Astaxanthin: 9 Little-Known Health and Anti-Aging Benefits

Astaxanthin — pronounced “as-ta-ZAN-thin” — is a natural compound known as a “carotenoid” that is commonly derived from algae.

It is a uniquely potent antioxidant that provides powerful immune support and a wide range of anti-aging benefits.

Astaxanthin can be consumed orally and also “fed” to skin in topical forms.

Antioxidants, Free-Radicals, and Oxidative Stress

Before diving into astaxanthin and its powerful benefits, it’s important to understand the relationship between free radicals and antioxidants — and how carotenoids in particular can help your body stay healthy.

Free radicals are single-oxygen molecules with an uneven number of electrons.

Because of this, they can react with other molecules, damage them, and cause a chain reaction. This process is called “oxidation.”

Antioxidants prevent free-radicals from damaging other molecules by neutralizing the single-oxygen atoms before they can damage other molecules by giving them an extra electron. 

Both antioxidants and free radicals exist in the body, and oxidation is a natural process that’s supposed to happen… but in moderation.

However, when you have too many free radicals and not enough antioxidants, free radicals can start damaging fatty tissue, proteins, and DNA.

The oxidative stress caused by too many free radicals leads to a variety of health risks, including heart disease and cancer, as well as accelerating the aging process. 

This is where carotenoids come into play.

Carotenoids are plant-based chemicals that are activated by photosynthesis. In plants, they help convert light into energy and have powerful antioxidant properties that help fight free radicals. There are over 600 different types of carotenoids, including beta carotene, lycopene, and of course, astaxanthin. 

Carotenoids can’t be produced by the human body on its own, though.

To unlock the powerful antioxidant and immunity benefits of carotenoids — such as the powerful astaxanthin — you need to either consume them orally or “feed” them to your skin.

What is Astaxanthin?

red algae astaxanthin

Astaxanthin is a reddish pigment found in algae that many consider the “king of the carotenoids.”

Compared to other carotenoids, astaxanthin is 550 times more effective antioxidant than vitamin E and is nearly 6,000 times stronger than vitamin C when it comes to supporting the immune system. 

Studies show that when compared to other carotenoids like beta carotene, lycopene, and lutein, astaxanthin has higher antioxidant power and is one of the best sources for protecting your cells by reducing oxidative stress.

Where Does Astaxanthin Come From?

astaxanthin flamingos

Astaxanthin occurs naturally in the algae, haematococcus pluvialis. 

It is also present in some sea animals, such as salmon, trout, lobster, and shrimp. In fact, astaxanthis is what gives these creatures their pink or red coloring.

(Interestingly, a diet high in the algae containing astaxanthin is also what gives flamingos their color.)

Pluvialis algae have the highest amount of astaxanthin available. In fact, 3 percent of their total mass is purely astaxanthin. This is the only source that has been approved by the FDA as a safe source of dietary astaxanthin. 

A popular red yeast, known as phaffia rhodozyma, is also a viable source, but the astaxanthin content is much lower. 

Synthetic astaxanthin is also available but is primarily used to produce food coloring and for fish feed. NOTE that the synthetic version is also known to be 20 times less effective in eliminating free radicals.

How to Take Astaxanthin

If you’re looking to add the fantastic antioxidant benefits of this king of carotenoids, you have a few several options:

Hard to Get from Foods

astaxanthin salmon

If you’re looking to supplement your diet with foods rich in astaxanthin, you may be disappointed. 

Wild sockeye salmon has the most astaxanthin versus any other common food with approximately 26–38 mg/kg flesh. This is compared to farmed Atlantic salmon, which has almost 6–8 mg/kg flesh. 

However, you’d better love salmon. You’d need to eat 165 grams of salmon every day to get just 3.6mg of astaxanthin. 

Choose Organic in a Dietary Supplement

Because it’s challenging to get a sufficient amount of astaxanthin from foods to reap the benefits, many people take astaxanthin supplements.

