All Natural & Organic Astaxanthin Powder 100g
What is Micro Wholefoods Astaxanthin?
Micro Wholefoods All Natural & Organic Astaxanthin Powder 100g is a blood-red pigment and is produced naturally in the freshwater microalgae (Haematococcus pluvialis) and the yeast fungus Xanthophyllomyces dendrorhous (also known as Phaffia). When the algae is stressed by lack of nutrients, increased salinity, or excessive sunshine, it creates astaxanthin.
Astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant with broad health implications and unlike other antioxidants, such as beta carotene, zeaxanthin, vitamin E, C, D, and selenium, astaxanthin never becomes pro-oxidant in the body.
Astaxanthin is a potent anti-inflammatory and pain reliever, astaxanthin reduces the inflammatory compounds that drive many chronic diseases. Even though it is 100 percent natural, astaxanthin works like some prescription analgesics, but without the risk of addiction, GI bleeds or heartburn. More specifically, astaxanthin blocks COX-2 enzymes just like Celebrex, the blockbuster drug prescribed for osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis, acute pain, and monthly dysmenorrhea. In fact, astaxanthin works well with Celebrex - it would be wise to take both together if you want to and if your doctor approves of astaxanthin.
Natural astaxanthin not only affects the COX 2 pathway, it suppresses serum levels of nitric oxide, interleukin 1B, prostaglandin E2, C Reactive Protein (CRP) and TNF-alpha (tumour necrosis factor alpha), and all of this has been proven. Natural astaxanthin was shown to reduce CRP by more than 20 percent in only eight weeks; there is not a prescription drug I know of that does that! Even the American Heart Association claims CRP is a key indicator of heart disease.
