Astaxanthin Gac Fruit Oil – A Super Anti-Oxidant
ASTAXANTHIN GAC FRUIT OIL
Astaxanthin is a naturally occurring red colored carotenoid found in sea foods such as salmon, crab, shrimp, lobster and edible sea- algae. Carotenoids are natural pigments that boost immunity, metabolism and general health. They are commonly found in food. Beta – carotene for instance is orange and is abundant in carrots.
It is astaxanthin that gives salmon its popular pink color, and it is also theorized that astaxanthin is what gives salmon the endurance and stamina to swim upstream against heavy currents. In the human body, astaxanthin is a versatile antioxidant with diverse positive health effects.
Unlike other antioxidants such as vitamins C, D and E, beta – carotene and zeaxanthin, astaxanthin does not become pro – oxidant over time in the body. Thus its health benefits are longer lasting and more sustainable with minimal side effects.
Astaxanthin gac fruit oil as a dietary supplement for humans has been shown to improve blood flow and lower oxidative stress in overweight individuals and smokers.
The powerful anti–oxidant properties of astaxanthin make it perfect for good skin care; this is particularly considering the fact that human skin is exposed to oxidants from within as well as outside the body. Astaxanthin has been shown to reduce effects of skin damage such as wrinkles with extremely positive results.
A 2006 study on rats showed that specimen supplied with regular doses of astaxanthin had reduced levels of oxidants responsible for causing high blood pressure. These rats also had stronger, healthier hearts and more endurance as a result.
In overweight subjects astaxanthin showed an average reduction of 8% in LDL which is the bad cholesterol over a 12-week period of use, taking 6- 18 milligrams daily. This is thought to be a result of more efficient metabolic processes caused by increased anti – oxidation.
Another 2005 study showed positive effects against male infertility following three months of using astaxanthin. 30 men who had previously suffered from infertility showed improved sperm count and prolonged sperm life.
Astaxanthin gac fruit oil is especially recommended for people who lead an active lifestyle such as professional athletes and heavy exercisers. The anti – oxidative properties of astaxanthin have shown to improve muscular and skeletal strength. Astaxanthin also promotes quick cell repair, more efficient metabolism of oxygen and has shown an effect in reducing muscle injuries and shortening the time they take to heal if they occur.
There has been a lot of research being undertaken in relation to cancer treatment. As a powerful antioxidant, astaxanthin shows great ability in protecting healthy cells against the harsh effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy as well as the cancer itself.
What makes astaxanthin a super – oxidant, is its versatility.
The recommended dose of 6-8 milligrams per day is enough to provide the oxidative balance needed for a healthy normal life. Foods rich in this carotene or approved health supplements are a definite dietary recommendation.
