Natural Health Marketing, a UK based Natural Health company selling high quality Natural Health products, is now supplying a super powerful antioxidant that may protect against Age Related Macular Degeneration and premature skin aging. It is one of the few antioxidants that can cross the blood/brain barrier and is therefore beneficial to eye health. Research has found that Astaxanthin protects against singlet oxygen damage, singlet oxygen is a toxic oxygen species that is generated in the skin in reaction to ultra violet radiation from the sun, damaging the skin and eyes. Many exciting findings were released at this conference, confirming Astaxanthin as one of the most important natural health supplements ever discovered.

Scientific research conducted st Fuji Chemical Industry Co. Ltd. in Japan has uncovered some remarkable health benefits for this new antioxidant called Astaxanthin. These suggest that Astaxanthin may have an important role in preventing Macular degeneration (the degeneration of the center of the eye, affecting vision), premature skin aging and Metabolic Syndrome.

Age UK, the leading UK charity for older people, reports on their website that over 500,000 people suffer from Age Related Macular Degeneration in the UK. This affects their quality of life and consumes a sizable portion of the annual budget of the NHS.

Metabolic Syndrome is a set of medical disorders that, in concert, increase the risk of developing cardiovascular disease and diabetes. All of which are common age related diseases.

The 21st Annual Meeting on Carotenoid Research held on September 6th and 7th 2007 at
the media center, Osaka University, Japan announced that researchers at Fuji and Osaka Universities had discovered a number of startling health benefits of this amazing supplement.

They found that Astaxanthin was 800 times better that CoQ10, 75 times better than Alpha Lipoic Acid, 500 times better than Green Tea, and 6,000 times better than Vitamin C at quenching the active oxygen species responsible for susceptibility to ultra violet rays, causing skin and eye damage. It may therefore play an important role in slowing the onset of these conditions or preventing them altogether.

Other findings suggest the importance of Astaxanthin for energy, speedier recovery from heavy exercise, prevention of Type 2 Diabetes and weight loss.
