Astaxanthin Improves Bodybuilder’s Muscle Recovery


Using Astaxanthin to improve Muscle Recovery

“I have been using Advanced Endurance and Recovery for 2 months, 2 caps of each Endurance Booster and Exercise Recovery daily. Being an elite bodybuilder, I train intensively 6 days a week. After high-intensity training, muscle aches usually last about 4 days and muscle recovery are slow. Since I started taking Supreme Health Endurance and Recovery, I noticed that muscle aches only last 1 day, or at most one and a half days. This means that I can keep training intensively and speed up my training program to achieve my goals. I also noticed that my skin is more radiant and there is less acne, this may be because of the Astaxanthin. I used to be a really light sleeper and have interrupted sleep but now I can have deeper and better sleep. I recommend this to the athletes that I train and I would recommend this to any athlete!” – Winner, Auckland.

Intensive Exercise Produces Free Radicals Causing Tissue Damage and Inflammation

Extensive sports medical research tells us that intense muscular contraction leads to the increased localized production of free radicals.

Dr Fred Hatfield, author of Hardcore Bodybuilding: A Scientific Approach says that delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) after intensive exercise or training is caused by lactic acid metabolism, hydroxyl-proline damage, which is induced by the production of free radicals (superoxide free radicals, hydroperoxides, hydroxyl radicals), and ammonia. 

In Optimum Sports Nutrition, Dr Michael Colgan describes the causes of both muscle damage and DOMS as being ammonia accumulation from muscle tissue into the blood, compression hemolysis, reduction of cytochrome C and uncontrolled free radical production.

After intense training, there is a substantial increase of these exercise-induced byproducts, which if not cleared effectively, can trigger a series of cellular/tissue damage resulting in inflammation, muscular fatigue and dysfunction all which predisposes the body to injury and slow recovery times.


Our metabolic rate increases with more intensive exercise, resulting in greater health benefits such as improved heart health and improved weight management but also result in more free radicals produced as a by-product. If not cleared, free radicals result in tissue damage and inflammation.

Endurance Program for Active People


Supreme Health have developed Advanced Endurance & Recovery - a program for active people, consisting of a formulation to boost endurance and long-term energy production, and a formulation to improve recovery from exercise.

Endurance & Recovery uses AstaNZ™ Astaxanthin “the most potent antioxidant ever discovered” as a core ingredient, which halts the free radical damage. In 5 out of 6 clinical trials, Natural Astaxanthin has been specifically documented to increase strength and endurance and that athletes who took just 4mg of New Zealand Astaxanthin every reported a 62% improvement in muscle strength, power output, and endurance.

Other beneficial antioxidants include vitamin B5, B6, C, D and E and Coenzyme Q10.

Endurance & Recovery combines AstaNZ™ with a cocktail of minerals, antioxidants, vitamins and amino acids, to provide a solution that works synergistically to facilitate elite performance.

Benefits of Advanced Endurance & Recovery include:

  • Improved joint and tendon mobility
  • Increased strength and endurance
  • Reduced muscle damage
  • Supports blood flow
