iHerb Customer Reviews
I've got a nice tan this summer, with little sunburn. My eyes were previously very sensitive to light, but this summer I've been able to go without sunglasses on cloudy days and at night. It was previously not possible. The greatest impact of the product however, I was completely unprepared for. All my life I have been struggling with the mosquitoes. They have ruined many vacations for me. They love me, but I have been very sensitive to their venom. This has meant that I have had major blisters on big parts of my body, which has been insanely itchy. Had I been exposed to mosquitoes, the same mosquito bite could bother me for up to six weeks. This meant that I had to stay away from places where mosquitoes were particularly troublesome. This has placed limitations on what I could join during the summer. This summer however, has been a totally new experience. I've met a lot of mosquitoes and many have bitten, but it has hardly bothered me. A sparse itching immediately and a couple of hours after the bite, but little inconvenience. I can not find any other reason why this has happened, than Astaxanthin (8mg a day) and is delighted that I came across this product. I also have noticed a big improvement in my nose, as previously was constantly clogged. Completely clear airway nowadays...
This has helped with my rosacea. It is also brilliant at stopping the production of DHT which is beneficial to someone with seborrheic dermatitis such as myself. Love.
Not only a potent free radical scavenger but an excellent product for joints as well

I had a painful hip joint until I took this stuff (in addition to Silica and Coral Calcium). An added bonus is that my skin looks amazing too. My husband says I look much younger. I'm sure my eyes have improved as well. Everyone should take this. It gives your skin some protection from the sun as well, a wonderful bonus.

Astaxanthin is a very healthy supplement and is good for me,but i feel a little stomachache with the pills. May be because of the external colour, i suffer several food alergies. Not everybody need 4 mg / day, for example i need 2 mg/day for my condition, so i take one pill every two days.
Quieres estar morena todo el año?

Pues sí, este suplemento hace que tengas un color en la piel como si hiciera poco que hubieras vuelto de vacaciones. Yo lo tomo con otros suplementos y no puedo deciros que he notado unos beneficios en particular pero el moreno sí!
To slow down the sunburn speed in NZ is vital

You have to build this up in your body before summer. I ensure my old boy (who has slight ginge colouring, which is extra sensitive to the sun) takes this, and since he has, his incidences of sunburn have been zero. He still takes general precautions, of wearing a hat that covers the back of his neck also, but rarely uses sunscreen, unless he's going out on a boat or swimming. Since the sun is brutal in this part of the world, these are impressive results. Astaxanthin is also useful for eye health, and to help muscle recovery. Affordable price too.
