AstaFactor Silver LifestyleRegular price $19.95
AstaFactor was developed in 2000 when a group of researchers and scientists studied its strong antioxidant properties for farmed salmon at our Kona Salt farm. Their extensive research uncovered the health benefits to humans and lead to the first ever astaxanthin supplement developed for human benefit, AstaFactor.
Studies show that astaxanthin, the active ingredient in AstaFactor, has up to 500 times more antioxidant activity than vitamin E and 10 times more than beta-carotene. Research also indicates that astaxanthin may be up to 10 times more effective than other carotenoids such as canthaxanthin, lutein, lycopene, and zeaxanthin.
Recommended dosage is 12mg (2 softgels) per day.
Studies suggest that Astaxanthin provides the following health benefits:
- Promotes Joint Health - Studies suggest that natural Astaxanthin may inhibit inflammation associated with sore muscles and stiff joints. ANTI-AGING Research suggests that astaxanthin may benefit cognition, joints and various parts of the body that commonly deteriorate when getting older.
Boosts Immune System - On-going astaxanthin studies suggest
astaxanthin may help to improve the activity of immune cells, such as T cells and natural killer cells, which play a key role in the body's immune response. It may also help to reduce inflammation and oxidative stress, which can weaken the immune system. In addition, astaxanthin may have a protective effect on the gut microbiome, which is the community of bacteria that lives in the digestive tract. A healthy gut microbiome is important for the proper functioning of the immune system, and astaxanthin may help to promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut.
Promotes Eye Health - Astaxanthin's structural and functional characteristics make it a promising bioactive compound in the prevention and management of a wide range of eye diseases. Astaxanthin may help to reduce oxidative stress and inflammation in the eye, which can cause damage to the retina, the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye. It is thought that astaxanthin may help to protect the retina from damage and may improve visual acuity in people with age-related macular degeneration, a condition that causes damage to the retina.
In addition, astaxanthin may help to improve the circulation of blood in the eye, which can help to reduce the risk of eye fatigue and strain. It may also help to reduce the risk of cataracts, a condition in which the lens of the eye becomes cloudy and causes vision loss.
- Brain Function - Astaxanthin may help to improve cognitive function, including memory, attention, and reaction time. It may also have a protective effect on brain cells and may help to reduce the risk of brain damage caused by inflammation and oxidative stress.
Skin Health - Some studies have suggested that astaxanthin may help to protect the skin from damage caused by UV radiation, pollution, and other environmental factors. It is thought that astaxanthin may help to reduce inflammation in the skin and may also have a protective effect on the skin's collagen and elastin, which are proteins that help to maintain the skin's structure and elasticity. In addition, astaxanthin may help to improve the appearance of the skin by reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. It may also help to improve skin hydration and elasticity, which can help to give the skin a more youthful appearance.
