Astaxanthin occurs naturally in certain algae and causes the pink or red colour in salmon, trout, lobster, shrimp, and other seafood. This carotenoid pigment and has been shown to be an effective inhibitor of oxidative damage.
Astaxanthin has been taken by those with Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, stroke, high cholesterol, liver diseases, age-related macular degeneration (age-related vision loss), and preventing cancer. It is also used for metabolic syndrome that increases the risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes. It is also used for improving exercise performance, decreasing muscle damage after exercise, and decreasing muscle soreness after exercise. Astaxanthin has been shown to prevent sunburn, to improve sleep, and for carpal tunnel syndrome, dyspepsia, male infertility, symptoms of menopause, and rheumatoid arthritis.
It is one of the few natural agents that can support lean muscle mass in sedentary individuals. It has been shown to attenuate immobilisation-induced muscle atrophy. It does this by inhibiting oxidative stress and proteolysis via three major proteolytic pathways.
