Astaxanthin Powder


Haematococcus pluvialis is a potent antioxidant that occurs naturally in several plants and animals. In addition to being an antioxidant, Haematococcus pluvialis also has anti-fatigue and anti-inflammatory properties and many other health benefits. Haematococcus pluvialis microalgae belong to a group of micronutrients called carotenoids and is a red pigment that gives salmon, lobster, and flamingo feathers their color.

Astaxanthin antioxidants protect your cells against the effects of free radicals, which are unstable molecules that can harm cellular structures leading to heart disease and more. Astaxanthin antioxidants neutralize free radicals by giving electrons that stabilize the molecules. Free radicals may come from normal metabolic processes in the body or external sources such as X-rays, cigarette smoke, air pollution, and industrial chemicals.

Working as an antioxidant, Astaxanthin powder helps to reduce oxidation in the body, which is often at the root of inflammation, which, if not treated, can cause long-term irreversible damage to one’s health. This inflammation is at the root of early aging, mental conditions such as dementia, and a host of other diseases and conditions, including eye problems, heart disease, arthritis, and more.

Natural astaxanthin powder is also able to remove excess light energy from cells (singlet-oxygen quenching) and has been proven to be far stronger than other popular antioxidants such as vitamin C (6000 times stronger), CoQ10 (800 times stronger), green tea catechins (550 times stronger) and alpha-lipoic acid (75 times stronger). With these figures in mind, it becomes clear that Astaxanthin is an excellent source of antioxidants.

Astaxanthin can be used for:

Sun Protection and Optimum Skin Health

Studies have shown that Astaxanthin protects the skin helping to improve moisture levels and smoothness, increasing skin elasticity, and reducing spots, freckles, and fine lines. It reduces sun damage and helps repair damage caused by sunburn as it penetrates the skin cells to promote internal healing.

Astaxanthin and Eye Health

Astaxanthin protects your eyes from diseases such as cataracts and macular degeneration. Studies show that supplementing with Astaxanthin reduces eye fatigue, improves far visual acuity(clarity of vision) and accommodation time (the eye’s ability to change focus from near to distant objects, and vice versa). Astaxanthin can also help protect against complications from diabetes that affect the eyes, such as diabetic retinopathy.

Endurance and Muscle Recovery

Salmon are among the animals that have naturally occurring high levels of Astaxanthin, and it is thought that this contributes to their amazing upstream swimming capabilities. As humans, we can harness this benefit as natural Astaxanthin helps promote muscle recovery, improves endurance and energy levels, and enhances strength.

Relief from Pain and Inflammation

Astaxanthin works to relieve pain, as well as being an effective anti-inflammatory supplement. As a completely natural product, it is similar in efficacy to prescription anti-inflammatories but without the side effects. Astaxanthin blocks COX 2, working similarly to Celebrex, the drug used for arthritis. It also reduces CRP (a c-reactive protein made in your liver and sent into the bloodstream in response to inflammation). Which is an indicator of heart disease, as well as many other levels to bring your body back into homeostasis?

Heart Disease and Blood Pressure

Astaxanthin can help to keep your heart healthy as it has been shown to affect a significant reduction in bad cholesterol (LDL-C) and triglycerides and, at the same time, raises good cholesterol (HDL-C). It also enhances blood flow and circulation by improving the thickness and elasticity of your arteries’ walls, reducing oxidative stress in the blood, and delaying blood clotting. Oxidative stress occurs when there is an imbalance between the production of free radicals and antioxidant defenses.

High cholesterol can clog arteries, which contributes to high blood pressure. As Astaxanthin reduces bad cholesterol, it can, along with other lifestyle changes, help to prevent hypertension.

Cell Health

As a powerful antioxidant, Astaxanthin is in a league of its own when working on the body. This is because of its unique hydrophilic (water-soluble) and lipophilic (fat-soluble) properties that allow the molecules to filter into every cell of the body. This means that the astaxanthin molecule can protect the fat-soluble part of the cell, and on the other side, protect the water-soluble part of the cell.

How to Use Astaxanthin, Dosage, and Instructions

Our bodies cannot produce Natural Astaxanthin, which means that it needs to be ingested either through food or dietary supplements. It is possible to get Astaxanthin naturally from foods such as certain types of marine algae, and algae are used as a source of Astaxanthin in supplements. However, in most cases, it is difficult to get enough Astaxanthin from food, and as such, supplements are a better form.

Research suggests the amount of Astaxanthin will vary depending on what it is being used for, with most studies using between 4 mg and 24mg per day. The correct dosage depends on your age and health and any conditions that need to be taken into account. Determining the proper dose should, therefore, be done in consultation with your physician. In most cases, astaxanthin supplements are taken as a capsule in the mornings with food.

Getting Started with Astaxanthin

Astaxanthin is one of the most popular carotenoids with its powerful antioxidant benefits that help keep a wide range of health conditions at bay. By curbing oxidative stres in the body due to neutralizing free radicals, Astaxanthin can help prevent disease.

In addition to a number of different benefits, Astaxanthin can help with skincare and UV protection, eye health, muscle endurance and recovery, pain and inflammation, heart disease prevention, ulcers, osteoarthritis, your immune response, diabetes, cell health, and more.
