The Most Powerful Antioxidant

Health benefits of Astaxanthin


According to Dr. Mercola it is possibly the most powerful of all antioxidants. Only on the market for a short time it is not widely known about yet but what we do know is very impressive:

It has been beneficial in the treatment of a host of ailments and these are some of the ones tested:

  • Alzheimer's
  • Anti-inflammatory, aiding in joint, ligament and tendon pain
  • Boosts the immune system
  • Carpal tunnel
  • High cholesterol, improves good cholesterol levels
  • Improve muscle performance
  • Improve skin elasticity
  • Macular degeneration, improves eye health
  • Male fertility
  • Menopausal symptoms
  • Parkinson's
  • Prevention of cancer
  • Prevention of cell damage
  • Prevention of sunburn, when applied directly to the skin
  • Reducing the symptoms of acid reflux
  • Rheumatoid arthritis

It isn't just used orally but topically as well.

This supplement can be applied directly to the skin to protect against sunburn.

Is it because it is so new that there is a word of warning?

There is not enough research completed on Astaxanthin to positively state that it is safe for consumption by those who are pregnant or breast feeding. The studies which have been performed indicate it is safe in doses of 4 to 40 mg daily in conjunction with other carotenoids and supplements for up to 12 months. Web M.D. stated that research is still young.

Please consult with  your physician or health care provider before changing the way you take care of your health.

Oh are you listing my conditions, Judy? This sounds wonderful, and I will look for it at the store.

I've been looking off and on for it for two years and when I came across it I snatched it up then came home to look it up because I had forgotten what it was used for. lol

Thanks, for the visit, Icy, and I hope it helps both of us.
