Ronit Hoffman has her expertise in aging and passion in improving the health and wellbeing. Her innovative and pioneering life extension model based on genetics and biochemical approaches creates a new way for understanding the effect of astaxanthin on life span. She has built this model after years of experience in research and collaboration with several leading labs. Her research which was awarded the Silberman ife science institute Polak prize showed that astaxanthin affects plants, worms, rodents and human cells. This finding can encourage the consumption of astaxanthin by humans and in this way prolonging their life-span.
