Astaxanthin Vs. OTHER ANTIOXIDANTS
unlike other antioxidants, the structure allows for placement in the cell bilayer membrane
protect cell membranes against free radicals and oxidation
Promote "good" HDL cholesterol
Action of HDL lowering blood cholesterol level is to remove the cholesterol excess from the cells and transporting it to the liver where it is metabolized.
Inhibits the oxidation of "bad" LDL CHOLESTEROL
Clinical studies on the product Astaxin ™ demonstrated that astaxanthin inhibits the oxidation of "bad" LDL cholesterol. Oxidized forms of LDL are absorbed by macrophages present in the wall of blood vessels, then transformed into foam cells, then accumulated in the endothelium of the arteries as plaque.
REDUCES THE LEVEL OF TRIGLYCERIDES IN THE BLOOD
High triglycerides levels in blood is associated with arteriosclerosis and therefore also the risk of heart disease and stroke.
Improves Rheology AND INFLUENCES ON BLOOD PRESSURE
Astaxanthin improves blood flow by increasing the flexibility of erythrocyte membranes.
Metabolism in Diabetes
REDUCES GLUCOSE TOXICITY
It prevents non-enzymatic glycosylation, or the binding of glucose with proteins and the formation of AGEs (advanced glycation end-products) and the degeneration of mitochondrial membranes. Reduces the formation of sorbitol, which appears in the presence of significant concentrations of glucose and free radicals.
PROTECTS PANCREATIC BETA CELLS
It counteracts the destructive effects of free radicals on the sensitive tissues, particularly those that are pathologically impaired ability to regenerate.
THE DIABETES COMPLICATIONS LIMITED
It prevents the complications of diabetes, caused by AGEs, including related glycosylation of myelin in nerve cells, deposition of atherosclerotic plaques in blood vessels and deposits in the glomerular AGE. It also has an impact on the appearance of wrinkles, infertility, and cataracts.
