How Astaxanthin Helps Improve Skin Health

How Astaxanthin Helps Improve Skin Health

Astaxanthin is a naturally occurring red carotenoid pigment made by a species of freshwater micoalgae and a species of yeast fungus. It can also be found in fish, shrimp and krill that feed on the algae.

Astaxanthin itself acts as a strong antioxidant in the body with several different benefits associated with this activity.

A study on 30 healthy women reported that astaxanthin supplementation resulted in significant improvements in skin wrinkles, skin elasticity, age spot size and skin texture after 8 weeks.1

In a 2018 randomized double-blind placebo-controlled study researchers found that astaxanthin seems protective against skin damage caused by UV light and helps maintain healthy skin.2

Two more studies also support the protective effects of astaxanthin in preventing skin damage from UV light.3,4


Astaxanthin may help improve skin health, reduce wrinkles and reduce damage from UV light.

In addition to astaxanthin found in Antarctic Krill Oil by Beyond Vita®, there are several other nutrients and herbs which have been shown to positively affect skin health and function. We combined them into one simple formula called Hair, Skin and Nails Support by Beyond Vita®.*
