Value Decisions

A Real-Time Look at Value-Based Decision Making

All of us make many decisions every day. For most things, such as which jacket to wear or where to grab a cup of coffee, there's usually no right answer, so we often decide using values rooted in our past experiences. Now, neuroscientists have identified the part of the mammalian...

The Ridiculously Powerful Antioxidant
That Is Truly in a League of Its Own
We've known for a while now that antioxidants are our most effective weapon against the health-damaging free radicals that cause oxidation and inflammation throughout the body. Free radicals literally accelerate the aging process, making way too many of us feel "old" and tired during what should be the best years of our lives.
And groundbreaking research has shown that a rare, deep red-colored carotenoid found exclusively in a particular ocean plant species is the most powerful antioxidant available in nature.

Study after study has revealed that astaxanthin can provide extraordinary benefits for your energy, muscles, joints, heart, brain, eyes, skin and more.
Uncovered: The Remarkable Ability to
Actually Integrate Into Your Cells!
Unlike most water-soluble antioxidants, which simply circulate throughout your bloodstream, astaxanthin is fat-soluble, which means it has the remarkable ability to actually integrate itself into every cell, tissue and organ in your body where it can neutralize the inflammation-causing free radicals.

That may be why in a test that measured the ability to neutralize a particularly unstable and destructive type of free radical, called singlet oxygen, astaxanthin was shown to be up to:[1]
40 times stronger than beta-carotene
100 times stronger than vitamin E
800 times stronger than CoQ10
And 6,000 times stronger than vitamin C!
Here's What Taking a Triple Dose of Astaxanthin Every Day Can Do for You
For years, the standard dose for astaxanthin was 4 mg, which is what you'll find in most supplements.

More recently, a few professional athletes and marathon runners began experimenting with double—and even triple—doses and seeing spectacular results at the 12 mg dosage level. Some have credited larger doses of astaxanthin with helping them reach previously unthought-of feats of endurance and stamina.

And new study findings confirm what was once their closely guarded secret.

At 12 mg per day, astaxanthin has been shown to:
Neutralize free radicals to protect cells, reduce DNA damage and fight aging[2-4]
Promote a normal inflammatory response body-wide[3,5]
Improve muscle endurance and exercise performance[6-8]
Reduce joint pain and support healthy, flexible joints[9]
Support healthy circulation and overall cardiovascular health[10,11]
Help your brain and nervous system function optimally[12,13]
Relieve eye strain and fatigue, and support near and far vision[14,15]
Protect skin against UV damage, dryness, wrinkles and premature aging[16,17]
Simply put…
Astaxanthin Makes It Easier to Stay Active
and Healthier!
This may seem like a "no brainer," but research has shown that higher levels of physical activity are correlated with a longer lifespan and healthier old age.[18]

Being active—whether it's walking, lifting weights at the gym or ballroom dancing—helps our bodies detoxify and strengthens our immune system. And indeed, there is evidence that exercise has a measurable anti-aging effect on our cells.[19]

Here's a fun fact: Did you know that astaxanthin is what makes salmon's flesh pink? And guess what? Astaxanthin is also what gives salmon their seemingly supernatural ability to achieve marathon swimming feats, leaping up waterfalls and traveling against the current for days.

But today, incredibly convincing evidence indicates that astaxanthin can increase your strength and stamina, and help you exercise longer and feel less sore afterwards—without a big price tag or any side effects.
Amazing Results in This Gold-Standard
Clinical Research
Numerous clinical studies have demonstrated how astaxanthin can help you stay active, exercise longer, feel less sore afterwards, and even burn fat more effectively.

Here's just a small sampling of the incredible results:
Astaxanthin has been shown to help deliver oxygen and energy to the muscle cells that need it during exercise.[4,20]
Astaxanthin reduced levels of lactic acid (the metabolite that really causes you to "feel the burn") during exercise by 28.6%.[8]
Astaxanthin increased muscle endurance in men, enabling them to perform 62% more knee bends while carrying a 90-pound weight![7]
Astaxanthin improved the cycling performance of competitive male endurance cyclists, shaving two minutes off their time in a 20-kilometer trial![6]
Astaxanthin even helped increase fat burn during exercise. Daily doses of 12 mg of astaxanthin resulted in a significant reduction in body fat percentage.[21]
So whether you are an elite athlete, a weekend golfer or just want to increase your ability to do work around the house, astaxanthin can help!
It Gets Even Better! Astaxanthin Also
Helps Your Joints Stay Pain-Free
As we get older, it's not just our muscles that tend to get sore after exercise, it's our joints, too.

