Just curious, I ordered some Krill Oil for the first time and didn't look for astaxhanthin, I was after the omega-3 as you well noticed. I've just re-checked and seen that it has 750 mcg of astaxhanthin, it's the Neptune Krill Oil from Now Foods. Any experience with it someone?
i've actually been taking astaxanthin since september now. i haven't noticed any benefits yet but i take 12 mg a day along with my fish oil. i used to take krill oil until i found fermented cod liver oil.
I have taken both astaxanthin and krill oil to get a combined dose of 10 mgs/day for about a year. I really haven't noticed a difference, though I believe it offers internal sun protection. I have recently decided to switch to fermented cod liver oil/butter oil for my teeth, but I may continue to take a little astaxanthin just because it is supposed to be such a great antioxident. It is pretty expensive though!
Do you think we'd get some if we ate the shells and tails of shrimp?
