A substance called astaxanthin can be found in all of the local grocery stores and drug stores. Bio-Aston is a big name her in the astaxanthin arena and is manufactured in Hawaii Big Island. Taking astaxanthin helps provide a level of protection against sunburn and helps decrease the aches and pains associated with exercise the following day. It seems to be somewhat of an anti-inflammatory.
Besides turmeric and fish oil that can manage the discomfort associated with the back pain, Bio-Aston is a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. I’ve been taking 12mg of Bio-Aston once in the morning with fish oil and turmeric. This astaxanthin has some ability to protect oneself from sunburn to a slight degree and it provides an anti-inflammatory benefit. It is most useful in the potential sunburn protection and can reduce the level of sunburn due to overexposure to the sun.
Combing it with the fish oil and turmeric seems to be a no-brainer in my fight against inflammation and continuous lower back discomfort. If you are over 50, you can take a look at astaxanthin and do your own research to determine if it is worth adding to your supplement regime.
