Astaxanthin for weight loss

Does obesity create inflammation?

Overweight and obesity produce inflammation. The cell damage caused by obesity (free radicals) can trigger an automatic immune response in the body that causes chronic inflammation. The long-term result of chronic inflammation can lead to weight-related chronic diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

Astaxanthin nutritional supplement

People who are overweight and obese can benefit from increasing the amount of antioxidants in their diet. The harmful free radicals, which are created from lack of physical activity, poor nutrition and inflammation, can be offset by antioxidants. The process is that the antioxidant "sacrifices" part of its cellular structure, in order to repair the free radical and make it a stable and healthy cell. Once this happens, the newly fixed cell can start working properly again, instead of creating more harmful inflammation.

This is why overweight people are advised to eat a healthier diet and exercise more. It not only burns calories to alleviate the immediate weight problem, but it helps improve the balance between free radicals and antioxidants, an imbalance that can lead to trouble later in life.

Astaxanthin from PureMagics

Natural astaxanthin (ASTAXANTHIN) which is extracted from microalgae called Haematococcus plavialis, is the most powerful natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory supplement in the world. Astaxanthin is 6000 times stronger than vitamin C and 1000 times stronger than aspirin as an anti-inflammatory.

Astaxanthin is a carotenoid (same as you find in carrots) derived from microalgae. It has been proven in over 1000 medical studies to have very strong anti-inflammatory healing abilities through its role as a very strong antioxidant.

So astaxanthin can help avoid obesity-related diseases, but can it really help me lose weight?

Yes. Astaxanthin has been successful in several independent studies in lowering blood sugar levels, as well as significantly lowering cholesterol. It can help the body process sugar and fats instead of storing them as body fat.

When our body suffers from chronic inflammation the body produces deception at the cellular level. When our body is inflamed, it cannot perform its various functions properly (this leads to poor health, illness and disease). One of the many important functions of our body is to process the fats and sugars we eat, storing some as fat and using some as energy. When we are inflamed, this process is impaired, so we end up storing more fat and sugar than we normally would. This of course worsens the obesity problem.

We at PUREMAGICS started promoting our nutritional supplement containing a combination of astaxanthin and curcumin as a supplement that can help with weight loss after we had so many responses from people who took astaxanthin for other inflammatory health problems and then found that they were able to maintain their weight much more easily than before. A welcome side effect of a natural supplement! It is important to note that this is not a "miracle cure" and it is important to always observe proper nutrition and orderly weight loss in consultation with an accompanying physician.
