Comment:
Have been using 12mg Astaxanthin per day every morning for about 3 months now. For the past 2 weeks, I have been experiencing all of a sudden Irregular Heartbeat in the afternoon. I have never had IHB before. Like they always say "take everything in moderation", so I will stop the 12mg for a week or so and see If the IHB is gone and then try 6mg or 4 mg and see what will happen then.

I experienced a side effect I have not found online. My knees felt fatigued after the slightest bit of excercise. Simply walking my ten year-old dog a couple of blocks had my knees feeling very strange. I ceased taking the supplement, and four days later, my knees are normal again! Very strange.
