Health Benefits at a Glance:
Astaxanthin is a very versatile antioxidant loaded with health benefits. It can support joint, immune, brain, cardiovascular, DNA, mitochondrial health and vascular health within the eye. So Astaxanthin with Phospholipids combines natural astaxanthin with a proprietary blend of four phospholipids to facilitate maximum absorption of astaxanthin into the bloodstream to get as much as possible out of the health benefits that Astaxanthin can give your body.
Why it Works:
Astaxanthin is powerful antioxidant which can support over all body health and is a very important nutrient for eye health support. The reason for that is that this powerful carotenoid can cross the blood-eye barrier and thereby support vascular health within the eye and protect the eyes’ sensitive cells .
However, astaxanthin is a fat-soluble antioxidant, meaning that its absorption can be low. To address this problem, Life Extension have blended 4 mg of natural astaxanthin with a proprietary blend of 80 mg of four phospholipids in its Astaxanthin with Phospholipids formula to facilitate maximum absorption of astaxanthin into the bloodstream.
The Science Behind the Product:
Astaxanthin is a red pigment molecule that is a member of the carotenoid family found in certain marine algae]. New research has revealed that astaxanthin plays a role in joint optimization, immune [2-4], brain [5-9], cardiovascular [10-17], DNA [6,18,19] and mitochondrial health [20-24]. Research has also demonstrated that astaxanthin can help promote healthy blood sugar levels for people who are in the normal range [25-27]. This formulation is designed to enhance astaxanthin absorption by several fold. Astaxanthin also promotes the activity of white blood cells (lymphocytes) and natural killer cells (NK) that play a role in the innate immune system [29-31]. Additionally, astaxanthin plays a role in fighting aging, protects heart muscle and supports eye health [32,33].