One well-known University of Memphis study found that astaxanthin helped ease joint discomfort even after strenuous exercise.[22] Another eight-week double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study evaluated the effect of a 12 mg daily dose of astaxanthin on joint discomfort. While the placebo group's scores essentially remained unaffected by the end of the eight weeks, pain scores decreased by 35%![9]

Astaxanthin also acts to lower important inflammatory markers. In one study, volunteers taking astaxanthin for two months saw their levels of C-reactive protein (CRP) plummet. CRP is an important marker of inflammation in the body—and high CRP levels also affect heart health.[3]
A Boost for Your Mood, Mental Performance,
Focus and Memory
When it comes to brain health, astaxanthin is right up there at the top of the list. Why? Because it is one of the world's only antioxidants that can cross the blood-brain barrier and fight oxidative stress in the brain.

Because of this unique ability, astaxanthin—especially when taken at higher doses—can provide incredibly powerful support for your mood, cognitive health and mental performance.

In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, men and women age 20-64 took 12 mg of astaxanthin for eight weeks. Astaxanthin helped significantly reduce symptoms of mental and physical fatigue, with improvements in cognitive acuity, motivation, concentration and mood.[23]

In another eight-week trial involving postmenopausal women who took 12 mg of astaxanthin per day, astaxanthin helped provide dramatic improvements in mental outlook and reduced signs of stress including tension, eye fatigue, stiff shoulders, constipation, cold skin and difficulty falling asleep.[24]

Other research has shown that taking 12 mg of astaxanthin per day improves accuracy and reaction time in working memory in healthy older adults with complaints of forgetfulness.[13,25]

Astaxanthin also has the ability to cross the blood-retina barrier, which makes it extraordinarily effective at reducing eye strain and supporting clear, healthy vision as you age.[14,15] Another great side benefit of reducing oxidation and inflammation is that your skin will look and feel incredible. In addition to protecting your skin against ultraviolet damage and free radicals, studies have shown that astaxanthin helps elevate collagen levels for a firmer, smoother complexion and boosts cell repair![16,17]
3 Essential Tips for Choosing the
Best Astaxanthin
If you're sold on astaxanthin's amazing benefits, you're probably wondering: What's next? Simple. Find a high-quality astaxanthin supplement in the extra-strength 12 mg daily serving size and at a price you can easily afford.

Here's what you need to know:
1. The only way to get the high levels of astaxanthin shown to provide the full range of remarkable health benefits detailed above is to take a supplement that provides an extra-strength 12 mg per day dose.

2. The only natural source of astaxanthin is the marine algae species Haematococcus pluvialis. Make sure the bottle says "natural astaxanthin" and that it is derived from H. pluvialis. Warning: Don't waste your money on other forms of astaxanthin, especially the synthetic form, which is made from petrochemicals and is far less potent!

3. Make sure the bottle says "natural astaxanthin" and that it is derived from the marine algae species H. pluvialis. Avoid synthetic astaxanthin, which is far less potent.

We've been told our whole lives to eat certain fruits, vegetables, and whole grains to stay in good health.

However, according to Dr. Steven Gundry — a world-renowned heart surgeon — many so called "health foods" in the American diet contain a dangerous toxin, that could be expanding your waistline.

"This toxin causes micro-tears to form in your fragile intestinal-wall — allowing bacteria and waste products to seep into your body." Says Dr. Gundry.

This harmful condition is best known as "leaky gut," and it's affecting millions of people nationwide. Warning signs include weight gain, fatigue, digestive discomfort, stiff, achy joints, and even skin problems.

Dr. Gundry explains, "These side effects are often mistaken for normal signs of aging, because leaky gut usually develops over a matter of years, and sometimes even decades. But I can assure you, the damage caused by these so called "health foods" is far from normal."

The good news is, this problem can be easily fixed from your own home.

"It's very simple, you just have to know which foods are actually healthy, and which contain this hidden toxin," he goes on to explain.

By simply eliminating this harmful toxin, Dr. Gundry has seen thousands of his own patients make swift recoveries. (In fact, he even lost 70lbs himself!)

Now, after years of research, Dr. Gundry has decided to release an informative video to the public — free and uninterrupted — showcasing exactly which foods you need to avoid.

"Good health is one of life's toughest obstacles," he explains. "So, if this video can help people achieve that, I'll be thrilled to hear I was of help."

The video has since gone viral, first being shared by users on Facebook, then being featured on news sites like ABC and CBS.

So far, the comments and feedback have been outstanding, with thousands of Americans feeling better than they have in decades.

Dr. Gundry also serves as the personal physician to many A-list celebrities.

Most notable of which include legendary self-help guru Tony Robbins, Oscar award winning actor Alan Arkin, Grammy award winning singer Usher, and countless fortune 500 executives.

Now, there is one thing Dr. Gundry asks from his viewers: "If watching this helps you take control of your weight back, fight unwanted cravings, increase your energy, ease gas and bloating, or find relief from stiff, achy joints," Dr. Gundry says... "Then please share this video with your friends and loved ones. Together, we can help as many people avoid these health issues as possible."
