Anyone out there have any experience with Astaxanthin?
We have been using it for over 3 yrs. I gave a 60 day supply to my Dad over 2 yrs ago after he had experienced a painful flare up of his RA. After 30 days he asked for a six month supply, and has been taking it ever since. (4mg) He still has RA but for him he he feels that it helped his condition.
I bought it because of my fair skin and propensity to get sun burned. Not sure if it has helped as much as DW reminding me to put sun screen on.
There is some research on it, I first read about the benefits of it on the CYANOTECH website doing research on the stock before I bought it. We don't take any other antioxidants. You can buy it online for about 10 bucks for a 2 month supply.
