  • Potent carotenoid antioxidant

Astaxanthin is a naturally occurring carotenoid that because of its unique structure, provides a wide range of antioxidant benefits. Astaxanthin can help to protect cell membranes against free radical attack and potentiates the action of other antioxidants like Vitamins E and C. Scientific studies have demonstrated that Astaxanthin can help to enhance immune function and provide neurological support.

Astaxanthin 4.9 5 27 37
Ultra Antioxidant!! This supplement has greatly improved the elasticity and quality of the skin around my eyes as well as the rest of my face and body. Definitely a keeper! December 24, 2013
A great antioxidant... I read that astaxanthin is a very powerful antioxidant and that you can also get this from krill but not in the amount that you get from taking it by itself. I feel good on this supplement and I believe that it aids in maintaining my good health. Add this to your daily regimen, It is worth it. October 27, 2013
Astaxanthin Articles that I have read indicate that Astaxanthin is a potent anti-oxident. At my age, I need all of the help I can get. October 19, 2013
Astaxanthin Great Skin! I have noticed an improvement in my skin tone since taking this! I really love Now Foods products. September 24, 2013
good product This has helped my vision a great deal September 22, 2013
Best Buy I like this product because of quality, price and availability. Also like the dosage so I can take the recommended 8 mg/daily (per Dr.Mercola's website). An essential anti-oxidant for older people. August 11, 2013
Great choice for Astaxanthin I've been taking Astaxanthin shortly after learning of its benefits years ago. I have taken the Swanson brand but and tried a Bio Astin 's Hawaiian brand, although they latter two brands are good, I have returned to reorder the Now Foods brand again. I like the fact that they use a olive oil, a veggie softgel and that it's gluten free. August 6, 2013
customer I had heard a lot of good things about astaxanthin. I found it on swansons and ordered it. I have been using it for almost a year and I have seen good results. June 9, 2013
The source for Astaxanthin We have bought Astaxanthin from other sources and have paid as much a 3 times what Swanson charges and could not be happier we found this product here. Thank you. June 6, 2013
Excellent Value To keep your immune system strong, I highly recomend this product! May 30, 2013

somewhat fishy (after)taste Except for the fishy (after) taste, it is effective April 30, 2013
GOOD PRODUCT I have been using this product for about 3 years and I believe it works for my overall health. March 12, 2013
Amazing Stuff I heard about this product about 2 years ago and decided to try it. I noticed visible results within a week. I researched its properties, then tried it. This particular brand leaves no after taste. March 4, 2013
Excellent Product This product has done amasing things for me, taking it every day is very rewarding health benifit. I'll continue to take this one. Can't beat the price. March 2, 2013
THIS ASTAXANTHIN WAS AVAILABLE I had been reading so much about the tremendous benefits of Astaxanthin that I decided to order some. I notced that Swanson's website showed that their product was unavailable from the manufacturer. So I called Swanson to see if their product would be available shortly. One of the very congenial and helpful Swanson operators stated that she didn't think so; then she recommended this one from NOW Foods. She mentioned that it was only $2 more. This is the preferred 4 mg. dosage that I had been reading about, so I ordered a bottle. I have since reordered, because it is giving me exactly what I wanted: a powerful carotenoid free-radical-fighter antioxidant that is also very good for my eyes. Vision is so valuable that I do everything I can for my eyes. I feel that Astaxanthin is keeping me --- and my eyes --- young. Personally, I take 1 or 2 of these very nice, very small soft-gel capsules every morning. I definitely plan to keep Astaxanthin as a permanent part of my nutritional supplement program. I gladly recommend it. June 14, 2012
Best Astaxanthin Astaxanthin is very helpful for visual health. April 23, 2012
Powerful Antioxidant These soft gels are small and easy to swallow with hardly any aftertaste. March 29, 2012
This is amazing stuff. I play Ice Hockey and on game days it really gives me a burst of energy. March 21, 2012
Everything I look for in a supplement I want a supplement that is effective , I don't have to take multiple pills of the same kind and that are easy to take. This one covers it all. March 19, 2012
the one supplement I have always liked NOW products. Astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant. Taking this supplement with krill oil will be beneficial for your general well-being; and good for your eyes. March 14, 2012
Love this product! The entire family takes astaxanthin now and we all have noticed a difference in our stamina while exercising and working out. We love it and won't stop taking it! March 11, 2012
Powerful and Effective This product worked better than expected. I noticed an improvement in my skin within 3-4 days. This suggests to me that other health benefits are occurring internally when I can see an externally noticeable difference. I think it has helped with my immune system as well. I take it with a krill oil supplement and try to take it after eating food with healthy fats and oils to improve the solubility and availability. Great product! February 18, 2012
Working well in my daily regimen I have been taking this brand for two months, and am noticing some improvement in my eyesight. I will continue to take it as it seems to be beneficial. December 28, 2011
Great product at any price I am thoroughly delighted with these gel caps. I bought Astaxanthin because I had read up on it being the "master antioxidant" but I did not expect it to make my sight better and it is. I also believe it has made some difference with my skin but can't say for sure. However the vision improvement rates way up there. I watch other people my age losing theirs and mine is getting better all the time. December 27, 2011
