Effects Of Astaxanthin Supplementation On Lipid Peroxidation
Notes for this study:
|| (µmol/L) Mean and SD. Placebo: before 71.6 ± 22.8, after 63.0 ± 15.9. Astaxanthin: before 67.0 ± 17.8, after 61.5 ± 19.4.

There wasn't a statistically significant difference in the change of c-reactive protein, though there was a notable increase in the astaxanthin group and a decrease in the placebo group. There wasn't a statistically significant or notable difference for the change in IL-6, and these were not comparable at baseline. There wasn't a statistically significant difference in serum IL-2 receptor, though astaxanthin saw a greater increase, and there was a greater increase in uric acid in the astaxanthin group, but this wasn't statistically significant.
