Astaxanthin is a carotenoid naturally found in algae and certain types of seafood. It is a powerful antioxidant which protects the entire body from damaging free radicals.

Until recently the most widely-available antioxidants included vitamin C, vitamin E and beta-carotene. Though Astaxanthin is considerably more potent than traditional antioxidants, the only way to get significant doses of it was to eat large quantities of salmon, shrimp, crab, lobster or algae---a diet not readily available or affordable to many people.

Fortunately it's now possible to buy Astaxanthin in therapeutic doses which can be taken once per day. The supplement provides a wide range of noticeable benefits:

  • Improves cardiovascular and immune system function;
  • Reduces symptoms of inflammatory and neurodegenerative diseases;
  • Helps maintain muscular strength and endurance;
  • Supports fast muscle recovery after physical activity;
  • Promotes eye, brain and other organ health;
  • Reduces skin damage from ultraviolet radiation.

As the supplement's popularity grows there has been increasing interest in using it in animals, whether to minimize the aging process in a beloved pet or to enhance performance in working or sporting animals. As with all medications or supplements, be sure to buy Astaxanthin in a formula designed for animals---versions intended for human consumption often contain inactive ingredients that may be harmful to other species.

Using Astaxanthin

The supplement may be taken once or twice per day. Doses range from 1 mg to 19 mg, with the average dose between 4 and 8 mg. Safety of doses over 19 mg has not been established.

For best effects Astaxanthin should be taken every day over the long-term. Some improvements might be noticed just days after starting, but results will become more dramatic the longer it is used.

As with most supplements, opinions vary when it comes to ideal use. Many people consider it best to take small daily doses if treating a long-term condition, such as to manage chronic inflammation or reduce ultraviolet sensitivity in fair skin. Those who engage in bursts of physical activity, such as running a marathon or climbing a mountain, often recommend significantly increasing dosage for several weeks before and after the event. A doctor or nutritionist may be able to help determine the ideal dosage for an individual.

Note that taking more than 19 mg per day, while unlikely to be immediately life-threatening, may ultimately cause more harm than good. Other antioxidants which have been used longer, and so are more thoroughly studied, show benefits only up to a certain point. At very high doses they can actually create more free radicals. The point at which Astaxanthin becomes harmful, or if it does this at all, is currently unknown.

Another interesting benefit of Astaxanthin is that it restores the antioxidant function of 'spent' vitamin C, vitamin E and beta-carotene molecules, providing even more protection. Be aware that some Astaxanthin formulas also contain additional vitamins and minerals, so other supplements may need to be cut back.

There are quite a few user anecdotes which suggest Astaxanthin may enhance the effectiveness of some medications, such as aspirin or celecoxib (Celebrex), though there is no formal research available on the subject.
