AstaXanthin (asta-zan-thin) Has Tremendous Promise For Health And Wellbeing
AstaXanthin May Give Powerful Support To:
- Protection From Ultraviolet Light
- Immune System Function
- Energy Metabolism
- Healthy Eyes
- Suitable For Vegetarians
Strong Sun Light, toxins, starchy carbohydrates, lack of fruit and vegetables and modern day living is creating huge amounts of free radical oxidation in our bodies. Only eating 12-14 portions of fruits and vegetables can provide enough antioxidants to clear these free radicals.
Studies have shown that a new antioxidant may have strong properties against free radical scavenging activities and protect against lipid peroxidation and oxidative damage of LDL-cholesterol, cell membranes, cells, and tissues. It may also help to protect the retina in strong sunlight (recommended in strong sunlight: always wear health protecting eyewear).
AstaXanthin is a naturally occurring carotenoid pigment, which are known to have good antioxidant propertites. Our product is made using BioAstin® Natural Astaxanthin, the world's best selling brand of Astaxanthin for humans. It was the first source of Astaxanthin for human nutrition reviewed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
What is Vitamin A (Beta-Carotene)?
Beta-carotene is a red-orange pigment found in plants and fruits and a pre-cursor of Vitamin A. The human body converts Beta-carotene into Vitamin A (Retinol), which is necessary for healthy skin and mucus membranes, immune system support, and good eye health and vision.
Beta-Carotene is also a Carotenoid, which is an antioxidant playing a major role in inhibiting the oxidation of other molecules and protecting the body from degradation due to free radical damage. Free radicals damage the cells through oxidation and are the culprit for several chronic illnesses. Antioxidants help strengthen the immune system, protecting against free radicals, and lowering potential risks of developing disease.
What is Vitamin E (D-Alpha Tocopherol)?
Vitamin E is an important vitamin required for the proper function of many organs in the body. It functions as an antioxidant and protects the body via its roles in anti-inflammatory processes, inhibition of platelet aggregation, and immune enhancement.
Vitamin E is often involved as part of a regime against cataracts, asthma, respiratory infections, skin disorders, aging skin, sunburns, cystic fibrosis, infertility, impotence, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), peptic ulcers, for certain inherited diseases and to prevent allergies.
What is BioAstin® Natural Astaxanthin?
BioAstin® Natural Astaxanthin is the world's best selling brand of Astaxanthin for humans. AstaXanthin™ is considered to be a powerful antioxidant and a natural dye created by marine algae. It may be able to neutralize free radicals in tough-to-penetrate organs like your kidneys, liver & lungs. It combats ongoing oxidative stress, supporting skin, muscle and joint health. Studies have found it to have up to 550 times the antioxidant activity of vitamin E and green tea catechins, as well as 10 times the antioxidant activity of beta-carotene, surpassing many of the antioxidant benefits of Vitamin C and other carotenoids.
What is Lutein ?
One of the newest discoveries in nutritional research is the role of the Carotenoid Lutein. Carotenoids are botanical pigments that give certain plants their distinctive red, orange and yellow colours. Beyond their broad-spectrum antioxidant activity, Carotenoids have an affinity for specific organs in the body. In the case of Lutein (the pigment that gives a sunny yellow colour to corn and marigolds), that organ is the eye. It functions as a light filter, protecting the eye tissues from sunlight damage. It is used to assist in the prevention of eye diseases, including age-related macular degeneration (AMD), cataracts, and retinitis pigmentosa.
A number of studies have already shown that an increased intake of Vitamins E, C and carotenoids like Lutein is also protective for the lungs and airways. Antioxidant micronutrients are involved in the maintenance of healthy lung tissue. In a large population study, scientists found that subjects with high intakes of Vitamins C and E, and the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin, had significantly better lung function. An increase of lutein and zeaxanthin, as well Vitamin C and Vitamin E intakes has been found to be enough to slow down the ageing process.
