Astaxanthin increases mitochondria health and extends lifespan.

It’s not a coincidence we include it in our NAD+ Energizer product

"Genetic analyses indicated that the Astaxanthin-mediated life-extension relies on mitochondria activity

These data indicated a cross-species effect on the oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) machinery by the carotenoid, and provide with further insights into the molecular mechanism of animals longevity extension by Astaxanthin."

From reading this article, it seems it has not yet been peer-reviewed. I would like to see other sources.

it seems it is found in seafood like shrimp and krill.

Been taking about 16 MG a day for about 4 months. It is a fantastic anti inflammatory.