Always be sure to choose a dietary supplement providing organic astaxanthin because of the potential toxin concerns with non-organic versions. In addition, synthetic astaxanthin provides significantly less benefits. In fact, synthetic astaxanthin is 20 times less potent than natural, organic astaxanthin, making it less effective in eliminating free radicals.

Exceptional for Topical Application to the Skin

anti-aging astaxanthin

Because of its powerful anti-aging capabilities, astaxanthin is an increasingly popular ingredient in finer skincare products.

Because your skin literally “eats” the astaxanthin (and other ingredients whose molecules are small enough to penetrate the skin), here, too, it is important to choose skincare products that are USDA Certified Organic. 

This means they won’t feed your skin any unhealthy chemicals, such as parabens or “fragrance” (which can contain any of 3000 different chemicals in the US).

In skincare products, look for organic astaxanthin extract that is sourced from red algae.

Top 9 Health Benefits of Astaxanthin

1. Fights Osteoarthritis

Our joints rely on the balance between building new cartilage cells when the current ones begin to deteriorate. As we age, this balance shifts to where we aren’t able to keep up with rebuilding new cells when the old ones die off.

Osteoarthritis occurs when there aren’t enough new cells to replace the ones that are being degraded, and so our joints become stiff, painful, and inflamed. 

Studies have shown that astaxanthin can not only help maintain the balance between new and deteriorating cartilage cells, but it may also reduce inflammation in joints plagued by arthritis and in some cases, stop cartilage cells from deteriorating at all. 

Astaxanthin may slow osteoarthritis progression and address symptoms, giving you a better quality of life as you age.

2. Combats UV-Induced Skin Aging

One of the main benefits that astaxanthin has is its ability to protect cells from sun radiation, UV-light, and oxidation. It’s the exact reason why algae produce astaxanthin. 

UV-rays cause skin deterioration and for accelerating the aging process. Consuming  astaxanthin — orally or via skin application — may stall the aging process and protect against UV-induced skin aging. 

A 2018 study looked at moisture retention after UV exposure in subjects who were given 4mgs of astaxanthin versus those who were given a placebo. Results indicated that there was a significant difference between the two groups and that those who took astaxanthin showed marked moisture retention and less damage to their skin after the equivalent of 1.5 hours in the sun. 

In short, astaxanthin is one of nature’s “superstars” for helping you look younger longer.

3. May Help Retain Cognitive Function in Early-Stage Dementia & Alzheimer’s 

Astaxanthin supplementation may help folks dealing with the mild cognitive impairments characteristic of early-stage dementia and Alsheimer’s. 

Research has shown that oxidative stress may play a part in the progression of cognitive impairments, and supplementing with antioxidants may help since our oxidative capacities change as we age. 

In a 2018 study, researchers performed a clinical trial looking at the effects of astaxanthin on subjects with mild-cognitive function early-stage dementia. Results concluded that there were significant improvements in cognitive functions related to the ability to understand and complete complex tasks quickly and accurately.

4. Combats Mental Fatigue

Brain exhaustion… feeling drained… having a foggy brain… 

Mental fatigue goes by many names, and it can put a serious damper on productivity, relationships, and overall quality of life.

A recent study showed that astaxanthin may help people recover more quickly from mental fatigue.

5. Reverses the Appearance of Wrinkles & Crow’s Feet

astaxanthin age spotsNot only can astaxanthin help you prevent damage from UV rays, it may also reverse signs of aging such as wrinkles, crow’s feet, and age spots.

Several studies showed that both oral consumption and topical application of astaxanthin resulted in significant improvements in the appearance of wrinkles and crow’s feet in men and women over 8 weeks.

Improvements in terms of reducing the appearance of age spots and helping the skin retain more moisture were also observed.

6. Helps Manage Diabetes

Astaxanthin may help people with type-2 diabetes lower blood pressure and improve the metabolism of sugar. In a 2018 study, researchers found that patients increased their HDL cholesterol (that’s the good one!), reduced blood pressure, and actually improved the metabolism of sugars. 

