Astaxanthin is perhaps the very best nutrient for anyone over the age of 40 to take on a daily basis. The clinically validated benefits of Natural Astaxanthin in areas that most concern people as they age are quite comprehensive; practically every concern for people approaching middle age and beyond is at least to some extent addressed by this single supplement: Cardiovascular health, eye & brain health, skin health & UV protection, immunity, energy & strength levels, aches & pains, cellular health—research indicates that Natural Astaxanthin addresses all of these and more. It is our opinion that every consumer over the age of 40 should be supplementing with at least 4mg of Natural Astaxanthin every day. And even people under the age of 40 should consider Astaxanthin as a great preventive supplement.
At the very heart of Astaxanthin’s benefits against aging are its foundational properties of being the world’s strongest and highest quality natural antioxidant and being a safe and natural, broad spectrum anti-inflammatory. As a result of these attributes, Astaxanthin has demonstrated the ability to protect our cells and the DNA within our cells from the onslaughts of oxidation and inflammation. In fact, these properties are the primary mechanisms of action from which most of Astaxanthin’s varied health benefits emanate.
In order to fully understand Astaxanthin’s benefits against ageing, we will first review related research that shows anti-ageing properties in each of the categories we mentioned above. This review will focus on human research; however, in a few cases we will cite relevant pre-clinical research (which will be limited to a small handful of studies). Then we will look at research specific to Astaxanthin’s ability to protect vital parts of our cells such as DNA and the mitochondria. Lastly, we will round out this paper by examining Astaxanthin’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory characteristics that further demonstrate its ability to protect the cells in our bodies.
