I bought this as an all-purpose antioxidant. I've used it at lower doses (4 mg) in the past, and believe that its usefullness as an antioxidant is probably understated. It supposedly protects against wrinkles, and I know from experience that it increases the amount of time neccessary for a sunburn. I decided to up the ante, so to speak, and try 12 mg about a year ago. I take two each day with my largest meal. I noted with some surprise, after about three weeks, that the lower back pain which had plagued me for 10 years had disappeared! I have a physically demanding job as a pet store manager which requires me to be on my feet all day, often lifting very heavy weights, so the constant pain and soreness was really hindering me. After two bottles had been exhausted I accidentally ran out. The back pain mysteriously returned after a few days. I then determined that I would never run out again! Several days after receiving my new bottle, my back was as good as new! I don't know for a fact that the BioAstin astaxanthin was the culprit, and I don't know that it would do the same for anyone else, but I know this: I don't intend to ever be out of this! Please keep stocking this product! I believe that nutritional supplements saved my life. I've tried a lot of products, and I know what works and what doesn't. My reviews are honest, straighforward, and based on my experience. Read my other reviews to quickly learn from my three decades of research and experimentation.

This stuff is great for tendinitis. It works just as well as the prescription medicine diclofenac, but without any of the side effects.
It Really Works!!!!

I can't say enough about this product, IT WORKS!!! My wifes back issues gone, my daughters hip disorder which was causing major pain and discomfort is nearly all gone, and the pain I had in the elbow is no longer there. Astaxanthin has been a blessing for my family.
The best source for astaxanthin

I only have good things to say about this brand. It's more potent then any other supplements I have tried. All the best to MD Formulas and BioAstin :)

I am fair and I have been taking this for 2 months now. It is surprising how tan I am. I can now go out in the sun for 2-3 hours in Denver without burning at all. Recommend this highly.
