Astaxanthin: A rising star on the carotenoid horizon

The molecular structure of astaxanthin is distinguished from other carotenoids by two additional hydroxyl groups, which afford a 10-fold greater antioxidant capacity compared to beta-carotene and lutein. More importantly, this structural nuance also enables modulation of receptors and genes involved in maintaining healthy inflammatory balance. read more…

Abstract
Two of every 5 Americans will develop cancer, and the incidence of most cancers has increased annually since 1930.1-5 In addition, since 1930, despite the use of radiation therapy, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and improved surgical and diagnostic techniques, there has been limited improvement in cancer survival rates for most adult cancers.1-5 Chemotherapy and radiation therapy, however, continue to have a large role in cancer treatment but produce great morbidity. Two prescription medicines, amifostine and dexrazoxane, both antioxidants, reduce cancer therapy side effects without interfering read more…
