Oxidative damage can be seen as a form of “biological rust” that impairs the function of our cells and tissues, just as rust weakens a bridge or impairs an engine. Over time, oxidative damage can contribute to conditions such as cardiovascular disease, age-related macular degeneration, insulin resistance, diabetes, obesity, and neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer's, as well as skin diseases and other visible signs of aging.
Most antioxidants are either hydrophilic (water soluble) or lipophilic (lipid soluble), meaning that their activity is limited to protection of the lipid (fat) component of cells, or to the aqueous (water) part of cells. Water-soluble antioxidants such as vitamin C offer protection to the blood and the fluids within and around cells. Lipid-soluble antioxidants such as vitamin E are located in cell membranes, protecting the exterior of the cells from oxidation. Both types of antioxidants are required for complete cellular protection. Astaxanthin is unique in that it is both water- and lipid-soluble. Its chemical structure allows it to be present both inside and outside the cells, offering better overall protection against oxidative damage.
I don't know if it's just this or other things, but my skin has improved a lot and I will continue to buy this brand. Also, I want to have good vision and health when I'm older so have to start now in order to avoid problems in the future.
I have read that this antioxidant is much more powerful than vitamin E (which I also take) and is good to reduce inflammation. So far so good although I suppose time will tell. The price is reasonable and if the research is accurate is a great value.
My optometrist said to take this. It did NOT prevent cataracts.
J`aime beaucoup les produits que vous vendez, excellente qualité
It reduces sun damage, fewer freckles, side effect: an orange coloring of the skin
Too soon to tell if its helping but the price is great and easy to swallow little pills.
I hope the claims for Astaxanthin that I've read are true! I have to trust Natural Factors, a brand been around as long as I can recall. Price for this seems fair.
Label reads 'Powerful Cell Protection'. Who doesn't want and need that in this day and age.
I used to get this from the States, but I'm glad to see the good pricing here on the natural type. I have been taking this for a few years for skin health(wrinkles and photo aging), but it also improves visual acuity, improves muscles and physical endurance, inhibits inflammatory markers and improves cardiovascular health. According to my previous research, astaxanthin as an antioxidant is 550 times stronger than vitamin E, 40 times stronger than beta carotene, and 17 times stronger than grape seed extract.
work well for sun protection
