Astaxanthin is a Dietary Supplement formed from algae extract and promoted as a potent antioxidant. It is often sold in 2 mg and 4 mg tablets or softgels. We don't see the need to take more than 2 mg a few times a week. It is a good idea to take a smaller amount of a variety of antioxidants rather than a high dosage of just one or two.
Astaxanthin is a naturally occurring carotenoid that is closely related to beta-carotene and lutein. It is made by plants and algae and found naturally in marine seafood such as salmon and krill oil. It is also available as a dietary supplement either by itself or combined with other carotenoids. We prefer taking low dosages of this carotenoid because there is a potential risk of imbalance in the body if too high dosages of a single carotenoid is taken compared to the many others that the body needs.
A common carotenoids is beta-carotene. In the eye, certain other carotenoids (lutein, astaxanthin, and zeaxanthin) apparently act directly to absorb damaging blue and near-ultraviolet light, in order to protect the macula of the retina, the part of the eye with the sharpest vision.

Long term use for years
Long term research with daily supplementation is currently not available. Therefore, those who claim that people should be supplementing with this product in high doses, such as more than 4 mg daily, for years or decades, are not basing their recommendation on solid science. The long term safety of daily use are currently not known and that is why we suggest using it a few times a week until more studies are published.
This astaxanthin supplement is a natural concentrate of marine algae Haematococcus pulvialis, which is cultivated in the warm waters of Hawaii.
Vision and eyesight
Q. I have come across websites that claim this carotenoid product improves visual acuity, is this true?
A. As of 2014 we have not seen human research that validates this claim, although it is a powerful antioxidant and many types of carotenoids are of benefit for the health of the retina and lens of the eye.
