For anyone over 45, this is a must-have. The dosage of lutein (10mg) and zeaxanthin (2mg) are perfectly in sync with the American Optometric Association's 2011 recommendations. The Alpha-Carotene content is in response to recent clinical discoveries (research it on Google). It's terrific that Jarrow dosed the overall Vit A at 52% Daily Value, since we're getting the other 48% (and then some) in our regular diet (fresh spinach, carrots, pumpkin, mangoes, etc.) However, I'm disappointed that Jarrow provides us a meager half milligram of astaxanthin whereas other specialists go with 8mg a day.

I have found that one a day is more than adequate. Also, if I take more than this there is a chance of the skin turning a bit orange from the carrot influence. That being said, however, this is a wonderful formula that I would'nt go without, and when taking one a day the price is a great value.

It helps me see colors more distinctly. It clears a dry scaling eye problem for my mother. This was an unexpected benefit!

I was able to feel (and see!) the difference after taking 3 softgels daily for a week or so. If you prefer to chew the softgels, absorb their content and discard them afterwards, be ready to have your mouth quite orange for a few minutes!!!

I read about mixed carotenoids in one of Dr. Weil's books and while you can order vitamins through his website, I really love iHerb value. This is a great product from a brand I trust and it hasn't let me down. I highly recommend this and any other Jarrow Formulas product.

I have been taking CarotenAll for several years, and have not experienced any "dry eye" since I began taking it. My only complaint is the new shape of the softgel. It is bigger and rounder than it was previously and sometimes uncomfortable for me to swallow. I can understand if it has to be larger--but if it must be larger, please consider making it longer and narrower.

This has a balanced ratio of natural carotenoids. And the capsule is very tiny and safe to consume. But the capsules have been attached with each other and to the bottom of the bottle. Other than that, It's safe to consume.
