☝️Astaxanthin – one scary-sounding word, one powerful antioxidant. Although Astaxanthin sounds like it should be a name for an extremely poisonous spider, it can do wonders for your skin!
👉What it is?
Astaxanthin is a carotenoid with powerful antioxidant properties
👉What does it do?
Well, let me ask you one thing: Would you like to have gorgeous looking skin?... A silly question, I know! Who wouldn’t! Then astaxanthin is your ‘guy’!
1. Decreases inflammation:
Latest studies on aging show that chronic inflammation (as small as a constantly runny/blocked nose, or as big as an unexplained fatigue or depression) may lead to premature aging. Well, astaxanthin helps fight these detrimental effects
2. Protects our largest organ:
Astaxanthin has been shown to improve skin’s elasticity, barrier integrity and provide protection from photo aging – not too shabby indeed!
👉How to get it and when?
Both oral and topical supplementations daily
👉What is the best natural source?
1. Microalgae (Haematococcus pluvialis) – good luck finding that in your local grocery store!
2. Wild Pacific salmon, but you would have to consume over 300 grams daily to get potent results.
So next time, when you think about which supplements and moisturizers to use so that your skin stays young and beautiful no matter what, think astaxanthin! ✌️
P.S. You can also find astaxanthin in Younom ELASTICITY Supplement which could be ordered here (www.younom.com/app/order), but PLEASE don't tell anyone! 😉
