What is Astaxanthin and what are the benefits of Astaxanthin?

on September 13, 2022

Here’s a quick info about the newest super antioxidant in CHOSEN. 

Astaxanthin comes under a group of antioxidants which are called xanthophyll carotenoids. Xanthophylls are a class of oxygen containing pigments, which are responsible for many beautiful natural events. The colours of autumn leaves in fall, and the beautiful pink hues of the flamingo are all related to these xanthophyll pigments.

There are many natural sources of astaxanthin, like bacteria, algae etc. There are synthetic versions of astaxanthin as well. What you get in CHOSEN’s WAH-TOR - is natural astaxanthin. It is obtained from an algae called Hematococcus pluvialis in a sustainable way.

Astaxanthin skin supplement benefits for skin

We have always known that coloured vegetables and coloured plants contain high levels of antioxidants. Astaxanthin is a coloured antioxidant with very strong skin protective and skin rejuvenating properties. It is a powerful scavenger of free radicals.

Here are the most important astaxanthin skin benefits for you. These benefits of astaxanthin are based on human studies.

1. Increases collagen content in the skin. While not being a collagen itself, astaxanthin is a collagen booster.

2. Reduces skin wrinkles

3. Increases skin elasticity, hydration and reduces skin greasiness.

4. Increases the effectiveness of collagen supplements like TOR Classic and TOR Mighty. A study showed that, when taken together astaxanthin and collagen supplement, boosted collagen levels in the skin synergistically.
