The so called ‘oxidative stress’ is the disturbance in the balance between the production of free radicals and the antioxidant defenses.
Oxidative stress can cause many problems:
skin pigmentation (dark spots)
damages DNA cells
can easily lead to inflammation
– because we can do something against is – we stop the process by an intake of appropriate quantity and quality of antioxidants. We can also defend ourselves by quitting our bad habits like smoking, alcohol consumption, stressful lifestyle, and doing this we reduce the damaging effects of oxidative stress.
External factors such as: air pollution, tobacco smoke, UV light damage the skin by producing free radical. These free radicals damage the collagen layer of our skin, accelerating the formation of wrinkles. With age the antioxidant content is reduced and we need to make up for that, either through appropriate diet or food supplements.
Fill your body with antioxidants!
Antioxidants are vital elements of our body. These are compounds that prevent the burning (oxidation) processes.
Their role is to deactivate the free radicals in a defense against the oxidative stress and through this to prevent any related damages and diseases.
Beta-carotene is the Provitamin of Vitamin A.
Vitamin A is an effective antioxidant, thus increasing the immune system's resistance.
It binds free radicals, protects cells from oxidation, contributes to their renewal and reproduction.
It reduces the occurrence of cancerous diseases, slows down aging and improves vision.
keeps the skin healthy
can be useful in treating liver spots and age spots
effective in preventing cancer
the strongest known natural antioxidant
protects the skin against UV radiation
accumulates beneficially in the outer and deeper layers of the skin
reduces the size of wrinkles and improves the micro texture of the skin
clinical researches have shown that astaxanthin helps to prevent skin ageing
significantly increases moisture content and elasticity of the skin by strengthening the collagen layer
Sockeye salmon contains a natural pigment that makes its flesh pink. This is astaxanthin, one of the most powerful antioxidants you can consume! Ataxanthin comes from the mocroalgae that the salmon eat. Astaxanthin lowers inflammatory markers like C-reactive protein (CRP), which shows inflammation int the heart and the blood vessels.
Astaxanthin is one of the best things you can eat to protect your cells and their DNA. By the way, it is 6000 times more effective than Vitamin C, 800 times more effective than Q10 and 550 times more effective than Vitamin E or green tea. When your DNA is damaged by free radicals from harmful toxins in the environment or processed foods, astaxanthin prevents further damage.
a fat soluble vitamin acting as antioxidant
protects the membrane of the cells
helps in preventing ageing processes
slows down skin ageing
Vitamin E (or tocopherol) is an antioxidant fat-soluble vitamin, which protects from the harmful effects of free radicals. Especially protects the cell membrane of each cell, contributing to inhibition of aging processes.
It also supports the protective function of the immune system at many points, thus reducing the risk of infections. It reduces skin vulnerability, accelerates wound healing, protects red blood cells from damage.

Lutein, together with zeaxanthin, is a basic ingredient of the so-called yellow spot in the retina. These two micro-nutrients can not be produced by our body, so we can only take it with proper nutrition.
Natural carriers belonging to the group of Carotenoids that can be found in the eye as well, but its amount is decreasing with time. Protect your eyes from harmful sunlight
(Against UV) and reduce the risk of cataracts and macular degeneration.
By the consumption of Lutein and Zeaxanthin, the risk of cataracts reduced in a study involving 1802 women, during a Double blind, randomized clinical research 17 patients with cataracts were given Lutein (15 mg, 3 times a week for two years). The clear vision of the participants improved as a result of the treatment.
