Did Astaxanthin Just Fix My Sjorgrens Syndrome?

 

Sjögren’s (“SHOW-grins”) Syndrome (SS) is a long-term, a non-fatal autoimmune condition that’s characterized by specific white blood cells attacking and destroying the moisture-producing glands throughout the body. This lymphocyte destruction causes saliva and tears production to become compromised and progressively non-existent, this results in dry, irritated and red eyes, a dry mouth, difficulty swallowing and talking, and many more. Margaret had been suffering from Sjögren’s syndrome for the past three years and noticed a considerable difference in her symptoms when she starting supplementing Supreme Health’s Advanced Immune Support. Learn about her experience below.

Margaret’s experience with Astaxanthin Immune Support:

“I have been suffering from autoimmune disorders Sjögren’s syndrome and fibromyalgia for the past 3 years. Due to these conditions, I have been living with joint pain, inflammation, arthritis, skin dryness, dry eyes, nose and mouth, and always feel fatigued. My doctor prescribed me with a steroid (Prednisone) and an anti-rheumatic (Plaquenil), which helped, but have a number of side effects.

I heard about Astaxanthin’s benefits for autoimmune disorders through word of mouth and decided to try Supreme Health’s Advanced Immune Support. I have been taking 2 capsules daily for 6 weeks now and am feeling so much better. My energy levels have increased, I am back to regular exercise and keeping pace with my buddies. I am recovering from the workouts quickly (I used to take about a week to recover from a bike ride or long walk). I have no more inflammation in my joints and I feel like my old self again. It’s amazing what immune support has done for me and how it has increased my quality of life and feeling of wellness. It seems to also be giving me extra protection against colds, sore throats, and all those nasty bugs by giving me extra immune support. I love this product!!”

Astaxanthin vs. Sjögren’s Syndrome

So how did the Astaxanthin (AstaNZ™)  in Supreme Health’s Advanced Immune Support help Margaret’s Sjögren’s syndrome and her Fibromyalgia?  Well simply put,

  1. AstaNZ™ is the most potent antioxidant or quencher of free radicals like Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS). The AstaNZ™ in Advanced Immune Support halts the oxidative damage to cellular membranes and due to its unique molecular shape, it helps to repair cellular damage and strengthen cellular membranes.

  2. AstaNZ™ is a powerful immunomodulator. It helps to regulate the responses of the immune system.  As a powerful tetra-carotenoid, AstaNZ™ has the ability to not only stabilize ROS free radicals but also to recycle other less potent antioxidants like Vitamin C and Vitamin E to further modulate the immune responses and stop oxidative stress and the damage it causes to individual cells and specific tissue types.

  3. AstaNZ™ has strong anti-inflammatory properties. Inflammation is the condition where an area becomes swollen, hot, red and often painful. AstaNZ™ is able to slow the inflammatory cascade caused by an overactive immune system.

 Can Astaxanthin Fix Sjogrens Syndrome

Japanese researchers conducted a clinical study examining the role of Astaxanthin in Sjogren’s Syndrome patients. The study showed certain biological markers of ROS were significantly reduced after supplementation with 12 mg Astaxanthin and that the expression of inflammatory cytokines was reduced after just two weeks.  Although not a large study is an exciting beginning for research of the possible therapeutic role Astaxanthin could have in halting the autoimmune oxidative based cellular damage.
