(NaturalNews) Astaxanthin is widely considered one of the most powerful antioxidants on the planet. With well over 1,000 scientific papers, scientists have discovered how this incredible carotenoid molecule can improve your energy; prevent blindness and cellular inflammation - the root cause of chronic disease.
But, there is an imposter on the market and it should be avoided at all costs.
On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour - Jonathan Landsman and Bob Capelli, a leading expert on the health benefits of astaxanthin will talk about how astaxanthin can improve the health of your eyes, brain and overall immune system. This program includes a serious warning about synthetic (toxic) astaxanthin plus much more.
Avoid toxic astaxanthin from farm-raised seafood. Keep in mind, the red color inside 'wild' seafood like shrimp, lobster and salmon comes from natural astaxanthin. But, the vast majority of supermarkets (and restaurants) sell farm-raised salmon - which is artificially colored with synthetic astaxanthin from petrochemicals.
Are you looking for more energy? Chronic fatigue, very often, can be viewed as a deficiency in antioxidants. Simply put, all of our bodily functions require a release of energy; which, in turn, creates lots of harmful free radicals. But, which a rich supply of antioxidants coming from astaxanthin, vitamin D and C (to name a few) - these free radicals get neutralized.
In other words, for sustained energy (all day) - we must minimize the threat of free radical damage.
Astaxanthin, in particular, has been found to improve physical strength and endurance; speed up muscle recovery time after exercise and has quickly become a favorite amongst intelligent athletes. Unfortunately, diet alone is not enough to receive the full benefits of astaxanthin.
Is it safe to supplement with astaxanthin? How much is enough? And, what about Fukushima - has it contaminated the world's supply of astaxanthin? These questions - plus much more - get answered on the next NaturalNews Talk Hour. Join us - by clicking the link below.
First of all, astaxanthin is great at reducing physical pain and minimizing cellular inflammation. In fact, many health experts would suggest that astaxanthin is better than prescription pain killers because it has no (negative) side effects. Many of today's nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can be addictive and cause digestive heartburn and bleeding.
Second, lots of research suggests that astaxanthin helps to prevent ulcers from a variety of causes such as, NSAIDs, stress and acid reflux.
And, finally, let's not forget the fact that natural astaxanthin provides plenty of essential nutrients for the brain. This is probably the most important reason to consume astaxanthin - when you consider that 1 in every 3 seniors die with some form of dementia or Alzheimer's disease. In fact, Alzheimer's is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States.
In 2013, Alzheimer's disease costs the United States over $200 billion. It's time to talk about natural solutions for a nutrient deprived society.

For over 25 years, Bob Capelli has been involved in the field of natural healing and herbology. After graduating from Rutgers University with a degree in liberal arts, Bob spent four years traveling and working in developing countries in Asia and South America, where he learned about and developed a deep respect for the medicinal power of plants. Upon returning to the United States, Bob began working in the natural supplement industry where he has remained for the last twenty-two years.
Bob is the co-author of a book on spirulina called Spirulina:Nature's SuperFood and is the lead author of a book on astaxanthin called Natural Astaxanthin: King of the Carotenoids - as well as several articles for trade journals and scientific papers for peer-reviewed technical journals.
Eliminate oxidative stress and disease. Conventional medicine and the mainstream media refuse to expose the truth about astaxanthin plus many other life-supportive nutrients. Find out how you can prevent, even reverse chronic pain and disease on the next NaturalNews Talk Hour with Jonathan Landsman.
