Rated 3 out of 5 by from Product, not so good The product Astaxanthin suppose to be very good for the eyes. And it may be, but it didn't do a thing for my eyes. As a matter of fact I think my eyes got worse. The product was delivered in a timely manner and the packaging that the product was in was good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
