Check it out! A substance known as Astaxanthin may be one of the most powerful antioxidants of all. The free radical scavenging capacity of Astaxanthin has been shown to be:
- 6,000 times that of vitamin C
- 800 times that of CoQ10
- 550 times that of vitamin E
- 200 times that of polyphenols
- 150 times that of anthocyanins
- 75 times that of alpha lipoic acid
Scientific results when taken together supports the concept that Astaxanthin’s anti aging properties may be more therapeutic rather than preventive in anti aging. Yes, a therapy for anti aging!
In animal studies focusing on flies, Astaxanthin significantly extended their lifespan and improved the age-related decline in locomotor function. Studies also suggest that Astaxanthin may play a role as a complement to a defective antioxidant system to exert its lifespan prolonging effects. These results in combination strongly suggest the anti aging properties of Astaxanthin and its therapeutic rather than preventive role against aging-related diseases.
“Astaxanthin is found in its highest concentration in Wild Pacific sockeye salmon. It is also found in krill, algae, red trout, shrimp, crab and lobster.” (Wikipedia)
