What is Astaxanthin?

Vitamin or Supplement

Astaxanthin, which was discussed on "The Dr. Oz Show," has been praised as a very effective anti-inflammatory supplement, which some experts believe slows aging and even prevents certain disease.

This supplement is a cousin to beta carrotene, but is much more potent. It's derived from a marine algae, which is responsible for the coloring of salmon, and for turning flamingos pink.

Dr. Joseph Mercola has praised the supplement, noting that it is one of a select few he takes as part of his daily vitamin regimen.

Astaxanthin Health Benefits & Dosage

First and foremost, this is a great anti-inflammatory supplement, which helps prevent colds and other health issues including diseases. The astaxanthin supplement can also help prevent cateracts and improve athletic performance. Dr. Mercola suggested that the promise of this supplement could be similar to that of Vitamin D.

Benefits of taking this supplement can include supporting healthy immune function, supporting a healthier cardiovascular system, healthier skin, increased energy levels and potential for anti-aging through cellular health.

The right dose to take is about 10 milligrams a day as recommended by Dr. Joseph Mercola on Dr. Oz's show. Dr. Mercola also recommended taking the supplement with a meal containing a decent amount of fat, saying that taking this on an empty stomach might not be as effective.

      How does Astaxanthin compare to fish oil? That's basically what I've been using for many years, and it definitely has helped me reduce inflammation and improved my recovery time from workouts.
