is one of the causes that lead to various diseases such as heart disease, cancer, hypertension, diabetes, autoimmune diseases, degeneration of cells in the body, including skin known as wrinkles or premature aging.
What are free radicals... how are free radicals are formed?
'Free radical’ are produced in our body naturally during many different metabolic processes including the conversion of food into energy, which at the same time, free radicals are also produced in consequence like a waste from an industrial plant. During our inhalation, oxygen is also converted into free radicals. However, if our body produces too many free radicals till they get out of balance, those free radicals will come back to attack the cells of our body, leading to various diseases as mentioned above. Moreover, there are free radicals that we encountered from the external environment such as air pollution, dust, cigarette smoke, car exhaust and industrial smoke, ultraviolet radiation (UV) from sunlight as well as grilled food and stress from work. All of them can stimulate more free radicals and have a direct impact on health. Hence, the cause of premature aging and wrinkles is inevitable from the effects of excessive free radicals. Currently, medical science focuses on anti-aging with antioxidants that has the property of capturing and stabilizing free radicals to prevent them from destroying cells in the body, slower the level of cell destruction, which is another way to slow down aging. Our body can produce many types of antioxidants. But because of the deterioration that occurs with age, the production of such antioxidants is reduced, coupling with an exposure of free radicals from various external factors, therefore, we should eat foods that contain antioxidants to protect cells from damage.
Astaxanthin, the most powerful antioxidant.
Astaxanthin is a type of antioxidant that the body cannot produce on its own. It is obtained from red food sources such as salmon, shrimp, crab and lobster. Astaxanthin is most commonly found in red algae, Heamatococcus pluvialis. Astaxanthin is an antioxidant that belongs to the group of carotenoids. It is a red substance that dissolves well in fat and with a special unique structural formula, it has the ability to protect cell membranes both internally and externally in every part of the body. Therefore, it has superior properties than any other antioxidants. Many people called Astaxanthin as “Nature's Most Powerful Antioxidant”.
Remark: The antioxidant activity of astaxanthin is 500 times stronger than vitamin E, 560 times stronger than green tea, 800 times stronger than Co Q10, 3,000 times stronger than resveratrol, 6,000 times stronger than vitamin C.
With its role as a strong and excellent antioxidant, it has various benefits for the body as follows:
There are many astaxanthin on the market, but which one should you consider?
Judging from a credible source with standardized algae cultivation. AstaReal is an astaxanthin produced from Haematococcus pluvialis, cultured under a closed system which produced the highest quality, purity and stability of red algae, therefore obtaining quality astaxanthin. In addition, AstaReal is a raw material that has been supported by various health research studies which can increase more confidence in its quality. And what’s more that can’t be missed is the production standard which is another thing that shouldn't be overlooked to ensure quality, free from contaminants.
