Astaxanthin May Help Prevent Dementia
Astaxanthin has a unique mechanism to enter the brain through the blood-brain barrier and the eye through the blood-retina barrier, providing antioxidant protection and a wide range of anti-inflammatory activities for vital organs in the body.
Human clinical studies and preclinical trials have shown that astaxanthin provides a variety of benefits to the human brain and central nervous system. A three-month supplement of natural astaxanthin helps prevent dementia, according to an experiment in middle-aged and elderly people.
Another human trial found that astaxanthin intake for just four weeks was effective in improving age-related cognitive and motor decline. A study of 96 middle-aged and elderly people also supports the idea that natural astaxanthin may improve cognitive function as the body ages.
