Astaxanthin is a unique carotenoid found in abundance in marine environments, particularly among algae. Astaxanthin has been shown to be 40 times more potent than beta-carotene in quenching singlet oxygen free radicals. Astaxanthin quenches free radicals by adding them to its structure rather than sacrificing an atom or electron, meaning that unlike most antioxidants, astaxanthin is far less likely to become a mild free radical in its own right after quenching one. This enables astaxanthin to trap and quench more free radicals - and of a greater variety - than most other antioxidants. Astaxanthin also supports vision health, Japanese studies have shown that supplementation with astaxanthin cal alleviate asthenopia (eye fatigue) symptoms by 54%. Studies have also demonstrated that astxanthin may be able to assist individuals with type II diabetes, having been associated with a nearly 40% reduction in blood glucose levels in mice. The potential effects of Astaxanthin on dyspepsia (digestive problems in the upper abdominal region) have also been examined. A study involving ten patients with non-ulcerous dyspepsia showed that astaxanthin supplementation reduced gastric pain, heartburn and total clinical symptoms by 66%, 78%, and 53% respectively. Finally, astaxanthin has been examined for its potential ability to support athletic performance, particularly with respect to endurance athletes. In 1998, a six-month randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial among healthy Swedish men found that 4 mg of Astaxanthin daily was associated with a 45% increase in the number of knee bends these men were able to perform.