7. Combats Menopause Symptoms

Menopause comes with a range of symptoms that can include hot flashes, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, mood swings, incontinence, bloating, and joint pain.

A 2010 study took a group of menopausal women and treated them with a combination of vitamins and supplements that included astaxanthin. They found that the women reported a significant reduction in 34 menopausal symptoms, including hot flashes, mood swings, bladder problems, and joint pain.  

Many of these symptoms, such as hot flashes, are often associated with high levels of cortisol and oxidative stress. By adding the “king of carotenoids,” astaxanthin, to your supplemental routine, you can address the amount of oxidative stress that your body is dealing with, helping to mitigate the symptoms frequently connected with menopause.

8. May Reduce Risk of Heart Disease

hands heartHeart disease is the number one cause of death in the United States. Excessive LDL cholesterol, high blood pressure, and oxidative stress can all lead to a heart disease diagnosis.

Astaxanthin studies have shown that it may reduce levels of LDL cholesterol in overweight patients, as well as improve HDL levels after 12 weeks of supplementation. 

Another study also revealed that astaxanthin may improve the thickness and elasticity of the walls of the arteries. This can help regulate blood pressure and, by strengthening the arterial walls, prevent hypertension-induced heart failure.

In yet another study, researchers found that after two weeks of supplementing with astaxanthin, subjects showed reduced blood oxidation and improved clotting time

9. May Activate the Longevity Gene FOXO3

astaxanthin longevity geneFOXO3 is among the few genes associated with human longevity that have been consistently replicated.

In other words, when activated in the body, FOXO3 may help you live longer. By some estimates, though, only one in three humans actually have this gene activated in their bodies.

So, here is perhaps the most exciting news of all…

Astaxanthin has shown its ability to activate FOXO3 in mice, and while research for further confirmation in human clinical trials is still ongoing, the potential is very promising.

“All of us have the FOXO3 gene, which protects against aging in humans,” said Dr. Bradley Willcox, MD, Professor and Director of Research at the Department of Geriatric Medicine, JABSOM, and Principal Investigator of the National Institutes of Health-funded Kuakini Hawaii Lifespan and Healthspan Studies. “But about one in three persons carry a version of the FOXO3 gene that is associated with longevity. By activating the FOXO3 gene common in all humans, we can make it act like the “longevity” version. Through this research, we have shown that Astaxanthin “activates” the FOXO3 gene,” said Willcox.

“We found a nearly 90% increase in the activation of the FOXO3 “Longevity Gene” in the mice fed the higher dose of the Astaxanthin compound CDX-085,” added Dr. Richard Allsopp, PhD, Associate Professor, and researcher with the JABSOM Institute of Biogenesis Research.

Very promising indeed!

  1. Hi, very good information, it makes the decision of what healthy things are best for me and how to get them into the budget.

    • I agree! It’s such good info to find something with excellent results to take the place of and have multi uses. Keep it simple and affordable, not cheap❣️

    • I’ve been taking Astaxathin for several years. It’s improved my eyesight markedly. No more dark spots or floaters in my eyes. At night, when in my darkened bedroom, I can “see” my hand waving in front of me. It looks greyish green like the night vision goggles the military uses.

        • Dr. Rozakis of the NE Eye Clinic prescribed Astaxanthin for my dry Macular Degeneration. It, along with several other supplements seem to have kept my dry MG at bay for some 5 years now.

        • I’m 75 almost 76…….I don’t wear glasses have never had any eye surgery and can read easily small print and see distances. I can see easily at night as well. No cataracts, glaucoma etc. I have blue eyes that are more sensitive to light than brown eyes. I don’t wear sunglasses or sunscreen and have had no cancers of any kind. I have been taking astaxantin for tears with many other supplements. Been a vegetarian for 53 years. Hope gives you some encouragement.

