The immune system is a complex and sophisticated system containing organs, tissues, cells, proteins, and chemicals. Since oxygen radicals support immune health, as for many metabolic and physiological processes, an equilibrium (homeostasis) between radical production and their antioxidant-linked inactivation helps maintain health.
The immune cells’ functions are strongly influenced by the antioxidant/oxidant balance, and since these cells have a high percentage of polyunsaturated fatty acids in their plasma membrane and they generally produce more oxidative products, these cells are particularly sensitive to oxidative stress. Therefore, the antioxidants levels in these cells play a pivotal role in maintaining a healthy response to oxidative stress.
Both astaxanthin and vitamin C have been shown to support healthy immune functions in variety of studies*.
Astaxanthin – was shown to support a healthy immune system in in-vitro assays, animal models and healthy individuals in several manners.
Vitamin C – In addition to its biosynthetic and antioxidant functions, vitamin C plays a role in supporting healthy immune function and exerts a multitude of beneficial effects on cellular functions of both the innate and adaptive immune system*.
