If you don’t already know about Astaxanthin, you should read this. Click the image to the left for a quick video discussion.
The supplement is relatively new, but has become so popular there have been two manufacturing facilities recently added to the supplier list.
Nutritionists and the natural health field tout Astaxanthin for its extreme antioxidant properties:
- 550 times more potent that vitamin-E
- 1000 times more potent than vitamin-C
Asta is a naturally occurring pigment from the carotenoid family that certain plants use to protect themselves from sunlight and toxins that can stress them to death.
Astaxanthin gives salmon, lobster, shrimp, crab, and even flaminoes their pink and red colors, because Astaxanthin is dark red in color, and the algae they eat contains a whole bunch.
On the Dr. Oz show
Doctor Joe Mercola has one of — if not the — top health advice websites in the U.S. On the Dr. Oz show he said:
“Astaxanthin is a phenomenally beneficial supplement in that is one of the most potent natural anti-inflammatories that we know of.”
Why I use Astaxanthin
I take eight to 12 mg daily and have for years. I take it for all the usual reasons cited by the experts, plus I spend a lot of time outside and Asta has well-documented sunlight protection and anti-wrinkling qualities.
It also has recovery and joint protection benefits for those of us that workout.
But wait there’s more
Suzy Cohen, author and syndicated columnist has been a pharmacist for almost 25 years.
Suzy said this on her website, “Several well-designed studies conclude that natural Astaxanthin prevents skin damage from the sun’s ultraviolet rays and this reduces signs of sagging, wrinkles and dryness.”
Suzy’s advice is always valuable and it’s worth visiting her site even if just to sign up for her free newsletter. Use the search box to find Astaxanthin.
Suzy does a great service. Wish her the best of success. Deserves it.
