We all have something called a FOXO3 gene. It helps protect us against aging.
And now researchers at the University of Hawaii have identified a compound that can boost the FOXO3 gene. They fed mice either normal food or food containing a low or high dose of something called CDX-085, a compound being developed by a for-profit pharmaceutical company.
The animals that were fed the higher amount of the compound experienced a significant increase in the activation of the FOXO3 gene in their heart tissue. In fact, there was a nearly 90% increase in the activation of the FOXO3 "longevity gene" in the mice fed the higher dose of CDX-085.3
What is CDX-085, you ask?
It's a fancy code name for a synthetic form of astaxanthin.
Possibly the strongest antioxidant in the world, astaxanthin is part of the carotenoid family of nutrients, including beta-carotene. Pink-colored foods have a huge antioxidant benefit thanks to this secret nutrient.
Astaxanthin may just be the best antioxidant for DNA protection. It's 6,000 times more effective for that than vitamin C, 800 times more than CoQ10, and 550 times more than vitamin E or green tea.4
The study at University of Hawaii studied synthetic astaxanthin that will have to undergo human trials before it can be sold. But you don't have to turn to synthetic sources to benefit from the longevity power of astaxanthin.
The Best Sources of Astaxanthin
There are several nutritional sources of astaxanthin readily available in your grocery store. Salmon is the best food source. But be sure to look for wild sources of the pink fish.
Wild salmon contains over 450% more astaxanthin than farmed salmon. Four ounces of farm-raised salmon contains less than 1 mg of astaxanthin. The same amount of wild-caught sockeye salmon contains a healthy 4.5 mg.
You can also find astaxanthin in other pink-colored seafood like lobster, crab, red sea bream, shrimp and salmon roe.
You can also take an astaxanthin supplement. I recommend at least 10-12 mg per day, in divided doses. To get the full benefits, take it with food, or with a tablespoon of olive oil.
