The molecular structure of astaxanthin is long and thin, with both ends having "polar" groups that are compatible with water while the middle segment is "nonpolar" and not water-compatible. This molecular structure allows astaxanthin to move into cell membranes without substantially affecting the membrane structure, astaxanthin is able to provide potent protection against cell damage, like the damage caused by free radicals. All cells have membranes and it is vital to maintain the health of these membranes so that the cell may function properly. Every cell membrane is an ultrathin sheet of lipids into which enzymes and other catalytic proteins are inserted. Intense metabolic activities within cell membranes typically generate highly reactive "free radical" substances. The damage caused by these free radicals can be attenuated by antioxidant activity. Astaxanthin provides cell membranes with a potent antioxidant defense against free radicals.
