The health benefits of astaxanthin apply wherever our bodies may experience damage from free radicals. Free radicals can accumulate during exercise, exposure to sunlight, stress, or in the presence of environmental pollutants. As we age, our bodies’ natural defenses against free radicals declines and can get overwhelmed by an abundance of free radicals. One way we can combat the natural decline of our bodies’ immune defenses is by taking dietary antioxidants. Astaxanthin is one of the strongest antioxidants available to help restore our body’s antioxidant balance.
Zeaxanthin and Lutein are not only found in many vegetables, but also in the lens, retina, and macula of our eyes. These two nutrients are important carotenoids and potent antioxidants that are typically taken together. Studies suggest that high levels of both in the eye tissue have been linked to better vision.
Zeaxanthin and Lutein defend our bodies against free radicals, protect the proteins, fats, and DNA from stressors, and can even help recycle glutathione, another important antioxidant in our bodies. Their antioxidant properties may also reduce the effects of bad cholesterol, decreasing plaque buildup in the arteries and reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Following a diet that is rich in Zeaxanthin and Lutein may help combat and prevent age-related eye diseases as one study found that people with goods rich in zeaxanthin were only half as likely to get cataracts. These nutrients act as a natural sunblock against UV rays by absorbing excess light energy and are thought to be protective for our eyes against harmful blue light.
Zeaxanthin and Lutein have also been shown to slow the progress of existing macular degeneration, showing both preventative and reparative properties.
Turmeric is a plant in the ginger family with a stem that is used both as a culinary spice and as traditional medicine. Historically, turmeric has been used in Indian and Eastern Asian medical systems to treat disorders of the skin, upper respiratory tract, joints, and digestive system. Today, turmeric as a dietary supplement has shown to be beneficial for a variety of conditions, including arthritis, digestive disorders, respiratory infections, allergies, liver disease, depression, and more.
The primary active component(s) of turmeric, which is responsible for most of turmeric’s health benefits is the molecule, curcumin, and its closely related substances called curcuminoids. This molecule gives turmeric its characteristic yellow color and is a natural antioxidant with anti-inflammatory benefits. Curcumin has also shown possible benefits related to slowing the aging process, preventing Alzheimer’s disease, and even depression.
A past study suggests that with the right dose, curcumin could be a more effective anti-inflammatory treatment than common NSAIDs such as Advil and aspirin. Curcumin may also prevent heart disease, ease symptoms of osteoarthritis, treat diabetes, improve skin health, prevent eye degeneration, and much more.
The NCCIH is currently funding research to determine if and how curcuminoids can be converted in bone tissue into substances that may have on bone diseases.
