“We are talking about a super-nutrient that has been found to be one of the most potent antioxidants and anti-inflammatories around,” Natural Health Sherpa says referring to astaxanthin.
According to Natural Health Sherpa, experts agree that astaxanthin is beneficial in reducing inflammation, suppressing free radical damage, protecting against LDL cholesterol oxidation, preventing UVB-related sun damage, increasing immune function, increasing HDL cholesterol, preventing eye disease, reducing cancer risk, stabilizing blood sugar levels, improving male fertility, and easing symptoms of a wide variety of neurodegenerative diseases.
Researchers looked at more than 100 studies and concurred that astaxanthin has health potential in a number of areas. This is due to its “potent bioactivities” as an antioxidant, anticancer, anti-diabetic, an anti-inflammatory agent.
Good For The Heart
Oxidation of fatty acids, according to Natural Health Sherpa, is the main culprit in heart disease. “Oxidation can lead to inflammation, which has been linked to a wide range of health conditions, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, and even Alzheimer’s disease.” According to researchers, using astaxanthin supplements can help reduce oxidation of fatty acids.
“There are no significant side effects associated with astaxanthin, though some people have noticed a slight orange color to their bowel movements. The discoloration is safe and usually subsides in time,” says Natural Health Sherpa.
The leading natural health website urges consumers to “give one of the best-kept secrets in alternative medicine a try.”
Natural Health Sherpa provides in-depth, science-based, independent reviews of natural health therapies and remedies that have been proven to be both safe and effective and are backed by good science -- multiple double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized studies. Unfortunately, there are many charlatans making bogus, unfounded claims in the natural health area, so our goal is to separate fact from fiction to pinpoint what actually works.
