Mode of actions

Astaxanthin is a pigment found in xanthophyll. It's an antioxidant with anti-inflammatory characteristics, and as a result, it could be used to treat atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. This antioxidant, which has a structure similar to beta-carotene, aids living organisms in quenching, scavenging, and trapping free radicals within its structure. It can not only effectively capture these hazardous poisons, but it can also trap other forms of radicals, such as singlet and triplet oxygen. When a substance goes through a metabolic process, it usually loses an electron (a process that destabilizes the substance). Instead of sacrificing an electron, astaxanthin stabilizes these metabolic toxins radicals by simply adding them to its own double-bonded chain.

It also helps to prevent lipid peroxidation and boosts the antioxidant capacity of other antioxidants in the body. Astaxanthin has the power to prevent and reverse oxidative damage to the entire structure of a cell, as well as to good cholesterol types.
