Better than the Healthy Origins 12mg but both gave me Panic attacks.

I had this 4mg astaxanthin before I tried the 12mg. With saw my skin clear up from blotches and my eyes were clearer. With the 12mg its more expensive and I dont see the same effect as the 4mg. With the 12mg my pigmentations turned pinkish and I dont see the scattered pigmentation on my skin disappear. With the Triple strength I had two episodes of Panic Attacks. Weak knees, numbness and tingling on my face, head, arms and legs. Heavy heart like I would faint. When I trace back it happened after at least 10-15 minutes after taking astaxanthin. Had I not have the second attack from the triple strength I could not link my first panic attack to astaxanthin 4mg about a year ago. this is an overhyped supplement by Dr. Oz and Dr. Mercola. the warning on the side effects were completely hidden unless you search online or experience it yourself. Check the blogs and forum at Dr Perricone about the side effects of asta. I am not making things up.
Inflammation is the cause of all diseases. With Curcumin it helps the body rid inflammation and heal. I also like the fact that it is made by Life Extension because I know it is science based and good quality ingredients.
Might elevate blood sugar, cholesterol and cause liver problems, sun skin damage.

I bought this for memory support and nothing else. Ive read good reviews on this site. upon further research. warnings about having elevaterd cholesterol, blood sugar and risk of liver disease seems to be a risky side effect. would not buy again. I would rather stick to Bacopa.
GOOD FOR Infection
I trust Life Extension. Helps ease UTI symptoms. Antibiotics were taken in conjunction with Cran-Max. So cant attribute healing to Cran-Max alone. But had I bought this earlier I would not take antibiotics
4x the power of Q10-GOOD FOR MIGRANE
Not only good for the heart and cholesterol. Take One to Two capsule once you feel you are getting a migrance then take another capsule in the middle of the day. It would prevent migrane or lessen the severity and duration.Healthy Origins offers a good price.
EXcellent Cell Support
Ubiquinol is good for cell regeneration and as I have read a very good antioxidant since it has an extra electron to fix that hay wire cell looking for a partner.

Inspite of the low dosage per capsule (400mg instead of 1000mg)this product has helped me, my sister and her dogs to boost have a healthier and stronger immune system.

I use this to help control my weight. somehow it helps. I do not use this continuously, i rest my body from it every now and then.
COMPLEMENTS OTHER SUPPLEMENTS
I am taking a lot of supplements but without minerals it would seem that the cells in the body are not completely supported. This particular brand is better as it is more concentrated than the other brand. It is pure.
Ive tested cordyceps protection to the lung during the fire at Palos Verdes Ca. last year. For 3 or more days the air was so toxic but our lungs survived. No colds nor cough developed.
