REVEALED: The world’s most powerful age-fighting nutrient
You know what happens when something SOUNDS too good to be true.
It’s usually bunk, right?
So, I get the skepticism over astaxanthin, a potent little age-defying, disease-fighting antioxidant.
It has just one thing going against it.
It sounds too good to be true!
Now, new research reveals the truth about astaxanthin – and it just might blow you away.
It not only confirms these incredible benefits and then some… it also does something even more important.
It shows HOW and WHY this one humble nutrient can pack so many benefits inside one funny name.
This one starts with a condition that also has a funny name: mitochondrial dysfunction.
But what happens when you’ve got it is no laughing matter.
Remember how your cellphone used to hold a charge all day long? Over time, the battery holds less power and the energy vanishes faster.
Our bodies work much the same.
Now, if you’re like most folks, you find yourself needing a charge midway through the day.
That’s a little like what’s happening inside your cells. The mitochondria are essentially the batteries inside every cell, providing the power they need both to function and to defend themselves from oxidative stress.
Like your cellphone battery, the mitochondrial battery loses power over time. In some cases, that energy-sapping loss of power strikes due to genetics or aging.
When cells lose power, their aging process accelerates even more.
And this form of dysfunction is a root cause of nearly every chronic disease -- from neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s to inflammatory conditions, heart problems, metabolic issues, diabetes, and more.
Well, just like you can recharge your cellphone, you can recharge your body’s cells.
And the new study shows how.
A potent little nutrient called astaxanthin can essentially reverse mitochondrial dysfunction.
It works by increasing antioxidant activity inside every cell, helping them fight off mitochondrial dysfunction and giving them the energy they need to battle oxidative stress and aging.
The main problem with astaxanthin is getting it.
Unless you’re a whale, it’s probably not a big part of your diet, since the best sources are krill and algae.
You can also find some in salmon, which gets its pink color from the krill it eats, but that hue is not always a guarantee.
Farmed fish are fed color pellets to dye the flesh, so you won’t get any astaxanthin at all, no matter how pink they may look.
That makes the best source a supplement. You’ll find it available both on its own and as part of antioxidant blends.
