Can One Pill Make You Look Younger?
Oct 31, 2012
The Hot New Antioxidant That Can Erase Wrinkles &
Repair Skin Damage While Providing Youth & Vigor.
Hype Or Health Breakthrough?
If you've been watching the news lately, you may have heard about a powerful antioxidant called
astaxanthin. Endorsed by such well-known health experts as Dr. Oz and Dr. Mercola, the claim is that for both men and
women, one small pill taken daily can do more to reduce wrinkles and signs of skin aging than any
cream, lotion or spa treatment could ever do.
Astaxanthin is also being hailed for its ability to boost
stamina, reduce exercise recovery time, improve joint health, boost brain function and provide an
overall surge of youthful energy. But is there truth to these claims or is astaxanthin just the latest fad
I'm Joshua Corn, Editor-in-Chief of Live in the Now, one of the fastest growing natural health
publications in the nation. My passion for natural health has always driven me to educate people on
alternative solutions that are both safe and effective.
I've been familiar with astaxanthin for some time now, and I can tell you that when it comes to neutralizing
free radicals and oxidation within the body, astaxanthin is more effective and powerful than vitamins C and E,
beta-carotene, lutein, green tea and even the almighty CoQ10.[1,2] However, the big question is, can the antioxidant
qualities of astaxanthin really help you look better, feel younger and live longer?
Let's first discuss astaxanthin's ability to revitalize your skin's appearance since so many women take the
wrong approach to maintaining the health of their skin, and so many men don't even address the issue at
The Hidden Dangers Of Skin Creams And Lotions
Buyers beware! The cosmetic and skin care industries are one of the biggest culprits when it comes to toxin
laden products. Even if you don't use skin creams, you most certainly
use sun block lotion which can be just as toxic to your skin. These
creams and lotions may provide short-term benefits, but come with
the risk of long-term health consequences. Trust me, it's simply not
worth it. There are more and more all natural skin cream and sun
block options, but it's important to realize that your skin is your
largest organ, and protecting its outermost layer is only a small part of
Why Skin Damage Is An "Inside Job"
The biggest threat to the health and appearance of your skin is something known as free radical
damage. Free radicals occur naturally but their numbers can be increased to
overwhelming levels by factors such as pollution, toxins and a poor diet. These highly unstable oxygen
molecules wreak havoc if left unchecked, leading to critically high levels of
inflammation, accelerated aging and multiple health problems. Your skin is where the earliest signs of
free radical damage show up, since it is especially vulnerable to oxidative stress and inflammation.
The good news is that your body has a built-in mechanism that utilizes antioxidants to neutralize free
radicals. The bad news is that most of us are severely lacking the antioxidant firepower to get the job

Are You Critically Low In Antioxidants?
Despite growing awareness of the importance of antioxidants, experts say that nearly all Americans —
even those of us who eat plenty of fruits and vegetables — lack what we need for optimal health. The
reason? Firstly, produce today is 40% lower in antioxidant nutrients than it was just 50 years ago due to
soil depletion. Secondly, the most popular fruits and vegetables, such as apples, bananas and carrots,
have been genetically modified, significantly reducing their nutritional and antioxidant value. And lastly,
exposure to pollution and toxins has become an unavoidable part of life, and this creates more free
radicals than our body was ever designed to process.
How Astaxanthin Heals Skin From The Inside Out
Wrinkles, brown spots, blemishes and dryness — there are many ways that skin
damage can present itself. It turns out that astaxanthin may not only protect
your skin from future damage and can also reverse years of damage relatively
quickly. This is due to its extremely potent antioxidant properties, as well as its
anti-inflammatory and immunity-enhancing characteristics.
One of the ways
that astaxanthin works is by protecting the skin's outermost layer
against oxidative stress. This enhances cell repair and collagen production, thus increasing skin moisture, preventing and
reducing wrinkles, and providing for firmer, more elastic skin. Astaxanthin can
also suppress inflammation, which can help to reduce puffiness and irritation. Overall, research is showing that astaxanthin is, in fact, one of the best supplements you can take to
repair and heal your skin from the inside out, reverse years of damage and maintain a youthful
Astaxanthin As An Energy Booster
The incredible "youthening" effects of astaxanthin are not limited to skin health. It has also been shown
to have a positive impact on mitochondria, the cellular energy centers that produce up to 95% of your
energy, but as a byproduct, create lots of harmful free radicals. As a powerful antioxidant, astaxanthin
neutralizes these free radicals, making mitochondrial function more efficient, which creates higher energy
levels in your body. Astaxanthin has also been found to improve strength and stamina, and to speed muscle recovery
time after exercise. It has become popular among athletes for this reason, and if
you exercise regularly, you too will find that astaxanthin will greatly enhance your performance.
