How Obesity Creates Inflammation
Being overweight and obese is inflammatory. The cellular damage that occurs in relation to obesity (free radicals) can set off an auto immune response in the body which results in chronic inflammation. The long-term result of chronic inflammation can lead to weight related chronic diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer.
Overweight and obese individuals could benefit from increasing the amount of antioxidants in their diets. The damaging free radicals, which are created through lack of exercise, poor diets and inflammation, can be offset with antioxidants. How this works is the antioxidant sacrifices part of its own cellular structure, in order to fix the free radical and make it a healthy cell again. Once this happens, the newly fixed cell can start working properly again, rather than creating more damaging inflammation.
This is why overweight individuals are recommended to have a healthier diet and take more exercise. Not only does this burn calories in order to alleviate the immediate weight problem, but it helps even up the mismatch between free radicals and antioxidants that can lead to trouble later in life.
Valasta produce and promote Astaxanthin, (pronounced Asta-Zan-Thin) It is the world’s strongest natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory supplement. Astaxanthin is 6000 times stronger than vitamin C and 1000 times stronger than aspirin as an anti-inflammatory.
Astaxanthin is a carotenoid (same as you find in carrots) which is derived from micro-algae. It has been proven in over 1000 medical studies to have very strong anti-inflammatory healing abilities through its function as a very strong antioxidant.
So Astaxanthin Can Help Avoid Diseases Related To Obesity But Can It Actually Help Me Lose Weight?
Yes. Astaxanthin has been successful in several independent research studies in being able to lower blood sugar levels, as well as significantly lowering cholesterol. It can assist the body in processing sugar and fats rather than storing as fat in the body. The reason for this is that chronic inflammation causes the body to misfire at a cellular level. When our bodies are inflamed, they cannot perform their various functions properly (this leads to poor health, ailments and diseases). One of the many important functions of our bodies is processing fats and sugars that we eat, storing some as fat and using some as energy. When we are inflamed, this process is impaired, so we end up storing more fat and sugar than we otherwise normally would. This obviously exacerbates the problem of obesity.
We started promoting Valasta as a weight loss supplement after we had so many comments from individuals who had taken Valasta for other inflammatory health issues and then found that they were able to maintain their weight much more easily than before. A welcome side effect of a natural supplement!
ValAsta has helped with many other common inflammatory conditions:
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.
