Product Overview

Description

  • Supports Eye Health

  • Healthy Inflammatory Response
  • Vegetarian Formula
  • GMP-Quality Assured
  • A Dietary Supplement

Astaxanthin is a naturally occurring carotenoid that, because of its unique structure, provides a wide range of antioxidant benefits. Because Astaxanthin is able to cross the blood-brain and blood-retina barriers, it can deliver potent antioxidant protection directly to the eye, brain, and nervous system. Zanthin Astaxanthin has been patented for its ability to support retinal and overall ocular health. Scientific studies have also demonstrated that Astaxanthin can help to support a healthy inflammatory response.

Sensitive Individuals Should Proceed With Caution
Every time I have taken Astaxanthin, I have had an extreme reaction with my immune system. My glands and lymph nodes in my neck have swollen up dramatically and painfully. I have had body aches, runny nose, complete feeling of exhaustion. I have tried it on 3 separate occasions and each time I had the same reaction. I did take it along with Krill oil. I am a sensitive person and have to start out slowly with some supplements. I think the amount of the Astaxanthin was just too much for me and it put my immune system into overdrive. It was very alarming and made me very sick and I was not able to function for a WEEK. It concerns me that if I were to continue taking it, I could end up with a self induced form of autoimmune disease. Normally I am an advocate of supplements, having improved my health with their use, and after reading all of the positive reviews and information on this product, I was looking forward to experiencing some of those positive benefits of Astaxanthin for myself. So I am very disappointed to say that I won't be taking this again. That would be a dangerous mistake in my situation. Sensitive individuals that are considering this supplement should proceed with caution. And if you notice a heightened increase in your immune response, you might want to reconsider. I've even began to wonder if the amount of Astaxanthin in the krill oil is too much for me. I think I will be taking it only every other day just to be on the safe side.

Great stuff

Posted by 5459327738545097021 on Jan 04, 2017

Been taking this supplement for almost a year and one of the perks has been my cataracts have improved. When I went to eye doc last year he said I might need surgery on my cataracts in a few years. Then this year he said my eyes had improved and was surprised. There might be a link there.

I like the small size

Posted by Reviewer1891763 on Dec 01, 2016

The small size of the softgels is great. My husband and I take it for our eyes and for its powerful antioxidant (possibly anti-cancer) properties.
