What is Astaxanthin?
Astaxanthin (pronounced Asta – zan – thin) is generated by a microalgae; Haematococcus pluvialis (H. pluvialis) and is consumed by many aquatic animals. It is what makes many of them pink such as salmon and lobsters.
When this algae becomes stressed, astaxanthin is produced in an effort to protect itself.
Astaxanthin has powerful protective qualities making it one of the most powerful free radical fighters known.
500 times stronger than Vitamin E
560 times stronger than Green tea catechins
800 times stronger than CoQ 10
3000 times stronger than Resveratol
6000 times stronger than Vitamin C
Astaxanthin is the most powerful antioxidant. This effect protects cells from damage. Astaxanthin also improves the way the immune system functions. People use astaxanthin for many purposes, including cancer, Alzheimer disease, athletic performance, aging skin, muscle soreness from exercise, diabetus and many others.

WHAT ELSE CAN ASTAXANTHIN DO FOR OUR HEALTH?
To understand more about how astaxanthin can benefit our health, we should first take a step back. One must consider that modern society is loaded with free radicals. From smoking to alcohol, obesity to pollution, UV to stress, there have never been more free radicals in our toxic environments.
These free radicals attack our cells every day, so we need a very strong antioxidant to help us to repair this damage. Without this, our bodies become overloaded with constantly trying to heal and we can end up with an auto immune disorder called chronic inflammation. This is where our immune system goes haywire and if left unchecked, can set off a chain of inflammatory events. These create a whole host of minor ailments and general poor health, which, as we get older, often leads to premature aging, obesity, depression and eventually, chronic disease and cancer. This in a nutshell is why so many people are sickly in modern society.
In order to treat modern general health, ailments, premature ageing and diseases properly, we need to treat chronic inflammation by taking a very strong anti-inflammatory. Astaxanthin isn’t a magic cure-all that is too good to be true. It simply treats the actual root cause of chronic inflammation, rather than purely focusing on a symptom in isolation, such as pain, a rash or stomach acid for example. Once we understand this, it makes perfect sense that a single, powerful, anti-inflammatory supplement can be effective in treating all inflammatory illnesses. Did you know, Inflammatory illnesses make up 97% of all ailments in western society!
Another great feature of astaxanthin is that the side effects are almost all positive. Chances are, if you are suffering from chronic inflammation, you will have more than one ailment. You may take it to tackle your stomach acid and find that it really cleared up your skin. Or you may try it for help with rosacea and find that it really helped your performance down at the gym. Or that you took it for cancer and discovered that it cleared up your liver spots. Almost everyone notices the mental benefits too, which include better memory, sharper focus and less depression or scatter brain.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
Astaxanthin has been classified as a generally safe supplement in the USA.
Astaxanthin is 100% natural and has no serious side effects.
The only side effects we have observed are a slightly reddish stool and in rare cases some stomach pain.

ASTAXANTHIN AND CANCER
WHY ARE WE GETTING SO MUCH CANCER?
Our western environment is also a breeding ground for cancer. Other factors include diet and obesity, a sedentary lifestyle, eating too much sugar or food that turns into sugar, such as alcohol, processed food and fast release carbs such as bread and pastry. Consumption of fried food is also known to be carcinogenic Smoking, Polluted air and water, exposure to chemicals all around us as well as radiation from our phones.
CANCER IS A TRICKY CUSTOMER
Our body’s immune system has the natural capacity to detect and destroy abnormal cells, thereby preventing the development of many cancers. However, cancer cells are sometimes able to avoid detection and destruction by the immune system. We now know that the reason certain cancers can be so hard to treat, may be due to the fact that cancer cells have this ability to disguise themselves from being detected by our white blood cells, which are the main weapon of our immune system. This gives them free reign to spread and develop tumours, without being identified and attacked by our immune system.
ASTAXANTHIN – A NOVEL APPROACH TO CANCER TREATMENT
Most traditional cancer treatments target the symptoms of a cancer, which are usually expressed as tumours. Common treatments include radiation, chemotherapy, surgery or drugs. Astaxanthin works in a different way; it has a unique molecular structure that appears to enable it to target the cancer at a cellular level and thereby inactivate the cancers ability to disguise itself from our immune system. By doing this, it could enable the body to fight off the cancer itself, as it takes away cancers secret weapon; that of disguise.
Astaxanthin can also assist with keeping cells healthy, by helping the cell protect the membrane of its outer shell.
Astaxanthin is also a potent anti-inflammatory, proven to be 1000 times stronger than aspirin. This feature is very beneficial to the immune system when fighting off any illness, as well as promoting overall health and fitness.
Astaxanthin is a powerful and natural immunotherapy supplement, with almost no known side effects. In fact, almost all the side effects are actually positive, due to the protection it gives to all our cells, not just the cancerous ones.
ValAsta is a mixture of Glucosidic Astaxanthin and Olive Oil using a proprietary method to create a Liposomal delivery. This Patented process of encapsulating the astaxanthin molecule inside a fat molecule took Valasta 8 years to develop. We use high frequency energy to do this, which makes the astaxanthin molecule far more absorbable inside the body.
One would think that all astaxanthin products are created equal. When we go shopping for supplements, we expect that they are all held under the same scrutiny that the food we eat and water we drink is held under. Unfortunately, this is not the case.
Knowing the country of origin for your astaxanthin is extremely important. Some countries do not regulate or have nearly the scrutiny that the United States has in regard to natural astaxanthin supplements.
Since astaxanthin is usually found in nature it is affected by its environment. When the air and water that the astaxanthin is grown in is contaminated by external factors and environmental pollutants it degrades the astaxanthin quality.
Some astaxanthin manufactures claim they are “made in the USA” whereas in fact they import their raw astaxanthin material from overseas. Since there is limited regulation in the quality control from overseas raw astaxanthin, pollutants remain. There is no way to remove the pollutants completely in the end product for the consumer.
ValAsta’s astaxanthin is grown and produced in the USA in closed vessels. The extraction of the astaxanthin is done under strict guidelines using critical CO2 extraction techniques.
Some supplement manufacturers will add fillers or have ingredients not necessary for absorption, others provide only dry powder which is destroyed by the stomach acid.
ValAsta is highly concentrated one capsule can hold up to 40mg. We do not encapsulate the ValAsta product as the heat used during this process may degrade the astaxanthin. Many clients opt to fill the empty capsules when their order arrives. Others just add the liquid oil astaxanthin to a spoonful of peanut butter, yogurt, or applesauce.
Finally, many of the brands on the market do not make it past the stomach acid to be adsorbed in the small bowel not giving the desired results.
Many ValAsta clients report increased energy, reduction in arthritic pain, better REM sleep, regular bowel movement, and general wellbeing within a few days.
ValAsta Astaxanthin is a food supplement with the antioxidant power of 2.5 salmon ., 1200 cups blueberries - 1000 carrots and 1000 Tomatoes - it’s easy to get that power in daily pumps- to fight the free radicals we take in daily from living on the planet.

