The astaxanthin most likely being referred to above as "not intended for long term use" is derived from Pfaffia rhodozyma extract, not Haematococcus pluvialis (algae) which is the source of AstaREAL astaxanthin.
Here's the reply received from Source Naturals:
This warning was issued after the FDA evaluated information regarding Pfaffia rhodozyma as a new source of astaxanthin in May 2000. It is standard for the FDA to issue this type of warning after they review a new dietary ingredient. Essentially, there are no long term studies currently available for this product and we would recommend consulting a qualified health professional for help determining an appropriate dosage strategy for this supplement.
