Nutrients and bioactive molecules in foods can influence our health in many ways; by directly interacting with metabolic pathways, by fueling growth, and by modulating gene expression.

This preventative healthcare approach is relevant to individuals concerned with aging muscles (i.e. sarcopenia), muscles prone to injury (i.e. athletes), and unloaded muscles (i.e. astronauts). The patent highlights research in which AstaReal® Astaxanthin was able to lower rates of muscle atrophy in response to muscle denervation and nerve injury. AstaReal® Astaxanthin shifted gene expression profiles to favor the maintenance of healthy muscle mass.
