Antioxidant: Astaxanthin has an extremely high antioxidant capability. A study has found astaxanthin to improve blood flow and lower antioxidative stress in overweight people. [1]

Detoxification: The supplementation of astaxanthin can increase the abundance of bacteria that promote hepatic xenobiotic biodegradation and metabolism which results in detoxification and protects the liver from injury. [2]

Boosted Immunity: Astaxanthin plays a major role in the modulation of the immune response. A study has found that astaxanthin modulates in vitro lymphocytic immune response and increases the production of cytokines that fight off the infectious agents. [3]

Healthier Skin: Due to the high amount of antioxidants, astaxanthin protects the skin cells from oxidative stress and keeps the skin youthful. They can be used topically to maintain skin moisture, smooth wrinkles, and make age spots smaller.

Anti-cancer: The anticancer properties of astaxanthin is mainly due to reduced lipid peroxidation and DNA damage. It also downregulates the pro-inflammatory cytokines in the body. [4]

Heart Health: Generally oxidative stress and inflammation contribute to cardiovascular disease caused by atherosclerosis. Antioxidants in astaxanthin can decrease the level of oxidative stress stopping the progression of atherosclerosis. [5]
