Now within a few hours, people can fly from the Earth to the other side of the Earth by plane. If you fly long distances on your plane, you can control your daily activities: the circadian rhythm (also known as the "biological clock"), such as eating and sleeping, can be disrupted. It takes a few days for your body clock to adjust to the new circadian rhythm. This is called the jet lag reaction.
Natural astaxanthin is a red carotenoid found in ornamental fish and salmon, shrimp, etc. It is also the strongest antioxidant ever discovered. Its antioxidant activity is 1000 times that of vitamin E, and it is widely used in international first-line cosmetics, health food, and pharmaceutical fields. Studies have shown that astaxanthin can significantly inhibit lipid peroxidation in the brain such as chemotherapy (Cobalt 60 irradiated brain).
The research of Kuzie Yoshishin from Japan confirmed that astaxanthin has the ability to normalize the circadian rhythm of living organisms, can effectively increase endogenous melatonin, adjust the time difference, and obtain the patent: EP1283038, the patent number can be The full text was found in Google search "EP1283038".
In addition, the invention study also determined that the time difference adjustment can be carried out by ingesting astaxanthin. Vitamin E does not have this effect. This effect can be attributed to the powerful antioxidant effects of astaxanthin, which is highly susceptible to oxidation by oxidative factors in the body.
At the same time, it is pointed out that the recommended dosage for astaxanthin for adjusting the time difference is 25-50mg/day, which varies from person to person.
