A POWERFUL COMBINATION OF INGREDIENTS FOR A STRONGER IMMUNITY AND PROTECTION AGAINST OXIDATIVE STRESS!
- Vitamin C
One sachet (3g) contains astaxanthin, vitamin C, zinc and selenium.
From the natural source of microalgae Haematococcus pluvialis. Proven strongest antioxidant.
Zinc and selenium
contribute to the normal function of the immune system and contributeto the protection of cell constituents from oxidative damage
contributes to the normal function of the immune system. It reduces fatigue and exhaustion, contributes to normal collagen production, contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism, contributes to the protection of cell constituents from oxidative stress.
Exhaustion, an alarm signal!
The oxidative stress symptoms:
- Fatigue, nervousness
- Accelerated loss of strength and lethargy
- Loss of motivation
What is oxidative stress?
Under the influence of numerous factors such as viral infections, smoking, alcohol,
unhealthy food, stress at work, chronic diseases, UV radiation, pollution...some changes
occur in the healthy cells of our body
Free oxygen radicals are formed. These are unstable molecules because they have lost one electron. They attack other healthy molecules, taking an electron from them, and that is how the new free oxygen radicals are created. This chain reaction is called oxidative stress.
Long-term observed, oxidative stress can lead to serious illnesses – such as cancer, autoimmune diseases, neurological degenerative diseases, CVD, as well as accelerated aging, impaired fertility and inflammation
What are antioxidants?
Antioxidants are powerful molecules which can prevent the oxidation of other molecules, by donating one more electrons to a free oxygen radical, thus stabilizing it. They also prevent the onset of oxidative stress that causes cell damage.
They have a triple role:
- Prevent the creation of new Free radicals
- Neutralize already formed Free radicals
- Repair cell damages caused by Free radicals
It has been scientifically proven that ASTAXANTHIN is the most potent antioxidant
What is astaxanthin?
Astaxanthin belongs to the class of carotenoids. It is a red pigment produced through the synthesise in the microalgae. Humans and animals cannot syntesise astaxanthin but ingest it with food
Astaxanthin which can be found in ASTAX+3 direct powder is a highly purified form of natural astaxanthin obtained from microalga Haematococcus pluvialis, which contains the highest levels of natural astaxanthin.
It is cultivated in the unpolluted desert area, Arava, Israel, with the use of solar energy only.
In addition to its antioxidative effect, astaxanhtin has other important roles:
IT IMPROVES THE PRODUCTION OF ANTIBODIES
After 90 days of administration, astaxanthin leads to an increase in the levels of salivary IgA antibodies. These antibodies have a crucial role in immune function of the mucous membrane of the mouth, nose, eyelids, upper respiratory tract and lungs.
IT ACTIVATES LYMPHOCYTES AND STRENGTHENS THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
After 8 weeks of administration, astaxanthin leads to an increase in the proliferation of T and B lymphocytes upon stimulation
IT HAS AN ANTI-INFLAMMATORY EFFECT
Astaxanthin reduces the level of C reactive protein (CRP), which is the major marker of inflammation
That’s way astaxanthin:
- Helps regulate blood pressure and cholesterol level in blood
- Improves skin hydration and elasticity, as well as slows down its aging
- Improves vision and protects the eye against macular degeneration and cataracts
- Improves mental abilities (memory and learning)
- Reduces joint pain and improves its mobility
- Increases the quantity and quality of sperm cells
Astaxanthin is a lipophilic antioxidant, which means that it is active in lipid environments – cell membranes and membranes of organelles.
It extends through the membrane, and thus provides antioxidant protection to the entire cell – both the inner wall and the outer wall of the membrane, as well as the intermembrane space.
EFFICIENT SKIN PROTECTION
When the skin is exposed to sunlight, it is exposed to UV radiation (UVA and UVB radiation) which damages the skin by creating free radicals and thus damages the elastic fibres that make it up makes the skin firm, which consequently causes the skin to look expressionless and tired, and also leads to formation of wrinkles.
Under the influence of the sun, there is the appearance of free radicals and the development of oxidative stress, which continues it damages the DNA itself and causes the following:
- premature aging of the skin
- increased skin pigmentation (melasma, age spots, sun spots)
- sun allergy
Due to its antioxidant abilities astaxanthin:
- protects the skin from harmful solar radiation
- increases the elasticity and texture of the skin and has an anti-aging effect
- reduces the appearance of fine lines and age spots
Pour the content of one sachet directly into
the mouth and allow it to dissolve. Take once a day.
