"I have been using this product since Vitacost first offered it years ago. I love the Vitacost quality and price on all their products which is why I went with their brand. I started taking natural astaxanthin for its antioxidant action but had a pleasant unexpected result. Earlier on, my skin had developed brown spots and white chalky areas associated with my enjoyment of outdoor walks. This was particularly evident during the summer months. Once I began taking Vitacost's natural astaxanthin, the chalky spots completely disappeared, and continue to be gone. Because I see this result on the outside of my body, I can assume it's working on the inside as well."
"This is one of those supplements that you just go on faith that it is working. You don't see results from taking it as it is a powerful antioxidant, some say the most powerful, but it works entirely internally, so there would be no way to provide definitive results."
"Using for about six months and have replaced 3 supplements that I was taking - really like so far. Go to WebMD and check out what they say about it and compare to what you are now taking. You might be surprised."
"I know that most products contain about 4mg's of this product. I think that it order for this to work and for anyone to take notice, then we must use a higher dosage. So this one works great for me. I have noticed a difference in my energy levels and my skin has a nice glow and color. Looking forward to keeping using it longer and see more results. I hope that Vitacost will continue to have their great prices so I can afford this more often."
"Natural astaxanthin does a little of everything; a powerful antioxidant, immunity booster, and great for wrinkles, too! Give it some time, and you will see and feel the difference. All of the studies recommend 4mg a day, and this is a whopping 10 mg! Great price!"
"Being retired, I do lot's of shopping around. I haven't found a more potent Astaxanthin that is better than this one. I trust that company for the quality of their products. If anyone knows better, let me know because my health is what I value the most."
"Astaxanthin is something I now take daily for its various purported antioxidant uses. Vitacost's Astaxanthin is competitive with other brands and comes in a high enough dosage to be useful. The only drawback, which rates it 4 instead of 5 stars, is that the gelcaps contain animal products. Hopefully, vegetarian caps will be made available."
