Take Good Care of Your EYES: The VITAL Benefits of Astaxanthin

The Importance and Benefits of Astaxanthin

What Krill Looks Like - Pink, Tiny & Shrimpy:

The colour of these shrimp-like crustaceans which feed mainly on phytoplankton, is due the presence of carotenoid pigments such as Astaxanthin.  Astaxanthin is in fact a Super-carotenoid, and labelled "King of the carotenoids", and a Super-antioxidant (cf. video below.)

Krill Oil is Rich in Astaxanthin

Health Tips Summary: As a general rule consume plenty of green vegetables and also antioxidants to mop up the free radicals, for skin, eye health, and to keep younger longer, etc. Astaxantin is 6000x stronger than Vitamin C and 550 times stronger than Vitamin E in its "singlet, oxygen quenching capacity" ... in other words Astaxanthin is very powerful as an antioxidant and outperforms Vitamin C, E and other antioxidants by a long shot, which is why it is SO GOOD for your body.

Make sure it is sourced from marine algae, extracted using toxic-free processes, and also that oxygen is not introduced during the whole process because that would negate its powerful benefits. In other words ensure the manufacturer has applied the highest quality standards when manufacturing Krill Capsules. By the way, 1000 mgs of Krill oil provides a generous and reliable source of Astaxanthin for people who are deficient in antioxidants, so this represents very good value.

FAQ's: Astaxanthin (Super-Carotenoid) - VG Video!

More Health Tips: Astaxanthin provides many other benefits in the areas of brain-care (cf. dementia, Alzheimers), heart-care (cf. heart disease), joint-care (cf. inflammation), eye-care (cf. cataracts, macular degeneration) - in other words, it is associated with a whole host of health benefits! Watch the excellent video-interview with Dr. Robert Corish above, as he replies to the FAQ's on Astaxanthin.

Astaxanthin is cumulative, so you can always decrease future doses once you have treated your immediate deficiency in antioxidants (which many people suffer from, without knowing). Nb: Regularly eating salmon does not guarantee your intake of Astaxanthin because you need to know where your salmon is coming from - farmed salmon is NOT the same as wild salmon! Experts will advice you to eat WILD salmon if you are going to use salmon as a source of Astaxanthin. The best source of Astaxanthin is unquestionably - Krill Oil

My personal experience: I started Krill Oil about two months ago, taking two or more capsules a day and I find that my hair is glossier.  It's fishier than fish-liver oil capsules only if you burp, but that's not a problem at all, given its huge benefits. I take one capsule at bedtime to maximise cellular repair and will report back further changes later. (Blog author - 30/8/2013).
