Astaxanthin

Postby Karina52 » Sat Oct 27, 2018 7:48 am

I have started supplementing with this as recommended in Dr. Bredesen's book. Anyone else trying it? It sounds like a very worthwhile supplement to me. Be aware that the available strengths vary.... 4mg, 12 mg......and I'm sure others. In any event, it looks to be neuro-protective and at this point, anything I can do to alleviate the concern regarding my 4/4 status is welcome addition to my life! Didn't see this in any other subject on our apoe4 site so wanted to share!

Yes! I was just researching it and found one to purchase and am intrigued about its benefits for eye health. Since lutein supplementation is not recommended, this may be the better supplement for other reasons as well, as you note.

Here's an article addressing the cognitive benefits of combining mild exercise and astaxanthin.

our findings advance the notion that mild exercise combined with a dietary antioxidant such as astaxanthin, which induces endogenous h-LEP, may be an effective nonpharmacological strategy for preventing or improving cognitive function and brain health, and for slowing cognitive decline. This strategy may be particularly useful in vulnerable individuals, including the elderly.