          • Thank you so very much for your contribution. Sharing your information absolutely gives me encouragement. I have dry eyes and have had problems with my eyesight changing.

        • Two thumbs up, Teri! Love to hear testimonials – it helps tremendously to hear real life success stories.

  5. Thank you for this very interesting article.
    Thank you for sharing your knowledge for free.
    I started listening to the little known secrets summit and have since then changed so many simple habits which have improved my energy and health. I feel invigorated by learning so much regarding healthy longevity!
    Thank you!!
    I bought the audio interviews and transcripts and am thinking of starting a group in Estoril/Portugal to share this important info.

  6. I have both the purity Woods hyper lift serum and the age-defying dream cream. I really like them! Here’s my question: do I have any UV protection from the Astaxanthin In the dream cream?

  7. I’ve used astaxanthin daily for many years and have felt that it has been beneficial in a variety of ways. One experience, however, really made an obvious difference. From early childhood on, I had always been extremely allergic to poison ivy – it seemed as if just looking at it would result in a terrible, itching rash that would last for a long time on my hands, arms, and legs before running its course. Poison ivy ruined many outdoor experiences growing up and far into adulthood with very bad cases of long-term itching and, while trying to keep it from spreading, resulting in visits to the doctor for internal as well as external medicine. Although I’ve taken astaxanthin daily, now, for many years, I no longer remember why I started using it, but one proof of its helpfulness really stands out: One day I was weeding around our deck for several hours where there was poison ivy mixed in with lots of other weeds, and even though I was wearing long sleeves and work gloves, when I went back inside the house a few hours later, I could feel the itching on the inside of my wrists and, after removing the gloves, could see the tell-tale blisters of incipient poison ivy. I was shocked, however, that within just a few hours later, all signs of the blisters and the terrible itching disappeared. I have never had poison ivy since then (and I also take astaxanthin every day). Of course, I don’t deliberately go wallowing in poison ivy weeds, but I live in a heavily-wooded area in Tennessee where poison ivy abounds. I never go a day without astaxanthin, but not having to worry about poison ivy anymore is just one of its many benefits!!!

  8. I appreciate not having to sit through a one hour video to get two or three pieces of information. Reading your article answered all my questions. Thank you.

    • @Carla, I couldn’t agree more! I don’t watch videos!
      Thanks Brian. This is a fascinating article on the benefits of organic Astaxanthin
      I will definitely purchase your Purity Woods Astaxanthin serum.
      @Lee, I also take Purity Woods Triple Maple Leaf Serum and really feel it makes a difference to my skin. I must try the Dream Cream.
      @Chiqui Cabral da Camara, if I lived in Estoril/Portugal (what a fabulous Country!) I would have loved to join your group. I also bought the Audio Interviews etc. as didn’t have time or the inclination to listen each day to the videos but most important is the Book I read at leisure and do so of All the Little-Known Life-Changing health summit 22 Interviews. It is another Bible for me.
      Cheers, Paddy from Sydney/Australia

    • Absolutely spot on Carla. 2 or 3 bits of information ( and mostly nothing new, or ‘life-changing’/’powerful’ in an hour. Ridiculous, as if anyone has time for that.
      This is much better.

  9. Thank you for this very informative article. I understood that it may help to prevent/reduce cataracts as well.

  10. Thank you very much for this report. I eat all organic foods, I mainly eat a plant based diet. I do add Salmon about 1-2 times per week. I have supplements that I take everyday.
    This just confirms I am doing what is best for me.

    Thank you

  11. Thank you for this great article. I too appreciate that you don’t make us watch a lengthy video to get to the point. I also have heard that, in addition to lutein and Zeaxanthin, astaxanthin is useful for eye health. It has been shown to improve dry and tired eyes and is important for macula health, working much like Omega 3s.

