AstaFactor was developed in 2000 when a group of researchers and scientists studied its strong antioxidant properties for farmed salmon at our Kona Salt farm. Their extensive research uncovered the health benefits to humans and lead to the first ever astaxanthin supplement developed for human benefit, AstaFactor.
Studies show that astaxanthin, the active ingredient in AstaFactor, has up to 500 times more antioxidant activity than vitamin E and 10 times more than beta-carotene. Research also indicates that astaxanthin may be up to 10 times more effective than other carotenoids such as canthaxanthin, lutein, lycopene, and zeaxanthin.
Recommended dosage is 12mg (2 softgels) per day.
Studies suggest that Astaxanthin provides the following health benefits:
Promotes Joint Health - Studies suggest that natural Astaxanthin may inhibit inflammation associated with sore muscles and stiff joints. ANTI-AGING Research suggests that astaxanthin may benefit cognition, joints and various parts of the body that commonly deteriorate when getting older.
Boosts Immune System - On-going astaxanthin studies suggest that astaxanthin exhibits potent anti-inflammatory and immune regulating capabilities and may improve the immune defense system by modulating T cell-mediated responses.
Promotes Eye Health - Astaxanthin's structural and functional characteristics make it a promising bioactive compound in the prevention and management of a wide range of eye diseases. Confirmed by several human and animal studies there is a growing body of evidence the beneficial effects of astaxanthin in the prevention, treatment and the significant improvement in the outcomes of diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma and cataracts.
Brain Function - Studies suggest that Astaxanthin may support cognitive function because of its ability to cross the blood brain barrier making it available to the central nervous system including the eyes and brain.
