In addition to an array of skin anti-aging and health benefits, Astaxanthin has been shown to lower serum dht, estrogen and raise testosterone in males, which has positive implications for scalp hair growth.
Astaxanthin is a fat-soluble compound. The challenge to deriving maximum benefits is its normally limited absorption—as low as about 50%. Assimilation of astaxanthin is impeded by limited uptake and intestinal degradation.
Astaxanthin with Phospholipids combines 4 milligrams of natural astaxanthin with a proprietary blend of phospholipids. By incorporating phospholipids, scientific research shows that absorption may be enhanced several-fold.
Astaxanthin with Phospholipids uses four different phospholipids to facilitate maximum absorption of astaxanthin into the bloodstream, where it is transported to cells throughout the body. To optimize the mechanisms of Astaxanthin that support hair growth, we strongly recommend, based on published research, combining Astaxanthin with a potent source of Phytosterols, such as the Ultra Natural Prostate Formula or Super Saw palmetto.