  12. Very much appreciate the written format ,easy to access, to scan and to keep for reference.
    -I have stopped watching time consuming videos-10 percent information and 90 percent fluff)

  13. One has to be discerning and the process of learning which information to trust and which not can be disarming and arduous.
    I think I have landed, with this Summit (:
    Thank you and here’s to a long and healthy life to us all. May longevity secrets become the norm and not the exception…

  14. I am’a 69 year old anti-aging ‘phenom’ because of ASTAXANTHIN!!!!!!
    I do not LOOK, act, feel, perform or think like an ol lady’!!!
    I got introduced to astaxanthin about 10 years ago on Dr. Oz, an interview with Dr. Joe Mercola
    and have been taking 10mg 2Xdaily with meals with fat. It is FAT SOLUBLE, so fat is necessary for absorbtion. Most remarkable is my FACIAL SKIN – I do not have the wrinkles and saggy skin of women my age. When I tell folks I’m nearly 70 I have to follow up by giving them a peak at my driver’s license. I also have no aches or pains, brain fog and have tons of energy.
    Phenomenal Supplement!!!!!!

  15. I have been using astaxanthin for over 10 years now, internally – not topically. It is my go-to
    beauty secret! I will be 70 this year and do not have the wrinkles and saggy skin of the average
    woman my age – still turn heads! (ha!)

    This article did not mention that astaxanthin is FAT SOLUABLE, therefore must be taken with fat
    to be absorbed.

    • Do you have a picture lol. Im 69 and have had some health issues for a while. Ive aged alot since having health issues. I dont know if it could help me?

  16. thanks, I have been taking astaxanthin for 3 years now. It really works as I’m 57 and not much signs of wrinkles. I jog/run everyday with a better knee since taking it.

  17. Thank you for your time and the care you put into sharing this wonderful information . This is just one of the many important health benefits I have learned about and they have truly made a difference in my health and my life . Please don’t ever stop sharing !

  18. Thank you Brian I’m so blessed by all your info. thank you for your caring heart to help others live longer and better.

  19. I listened to your Live Younger and Longer Summit videos, loved it, all are practical helpful information we need for everyday living. Thank you very much! I like your voice too, they sound soothing and caring! Please run the Live Younger and Longer Summit again soon.

  20. I am 78 years old and have been taking astaxanthin for many years and do not look nor feel aged in any way. I thank you for the e-mail and info. and frankly I enjoyed the Seminar you recently provided. We need more information on supplementation and the ‘why’ because our doctors are unable to provide this information and our food sources are now compromised!

  21. Thanks Brian for sharing this valuable indormation with all of us. I am having great time listening and reading the Summit Younger and Longer conducted by your amazing charm and brilliant way of asking relevant questions. Just impressive!!
    I just joined the Living your best life Facebook group and I am so honored to be part of this group I hope I can learn and share my experiences related to health issues and licing younger longer. I feel that
    a new life is starting for me and I feel very much supported by you in the distance with this melange of wisdom and sense of humor. I am so greatful to you, (even though I still need a Casio dictionary to spell words in english and constantly look up new vocabulary.)
    Nancy Sorribes from Barcelona

  22. Thank you for sharing this powerful knowledge. It’s easy to read, understand, straight to the point no fluffiness. For me, It’s much better to read a short and sweet article thank to watch a video.

    Thank you again, will see where to find organic in the UK.

  23. Thank you Brian! Enjoyed learning more about astaxanthin. I would also love for you to recommend the supplement companies you use. Far too many out there with false ingredients or questionable ingredients, plus I ordered a CBD recently and the label listed man made and synthetic ingredients when it was advertised as organic and natural.
    I already use Purity Woods serum and dream cream and love them. I will be ordering again soon. A little goes a long way which makes the high cost seem not quite so bad. Tight budget this senior has.
    I too appreciate not having to listen to a very long drawn out video many advertising companies use. I just skip all those now as they only lead to extremely high priced products.
    Your summit was perfect and full of valuable information so thanks again for that.
    Also, simply can’t go without saying your Dad jokes are humorous. You are easy to listen to.

