Potential Anti-Atherosclerotic Properties of Astaxanthin.

Abstract: Astaxanthin is a naturally occurring red carotenoid pigment classified as a xanthophyll, found in microalgae and seafood such as salmon, trout, and shrimp. This review focuses on astaxanthin as a bioactive compound and outlines the evidence associated with its potential role in the prevention of atherosclerosis. Astaxanthin has a unique […]

Usefulness of Nutraceuticals (Armolipid Plus) Versus Ezetimibe and Combination in Statin-Intolerant Patients With Dyslipidemia With Coronary Heart Disease.

2018-03-22T22:15:25+00:00

Usefulness of Nutraceuticals (Armolipid Plus) Versus Ezetimibe and Combination in Statin-Intolerant Patients With Dyslipidemia With Coronary Heart Disease. Abstract: Statins are extensively used to treat dyslipidemia, but, because of their low tolerability profile, they are discontinued in a significant proportion of patients. Ezetimibe and nutraceuticals have been introduced as alternative therapies and have proved to […]

Safety and lipid-altering efficacy of a new omega-3 fatty acid and antioxidant-containing medical food in men and women with elevated triacylglycerols.

2018-03-22T22:12:24+00:00

Safety and lipid-altering efficacy of a new omega-3 fatty acid and antioxidant-containing medical food in men and women with elevated triacylglycerols.

Abstract: This randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled multi-center trial investigated the lipid-altering effects of a medical food (PDL-0101) providing 1.8 g/d eicosapentaenoic acid; 12 mg/d astaxanthin, a marine algae-derived carotenoid; and 100 mg/d tocopherol-free gamma/delta tocotrienols enriched […]

Astaxanthin from Haematococcus pluvialis Prevents Oxidative Stress on Human Endothelial Cells without Toxicity.

Abstract:

Astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant, is a good candidate for the prevention of intracellular oxidative stress. The aim of the study was to compare the antioxidant activity of astaxanthin present in two natural extracts from Haematococcus pluvialis, a microalgae strain, with that of synthetic […]

Plasma carotenoid concentrations before and after supplementation with astaxanthin in middle-aged and senior subjects.

2018-03-19T21:32:31+00:00

Plasma carotenoid concentrations before and after supplementation with astaxanthin in middle-aged and senior subjects. Abstract: A randomized, double-blind human trial was conducted to assess the effect on the plasma carotenoid concentration of 4- or 12-week astaxanthin supplementation (1 or 3 mg/d) of 20 Japanese middle-aged and senior subjects. The plasma carotenoid concentration was significantly higher […]

Effect of astaxanthin supplementation on paraoxonase 1 activities and oxidative stress status in young soccer players.

2018-03-22T21:15:51+00:00

Effect of astaxanthin supplementation on paraoxonase 1 activities and oxidative stress status in young soccer players.

Abstract: The purpose of the study was to examine the effects of astaxanthin (Asx) on paraoxonase (PON1) activities and oxidative stress status in soccer players. Forty soccer players were randomly assigned in a double-blind fashion to Asx and placebo […]
