Astaxanthin for Glowing Skin

Radiant, vibrant, glowing skin.. we all want it! Most people try to improve the look of their skin from the outside, but the real key to youthful, beautiful skin is building from the inside out! Astaxanthin, found in wild sock eye salmon, krill, shrimp, other crustaceans and microalgae, is a powerful antioxidant that can improve the health and appearance of your skin. Astaxanthin, also known as the King of the Carotenoids, is more than 50 times more powerful than beta-carotene and has many health promoting benefits, not just for skin but for protection against cellular damage overall. Here, in Colorado, our active, outdoor lifestyle really takes a toll on our skin. Skin damage can occur from exposure to the elements - sun, wind, lack of humidity and pollution but is also affected by oxidative stress from our active lifestyles. Oxidative damage is caused by free radicals which causes the collagen in our skin to thin and wrinkle. A diet high in antioxidants, such as Vitamin C and E, selenium and astaxanthin, can prevent premature aging. Many scientific studies have reported significant skin improvement with the supplementation of natural astaxanthin. Supplementing 6 mg of astaxanthin a day has shown improvement in crow’s feet, age spot size, elasticity, skin texture, moisture content, acne and overall health of the outer layer of skin! If you are looking to do something to support the health of your skin, consider supplementing 4 to 6 mg of astaxanthin a day. You should see improvements within 8 weeks. I recommend that you avoid synthetic astaxanthin and take a natural form, such as one derived from the microalgea, Haematococcus pluvialis. Love the skin your in!