  24. I will pass this article about my astaxanthin on my naturopath in Barcelona. I am going try it myself. Thank you Brian.

  25. I enjoyed reading and learning more about astaxanthin. Does astaxanthin interfere with any prescription drugs (cholesterol lowering in particular)?

  26. Appreciate the direct info about this product. At age 82, looking much younger, am always looking for legitimate sources of life prolonging products and help for my skin. I will follow your source leads and give it a try. Looking forward to the upcoming summit.

  27. Good morning.I am new to this group and learned something new from your article today. I have used Astxanthin for over 3 years as a supplement and it is helpful with my joint pain.Never knew it was also a cosmetic but will give it a try.
    Thank you

  28. This is a very interesting meeting I have been using it for a year or so, I Find the Astaxanthin 4 mg. really works, and it is nice to see that I can say what I want without being threatened by the Medical society by speaking out about certain products . Thank You. Ted PS I will be 81 years old in2 months.

  29. I just began using Astaxanthin and enjoy the comments above. I take PureXanthin which has natural Astaxanthin (5%) 10mg and I feel great at 90 years old. I have been told I don’t look that old. I’m just waiting for the full benefits to take hold. Will let you know when I reach a 100. 8/8/2022 at 12:47pm

  30. I have been taking astaxanthin for many years and am so glad I have been! Excellent article. Was not aware of all the ways it has been benefitting me!

  31. I took astaxanthin (orally) for about 4 years. My doctor suggested it for fatigue. It had great overall benefits, but what amazed me most was the effect of it for my eyes. I was nearsighted for about 20 years and I began to notice that my prescription glasses were blurring my vision instead of clarifying. I have excellent vision now. no more driving glasses or just to see far away. I’m 58, so I do use reading glasses, but that prescription has stayed the same for several years. I used to get my astaxanthin at Costco, but they no longer sell it.

  32. Brilliant informative article thank you . I have been taking it for a few years now for my Macular degeneration and was unaware of all the other benefits. it has staved off any advancement of my dry macular and am so pleased with all the other benefits. I have always been a health fanatic , so am very pleased about these extras .I look nowhere near my age and am often complimented on how young I look for my age .

  33. Astaxathin is an amazing antioxidant!! I have been taking it with some other supplements and it has helped me with dry eyes, endurance during exercise, and saggy skin! A life changer for me in all areas. Especially dry eyes. There were days in the past where the light of day would hurt them, and my vision seems to be better. 59 years young and still don’t need reading glasses!!

    When you are looking for a supplement, make sure it is sourced correctly and you are getting the right amount of mg per serving (the amount that shows effective in the studies).

  34. I have a heard a little about Astaxanthin before ,saying it was good for the eyes. This article peaked my interest even more.Thank you!
    I am also glad that it was not a long drawn out video. I have seen too many and watched them so I could see what info or ingredients or product they are talking about.
    Now when I see it is a video that doesn’t allow the text , I just don’t have the patience to check it out .

  35. Wonderful article. Thank you, I received today. I have heard about it, but never knew how it was working. I had CFS and Fibromyalgia nearly 40 years ago, due to the virus CITOMEGALOVIRUS released in Canada in the 80’s in clusters. I was sick for 2 years until I found out what I had with an article of Dr Whitaker. So I went, and the doctor there after extensive tests, gave me 35 supplements to take every morning and less in the afternoon, one pill for every organ, for the rest of my life and a diet. This is what I am doing. It maintained me young, and at 84, I have no ailment whatsoever and look 70. I have wrinkles around my mouth due to extreme stress. That’s all. I walk everyday, and keep my mind busy and agile.