Total Body Health Benefits
It's true that astaxanthin has been shown in the lab to be the most potent natural antioxidant yet
discovered. But perhaps more important is how astaxanthin acts once it's inside your body. It's unique in
that, unlike many antioxidants, it can reach every cell in your body to provide system-wide
benefits. For example it is one of the few antioxidants that can cross the blood-brain barrier to protect your brain and nervous system and can cross the
blood-retinal barrier to protect your eyes.[7,8] Astaxanthin is especially active within joints and connective
tissues and has a positive impact on virtually every single organ and system within your body.
Astaxanthin has been shown to:
Reverse the signs of skin aging[3,4]
Act as a powerful anti-inflammatory
Enhance energy and stamina
Support optimal joint and muscle function
Boost immune system strength
Protect the brain and eyes[7,8]
How To Take Advantage Of Astaxanthin
While astaxanthin is part of a relatively well-known class of antioxidants called carotenoids, its benefits
are just now being discovered due to its rare occurrence in nature. It turns out that astaxanthin is found
almost exclusively in a type of microalgae known as H. Pluvialis, which only certain pink-hued creatures,
such as salmon and flamingos, consume. To get clinically beneficial amounts of astaxanthin, you'd have
to eat a minimum of 6 ounces of wild salmon every day. (Farm raised salmon is very low in natural
astaxanthin.) This is not only difficult, inconvenient and expensive, but most experts do not recommend
eating seafood daily due to potential contamination. This is why an astaxanthin supplement is your best
My 3 Tips For Choosing The Best Supplement
When shopping for an astaxanthin supplement, there are three indispensable tips I can give you.
Make sure the bottle says "natural astaxanthin," ideally from the marine algae species H. Pluvialis. Avoid synthetic astaxanthin as it can have less than half the antioxidant potency.
You need to take 4 milligrams per day. Anything less and you won't be getting clinically beneficial amounts.
Don't pay more than $25 for a one-month supply. Many companies are taking advantage of the hype surrounding astaxanthin and charging more than double this.
The Astaxanthin I Personally Recommend
The astaxanthin supplement that I take myself and personally recommend is called PurZanthin™. It's simply the best and most affordable astaxanthin on the market.
Now I must disclose that in addition to being Editor-in-Chief of the Live in the Now natural health newsletter, I am also CEO of Stop Aging Now, a company that has been making premium grade supplements since 1995, which includes our breakthrough PurZanthin formula. That's why I invite you to do your own research to make sure I'm not just shamelessly promoting my own product.
I think you'll find no other astaxanthin product like it on the market:
PurZanthin is made from ZANTHIN®, the most superior source of natural, purified
astaxanthin derived from the H. Pluvialis species of micro algae.
PurZanthin is highly concentrated so just one small softgel per day contains the recommended clinical dose of 4 mg.
PurZanthin is made in the USA in an FDA-inspected facility to meet stringent standards for quality, purity and potency.
PurZanthin costs as low as $12.49 per bottle (which lasts a full month). This is up to 4
times less than similar, high quality brands.
Order Now And Feel Better Within 7 Days!
When I first started taking PurZanthin, I noticed benefits in less than 7 days. I personally
guarantee that you'll have a similar experience. But don't take my word for it. You can try
PurZanthin risk free. Not only is it extremely affordable and will ship to you for free, if you don't
see results, your entire order is free. PurZanthin comes with an amazing 365-day "any reason"
guarantee. So even if you've taken every last softgel, and even if one full year has passed, if
you're not satisfied, you'll get every penny back.
Whether it's PurZanthin or another brand, I hope I've convinced you that astaxanthin is more
than just a silly fad. I've done the research and have also been taking it myself. I believe the
hype is well justified and that this powerful antioxidant is here to stay. The numerous health
benefits are just too impressive to ignore, and I consider it one of the most important
supplements I currently take. I think you'll find the same is true for you, so give it a try!
