  • 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sorry Notice that this has carageenan in it which is BAD news! February 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I still testing it for a month & will find if this works the way I've expected. August 13, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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. August 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best deal Astaxanthin has been repeatedly helpful for strengthening my eyes. July 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by GOOD PRODUCT I have been using this product for about 3 years and I believe it works for my overall health. March 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Astaxanthin Astaxanthin is very helpful for visual health. April 23, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Powerful Antioxidant These soft gels are small and easy to swallow with hardly any aftertaste. March 29, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is amazing stuff. I play Ice Hockey and on game days it really gives me a burst of energy. March 21, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
