaxanthin?

Skin Health

UV exposure from the sunlight remains the major cause contributing to skin aging. UVB can reach the skin’s epidermis while UVA can penetrate the dermis causing DNA damage and increasing free radicals damage which contributes to skin aging. 2

It is found that astaxanthin possesses remarkable anti-aging effects in helping to prevent photo-aging of the skin as early as 6 to 8 weeks. It has been shown that 6mg intake of astaxanthin daily for 6 weeks help to improve the conditions of the skin such as moisture content, dryness, and roughness. 3 Also, it has been shown that taking 6mg astaxanthin daily for 8 weeks help to reduce wrinkles and improve skin elasticity. 4. These skin improvements are due to astaxanthin’s superior antioxidant functions in inhibiting the free radical formation and prevent inflammation in the skin layers.5
