Astaxanthin Combined With Omega 3 Fish Oil Makes For a Potent Antioxidant

Recently I was browsing through some literature and I came across a recent study that you may be interested in.  It was about combining Omega 3 fish oil with astaxanthin.

Although it is not showing anything new, it does help reaffirm the assertions that we made when we developed Xtend-Life Omega 3/DHA Premium and Omega 3/QH Ultra fish oil products.  Both of these contain not only astaxanthin but also Lycopene which complements the astaxanthin nicely.  I suspect it that study had also included lycopene into the mix it would have been even better.

This study which can be review by clicking here demonstrates the beneficial properties of reducing oxidative stress and boosting lymph node health by simply taking omega 3 fish oil and astaxanthin (a powerful natural antioxidant).

This isn't a groundbreaking study as many scientists already know that both omega 3 fish oil and astaxanthin are good for supporting cardiovascular health and skin health, reducing inflammation, boosting mental health, and helping prevent neurodegenerative diseases.

There are more published studies and other strong clinical data showing the many benefits of astaxanthin and fish oil on our site. If you have a few minutes, I encourage you to read through them as they really do make for interesting reading. You can read them now by clicking here.

As far as I know we (Xtend-Life) are the only manufacturer so far to combine astaxanthin and lycopene with Omega 3 fish oil.  Krill oil does contain astaxanthin but it is very small and they generally top them up with astaxanthin ironically from the same source that we use.  However, the amounts of astaxanthin present are no more than we have.  One drawback with krill oil however is that you get very low levels of the Omega 3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA.
