Frezzor (the company): FREZZOR Antioxidant Black contains the most powerful
antioxidant on the planet - Astaxanthin extracted from New Zealand algae -
known as the "King of the Antioxidants", and is blended with the
extract of Turmeric called Curcumin along with other life-enhancing
anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories from raw cold-pressed kiwifruit seed oil,
flax seed oil, pine bark extract, grape seed extract, kiwifruit extract,
boysenberry extract, and blackcurrant extract. FREZZOR Antioxidant Black
provides the most powerful, pure, undenatured, all-natural lipid and
water-based source of anti-oxidants on the planet providing the essential
protection that your body needs to function at full capacity to experience
superior vitality, wellness and protection from the effects of aging cells. The
antioxidants found in FREZZOR will
boost your body's natural ability to produce its own antioxidants more
effectively by activating the protein Nrf2 which will switch on a network of
antioxidant enzymes and genes that protect the DNA within our cells
assisting in the regulation of the body's aging process which is critical in
the fight against oxidative stress....Astaxanthin
is the most potent antioxidant discovered to date being 6000 times more potent
in its antioxidant properties than vitamin C, 800 times stronger than Co-Q10,
and 550 times stronger than green tea. Their website is www.frezzor.com.

Carotenoids are used for systemic photoprotection in humans. Regarding mechanisms underlying photoprotective effects of carotenoids, here we compared the modulation of UVA-related injury by carotenoids. Human dermal fibroblasts (HDF) were exposed to moderate doses of UVA, which stimulated apoptosis, increased levels of reactive oxygen species and thiobarbituric acid reactive substances, decreased antioxidant enzymes activities, promoted membrane perturbation, and induced the expression of heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1). The carotenoids astaxanthin (AX), canthaxanthin (CX) and beta-carotene (betaC) were delivered to HDF 24 h before exposure to UVA. Astaxanthin exhibited a pronounced photoprotective effect and counteracted all of the above-mentioned UVA-induced alterations to a significant extent. beta-Carotene only partially prevented the UVA-induced decline of catalase and superoxide dismutase activities, but it increased membrane damage and stimulated HO-1 expression. Moreover, betaC dose-dependently induced caspase-3 activity following UVA exposure. In contrast, CX had no effect on oxidative damage, except for HO-1 expression, which was augmented. Uptake of AX by fibroblasts was higher than that of the other two carotenoids. The photostability of the three compounds in fibroblasts was AX > CX >> betaC. The data indicate that the oxo-carotenoid AX has a superior preventive effect towards photo-oxidative changes in cell culture.
