They are molecules that fight damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that react with other structures such as cells or DNA and cause damage to them. Antioxidant levels in salmon are high, suggesting benefits against oxidative damage in the body. Astaxanthin is an antioxidant generally present in krill oil but not fish. It is a colorful carotenoid antioxidant is responsible for the red color observed in salmon meat, cooked shellfish, and certain krill oil supplements. Astaxanthin lowers the risk of heart disease by reducing oxidation of LDL (the "bad") cholesterol and increasing HDL (the "good") cholesterol.
