(NaturalHealth365) As of January 2014, the synthetic (toxic) astaxanthin – derived from petrochemicals – fed to farm-raised salmon will be available for human consumption through ‘nutritional’ supplements. That’s right – the same stuff that runs your car engine will be pumped into ill-informed vitamin consumers. But, the big question is why?
Uninformed consumers are being poisoned by farm raised salmon
Farm raised salmon would normally never be purchased by consumers because of its pale, grey color. So, farm raised salmon producers must feed the salmon a synthetic version of astaxanthin. This practice has never been tested for safety in humans. For more details – listen to my exclusive interview with Bob Capelli, a leading expert on the health benefits of natural astaxanthin.
How does natural astaxanthin protect my health?
In a previous article, I talked about how astaxanthin can boost your energy and immunity. But, many people ask me – ‘what is it’? Simply put, this reddish-colored pigment is produced by microalgae and gets eaten by many different forms of sea life including, salmon, lobster and shrimp.
Astaxanthin is often referred to as the ‘king of carotenoids’ due to its high potency versus other carotenoids like, beta-carotene and lycopene. Bottom line, astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant like, vitamin C.
Would you like to improve your health?
Astaxanthin, like any antioxidant, has natural anti-inflammatory properties. But, unlike prescription drug painkillers, natural antioxidants do not threaten human health with unwanted (negative) side effects.
How can astaxanthin help me?
Let’s put it this way – if you suffer with chronic fatigue, digestive issues or any other kind of degenerative disease – you need to eat more antioxidants. Just be careful – natural food substances should never be viewed as a ‘magic bullet’. Unlike the unnatural conditioning we receive from conventional medicine – good health takes time to develop and maintain. Naturally, in the long run, the more you consume antioxidants, the better you’ll feel.
Time and again, we see that natural (organic) foods and non-denatured nutritional supplements can help to prevent, even reverse health problems like arthritis, poor eye health, heart disease, cancer – the list goes on and on.
My final point would be, when suffering with a chronic health issue, never give up. Work with a trusted (competent) natural healthcare provider and keep doing everything you can to nourish your body back to life!
