10 benefits of astaxanthin for the human body


Scavenging free radicals

Improve the anti-aging ability of human body

Free radicals produced in the human body are extremely unstable molecules that can be combined with anything that can react at any time to produce “oxidation” and oxidation will cause a chain reaction to produce more free radicals, as we age, free radicals will damage the strength and elasticity of our muscles. Astaxanthin, as one of the most efficient natural antioxidants, has the most important function of clearing free radicals and improving the antioxidant and anti-aging ability of the human body.

Anti-inflammatory properties

Based on its powerful antioxidant effect, astaxanthin has significant activity in enhancing the body’s immunity and fighting chronic inflammation. Astaxanthin can inhibit a variety of inflammatory factors including tumor necrosis fact-A

[TNF-a, prostaglandin E-2(PGE-2), interleukin-1β (1L-13) and nitric oxide (NO).]

Another way astaxanthin fights inflammation is by inhibiting cyclooxygenase enzymes (Cox-1 and Cox-2).

Prevention and treatment of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases

Astaxanthin activates vascular endothelial cells, nitric oxide synthase activity dilates blood vessels, reduces blood pressure, improves blood supply and oxygen supply, inhibits angiotensin II, improves blood viscosity, and can also play a role in regulating blood pressure. Astaxanthin reduces triglyceride, total cholesterol and low density lipoprotein, increases high density lipoprotein, inhibits the oxidation of low density lipoprotein, inhibits vascular endothelial inflammation and abnormal platelet aggregation, so as to fundamentally prevent arteriosclerosis. Astaxanthin can inhibit platelet aggregation and prevent thrombosis. Long-term use of astaxanthin can continue to effectively dilate microvessels and soften blood vessels.

Extremely penetrating power

Natural astaxanthin can penetrate the three major barriers of blood-brain barrier, blood-pancreas barrier and blood-testicular barrier, and is the only carotenoid that can penetrate the blood-brain barrier, and is the only carotenoid that can act on brain cells and eyeball retina.

Transmembrane stability

The cell membrane of an organism is made up of a phospholipid bilayer. Natural astaxanthin can cross the phospholipid bilayer of the cell membrane, prevent the phospholipid molecules from being damaged by oxidation, better guarantee the stability of the cell membrane, and thus significantly extend the life of the cell.

Super absorbency

The structure of astaxanthin, beta-carotene and lutein is very similar, but astaxanthin has more OH groups and C=O groups, which greatly improves the hydrophilicity of the molecule, making astaxanthin both lipophilic and hydrophilic, so that it can cross the membrane bilayer phospholipid structure, so that it has antioxidant effects both inside and outside the cell. This special structure of astaxanthin means that it can play a “top two” antioxidant effect, the lipophilic part in the middle can capture the “oily” free radicals in the cell membrane, and the hydrophilic part at both ends can capture the “water-based” free radicals in the cytoplasm and outside the cell, which also determines that astaxanthin is easily absorbed by the human body and can quickly reach the human organs.

Protective effects on the eyes and central nervous system

Astaxanthin can effectively prevent oxidation of retina and damage of photoreceptor cells through the blood-brain barrier, indicating that astaxanthin can prevent and treat “age-related macular degeneration” and has a good effect on improving retinal function. Astaxanthin can effectively treat the central nervous system, especially the brain and spine. Ischemic reperfusion injury, spinal cord injury, Parkinson’s syndrome, Alzheimer’s syndrome and other central nervous system injuries.

Relieve exercise fatigue

Effect of astaxanthin on relieving exercise fatigue

There are mainly the following three aspects:


Inhibit the oxidative pressure of free radicals generated during exercise, eliminate free radicals generated during the oxygen supply process of mitochondria, and reduce the oxidative damage of free radicals to the body.

Optimize energy metabolism and inhibit inflammatory factors:

Astaxanthin combines with fat in the blood to provide energy during aerobic metabolism, reduce blood sugar, glycogen consumption, increase tolerance, and extend exercise time.

Lower lactic acid levels in your muscles:

The best way to clear lactic acid is astaxanthin by promoting the metabolism of the body, quickly relieve exercise fatigue, reduce the delayed muscle soreness and joint swelling pain after strenuous exercise.

Uv radiation protection

The strong antioxidant activity of astaxanthin can be used as a potential photoprotective agent to prevent photoaging of the skin.

Astaxanthin can effectively remove free radicals caused by computer radiation, environmental pollution, smoking, and skin aging, delay skin aging, protect cell membranes and mitochondrial membranes from oxidative damage, so as to prevent cells from being harmed by oxidative reactions.


Astaxanthin can significantly inhibit the initial carcinogenesis induced by chemicals, and has anti-proliferation effects and enhanced immune function on epithelial cells exposed to carcinogens, such as inhibiting the growth of bladder cancer, oral cancer, colon cancer, stomach cancer and breast cancer.

Astaxanthin can also reduce the carcinogenicity of aflatoxins, and has a good effect on reducing the number and volume of aflatoxin-induced liver tumor cells.
