Each day, we are exposed to free radicals, from pollutants in our air to the free radicals naturally produced within our bodies. This is where Astaxanthin (pronounced asta-zan-thin) comes in. Astaxanthin is a carotenoid responsible for the reddish pigment in some algae and lobster. Astaxanthin is known for its powerful antioxidant effects and has been shown to be a superior free radical quencher. Our Astaxanthin products feature AstaReal Astaxanthin, which has the utmost standard for purity and quality. Unlike other carotenoids, Astaxanthin does not become a pro-oxidant which means that even with extreme oxidative stress, it doesn’t create more free radicals from itself.
Free Radicals and Oxidative Stress
Let’s talk about the relationship between free radicals and oxidative stress. Free radicals are atoms that have lost an electron leading them to “steal” one from their neighbor if you will. This causes a chain reaction that can only be halted when an antioxidant is introduced. Without nourishing our bodies with antioxidants, oxidative stress results.
