Recently, a new mouse experiment conducted by Chinese and Japanese researchers showed that astaxanthin, the raw material of plant extracts, has super anti-aging ability and also improves liver and muscle function.
In this study, Chinese and Japanese researchers used an accelerated model to evaluate the preventive effect of astaxanthin in anti-aging. The mice received long-term dual treatment of D-galactose and jet lag. The researchers divided the mice into 3 groups, a control group, a treatment group (daily aseptic injection of D-galactose and jet lag), and an astaxanthin group (with daily supplement of 0.01% astaxanthin and D-galactose) Injection and jet lag treatment), the jet lag is a 12-hour day/night cycle, once every three days.
After 6 weeks of treatment, the researchers found that astaxanthin had a protective effect on the liver of old mice. This may be because astaxanthin can up-regulate the mRNA expression of galactose-1-phosphate uridine yltransferase, which helps increase the metabolism of D-galactose. In the swimming test, astaxanthin can also improve the muscle endurance of old mice. The above results are related to the reduction of oxidative stress in the serum of mice, the increase of antioxidant enzyme activity and the increase of mRNA expression in the body. In addition, astaxanthin can also repair age-related gene expression regulation disorders, which are caused by injection of D-galactose in the liver and kidney of mice and jet lag.
As a powerful antioxidant, this test shows that astaxanthin can inhibit the acceleration of aging caused by D-galactose and jet lag, improve liver metabolism of D-galactose, improve muscle function and prevent liver weight Loss. The health effects of astaxanthin can be partly attributed to its ability to reduce oxidative stress in serum and marginal tissues, as well as to improve the abnormal regulation of age-related gene expression.
In the future, related research on astaxanthin will focus on the therapeutic effects and detailed molecular mechanisms in order to better understand the role of astaxanthin in fighting aging and related diseases. In general, astaxanthin is a potential anti-aging material.
