Growing science behind antioxidants for longer healthspan

20 Jun 2018 --- There is growing support around the potential for astaxanthin and other antioxidants to aid a longer healthspan. “One of the aspects that we are trying to achieve within health & nutrition is to expand the healthspan segment of your life to make it as close as possible to your lifespan. Astaxanthin is a fantastic free radical scavenger, which is something that influences oxidative stress, which is a component of having a deficit of your life. It also interacts beautifully with mitochondria, which are the energy sources in the cell. As you get older these mitochondria become more dysfunctional but astaxanthin can help to protect them,” says Malk Miller, an ambassador for Astareal.
