Effect of Astaxanthin Supplementation on Salivary IgA, Oxidative Stress, and Inflammation in Young Soccer Players

In the study “Effect of Astaxanthin Supplementation on Salivary IgA, Oxidative Stress, and Inflammation in Young Soccer Players,” authors Ivana Baralic, Marija Andjelkovic, Brizita Djordjevic, Nenad Dikic, Nenad Radivojevic, Violeta Suzin-Zivkovic, Sanja Radojevic-Skodric, and Snezana Pejic indicate that Asx supplementation improves sIgA response and attenuates muscle damage, thus preventing inflammation induced by rigorous physical training. The findings also point that Asx could show significant physiologic modulation in individuals with mucosal immunity impairment or under conditions of increased oxidative stress and inflammation.
