Don’t get too caught up in how to pronounce it (asta-zan-thin), we know it’s a mouthful. Just remember the first letter, A, as well as the words Amazing and Adapt.
Astaxanthin is a pinkish/reddish pigment that belongs to a group of chemicals called carotenoids. It occurs naturally in algae. Animals that consume the algae, like salmon, red trout, flamingos and shrimp, get their pink color from astaxanthin. We will not turn pink from consuming these foods, but we may benefit from this Amazing ingredient.
It’s also an important ingredient in GPS Adapt.
How does it work?
Astaxanthin is an antioxidant which means it helps reduce oxidation in the body. Oxidation is the gradual aging process that occurs within the cells, all over the body. Oxidative stress is caused by free radicals, and many health problems stem from oxidation.Antioxidants, whose biggest sources are vegetables and fruits, help the body’s natural defense system combat the oxidation process.
A study from Cruzeiro do Sul University and the University of Sao Paulo report that long-term supplementation with astaxanthin delayed the time to exhaustion of lab rats in a swimming test by 29%.1 Other clinical studies with astaxanthin have shown promising results against free radical-promoted neurodegenerative processes and diminished cognition.2
