I chose 'Jarrow Formulas Astaxanthin' because it does not contain any carrageenan, which is potential excitotoxin for the brain and may cause colonic ulcers. (Whilst small quantities of carrageenan may not be harmful, little is known about the long-term toxicity and safety of this ingredient when taken over the course of years.) Astaxanthin possesses numerous health properties, such anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory agent. It helps protect the skin from oxidative stress from UV-light exposure, protects the liver, the kidneys, the lungs, muscles from damange, helps improve mitochondrial function, assists in normalising lipid metabolism, helps reduce hypertension, and aids with gut function and the microbiome. During the Summer months I take this high-dose 12 mg Astaxanthin supplement once a day [and twice a day during with more sun exposure]. In the winter months, I switch to 'Jarrow Formulas' 4 mg staxanthin.
I am in the supplement industry. I've read books written by leading on experts on astaxanthin. The science behind it is extraordinary. It may be the strongest of all the carotenoid antioxidants [including lutein, lycopene and Beta-Carotene]. It provides great benefits for the brain, eyes, skin, cardiovascular system, joints, and MANY other body systems. the AstaPure-brand is one of the absolute best you can buy. And, the NAXA-verified logo [for Natural AstaXanthin Association] proves the ingredient was made using very strict quality control standards. Jarrow Formulas has an outstanding reputation for using high-quality ingredients. Along with EVNol SupraBio vitamin E [palm oil-derived tocotrienol vitamin E], found in Jarrow Formulas' "Toco-Sorb" and "Family-E" vitamin E formulas, this is a truly exceptional antioxidant & natural anti-inflammatory supplement. 12 mg dosage is the largest dosage available in a single capsule.
Helps me well with sight, when I have the patience to take it every morning, after 1-2 weeks I can read without glasses, lutein had no effect on me, at least nothing that obvious. The general daily energy seems better from astaxanthin than from Q10 also. The pill is small enough to not be annoying to swallow. Didn't notice any side effects and I took this for good periods for almost 8 years.
Astaxanthin is a supplement of natural origin, a fat-soluble antioxidant carotenoid (carotene) found in microalgae (algae) Hematococcus (ingredients). Astaxanthin contains an antioxidant that helps support brain, eye, skin, heart, and joint health. I take this supplement for a course twice a year, I feel great (improvement). I drink 12 mg (one capsule) per day in the morning along with Omega 3, since astaxanthin is fat-soluble. The quality is excellent.
What I really dig about this supplement is that it helps with joint pain and inflammation. My joints have been feeling way better since taking it, and I can move around easier. Plus, it's made with natural ingredients, so you know it's legit. It's also super easy to take, and there's no weird taste or anything. I've been taking it every day, and I've noticed a real difference in how I feel overall.
Jarrow Formulas Astaxanthin Softgels offer a potent dose of this antioxidant powerhouse. Each softgel contains 12 mg of astaxanthin, making it an effective choice for supporting joint, skin, and cardiovascular health. Made with high-quality ingredients, these easy-to-swallow softgels are a natural addition to your wellness routine. As a customer, I appreciate the benefits of this supplement in promoting overall health. Highly recommended for those seeking a reliable astaxanthin supplement for their health and wellness needs.
Jarrow Astaxanthin, 12 mg per softgel, conveniently requires only one a day. This is just one of the reasons I really like it, since it's non-GMO, soy-free, and its other ingredients are safflower oil, extra virgin olive oil, and rosemary extract. I must tell you, however, it is not vegan.
I am not new to Astaxanthin as it gives some beneficial health benefits including internal sunscreen for the skin and also good for the eyes (as it protects against blue light emitting from devices). It is a dark color capsule and it is 12mg. I just need to take 1 capsule a day. I usually take it with fat-containing meal or with my flaxseed oils as astaxanthin is fat-soluble. I am taking this together with my lutein for eye benefits as I have got tiring blurry eyes and floaters.
I added in 6mg of astaxanthin (different brand) about a year ago, I love what it has done for my skin! I just switched to Jarrow because I trust the brand; but also because I wanted to increase to 12mg, as I have a compromised immunity and also experience some significant inflammation. I am feeling increased energy levels and less overall pain, I think the 12mg is working nicely, in combo with other holistic treatments. Awesome!
On of the best antioxidants in field! I am using this every day and getting my ROS and RNS down. When reactive speacies are down youll have more energy. This is ingredient from red algae. You will benefit from small dosage also. Rarrow are highest quality product I can trust!
High dose of astaxanthin (12) from a well known brand without unnecessary or harmful fillers. Astaxanthin is one of the most potent antioxidants and we take it for the eyes (combined with Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Saffron) and the skin. And the benefits are noticeable. It is also good for the liver and as a general antioxidant. We do two one-months cycles a year using 12 mg a day and it works great for us.
