I bought this for my 70 year old mother. She has a bit of occasional shoulder bursitis, some arthritis and wakes up every morning with stiff swollen hands. I got this particular product because of the dosage: 12mg vs 4mg and it's wheat, gluten, lactose free along with other positive factors, Non-GMO, etc. Upon asking her how she's doing with it after a few weeks, she was happy to share that she is no longer waking up with the stiff swollen hands and it also has helped with the inflammation on the shoulder. She was soooo pleased with the results. I must mention that she began taking one w/breakfast and two with dinner; she wanted to flood her system with Astaxanthin. She will soon go down to one in the AM and one after dinner. -- I highly recommend this product for anyone suffering from inflammation of the joints. Will definitely reorder. iHerb also has the BEST price on this product!

I got this for my Dad (age 83)to help preserve his memory and avoid dementia. He is doing well on his supplement combination, one of which is astaxanthin. He also takes apple cider vinegar, Vitamin D3, Cod liver oil, Lithium Oratate, probiotics.

I've been taking these for the past 2-3 weeks, and can't say I have noticed any of the effects other people have written about in their reviews. Also these make me burp, which is a sign of a product that is heavily processed, which is why I will not be buying it again.

Before purchasing this product, I consumed Astaxanthin (12mg) by California Gold Nutrition. The CGN product can be consumed either on empty stomach or with food, and it is also a cheaper product (when pricing is normalized). I was happy with the CGN product, though decided to try another brand. When I consumed this BioAstin on empty stomach (against the instructions on the label), it lead to a strong negative reaction. My stomach was upset for about 1-2 hours. However, when I consume it with food, everything is good. I did not notice any significant benefit from this (or the CGN) product, though I think it promotes overall good feeling. Various articles claim that Astaxanthin is the most potent antioxidant. It does not transform into pro-oxidant; and each antioxidant can bond with up to 17 free radicals and take them out of the body. Astaxanthin achieves any spot in the body, including the eyes and sinuses, and is considered as the best antioxidant out there. Therefore I consume Asataxanthin on regular basis. I assume that I will not buy more Asataxanthin from BioAstin though. It seems to be more expensive, less flexible as far as consumption on empty stomach, and I do not see any advantage of it over competing products.

Initially after taking it (almost 10 days) whole body ache. However after taking the whole bottle seems to improve skin condition.

Only bought because iherb had an awesome deal. Not noticeably affecting my health, just taking as an adjunct to my fish oil.

My Title is actually how I feel about this product. I do know that Nutrex is a reputable company based in Hawaii where it grows it's Spirulina, which was the first product I bought from them umpteen years ago. I guess time will tell as for the benefits. I'll update if/when I can truly "tell" or feel that it's working.
