Topic: Nutrient in Motion – How AstaReal® Astaxanthin Propels Mobility, Cognition, and Vision in an Aging Society
Date: 29 May 2019
Time: 01:00 am GMT +8
Duration: 30 minutes
Healthy aging is a public health objective and a personal goal for an ever-growing number of Americans. Maintaining optimal physical, mental, and social well-being calls for a suite of lifestyle habits that address the aging body’s specific needs. Good mobility, cognitive function, and vision in later years are strong determinants of quality of life and healthspan.
AstaReal® Astaxanthin supports mitochondrial function and crosses both blood-brain and blood-retinal barriers to support aging muscles, brain, and eyes as they face physiological decline associated with atrophy, higher levels of free radicals, and chronic inflammation. AstaReal® Astaxanthin is clinically proven to boost the effect of functional training as we age in order to support muscle strength, endurance, and combat age-related muscle loss. Natural astaxanthin has also been shown to support reaction times and cognitive function, as well as dynamic focus, ocular blood flow, and antioxidant capacity in aging eyes. This seminar will highlight the evidence supporting natural astaxanthin as a key nutrient for healthy aging and it’s role in preventative healthcare.
