Astaxanthin: The Little-Known Miracle Nutrient for Inflammation, Anti-Aging, Athletic Endurance and More
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor
(NaturalNews) Every once in a very great while, I discover a natural medicine so astonishing that I feel compelled to share it with you. The verb “discover” is actually not to my credit, by the way; Mother Nature created this natural medicine eons ago, and it’s been present in trace amounts in aquatic ecosystems for over a billion years. In this article, I’m going to reveal the name of this natural medicine, what health benefits it provides to us, and how to get some right now. But first, before revealing the name, I want to share some of the numerous health benefits with you so you get the full picture of just how significant this substance can be in enhancing your health. As always, I have absolutely no financial ties to this product, and I earn nothing if you choose to purchase it. I do, however, buy and consume this product myself on a regular basis, as you’ll see below.
Did you ever notice how the drug companies get excited when they find a drug that just slightly alters the risk of a single disease? I remember hearing all the hype about a particular cancer drug made by Big Pharma. It was called a “miracle” drug that needed to be fast-tracked so it could start saving lives. When I looked at the research, however, it only turned out to prevent cancer in one woman out of two hundred (a 0.5% reduction in the risk of breast cancer). Gee, that’s not much get excited about. And yet they called it a “miracle” drug!
Well imagine if there were a natural substance that operated at many different biochemical levels at once, providing all the following health benefits (yes, from a single source!):
• Reduces proliferation of breast cancer tumor cells by 40%
• Protects the brain from dementia and Alzheimer’s
• Greatly reduces inflammation and joint pain
• Reduces oxidative damage to your DNA by 40% (even at low doses)
• Greatly increases endurance, muscle recovery and workout performance
• Reduces the risk of cancer
• Reduces blood sugar level in diabetics and prediabetics
• Improves fertility while decreasing the rate of stillborn births
• Promotes cardiovascular health, reduces C-Reactive Proteins (CRP)
• Reduces or eliminates carpal tunnel syndrome
• Boosts immune function and helps the body resist infections
• Protects the stomach from ulcers and invasive bacteria
• Protects the kidneys from damage due to high blood sugar
• Causes cancer cells to commit suicide (apoptosis)
• Greatly improves sperm quality, motility, and sperm count
• Prevents asthma by normalizing histamine levels
• Protects the body from highly oxidative foods like fried foods
In addition, I’ve found that this natural medicine:
• Greatly protects eye health, reduces cataracts and prevents UV damage to the eyes
• Makes skin look younger and functions as a natural internal sunscreen that prevents DNA damage and sunburn
• Protects the body from the dangerous oxidizing effects of Vioxx and COX-2 inhibitors, meaning that is can actually reduce the harmful side effects and deaths caused by other anti-inflammatory pharmaceuticals
Now, if all that is really true — and I’ll show you in a minute that it is true — that would make this one of the most miraculous medicines ever discovered by modern science, wouldn’t it? For any one substance to prevent and treat so many different diseases — and to protect the human body in so many different ways — is nothing short of truly miraculous. So why isn’t this nutrient front-page news?
The answer, of course, is because it can’t be patented. This natural substance (which I will reveal below) is created by microalgae, so it’s not something that was invented by a drug company scientist for patenting purposes. And the sad fact of the matter is that drug companies aren’t interested in medicines that can’t be patented, no matter how helpful or miraculous they may really be.
And yes, all the health benefits I’ve described for this supplement are, indeed, quite true. And they’re backed by clinical trials and research papers that are fascinating in what they contain, and yet have never been picked up by the mainstream media. In other words, this nutrient may be the most powerful natural medicine you’ve never heard about!
