  • Bio-Life Astaxanthin 6mg for Skin Health


    Astaxanthin 6mg for skin health

    Ever since I went keto and then low-carb last year, I have been quite obsessed with supplements that would improve my overall health, immune system and also my skin. I wanted to also detox my skincare regime as I have too many. I was getting tired of keeping up with all the beauty fads and wanted a break. Then I came across Astaxanthin by BiO-LiFE. The name is mighty weird like some space name! Here's how to pronounce it "Asta zan thin".

    Asta means crab and Xanthin is similar to xanthophyll (yellow leaves) which refers to the color and natural source of Astaxanthin.

    I read into it and was surprised to discover many benefits with it when researching online about keto-friendly antioxidant supplements. I have always associated superfruits as the supers of antioxidants but never occur to me that the microalgae Haematococcus Pluvialis which is also found in krill, shrimp, lobsters, and salmon are also high in antioxidants!.

    which is the greatest natural source of Astaxanthin

    What's Astaxanthin?
    Astaxanthin is a naturally occurring bright red-orange color pigment (Carotenoid) found primarily in marine organisms. Due to the strong antioxidant potency of Astaxanthin, it can serve as a skin guard by creating an internal protection shield in the skin to slow down the effect of aging. BiO-LiFE Astaxanthin 6mg is a high strength natural Astaxanthin extracted from microalgae which are clinically tested to produce visible cosmetic benefits on people who have aging skin such as wrinkles, loose skin, etc - BiO-LiFE

    There are seriously many benefits to taking Astaxanthin, but I would like to share more about the beauty benefit a.k.a. skin health of it today. Close friends who know me, know too well that I am a seeker of anti-aging products such as collagen drinks, bird's nest, supplements, and goo (skincare). And with this, I found out that the algae are the only Astaxanthin source that acts as a natural sunscreen to protect itself from UV rays by increasing the skin's resistance to UVA and UVB ray.

    Somewhat like a skin guard to protect the skin from the inside out!

    Comes in an amber glass bottle for sunlight protection

    when I first opened my bottle, I was surprised to see the pill’s color!
    only one pill a day is needed

    Over the course of two months, I have been taking this supplement Astaxanthin 6mg once a day. It comes in a pack of 30 vegetable capsules for RM120. Good news for those on Keto or low carb diet! This is keto-friendly, and it helps to improve fat metabolism and increase muscle endurance and recovery which can help in weight loss along with exercise. 

    Tip: It is non-GMO and contains no added sugar, yeast, milk derivatives, wheat or corn starch, gluten, preservatives, and artificial flavors.

    before and after two months

    I started in December, and that was a super stressful month as work and community activities were weighing me down to the extent of me sacrificing my skincare regime. To be accurate, I forgot that I needed to use my moisturizers and serums during this period. My skin wasn't flaky, peeling or whatsoever that made me go "I need to use skincare". Only after a few weeks did I realize I was not using my H.A, oils, and creams and I trace back to when it started (which is after I started taking this supplement).

    In short, I am impressed that my skin condition looked healthy and youthful throughout the course of two months without skincare! To be fair I have normal-dry skin, so it probably did enough that I didn't realize I needed to splash skincare on my face.

    P.S: You can still use it while maintaining your daily skincare.

    I can't say if there was any improvement in wrinkles because I never notice I had any. The most significant difference would be my face wasn't flaky or dry and maintained well without skincare during this period.

    I also notice I was sleeping well into the night (if this helps?).

    serving as nature’s strong antioxidant

    If you're looking for anti-aging + inner beauty + antioxidant + immune health + inflammation + joint health, then you can consider this. I take the one BiO-LiFE Astaxanthin 6mg which costs RM120 but if u buy online you can find a good deal. Available at leading pharmacies such as Alpro, Caring, Guardian and Healthlane.
