Excellent!Nice quality product. Ingredient is axtaxanthing, which seems to benefit the eyes and skin. It is also an antioxidant so it has overall improvement for you. The capsule size is easy to swallow and tastes neutral. Recommended product and i like it. Gives me energy 2 mg a day. Contains carotene also.
Good quality astaxanthin. 2 mg is the lowest dosage I could find, since I don't want too much of it. only fish need so much, since it tends to accumulate in the skin. It is an important antioxidant ingredient with many benefits, it helps negate the effects of a bad diet.. it has improvement for energy production, the skin and eyes. doesn't taste like anthing. size of capsule is average.
I was pleased that it arrived very quickly. Pills are a bit larger than I anticipated given the dosage, but no issues in swallowing. I like that it's made with extra virgin olive oil and not other types of oils that can be inflammatory. I've had uncomfortable reactions to other astaxanthin products at a higher dosage and so far this one seems to be well tolerated. Some minor GI adjustment in the first few days, but not a big deal. I find this helps my eye sight and is great overall antioxidant. Looking forward to the benefits and will likely purchase again.
Astaxanthin is fed to farmed salmon which are bred in 'swimming pools' without any access to natural algae, crayfish & so on. The 'swimming pool farmers' noticed that salmons without astaxanthin became lethargic. The theory is that if a human is similar to a salmon... then this works. That theory is a bit wild as there's around 600 million years divergence since the common ancestor of a fish and a human.. I would like to view a MICROSCOPE analysis of 2mg astaxanthin per day fed to X HUMAN tissue for 1 or 2 years compared to the same tissue without astaxanthin, like " this lung tissue is much stronger, healther... and looks different in the microscope " Etc. Etc. (something like that) which is only theory. Personally, I broke these astaxanthin capsules in a bathroom sink to investigate, and well... it's like an extremely potent red dye, if you get it on your hand no amount of soap will remove it, and your hand will be a pinkish color for several days. One thing you can do is apply astaxanthin to i.e. the left side of your face, skipping the right side, to check if it affects your skin. Hmm.. well it's an interesting algae, anyway. Personally I prefer the 'look' of zeaxanthin, so now I'm trying zeaxanthin instead. The molecule of zeaxanthin is like a very long & straight 'skyscraper', so based on how the molecule ** L00KS ** then zeaxanthin seems like something which may fit in human body tissues. 4 stars based on that I don't know if this did anything or not.
