iHerb Haul containing collagen, NAC and astaxanthin

iHerb Haul – Collagen, NAC, Astaxanthin

iHerb haul brought me my three favorite supplements today! Collagen, N-Acetyl Cysteine and Astaxanthin are real powerhouse supplements that can bring health and virility to anyone.

Why should everyone be on these three supplements? Let’s see what they can do for you.


Collagen is what makes our skin, joints and tendons. It’s the main ingredient in our body that keeps us firm…, and young! Why is it important for us to supplement with this?

The thing is that food nowadays is low in collagen. Our nutrition in this case used to be better. Today we mostly eat very clean cuts of meats, no skin, no bone marrow, no broths and the minced meats are much more clean meat based than yesterday. We should make sure that we always have collagen at hand.

We wrote more in-depth article about skin health a while back. It has a longer view to what collagen will do for you. Read the article here: How to get glowing skin

N-Acetyl Cysteine

Glutathione! Mark my words, You’ll hear about glutathione (GSH) much more in few years. NAC is the key ingredient in GSH biosynthesis. Whatha heck is this glutatihioninone?

Glutathione is the master antioxidant of our body. It is used constantly and manufactured constantly. Body consumes it in high rates when it is continuously fighting free radicals and the oxidization caused by them. It’s very important to feed the body with the right and needed raw materials for glutathione. What are these raw materials?

It just happens to be that the main building blocks for glutathione are found in NAC and in collagen! GSH is made of L-Cysteine (NAC), L-Glutamic Acid and Glycine. The latter two are found in plentiful amounts in collagen.

Fuel up your glutathione biosynthesis and enjoy the bug, blizzard and draught -proof immunity!

iHerb haul also brought me 7 pcs of astaxanthin from trials-product. This is a superb antioxidant, just like glutathione is. Astaxanthin is something that our body doesn’t generate by itself. If want to enjoy what astaxanthin has to offer we need to consume it as a supplement. So what it does?

Astaxanthin is super free radical killer. Astaxanthin is known to be one of the rare compounds that never acts poisonous. Many good antioxidants like vitamin E, vitamin C will go “rancid” and at some points turn into a pro-oxidants which is bad. Astaxanthin never does this.

Astaxanthin can aid your body with ATP-production (fast muscle power) and it can repair age related eye and skin problems. It is documented in a study that elderly people who tested astaxanthin product did increase their grip strength by 60%! This is really something!
