Been using astareal and bioastin brand Astaxanthin long before the buzz hit the media a little while back. My main purpose in trying it was to assist my physical workouts and recovery from workouts. It worked a little bit on that front, but after a few months of using it, what I really noticed was an improvement in eye focus with less eye fatigue. My ocular functions were dramatically better at around an eight milligram per day intake.
My skin is quite fair and I burn quite easily and quickly, so I have never witnessed its touted benefits as an internal sunscreen, but I also wasn't taking a dosage that resembled anything in the twenty plus milligrams per day total. Beauty tip...... Split open a softgel and apply to skin. Seems to work on sun damaged areas, but be careful when handling this stuff...... Will stain anything and everything
Make sure to take with a meal containing adequate amounts of fat for proper assimilation
Pros:Good price and product
Research and clinical trials look promising