    I did not have the wuhan shot, but I had the spikes, so I had the flu. I cured myself, as I am allergic to all chemicals produced by men. I am my own doctor following all the webinars and reading a lot. I was poisoned the last 4 months, I could not understand what I had, finally I knew that it was the air, the food even if I eat what I find organic, and the spikes from the 36 venomous serpent from the jab. I detoxed and finally I was myself again. I was very tired so I took Ashwagandha for energy. And it worked, but I will switch to Astaxanthin next. It is much better for my body and for what I am looking for and give me everything.
    Thank you so much for such a clear article right to the end. All the others doctors that want to sell their products go in the trash.
    I love this last joke, made my day.
    Thank you

  36. Thank you so much for this article. And just like a lot of the other reviews said, its always great to just “read” something as apposed to watching a 30 min video and only find expensive products at the end of it. This was great, as it caught my attention immediately because I’ve been taking ASTAXANTHIN for about 7 years now. I am 63 and buy the Healthy Origins organic Astapure Astaxanthin, 12mg and take one/day. After reading more info about it, I may just increase to 2/day. But I can also say that sometimes when I put my prescription sunglasses on while driving, I too sometimes feel that its more blurry than not wearing them, so maybe it is helping me there! But I also believe I have more energy as well. I just purchased your ‘Live Long and Thrive’ summit, as I’m looking forward to reading them all. So thanks again and keep up the great work.

  37. I agree with all the comments above. I loathe the “articles” that make you sit and watch a boring video which usually has the same “story” behind it just to get to the bit at the end regarding the actual product. I love Brian’s articles and truly appreciate the hard work that goes into creating such an incredible amount of wonderful information. I have just started taking astaxanthin and I am looking forward to experiencing the many benefits that I am sure are coming my way. I am using Ax3 which is recommended by Dr Mark Hyman. Each capsule is 12 mg and I take it twice daily. The website states that you can safely take much more.
    Thank you and keep up the great work Brian.

  38. I have been taking astaxanthin since I learnt I had macular degeneration & cataracts. I have recently had both cataracts removed & two weeks after the first op had to see the optician, who was surprised at both my 20/20 vision plus a slight improvement in the macular, ( it was a hole in a cyst, but the optician said it is a pseudo hole now? ) so 🤞I may not need a further operation on that now! 👍
    So, maybe the astaxanthin helped. It isn’t listed as good for eyesight above. I must have read it somewhere to start taking it to help my eyesight
    Huge thanks for the list of all the other benefits, I had no idea I was purchasing such an all round product. Wow!

    • Excellent information. I had no idea that Astaxanthin had so many health benefits. I will definitely get an organic form.

  39. Hi.Thank you for this outrageous information.May God bless you and your family from here to eternity. If we can have more people like you , this world would be a better place to be. Once again thank you so much talk soon.

  40. I really appreciate all the info. re. Astaxanthin that I’ve only been taking for a relatively short time. I have slow developing cataracts and both my parents had macular degeneration so here’s hoping it may help my eyesight. I have already taken supplements containing Lutein for some time which are supposed to help. Thanks to everyone contributing.

  41. Very powerful, informative article. Astaxanthin covers a lot of health issue.How long this organic product is on the market?
    I think I need Astaxanthin.

  42. Hi Brian,

    I loved the article on astaxanthin!

    I am glad you also posted skin products that has astaxanthin but I would like to know where to get the best or most effective oral supplement and also who should avoid using this supplement based on medical conditions or prescription drugs being taken!

    Thanks again for the article for the hard work you and your team put in to produce the Live Long and Thrive Summit!


  43. Thanks for the information, i actually agree with what it said, because the copper Salmon suppose to be the riches in Astaxanthin, and i could see why the Algia has such power, all natural, hoping they don’t start trowing more chemicals on the oceans, than it has already. thanks again for the information. I went all natural since the Covid19 left me with an after effect. The medication that was given to me for the after effect, was even worse, no medication they prescribed for me helped, they all took me backword, only vitamins help me going foward. Juana Lino

  44. Great article! I’ve been taking it for several years and my eye sight is excellent. I didn’t know about the other benefits though. I’m thinking I would like to try it on my face and neck too.
