Oxidative Stress, Antioxidant Defenses & Astaxanthin

Learn how antioxidants support health and well-being and discover what makes astaxanthin a superior antioxidant.

A diverse range of oxygen free radicals and other reactive oxygen species (ROS) can be formed in the human body. If the ROS generated exceeds the protective effects of antioxidants, it can cause oxidative stress – a deleterious process, damaging cell structures, including lipids, proteins, and even DNA. Many people do not get adequate levels of antioxidants from food alone. Supplementation with dietary antioxidants helps support the body’s own antioxidant defenses, and control the harmful effects of excessive ROS.

Astaxanthin is a powerful natural antioxidant and highly effective at counteracting ROS. Astaxanthin has the unique ability to span the cellular membrane and trap ROS within the membrane’s interior, and along its surface boundaries. Astaxanthin neutralizes ROS without becoming a pro-oxidant in the process. Clinically, astaxanthin has shown diverse health benefits, while also demonstrating excellent safety and tolerability.
