Astaxanthin for Fitness

Although exercise is beneficial to our health in many ways, heavy exercise can lead to cellular damage due to the free radicals which are created when we exert our bodies. Antioxidants can combat the free-radicals and this protects the body at a cellular level during and after bouts of heavy exercise. Athletes should focus on taking a strong antioxidant in the same way they focus on protein, carbohydrate and salt in their diet. Astaxanthin has been proven in several independent studies to enhance metabolism, increase performance, aid recovery and also reduce the effect of minor injuries such as stresses and tears as well as more significant injuries due to its role as an anti-inflammatory.

  • Reduces mental fatigue and improves mood state
  • Reduces lactic acid levels after exercise
  • Helps prevent muscle damage and inflammation
  • Reduces exercise-induced free radical production

Is Astaxanthin Safe?

The safety of astaxanthin administered orally was assessed in a medical trial undertaken in healthy adults. Volunteers were administered astaxanthin or placebo for eight-weeks. The authors concluded that healthy adults could safely consume natural astaxanthin.

In another study, high concentrations of astaxanthin were tested with blood taken from volunteers, 8 of whom were taking aspirin and 12 who were not. Even medical grade concentrations of astaxanthin had no adverse effects.

No significant side effects have been reported so far in published human studies in which astaxanthin was administered to humans.

Are there any side effects?

  • Astaxanthin has been classified as a generally safe supplement in the USA.
  • Astaxanthin is 100% natural and has no serious side effects.
