I confess I bought it mostly because i read that if you take one of these and go in the sun you dont burn or get much affected by the UVA and UVB rays...since I live in the tropics and have melasma, I need all the help I can get to avoid the melasma worsening. Too soon to tell about the sun protection claims, as melasma takes a long time to disappear. Will report again later. HOWEVER, what a great antioxidant too, and AMAZING for your eye sight! I think it is responsible for the whites of my eyes being super white! If that is not a sign of youth and health, and dont know what it is!

I like Astaxanthin and was using the NOW brand but am trying to get away from grains, and that brand has rice flour in it. So using this one now and it is just as good.

Not as fantastic as it claims to be a super-anti oxidant that can see result on the skin and improvement on eye-sight easily. I feel more immunity to common cold but branded pine bark extract work much better than this product

I'm taking this for brain health. It's also supposed to help keep skin looking younger. I like that it's a marine oil that doesn't smell, taste bad nor does it give me a migraine.

I have only been taking this one month but it seems that my vision is sharper than it was. I have a bit of night blindness and I believe that this product has improved it. I will be purchasing this again :)

Not all Astaxanthin products are equal. This is a good form of it in a good dose.

I am into antioxidants for many years now and I am also a smoker so I got aware of the feeling when the body gets over toxins by heavy smoking. Astaxanthin releaves fast resutls in getting rid of toxins and I feel much safer using it, and sure will order it again.

Does so many great things for your body but in my mind the most important one is that it can cross the blood brain barrier. This means it might keep the brain and eyes healthy.

Seems like a good formula and excellent current price at $9.9 for 60 caps and the larger size is even more reasonable. So many good things being said about astaxanthin these days. We take it regularly.
