Nothing better. One of the best antioxidants in the world for your body. I take 6 per day, minimum, because I'm fighting cancer. If you do your research you'll see what a remarkable supplement this is. Couple of immediate results...you do NOT need sunscreen with this. It protects you naturally. My 1st day out this spring I laid out for 5 hours and did not burn. I have no sun/age spots anymore. The dark shading on my face in years past from the sun anre not there now. I have lots of energy. Visit naturalnews.com and register to that site. Read what he says about astaxanthin. Mike Adams is the chief herbalist and the things I've learned from him is saving my life from cancer without drugs or chemicals. P.S. You do NOT want to use sunscreen lotions ever again! The chemicals in it cause cancer and they also block the ultra necessary Vitamin D that you NEED to live and fight cancer. Its a double whammy! Besides the WellBetX and the Astaxanthin, I take green tea extract, I drink green tea, I take 6000 mg. per day of Vitamin C, 1000 mg. of calcium, 1000 iu's of Vitamin D, and I never, never use artificial sweetners. Aspartame/nutri-sweet/Equal turns ro formaldihyde in your body!! Order and use Stevia! Its amazing, natural, sweet and comes in flavors.

Every time I have taken Astaxanthin, I have had an extreme reaction with my immune system. My glands and lymph nodes in my neck have swollen up dramatically and painfully. I have had body aches, runny nose, complete feeling of exhaustion. I have tried it on 3 separate occasions and each time I had the same reaction. I did take it along with Krill oil. I am a sensitive person and have to start out slowly with some supplements. I think the amount of the Astaxanthin was just too much for me and it put my immune system into overdrive. It was very alarming and made me very sick and I was not able to function for a WEEK. It concerns me that if I were to continue taking it, I could end up with a self induced form of autoimmune disease. Normally I am an advocate of supplements, having improved my health with their use, and after reading all of the positive reviews and information on this product, I was looking forward to experiencing some of those positive benefits of Astaxanthin for myself. So I am very disappointed to say that I won't be taking this again. That would be a dangerous mistake in my situation. Sensitive individuals that are considering this supplement should proceed with caution. And if you notice a heightened increase in your immune response, you might want to reconsider. I've even began to wonder if the amount of Astaxanthin in the krill oil is too much for me. I think I will be taking it only every other day just to be on the safe side.

I can't say I noticed any real difference during the 2 months I took this. It's been a couple weeks since I stopped taking it, and have not noticed any effect from stopping. They didn't cause any problems, though.
