Astaxanthin - Super Antioxidant
Marine Alga - Haematococcus Pluvialis Microalgae
World’s Strongest Natural Antioxidant
By: Dr. Skip Hellen ND, CNC (Health Doctor)
 Rev. 7/9/2013

Astaxanthin is the main carotenoid pigment found in aquatic animals. This long chain molecular red-orange pigment is closely related to other well-known carotenoids such as beta-carotene and lutein, but has significantly stronger antioxidant properties than any other antioxidant known. Commercially it is primarily extracted from the microalgae haematococcus pluvialis with a secondary source being the yeast xanthophyllomyces dendrorhous.

Astaxanthin has unique chemical properties
The Hydroxyl groups at the end of the Astaxanthin molecule make it very different from beta carotene and other carotenoids chemically. This small difference adds up to a huge disparity in terms of functional abilities in the human body and is what gives astaxanthin its unique and enormous health beneficial properties.

As a natural antioxidant, it does not just donate electrons like other antioxidants, instead it fits nicely into the cell membrane matrix and binds with free radicals rather than donating electrons. When molecules donate electrons to other molecule, they to become imbalanced free radicals continuing a domino electron transfer effect that damage cells and intercellular DNA compromising healthy cell function (biological damage – aging). It is this cells and DNA oxidative damage that compromises the body’s natural antioxidant neutralizing systems of which many scientists believe is responsible for most if not all of the aging process. These natural antioxidant generating systems are currently being overwhelmed by the toxic byproducts of modern behavior and consumptive habits along with the toxic environment which we have created and now live.

Astaxanthin doesn't become a free radical when it binds to other oxidized molecules thus stopping the health damaging oxygen free radical cascade or domino effect. In short, astaxanthin is extremely bioavailable and a superior, broad spectrum antioxidant (oxygen free radical scavenger) than traditional antioxidant agent. Recent scientific studies have revealed remarkable dietary health benefits from supplementing with astaxanthin. In fact, there are numerous documented cures of neurodegenerative diseases, sunburn, diabetes, inflammation, and central nervous disorders with the proper therapeutic use of astaxanthin.

Astaxanthin (the most powerful antioxidant known)
Natural haematococcus pluvialis (astaxanthin) has proven through reliable scientific studies to be the strongest antioxidant known to man, comparisons below.
Vitamin E = 14.3 times stronger
Pycnogenol = 17.9 times stronger
Synthetic Astaxanthin = 20.9 times stronger
Beta Carotene = 53.7 times stronger
Vitamin C = 64.9 times stronger

While different studies produce different results, one thing is very clear, astaxanthin is the most powerful antioxidant known. Not only is astaxanthin the most powerful antioxidant, proper supplemental use reduces the ill health effects of the following ill health problems just to name a few.
1. Acid reflux (GERD)
2. Biological oxidative stress (free radical production)
3. Blood clotting & stroke
4. Neurodegenerative Disease (Parkinson's, Dementia, Alzheimer's etc.)
5. Cancer
6. Cholesterol
7. Diabetes
8. Heart disease (atherosclerosis)
9. High blood pressure
10. Infections
11. Inflammation & cardiac cell death (neutralizes prostaglandins)
12. Oxidation of low-density-lipoprotein (LDL – bad cholesterol)
13. Macular degeneration (AMD)
14. Rheumatoid arthritis
15. Skin degradation (psoriasis, eczema, wrinkles, lines)
16. Ulcers

Astaxanthin confers enormous beneficial effects on the following
1. Antibacterial and antiviral
2. ****Antioxidant neutralizing tri and single oxygen molecule oxidative damage
3. Asthma
4. Crosses the blood-brain barrier (brain and cognitive abilities)
5. Fertility in men
6. Immune system booster (heightens production of B-cell antibodies)
7. ***Muscle strength & endurance
8. Neurological system
9. Overall health & body systems
10. Production of high-density-lipoprotein (HDL – good cholesterol)
11. Skin anti-aging (notice young tree leaves have a red pigment (astaxanthin) to protect tender tissues from sunlight damage)
12. UV sunray protection

The best way to ensure antioxidant protection is to adopt the following daily habits;
•  Consume a minimum of nine servings of raw, fresh, preferably organic
•  Take a high quality multivitamin supplement
•  Take a variety of antioxidants (natural astaxanthin, vitamin C, A, E, lutein, bioflavonoids)
•  Consume a green blended food with a super foods (spirulina, lemon/lime, turmeric, cayenne, garlic, ginger)
•  Take a minimum of 30 deep breaths for healthy oxidation and detoxification
•  Consume adequate amounts of liquid daily for proper hydration and detoxification (1 oz. for every 2 lbs. of body weight)

The above approach will provide a broad spectrum antioxidant foundation which will provide maximum protection against oxidative free radical damage to body tissue and promote overall health.

Daily dose
General = 4 mg antioxidant & immune system maintenance
Therapeutic = 8-12 mg (may lead to liver & skin pigmentation in high doses)
Recommended = 4-8 mg for 1-2 weeks => storage loading, then 2-4 mg daily => maintenance

Astaxanthin is a super supplement compound that possesses many enormous health benefit properties with antioxidant, energy and endurance among the most obvious. It should be a central part of any prudent optimal health supplement regimen.

HELP! UHRI has produced optimal health step by step programs designed to guide you through all the challenges of personal excellence and optimal health acquisition. Take the challenge and become the best that you can be, then teach others to do the same.

"Illness and disease are optional, choose not to participate" ~ Dr. Skip Hellen

Important understanding
It’s important to understand that optimal health can only be achieved and maintained when nutritional, physical, and mental requirements are met resulting in systemic biological balance (homeostasis).

The following are the cornerstones of success with anything in life, make these qualities an important part of your life strategy and you will achieve excellence in anything you do. 

   Personal responsibility encourages excellence,
requires personal excellence,
advances positive action,
strengthens personal power,
promotes success ~ Dr. Skip Hellen 

1. (Develop) a strong sense of self respect and discipline
2. (Pledge) Take the "Declaration of Health Independence" pledge
3. (Test) Complete the health assessment test (establish a personal health baseline)
4. (Decide) Set a goal to achieve personal health excellence (optimal health)
5. (Education) Learn health principles how to achieve optimum health
6. (Heath Compass) Buy a pH litmus test kit, start testing frequently – keep a test result log
7. (Manage/Adjust) Change behavior habits for best results
8. (Commitment) Stay the course until achieving personal health excellence
9. (Mentor) Help another achieve personal health excellence

Since behavior habits and nutrition are critical components of human health and longevity, denial, shortcuts and misguided beliefs can be very costly not only in terms of lost monetary wealth but in compromised health leading to rapid aging, illness, disease and death. DON’T TAKE YOUR HEALTH FOR GRANTED. IF YOU DON’T TAKE PROPER CARE OF YOUR HEALTH, WHO WILL?

The important thing to remember is consumptive habits (foods) will form the foundation of either optimal health or illness and disease. The old saying "you are what you eat" is absolutely true when it comes to health.

Developing strong personal character (respect, belief, knowledge, discipline, commitment) are the cornerstones of all personal excellence accomplishments. Taking the "Declaration of Health Independence" pledges and adopting the behavior principles solidifies a vital first step on the road to optimal health success. These pledge commitments not only help develop the skills required to accomplish the goal but better define the path to personal health excellence. The second step is purchasing a litmus test kit to accurately monitor health progress. (see below for event test kit sale)

Perhaps the hardest part of achieving optimal health is changing unhealthy behavior habits to healthy habits.
