In their newest video HealthNutritionNews.org reviews the superior antioxidant astaxanthin and talks about the health benefits it provides. With the power to protect the eyes, skin, joints and central nervous system as well as to boost immunity, reduce inflammation, and improve brain function it is one of the most effective antioxidants to consume. People can get their daily astaxanthin dosages through diet or supplementation.
Naturally astaxanthin is found in orange and red fruits and vegetables as well as dark leafy greens, wild salmon, trout, and krill. Many diets high these foods promote health and reduce the effects of aging but getting the recommended astaxanthin dosage each day would require an individual to consume pounds of these foods daily. On the surface it would seem so much easier, even more efficient, to take and over the counter astaxanthin supplement.
Health Nutrition News reveals some alarming results in recent research which have shown some high-dose astaxanthin supplementation to actually have negative effects on health. The key words are “high-dose” – which due to the exploding popularity of this antioxidant many cheaper brands are providing a product that has not been thoroughly researched. There is no reason to take astaxanthin as a single supplement, but it is beneficial when it is included into a dietary supplement.
HealthNutritionNews.org recommends omega three supplements that also contain astaxanthin. They explain that research is showing omega-3 daily supplements to be even more important to your health than taking a daily multivitamin.
In the video it is clarified this specific antioxidant is inherently found in krill oil supplements and would not only reduce inflammation but also provide the body with effective omega-3 fatty acids EPA & DHA which deliver the vast majority of health benefits. It is indicated throughout the video that when looking for krill oils with astaxanthin it is important to only consider a supplement that provides higher levels of DHA to ensure the greatest health benefits. Another important thing to look for is that the supplement has both a process that can guarantee it is free from rancidity and deliver increased absorption of astaxanthin by the body.
Antioxidant foods should be a strong component of any balanced nutrition plan. Despite the antioxidants found in vegetables and fruit, however, they exist in naturally low concentrations alongside other nutrients that can also promote good health. Even those who do their best to follow a healthy diet could likely benefit from taking a supplement as insurance against nutritional gaps in their diet. In order to receive the optimal health benefits it is suggested individuals avoid single supplements and look at omega-3 supplements that contain astaxanthin like krill oil.
