Could astaxanthin be an internal sunscreen?

without comments

This week’s article focuses on Astaxanthin, an up and coming cure-all. Among other things, it is claimed to be an “internal sunscreen.”

It turns out that “scientific” studies on astaxanthin matter that are referenced by many are actually fabricated! Cyanotech, a major producer of astaxanthin, has been publishing decoy articles under alternate names!
