A new study shows that astaxanthin can prevent diabetic patients with renal diseases. The study found that astaxanthin can protect high glucose levels in the cell. Patients with diabetes are often accompanied by abnormal high blood glucose content, have a high oxidative stress. High blood glucose content and high oxidative stress and diabetes complications such as kidney disease have a contact.

Researchers in Women's college from Pusan, Korea and Japan toyama university said that the evidence in all studies shows that astaxanthin in diabetic nephrosis patient's oxidative stress, inflammation, and cell apoptosis adjustment showed functions. Therefore, astaxanthin manufacturer think that astaxanthin can be as antidiabetic effective, functional increase and tonic.

Global astaxanthin the estimated market value for 190 million euros, mainly used as a natural pigment, enhance some fish such as salmon color, also as a Cosmetics material. People use astaxanthin market is increasing, it is estimated that the current market value for 20 million to 30 million euros. Its main health benefits is the eye care and skin care, also can be used for joint and central nervous system health. Allegedly the antioxidant ability is 500 times that of vitamin E. Most of the astaxanthin from the common red in the extract. The common red is usually fish and shellfish animal food, and make them into pink.

South Korea and Japan’s astaxanthin suppliers hired researchers to examine whether there is any astaxanthin can reduce high blood glucose patients oxidative stress of harmful effect.

The researchers said that in diabetes conditions, many of the destruction of molecules, including DNA, fatty acid peroxide product, and advanced glycosylation end product (AGEs) eventually led to the abnormal of diabetes complications such as kidney disease, etc. But the study found that, after high glucose process after the cells and then cured astaxanthin, results astaxanthin effectively inhibit the fatty acid peroxidation, total active particle, peroxide and nitric oxide content. At the same time, the inflammatory markers such as can be induced nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) and epoxy synthase 2 (COX - 2) were also inhibition.

Based on the result of this research, the researchers said that astaxanthin activity benefits are within the cell, the permeability of astaxanthin plays an important role. In this study they did not test intracellular astaxanthin content, but compared with other research materials, we think that astaxanthin in cells can be local gathered enough concentration play inhibiting oxidative stress, inflammation, and the effect of cell apoptosis.
