The King of Carotenoids Derived from Microalgae
Astaxanthin is a carotenoid, which are pigment colors in nature. Astaxanthin is the red pigment color found in salmon, shrimp, crab and even the pink color in flamingos. It’s also found in krill, algae, red trout and lobster. BioAstin Hawaiian Astaxanthin is derived from microalgae called Haematococcus pluvialis. It’s grown on land in controlled, fresh water ponds and contains no fish or shellfish by-products.
BioAstin Hawaiian Astaxanthin acts like a scavenger as it removes the oxygen radicals in the bloodstream and tissues. Taking BioAstin Hawaiian Astaxanthin may also support a healthy aging process.
Benefits of Antioxidants
Eating a diet rich in antioxidants is essential to maintaining health and longevity. Antioxidants naturally reduce free radicals. In turn, they reduce the oxidative load in the body.
Antioxidants naturally protect your cells from oxidation, and lower the risk of certain health issues. By boosting the amount of antioxidants in your diet, you can greatly improve your health.
In the human body, biochemical reactions occur every second. Each reaction maintains proper functions throughout the body. If any of these reactions break down, then health problems can arise.
Destructive Chain of Free Radicals
Free radicals form whenever the normal chemical bonds and reactions in your body break down. These broken bonds and disturbed reactions form split molecules with odd numbers of electrons, known as radicals.
As these radicals build up in the system, they can attack stable molecules and cause them to break down into free radicals. The chain will continue, and overtime, healthy cells can be disrupted, and lead to oxidative stress.
Where do free radicals come from?
- can form naturally as a result of normal metabolic processes
- some granulocytes in the immune system produce free radicals as a byproduct to neutralize and destroy bacteria and viruses
- may form from environmental factors such as pollution, secondhand cigarette smoke, radiation, and pesticides
- poor metabolic processes can also create free radicals in your system
When large amounts of free radicals build up, they can cause mass cell death and increase the risk for developing health issues.
BioAstin Hawaiian Astaxanthin
The best way to combat free radicals is to eat a diet rich in antioxidants. Foods bursting with colors, vitamins and minerals often contain antioxidants that can keep free radical production at bay. However, as pollution levels rise and people’s lives get more hectic, the level of free radicals is also rising. To combat this rising level, many people need more than their daily fruits and vegetables to fuel their bodies with sufficient antioxidants.
BioAstin Hawaiian Astaxanthin is chock-full of antioxidants, and is even known as a super-antioxidant. Due to its molecular structure, Astaxanthin is a unique antioxidant that can scavenge for free radicals throughout all of the body’s tissues. It’s one of the few antioxidants known that can traverse throughout the entire body, supporting cell integrity while boosting immune function.
Astaxanthin also has the unique quality of protecting the entire cell. Most antioxidants are either hydrophobic or hydrophilic, meaning they target either the lipid soluble or the water soluble portions of the cell. Astaxanthin, though, has a polar-nonpolar-polar molecular fingerprint that spans over the cell membrane, and protects both the outside and inside of the cell. Both of these unique properties of Astaxanthin allow the antioxidant to be supercharged in the body and offer great protection against oxidation.
Benefits of BioAstin Hawaiian Astaxanthin
Often called the “King of Carotenoids” due to its red pigment, and sheer strength, Hawaiian Astaxanthin is superior to other, well-known, antioxidants such as beta-carotene or lycopene, Astaxanthin is up to 100 times more powerful. Plus, Astaxanthin doesn’t convert into a pro-oxidant once ingested. Unlike other antioxidants, Astaxanthin maintains its original molecular form as it travels throughout the bloodstream and tissues.
The super-antioxidant can support the function and integrity of the central nervous system, peripheral nervous system, eyes, cardiovascular system and more.* It helps promote a healthy oxidative balance, which may result in numerous health benefits.*
Some of the specific benefits Astaxanthin has in the human body include:
- Supports joint integrity and a healthy inflammation response*
- Improves recovery rates after workouts, supports muscles, and increases overall endurance*
- Supports healthy eyes by crossing the blood-brain barrier and protecting the photoreceptor cells in of the retina*
- Promotes healthy skin and the aging process by replenishing the skin’s natural moisture reserves*
