Exercise can lead to an excess of free radicals, ultimately causing oxidative damage. Together with the production of lactic acid, oxidative stress can contribute to reduced capacity, fatigue and depletion of muscle energy stores during strenuous or prolonged muscle work. Astalif astaxanthin is a pure and potent ingredient with proven benefits that make it ideal for specific applications in sports nutrition, including:
- Provides Support for Cardiovascular Health
- Improves Muscle Endurance and Strength
- Neutralizes Exercise-Induced Free Radicals
- Protects Activity of Antioxidant Enzymes
- Reduces Muscle Fatigue
- Inhibits the Formation of Lactic Acid
Algalif has developed an informative whitepaper with detailed information and scientific studies supporting the benefits of Astalif for use in sports nutrition products. The whitepaper will be available at the Algalif stand K18 at Vitafoods Asia.
Leveraging the environment and assets of its Icelandic location, Algalif makes responsible use of its natural resources including pure, naturally filtered water and renewable energy to process pure, premium quality astaxanthin.
