Astaxanthin is a potent antioxidant! Antioxidants are known to protect against harmful free radical damage. It is stronger than both Vitamin E and CoQ10. Astaxanthin may support healthy joints and tendons, support healthy eyes, strengthen immunity against disease, promote cardiovascular health, promote anti-aging through healthy cellular turnover, supple skin, skin protection during sun exposure, and boost energy levels. Also, may help with exercise recovery time.
A study done in 2005 found astaxanthin to positively impact male fertility. This double-blind study looked at 30 men who previously were infertile after taking this supplement for 3 months.
Researchers saw increases in sperm characteristics, like count and motility, and over-all improved fertility in the group after receiving a strong dosage of astaxanthin. This was a small-scale study, so more evidence and research is needed to support this claim.
