More and more quality studies are coming out which link the health of your body, specifically your heart, to the quality of your nutrition. Unfortunately science is slow to spread news to the general public and faces manipulation and disinformation from industries that lose out as a result of people naturally taking better care of their health, specifically the pharmaceutical industry.

There is often a set pattern of information manipulation, called disinformation, used to keep the public in the dark and keep powerful industries making immense profit from unnecessary suffering. Seven ways science is lying to you:

Bias: Industry conducted studies are massively financed and create bias in the volume of information.

Fake: Some studies have data removed or statistical manipulation to change the impact of the data.

Bribe: Scientists are paid to speak on behalf of industry and make the biased science seem legitimate.

Silence: Scientists who speak out against the profitable status quo are threatened and their reputation damaged.

Controversy: Empowering studies are belittled in the public eye by the media to make them seem trivial.

Fixed: Regulatory bodies are manipulated by money and heavily lobbied to influence policies.

Disguised: Many health organisations and charities, who seem unbiased, are in fact heavily funded by pharma.

Choosing to educate yourself with empowering science is the only way to overcome the industry brainwashing. Nutrition is medicine and science is slowly proving it.

Antioxidant Power

One of the most influential discoveries of our team has been astaxanthin a powerful carotenoid pigment. This immensely powerful antioxidant is derived from microalgae or certain seafood like salmon. The unique molecular structure of astaxanthin supports heart health even better than traditional antioxidants such as vitamin E or beta-carotene.  It reduces cardiovascular risk factors and promotes key heart health indicators (C-reactive protein, cholesterol and blood lipids).

Exciting results from several key clinical studies are clearly demonstrating that this powerful natural chemical reduces bad cholesterol and free fatty acids, encourages healthy blood flow and restores arterial health.

Astaxanthin reduces free radicals in the body and protects cells from oxidation (which is kind of like ‘rust’) reducing oxidative load and stress. Another key benefit is that astaxanthin is immune to oxidation, meaning that unlike other antioxidants it never becomes pro-oxidative.

The super-antioxidant powers which benefit the heart are combined with a number of other key health benefits including:

  • Protecting the eyes from UV-light and cataracts
  • Improving skin elasticity while reducing wrinkles
  • Supporting the immune system

We were so impressed with the emerging scientific evidence to suggest this powerful substance could be a game changer in nutritional health that we reformulated our product to include it. Find out more about the strong scientific evidence supporting another one of nature’s miracles in our nutritional science section.