Review of the NIH Study on Inflammation
Inflammation! We usually think of inflammation when a cut on the skin becomes infected, swells up, turns red, and hurts; or when an injury such as a sprained knee swells and is red and hot to the touch. Those are signs of acute, or short-lived, inflammation due to injury or infection. What many of us do not realize is that inflammation can occur to your body’s cells or tissue and may not present any outward symptoms for years; this is called Chronic Inflammation. Chronic inflammatory diseases contribute to more than half of deaths worldwide. What causes this Chronic
Inflammation to the cells? ROS.
Reactive Oxygen Species or ROS
ROS is the cause of Chronic inflammation. ROS is oxygen free radicals which are highly reactive and unstable molecules that are produced at the cellular level in the body as a byproduct of metabolism. Free radicals are atoms that contain an unpaired electron. Due to this lack of a stable number of outer shell electrons, they are in a constant search to bind with another electron to stabilize themselves—a process that can cause damage to DNA and other parts of human cells. This damage causes chronic inflammation and the development of many diseases and accelerates the aging process.
There are many causes for development of ROS including:
• Environmental chemicals - pollution, household chemicals, gas exhaust etc.
• Nutrition - Diets high in refined grains, alcohol, and processed meats/foods
• Social and cultural changes – Disrupted sleep patterns, shift worker,
• psychosocial stress, work stress, family stress
• Developmental origins – Childhood obesity, exposure to microbes in infancy, and prenatal conditions.
"Antioxidant" is a general term for any compound that can counteract ROS. Because free radicals (ROS) lack a full complement of electrons, they steal electrons from other molecules and damage those molecules in the process. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals by giving up some of their own electrons. In making this sacrifice, they act as a natural "off" switch for the free radicals. This helps break a chain reaction that can affect other molecules in the cell and other cells in the body. Glutathione which is produced by the cell and is a natural antioxidant to fight the free radicals. Glutathione is produced naturally in the liver via the synthesis of certain amino acids. The production of Glutathione plays an essential role in setting up a delicate balance to maintain good health. However, as we age, women over forty men over fifty, the production of Glutathione begins to decline. When this delicate balance is upset, is when the increase of ROS begins to accumulate causing the development of chronic inflammation. Unfortunately taking supplemental glutathione by mouth does not appear to be an effective way to get it into your body. Glutathione supplements are broken down by the enzymes in the stomach. You must supplement with antioxidant foods that are able to be digested. ValAsta is a food supplement.
A measurement of chronic inflammation can be done through a simple lab test called a High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein test or HS-CRP. This measurement should be less than three.
Chronic inflammation is associated with many diseases:
• Autoimmune diseases - multiple sclerosis, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis.
• Cardiovascular diseases - high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
• Gastrointestinal disorders - inflammatory bowel disease and ulcerative colitis.
• Lung diseases - asthma and COPD.
• Mental disorders - autism or depression.
• Metabolic disease - insulin resistance or Type 2 diabetes.
• Neurodegenerative diseases - Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s disease.
• Cancers - PDL-1 expressed cancers including colon, breast, lung, prostate, and others.
Fighting the Free Radicals and ROS
Preventing the excess production of free radicals in the body is often quite an easy task to achieve. You can enjoy a healthy and full life if you reduce the Chronic Inflammation. Some of the best ways to fight free radical damage and prevent Chronic Inflammation, includes:
• Consume foods rich in antioxidants. Taking Patented ValAsta Astaxanthin is the easiest way to good health. It is the strongest natural antioxidant known.
• Stop smoking! not easy but do it you must.
• Limit alcohol consumption. Enjoy a drink or two, but limit to that.
• Maintain an active lifestyle. Just a 20-minute walk per day.
• Abstain from consuming too many processed foods.
• Reduce the anxiety and stress in your life.
