Reviews of Using Astaxanthin as a Supplement

I've been advised to start using the supplement astaxanthin for a variety of medical conditions. Has anyone else used it with success? How long have you been using it? How long did it take to show results? My nurse practitioner suggested it.

I have never heard of this supplement. I looked at this webpage for info:
Best to you.

From what I've read it is one of the best antioxidents there is. Be sure it's naturally produced and be sure to let your nurse practioner know what other vitamin and mineral supplements, including dosage, that you take. You'll want to ask her if there are any supplement adjustments you should make and also what dosage of the astaxanthin you should take and how often. As with any supplement, medication, exercise or diet change it could take a month or two to see/feel the benefits.

You need to research any supplement before you start taking it. There will always be a 'flavor of the month', or everyone's current favorite new thing to recommend, just like with prescription medications.


Also make sure that your NP does not have a stake in this, such as selling the item from the office. It is not unusual, as I have seen recent ads for offices, promoting a supplement or range of products that their office is selling. Best of luck to you.

I did read on Wikipedia that 'While it does function as a carotenoid antioxidant, research has shown that lycopenes are more efficient antioxidants than carotenoids.' And they list the reference for that comment.
