Our bodies constantly react with oxygen and as we breathe our cells produce energy. As a consequence of this activity, highly reactive molecules are produced known as free radicals. Free radicals interact with other molecules within cells. This can cause oxidative damage to proteins and cells. Antioxidants counter the negative impacts which come about as a result of this oxidation taking place in the cells.

The world of antioxidants

There are a wide variety of antioxidants around which are known to help reduce the damaging effects of free radicals. However, none of those antioxidants can be compared with the work of a particular antioxidant that goes by the name Astaxanthin.

What is Astaxanthin?

Astaxanthin is a natural chemical element which can be found in certain aquatic living organisms like shrimp and salmon. They are the elements that give these living organisms the colour of their flesh. When we consume Astaxanthin it provides us with a lot of benefits with regards to helping to reduce the effects of oxidation within the cells. Some of these benefits include;

  • Astaxanthin is known for its ability to decrease the pain that a person feels. This refers to its ability to reduce the oxidation that is taking place in cells, thus reducing the painful effects of damaged cells
  • It is also known as a way of preventing tiredness. Astaxanthin has the ability to help an individual to perform activities without showing signs of tiredness. The oxidation effects which would have brought about the feeling of tiredness within the body are kept under control by the Astaxanthin and therefore an individual can continue physically demanding activities for a longer time
  • Helps to promote the proper functioning of the human eye
  • This powerful antioxidant is the only antioxidant that has the ability to work on each and every type of cell of the body thereby making it a very powerful antioxidant among all the other antioxidants in the system. The best thing about Astaxanthin is that it is natural and therefore you don’t need to worry about any chemical side effects as a result of continuous usage

These are just a few of the things that combine to make Astaxanthin to be regarded as a great antioxidant among all other antioxidants.
