Astaxanthin may affect endurance and fatigue levels after exercise. Studies in mice have shown that it can increase the body’s use of fatty acids, which helps with endurance and prevents muscle and skeletal damage. However, as yet there is no evidence to support this in humans. Astaxanthin crosses the blood-brain barrier, allowing for a potentially beneficial effect on the brain. Preclinical research suggests that astaxanthin’s powerful antioxidant properties may slow brain aging by increasing levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor in the central nervous system. Clinical studies examining the effects of astaxanthin on cognitive function in older adults have shown improved task performance and working memory. Along with strengthening the immune system, astaxanthin may also help reduce inflammation. In particular, astaxanthim works on reactive oxygen species, reducing proteins that can cause inflammatory diseases such as celiac disease, rheumatoid arthritis, heart disease and diabetes.
