, a red pigment originates in marine algae. Researchers have sought to explore the use of astaxanthin as a topical sunscreen because of its powerful ultraviolet light-absorbing properties.
They soon found, however, that astaxanthin has many additional benefits, including:
- free radical scavenging,
- mitochondrial protection,
- anti-inflammatory effects, and
- protection from glycation.(5-12)
Recent studies show that astaxanthin can rejuvenative skin from within.(3,4,13) Astaxanthin is among the most powerful and versatile marine plant antioxidants known, and as such, it has the ability to scavenge skin-damaging free radicals.(3,12,14)
Astaxanthin is a fat-soluble compound. The challenge to deriving maximum benefits is its normally limited absorption—as low as about 50%.(1,2) Assimilation of astaxanthin is impeded by limited uptake and intestinal degradation.
About Astaxanthin with Phospholipids
Astaxanthin with Phospholipids uses four different phospholipids to facilitate maximum absorption of astaxanthin into the bloodstream, where it is transported to cells throughout the body.
Astaxanthin with Phospholipids combines 4 milligrams of natural astaxanthin with a proprietary blend of phospholipids. By incorporating phospholipids, scientific research shows that absorption may be enhanced several-fold.(2)
