    Astaxanthin is just awesome. I don't like using sun screen and this supplements works to help keep me from sunburning. Good for eyes, sore muscles etc.etc. etc. Can't say enough good things about it.

    I have taken 4mg daily for 5 weeks. I work outside and even with sunscreen get tan. However While my skin definitely did not pick up any pigment (may have gotten lighter) I had some worrisome side effects. I started feeling faint every time I stood up and finally started having trouble taking a full breath. I was at the Doctor and while my blood pressure is always on the low/normal side (10 ...

    I began taking this supplement 60 days prior to a trip to Central America, to prevent radiation damage from body scanners. I was at the beach for hours with NO sunscreen, and didn't even tan, much less burn. Really amazed at the effect. Will repeat for trip to the Caribbean next month.
