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 support a healthy inflammatory and immune system response. Recent research indicates that Astaxanthin may even help to support the skin's structure during exposure to sunlight.*

Comments about NOW Foods Astaxanthin Cellular Protection 4 mg, Softgels, 90 ea:
I take Astaxanthin daily, with my fish oil. It's best taken with a fatty meal, so I take it with my Omega 3 fats. I would like a higher dose available, like a 6 mg or 8 mg dose. Sometimes I take two softgels to get the dose I want, but then I run out too fast. The capsules are small and easy to swallow, and when I take it regularly I see a difference in the fine lines around my eyes. I know this is a powerful antioxidant that penetrates the blood-brain barrier, so it's good for your eyes too. Also, I noticed I hardly ever get sunburns now even though I don't use sunscreen and I'm outside all summer long. I know Astaxanthin can act as an internal sunscreen and I've really seen the effects of this.
Now Foods is a brand that consistently has high quality. I buy many of their products.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
