I Use Astaxanthin When I Fly To Protect Myself From Radiation Damage

Story at-a-glance -

  • Astaxanthin is thought to be the most powerful antioxidant found in nature. According to recent research it may even provide protection against gamma radiation-induced DNA damage
  • Previous research has demonstrated that it can act as a potent “internal sunblock” to protect your skin against sun damage and photo aging effects
  • Contrary to other carotenoids, astaxanthin cannot function as a pro-oxidant, even when present in high amounts, making it highly beneficial. It’s also unique in that it can protect the entire cell—both the water- and fat-soluble parts—from damage
  • While you can easily obtain most of the carotenoids you need from your diet, it may be difficult to get therapeutic amounts of astaxanthin through food alone. You’d have to consume three-quarters of a pound of wild-caught sockeye salmon, which contains the highest amounts of astaxanthin of all the marine foods, to receive the same amount of astaxanthin you’d get in a 4mg capsule if you were to take a supplement
