AX3 Bio-Pure Astaxanthin Extends Lifespan in NIH-Funded Longevity Study

AX3 Life, a human longevity company, announced breakthrough life extension findings related to its longevity supplement, AX3 Bio-Pure Astaxanthin—a highly bioavailable, pure, and environmentally sustainable form of astaxanthin that safely fights inflammaging and other hallmarks of aging to improve lifespan and healthspan. AX3 Bio-Pure Astaxanthin can be used in read, cookies, cakes, brownies, crackers, nutrient bars, and anything baked.

AX3 Bio-Pure Astaxanthin was evaluated in an important longevity study conducted by the Interventions Testing Program (ITP), a peer-reviewed program supported by the National Institute on Aging (NIA), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The ITP is widely recognized as the gold standard in longevity research and uses lifespan as its primary endpoint. Conducting lifespan studies in humans would require decades, so the ITP’s rigorous testing of lifespan in laboratory mice represents the most credible and practical assessment of mammalian lifespan presently available.

Results of the multi-year ITP study demonstrated that AX3 Bio-Pure Astaxanthin extended the median lifespan of male mice by 12% with strong statistical significance (p=0.003). Dosing started when the mice were middle aged and showed a consistent survival benefit versus control animals throughout their lifespans. Astaxanthin has also been shown to increase lifespan in several non-mammalian model organisms (yeast, roundworms, fruit flies), and the ITP has now extended such findings to mammals (mice).

“This study provides a new pathway in the quest to advance human longevity, because astaxanthin is the first agent in the ITP’s 20-year history to demonstrate a greater than 10% increase in lifespan that is also exceptionally safe for chronic use and broadly accessible as a dietary supplement,” said Dave Watumull, AX3 Life Co-Founder and CEO and co-author of the GeroScience paper reporting these findings. “This study underscores why astaxanthin, and in particular AX3 Bio-Pure Astaxanthin, should be a key part of everyone’s longevity regimen.”

Full study results were published on December 2, 2023, in GeroScience, a premier, peer-reviewed journal that publishes cutting-edge research related to the biology of aging. Top-line study results were presented earlier this year by AX3 Life at the ONEFUTURE summit on Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island.

“After 25 years of working to advance the research and development of astaxanthin, we are thrilled to see astaxanthin’s utility for longevity demonstrated in this very reputable, independent study,” said David Watumull, AX3 Life Co-Founder and co-author of the above-referenced paper in GeroScience. “Our mission is to help people live longer, healthier lives, and if you extrapolate these results to humans, it could translate to a median lifespan increase of nearly a decade, showing the power astaxanthin may have to transform lives.”
