Red-iscover your youth with BiO-LiFE®’s Astaxanthin 4mg! BiO-LiFE® shares Mother Nature’s benefits with the launch of BiO-LiFE® Astaxanthin 4mg, a dietary supplement
of pure anti-oxidant to address aging skin. A capsule of Astaxanthin a day helps to reduce age spots, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and helps to improve skin moisture, texture, and elasticity.
The ‘superstar ingredient’ – Astaxanthin – is a red pigment renowned in scientific circles as an antioxidant,with various additional benefits that would be right at home with those who regularly walk on along red carpets. Women who lead active lifestyles and, who are always on-the-go are more exposed to ultra-violet (UV) light which causes skin damage.
According to PH Health, UV light and air pollution creates free radicals, which in turn damages collagen, the main structural protein of connective tissue in the body and the key substance that gives skin its firmness and elasticity. In our youth, skin remain plump and smooth because the body generates plenty of collagen, but as we age, production slows, and existing collagen is damaged by oxidative stress caused by these free radicals resulting in wrinkles and sagging skin.
“This product is among the excellent anti-oxidant agents made available for the Malaysian market,” said John Goebel, General Manager of BiO-LiFE®. “BiO-LiFE® Astaxanthin 4mg is derived from Haematococcus pluvialis, marine micro-algae which is rich in this substance. It contains a high oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC).”
Dr Lim in his presentation on maintaining skin health said, “Astaxanthin is a compound from the carotenoid family with naturally occurring pigments that are well-known for their anti-oxidative properties. Studies have shown that people consuming diets rich in carotenoids, which can be found in super foods such as selected fruits and vegetables, are generally less likely to suffer from illnesses.”
“The keto-carotenoid, Astaxanthin, found in wild salmon, krill and shrimps, is among the most efficacious of these carotenoids. As oxidative stress is believed to be a principal mechanism of aging, and other conditions associated with aging, Astaxanthin is a standout star when it comes to modulating aging.”
