Astaxanthin is a unique carotenoid compound found in abundance in marine environments, particularly in algae. Astaxanthin is what gives red algae its colour and subsequently salmon their pink flesh when they consume the algae. Astaxanthin is considered a far more powerful antioxidant than beta-carotene or vitamin E. Unlike most other antioxidants, astaxanthin is unique in that it does not turn into a free radical itself after quenching one, and can therefore quench numerous radicals in a row. This allows it to protect cell membrane lipids from free radical damage.
The ability of astaxanthin to reduce eye fatigue related to computer usage is well-established. It may also help reduce blood sugar and blood pressure, and may help reduce gastric pain and heartburn related to digestive upset. Several studies have also found astaxanthin to increase muscular endurance, improving sports performance.
