Asaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant known for “singlet oxygen quenching”, the process that neutralizes a less-stable form of oxygen, which causes oxidative damage to our cells. Astaxanthin has been shown to be 550 times more potent than vitamin E at neutralizing singlet oxygen in order to reverse the damaging effects of ultraviolet (UV) radiation on the skin. Scientists have also found it to be 54 times more potent than beta-carotene, making astaxanthin essential for eye health.
Amazingly, Astaxanthin is one of the few compounds that are able to cross through the blood-brain barrier as well as the blood-retinal barrier, offering major benefits to eye health. Unlike other antioxidants like beta carotene and lycopene, astaxanthin is able to protect the brain, central nervous system and eyes from free radicals and reduces inflammation.
There is evidence that astaxanthin can help improve cholesterol profiles by decreasing low density lipoprotein (LDL, also known as “bad” cholesterol) and triglycerides, and by increasing high density lipoprotein (HDL, or “good” cholesterol), as well as lower blood pressure, making it revolutionary for heart health, as well.
