Astaxanthin has a unique molecular structure that makes it literally hundreds of times stronger than any other antioxidant molecule. For this reason, astaxanthin is often called “The King of Antioxidants”.
In fact, studies have confirmed that astaxanthin has superior quenching abilities against singlet oxygen, a type of free radical that is a primary factor in UV-induced photo-aging, wrinkling, and skin diseases. Research has shown that astaxanthin enhances fibroblast (skin cell) resilience against singlet oxygen attack and lipid peroxidation.
More recent research has also revealed that astaxanthin can scavenge different reactive oxygen species (ROS) such as peroxyl radicals, hydroxyl radicals, superoxide anions, and lipid peroxide radicals. Therefore, astaxanthin provides versatile antioxidant protection against the different harmful effects of toxins, smoking, UV radiation, X-rays, alcohol, and various medications. For this reason, astaxanthin has been referred to as “Nature’s Juggernaut against Free Radicals”.
In fact, a comprehensive free radical scavenging test showed that astaxanthin was significantly more powerful than most super-food vegetables and fruits.
