What is Astaxanthin?
These improvements were associated with a 33% decrease in the circulating levels of malondialdehyde (MDA) and a 59% reduction in the levels of isoprostane (4). Both MDA and isoprostane are indicators of lipid peroxidation, which is the oxidative breakdown of lipids caused by free radicals. Supporting these findings, studies have confirmed that Astaxanthin has a direct effect on lipid peroxidation in cell membranes.
