Chronic administration of astaxanthin reduced the oxidative stress on the kidneys and prevented renal cell damage. - Biofactors, 2004.

The price per capsule is acceptable, but the quality and effect are low

You should avoid choosing cheap products. You are looking to choose a product that uses branded ingredients, even if the price will be slightly higher. AstaPure® is made from algae grown in a closed system. Closed systems are prone to contamination due to the penetration of unwanted microorganisms and their uncontrolled reproduction due to cleaning difficulties. Therefore, AstaPure® is poorer (but cheaper) than astaxanthin from Nutrex Hawaii. At Cyanotech (the parent company for Nutrex Hawaii), production is located in an ecological place in Hawaii. The extraction is carried out with the help of carbon dioxide. I do not know why no one mentioned how terrible the smell of fish in this astaxanthin product is, although the manufacturer guarantees that the product does not contain fish. I notice that soft capsules are made with gelatin coating (gelatin is obtained chemically from pork skin, so they are not indicated for vegetarians). However, the capsules are small and easy to swallow. I also found that this product also contains soy! In the future I'll look for another brand that does not contain soy. In the future, I hope Healthy Origins will exclude soy from this product. Few know, but astaxanthin inhibits nitric oxide (nitric oxide is necessary in the body, but can be harmful if it is produced in excess). In conclusion, the price per capsule is acceptable, but quality and efficiency are low. Most people will need to take 2-3 capsules (8-12 mg daily) for maximum benefit.

Good product, but not good delivery

I got products in good conditions, but the way DHL delivered not good as it should be. They just left the box in front of my house without ringing the bell, or knocking the door. My neighbor s helped me to keep it. That's why there are much complaints about lost cargo.

Thanks for your feedback!

Not a trick for p

Posted by iHerb Customer on Aug 28, 2012 | Verified Purchase

I buyed these to test if it helped me with my psoriasis. Well the answer is that it did not help at all. I did not use any sun lotion at the summer and my skin did not burn so in that point of view it worked.

Thanks for your feedback!

Originally bought this product to assist bilberry tablets in slowing my deteriorating eyesight. It may have had some positive synergistic effects, but am unsure. Eyes are not as tired or "gritty" feeling as they once were, but this may be due to the bilberry alone.

Thanks for your feedback!
