Krill oil contains high levels of one of the most powerful natural antioxidants called Astaxanthin. Recent studies suggest that astaxanthin has anti-inflammatory action, inhibiting cytokine cascades in a number of trials of cardiovascular health, respiratory health, joint health, athletic performance, and others.
Antioxidants like astaxanthin disarm dangerous free radicals before they have a chance to damage proteins, fats, and the genetic material of cells – damage that ultimately contributes to aging and underlies many disease processes, including cancer, heart disease, cognitive decline, and diabetes.
Astaxanthin has extraordinary antioxidant properties, which has been demonstrated in numerous studies conducted throughout the past decade. Astaxanthin, like other carotenoids, sacrifice themselves in order to protect body cells.
Carotenoids absorb the excited energy of singlet oxygen – a highly reactive form of oxygen that if left unchecked can directly damage fats, proteins, and DNA in the body. By sacrificing itself, astaxanthin prevents surrounding cells from being damaged
