Astaxanthin protects the phospholipid membranes of cells from oxidative damage. In a recent U.S. study, it demonstrated the ability to cross the blood brain barrier and protect the retina in animals, suggesting its potential for supporting the brain and nervous system from free radical damage. Initial trials with astaxanthin suggest that it may boost the skin‘s natural antioxidant defenses against ultraviolet induced free radicals. In a human clinical evaluation, supplementation with BioAstin astaxanthin for two weeks provided significant antioxidant protection for the skin. In cell cultures, astaxanthin provided greater protection than both beta-carotene and lutein, in part by supporting catalase and superoxide dismutase activity.
Astaxanthin may also moderate the activity of polyamines generated by exposure to sunlight. In one double-blind placebo controlled trial, BioAstin astaxanthin significantly supported joint comfort in human volunteers. The results of another human clinical trial suggest that BioAstin astaxanthin supported knee comfort and joint function after strenuous leg exercises. Subjects in a third study using BioAstin astaxanthin reported enhanced wrist nerve comfort.
