Improve your Heart Health and Cholesterol levels
Astaxanthin helps achieve a healthier heart and helps prevent heart disease
In the western world heart disease remains one of the biggest killers.
High cholesterol and high blood pressure are the two major culprits in heart attacks, and usually arise from:
- Poor diets with too many fats, sugars and starches
- A lack of regular aerobic exercise
- Weight gain, more than 25% f your ideal body weight
- Smoking and excess alcohol, over the recommended limits
- Daily stressors like work, health and environmental factors
Healthy hearts and Astaxanthin
- Astaxanthin helps prevent cardiovascular disease
- It helps people who have already been diagnosed with heart disease by lowering their chance of a heart attack
Animal studies demonstrated that it helped reduce the amount of injury to the heart muscle during a heart attack and it is widely accepted that its anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties are heart-healthy. It also protects the heart by reducing LDL cholesterol and lowering triglycerides levels.
Astaxanthin and cholesterol
- Astaxanthin can help to raise the levels of the HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol)
- A recent clinical study showed that it increases HDL cholesterol by 15%, lowers triglycerides by 25% and improves fat metabolism
- people taking Statin medications in conjunction with astaxanthin have reported an even larger improvement in their cholesterol profile plus fewer Statins side effects (including muscle aches, memory problems and elevated liver enzymes)
