The effect and function of astaxanthin
Astaxanthin mainly plays an antioxidant role. Astaxanthin contains active ingredients, which can eliminate free radicals in cells, enhance the regeneration ability of cells, maintain the balance of the body, reduce the accumulation of senescent cells, and keep people young.
- Protection against ULTRAVIOLET radiation
Ultraviolet radiation is an important cause of epidermal photoaging and skin cancer. Astaxanthin’s strong antioxidant ability may make it a potential photoprotective agent, which can effectively eliminate free radicals causing skin aging, protect cell membrane and mitochondrial membrane from oxidative damage, and prevent skin photoaging.
- Relieve exercise fatigue
Studies have shown that astaxanthin can act as an antioxidant to inhibit the oxidative damage of free radicals to the body.
Oral astaxanthin can also enhance aerobic metabolism, increase muscle strength and muscle endurance, quickly relieve exercise fatigue, reduce delayed muscle pain after strenuous exercise.
- Protect the cardiovascular system
Astaxanthin can clear cholesterol in the body, increase vascular permeability, promote human blood circulation, reduce the occurrence of some cardiovascular diseases, astaxanthin can also act on the human brain, improve brain thinking ability, make people more intelligent.
- Improve immunity
Astaxanthin can significantly affect the immune function of animals. In the presence of antigens, it can significantly promote the ability of spleen cells to produce antibodies, enhance the role of T cells, and stimulate the production of immunoglobulin in the body.
Astaxanthin has a strong activity of inducing cell division and plays an important role in immune regulation.
- Inhibit diabetes and kidney disease
Astaxanthin is the only substance found so far that can effectively prevent diabetes and kidney disease. Astaxanthin mainly protects the basement membrane of glomeruli directly and prevents the free radicals produced by high blood sugar from damaging the basement membrane.
In addition, it can also fight against free radicals in renal tubular epithelial cells, protect the normal transport of glucose and phosphorus in renal tubular cells, thereby preserving ATP and sodium-potassium ATpase, which are important substances, and ensure the renal blood flow is not affected.
- Protect the eyes and central nervous system
Studies have shown that astaxanthin can easily cross the blood-brain barrier and cell membrane, effectively prevent retinal oxidation and photosensitive cell damage, especially macular degeneration is more significant than lutein.
It has a protective effect on the central nervous system, especially on the brain, and effectively treats central nervous system injuries such as ischemia-reperfusion injury, spinal cord injury and Parkinson’s disease.
Raw materials for burns and scalds: Arbutin is the main component of new-type burns and scalds. It is characterized by rapid pain relief, strong anti-inflammatory effect, rapid elimination of redness and swelling, fast healing, and no scars.
Dosage form: spray or smear.
Raw materials for intestinal anti-inflammatory drugs: good sterilization and anti-inflammatory effects, no toxic side effects.
In fact, the main effect of arbutin is skin lightening to make the skin look youthful and beautiful. The use of arbutin in European and American countries uses this function. With the expiration of more and more patents, arbutin, which was only used in high-end cosmetics in the past, is becoming more and more popular.
