The good news is that astaxanthin, nature’s most potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, can cross the Blood-Retina-Border and restore the antioxidant defense in the eyes. It is widely understood that our body’s antioxidant protection weakens with age.
Still, astaxanthin has been shown to restore our natural defenses by reducing the ROS load and stimulating the expression of endogenous antioxidant molecules. Astaxanthin not only neutralizes aggressive oxygen molecules, it also down-regulates signal molecules that trigger inflammation. It improves ocular blood flow, which supply the eye with oxygen and nutrients, and accelerates the removal of toxins and waste.
Astaxanthin was found to work well with other carotenoids, especially with lutein and zeaxanthin. It enhances the absorption of harmful blue light, helping protect the retina from damage across the entire solar spectrum.
Studies with natural astaxanthin have demonstrated that astaxanthin can relieve eye fatigue by improving capillary blood flow. Astaxanthin was found to enhance the quality of vision by preventing oxidative damage and preserving the “zoom-in / zoom-out” function of the ciliary muscle. AstaReal® study demonstrated that astaxanthin increased retinal blood flow and induced positive changes in blood pressure, intraocular pressure, and plasma glucose levels, helping prevent AMD and diabetic retinopathy.
All in all, astaxanthin can help us to improve symptoms associated with computer vision syndrome, reduce eye fatigue, reduce inflammation of the ciliary muscle and promote blood circulation in the eyes.
