Joint Health

Joint pain and other age-related degenerative conditions are realities of life. These often painful conditions are generally caused by oxidative stress resulting in inflammation (1). The problem is that most treatments focus on anti-inflammatories to help relieve pain, but don’t deal with the underlying problem – free radicals that cause the initial oxidative stress.

Studies in humans and in vitro have shown that red algae astaxanthin reduces various inflammatory responses known to cause pain and inflammation (2; 3). Furthermore, astaxanthin has been shown to lower inflammation in elderly dogs (because pets need healthy joints too!) (4). The results showed that astaxanthin improved mitochondrial function. alleviating oxidative damage to cellular DNA and protein.

The results are in – astaxanthin can be a powerful ally in overall joint health.
