Astaxanthin is an amazing reddish pigment prevalent in fish like salmon, trout, shrimp, lobster, crab, and other seafood. It is a powerful antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties and many other benefits like pain relief, supports eye health, cleans out radical cells, fights fatigue, protects the skin by moisturizing, and helps many age related ailments such as high cholesterol, liver issues, macular degeneration, Alzheimer’s disease, and Parkinson’s disease.
A study in 2007 indicated that astaxanthin outperforms many other antioxidants and found to be 6,000 times more powerful than vitamin C, 800 times stronger than CoQ10, and 550 times stronger than green tea.
Simple enough and safe, it is also used for food coloring, and in agriculture for producing chickens so you are already getting small amounts through some everyday foods.
I want astaxanthin on my side!
