The (Regenurex) Recovery Advantage
Soccer is the most closely followed sport in the world, and therefore is the world's sport. A study in Europe looked at the effect of astaxanthin supplementation on 40 young elite soccer players in Europe.
The study was randomized and placebo controlled; spanning 90 days of supplementation with 4mg of astaxanthin per day for the treatment group. Results showed significant improvements in those taking astaxanthin in inflammation levels, immune system function and, most importantly muscle recuperation for the athletes.
The researchers concluded that astaxanthin “attenuates muscle damage, thus preventing inflammation induced by rigorous physical training.” They hypothesized that the mechanism of action may be that astaxanthin “protects the cell membranes against free radicals generated during heavy exercise, thus preserving the functionality of muscle cells.”
