Astaxanthin 120‘s is available by Pure Encapsulations.
protects the phospholipid membranes of cells from oxidative damage. In
a recent U.S. study, it demonstrated the ability to cross the blood
brain barrier and protect the retina in animals, suggesting its
potential for supporting the brain and nervous system from free radical
damage. Initial trials with astaxanthin suggest that it may boost the
skin‘s natural antioxidant defenses against ultraviolet induced free
radicals. In a human clinical evaluation, supplementation with BioAstin
astaxanthin for two weeks provided significant antioxidant protection
for the skin. In cell cultures, astaxanthin provided greater protection
than both beta-carotene and lutein, in part by supporting catalase and
superoxide dismutase activity.
Astaxanthin may also moderate
the activity of polyamines generated by exposure to sunlight. In one
double-blind placebo controlled trial, BioAstin astaxanthin
significantly supported joint comfort in human volunteers. The results
of another human clinical trial suggest that BioAstin astaxanthin
supported knee comfort and joint function after strenuous leg
exercises. Subjects in a third study using BioAstin astaxanthin
reported enhanced wrist nerve comfort.
