The Top 5 Health Benefits of Astaxanthin
Could this be the answer to Alzheimer prevention?
Astaxanthin - Fights aging, inflammation and improves endurance
What is astaxanthin? Astaxanthin is what makes flamingos and salmon pink--the pigment is commercially harvested from the microalga Haematococcus pluvialis, the richest known natural source for ASTAXANTHIN.
There are many health benefits from taking astaxanthin but I'm going to give you what I think are the top five.
1) Protects the brain from dementia and Alzheimer's
2) Greatly reduces inflammation and joint pain
3) Reduces oxidative damage to your DNA by 40%
4) Causes cancer cells to commit suicide
5) Boosts immune function and helps the body resist infections
Another claimed benefit that I find interesting is that taking astaxanthin can help prevent sunburn from over exposure to UV light. You would need to take astaxanthin for a few weeks before it would help prevent sunburns.
Research also shows that taking astaxanthin with a high grade fish or krill oil works best since it's fat soluble.
