Maintaining a healthy blood lipid profile is important for reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease. Excess cholesterol (LDL) and chronic high blood pressure can lead to blood vessel injury, which triggers inflammation, free radical accumulation, and activation of white blood cells.
Both krill oil and AstaReal® Astaxanthin are known to lower LDL and triacylgyceride levels while increasing levels of the “good cholesterol,” HDL. AstaReal® Astaxanthin has also been shown to slow down LDL oxidation ex vivo.
In combination, krill oil and AstaReal® Astaxanthin can support a healthy blood lipid profile, while AstaReal® Astaxanthin has additional benefits for peripheral and capillary blood flow, reducing oxidation of cardiac muscle, neutralizing excess free radicals, and modulating chronic inflammation.
