What is Astaxanthin & How Does it Inhibit Cell Growth?
Astaxanthin (as-tuh-zan-thin), classified as a type of carotenoid, is a form of microalgae that gives the red color to salmon, lobster, and crab, and the pink color to the feathers of flamingos.
It has been found to inhibit cell growth in a dose- and time-dependent manner, by arresting cell cycle progression and by promoting apoptosis. One study investigated the effects of astaxanthin on the antitumor effector activity of natural killer (NK) cells suppressed by stress in mice in order to define the immunological significance of astaxanthin and found that it increased natural killer cell activity.
While astaxanthin also is a great help in supporting the PON1 detoxification pathway, thereby helping most cancer patients indirectly, it is proving to be an excellent choice for helping kill cancer directly.
