Who would have thought the rosy pink pigment found in your favorite lobster and shellfish would contain a secret powerful anti aging antioxidant known as astaxanthin (asta-zan-thee-en), with amazing skin health benefits that rival the effectiveness of a Botox injection.
Since 2009 Botox injections are the most requested cosmetic procedure by American women ages (32-65) according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery with more than 2.5 million injections performed.
When polled women stated an overwhelming desire to look younger was the main reason why they opted for Botox. And who doesn’t want to look younger?
With 50 becoming the new 40 and 40 now being the new 30, the pressure is on for women (and men) to look younger and reverse aging by any means necessary, including having painful invasive cosmetic injections and procedures done on a regular basis.
A regular Botox session costs $500-$700 and has to be completed on an average of every six months.That means yearly you could spend over $1400 – not counting the pain, discomfort, and side effects that are part of injecting a deadly toxin into your delicate facial skin.
The anti aging antioxidant goldmine called Astaxanthin found in your favorite pink hued crustaceans (crab, shrimp, lobster) and wild salmon is 500 times more potent than skin nourishing vitamin E.
Astaxanthin is derived from the algae Haematococcus pluvialis commonly eaten by salmon, flamingos, and crustaceans and is responsible for creating their pink coloring.
In a joint study from Washington State University and Inha University in Korea, the findings discovered that astaxanthin was found to be “a bio-active natural carotenoid that may be important to human health”.
An Anti Aging Antioxidant Stronger than Vitamin C
As part of the carotenoid family of antioxidants,astaxanthin protects the entire cell membrane and skin tissues by rejuvenating your skin from the inside and out.
Found to be 6,000 times stronger and more powerful than Vitamin C in antioxidant properties.
The initial health and anti-aging benefits of astaxanthin were discovered to reduce a marker of DNA damage that contributes to aging, inflammation, and provides anti-aging defenses to your skin.
Astaxanthin exerts previously undiscovered potent antioxidant properties in improving the appearance of your skin by soothing inflammation.
Why is Reducing Inflammation So Important to Looking Younger?
