Astaxanthin is a carotenoid, a chemical found normally in particular plants and animals. Astaxanthin provides salmon and lobster their red color, and flamingo feathers their pink tone. Astaxanthin can minimize swelling. Lab research has found that a remove from algae that makes astaxanthin reduced the development of breast and skin cancer cells. Astaxanthin might assist the heart in a number of ways, too. It might additionally help protect heart muscle mass from damages from lack of oxygen. Astaxanthin may decrease the growth of H. pylori microorganisms, which cause peptic ulcers. Supplement manufacturers may suggest varying amounts of astaxanthin for different purposes. Most of the small research studies to date have used in between 2 mg and 12 mg daily. One of the biggest sources of astaxanthin remains in particular types of aquatic algae. Astaxanthin is found in a number of types of fish and shellfish, including: Salmon; Rainbow trout; Shrimp; Lobster. 4 ounces of sockeye salmon contains about 4. 5 milligrams of astaxanthin.
