Astaxanthin is a powerful natural antioxidant with a wide range of benefits across almost all areas of health. Here are just four of the most common and pervasive:
Antioxidants help prevent, reduce, and relieve inflammation and oxidative stress associated with the buildup of plaque in both the heart and blood vessels and the lungs and airways. Other ways it supports the cardiovascular system include:
In addition, a compound derived from this potent natural antioxidant was found in animal studies to protect the heart from heart-attack-related damage.
Along with these cardiovascular benefits come several others that can also help with your physical fitness goals, including improved metabolism, endurance, and recovery. For these reasons, a review of scientific research on the substance published in Frontiers in Nutrition in 2017 found it an effective health supplement for athletes and recreationally-active individuals. As an example, one particular study found that cyclists taking the substance notched 5% faster speeds and exerted 15% more power than those not taking it. Similarly, studies have found it useful in recovering from exercise and exertion, including reducing joint pain and increasing range of motion.
In 2012, a study published in Acta Biochimica Polonica, The Journal of the Polish Biochemical Society, the Committee of Biochemistry, and Biophysics Polish Academy of Sciences, found that a combination of oral doses and topical applications of this compound resulted in increased skin moisture, reduced wrinkles, smaller age spots, and overall smoother skin.
Animal research has provided a great deal of insight into the potential benefits of this plant-derived compound for the nervous system and the brain, among them:
