As you get older‚ your body becomes more susceptible to damage from oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is a normal bodily function that occurs when electrons attach to oxygen molecules in the blood. Antioxidants work to mop up excess oxygen molecules so they can't do damage to your DNA and cause diseases to develop.
Antioxidant levels are usually the highest in brightly colored foods: for example‚ carrots are high in beta-carotene‚ which is a well-known antioxidant. Blueberries‚ leafy green kale‚ tomatoes‚ and cherries are some other examples of fresh‚ healthy foods that are packed with antioxidants. Eating a balanced‚ healthy diet rich in vegetables and fruits is important for this reason.
One of the most powerful antioxidants—that you may not have heard of—is astaxanthin. This nutritional wonder is found in a type of algae that’s responsible for giving shrimp‚ lobster‚ salmon‚ and other seafood it’s red and pink coloring. If you don’t consume fish or shellfish regularly‚ you can easily add astaxanthin to your diet by taking it in supplement form.
Pure Encapsulations’ Astaxanthin Softgel Capsules contain 4 mg of astaxanthin. Taking these helps ensure your body gets the antioxidants it needs to keep you healthy.
