@KillerTofu808 In VERY high doses it will give you a light pink coloration that nearly everyone perceives as healthy. You will not turn pink like a flamingo

Started taking astaxanthin and my vision stabilized within a few days, and my energy levels are up. I was convinced I needed glasses before but now I don’t. THANK YOU DR. MERCOLA!

Thank you so much Dr. Mercola for your great and informative videos. I’ve read quite a bit about the benefits of Astaxanthin. I am starting to take it now and see what it will do to improve my skin tone. Keep up the great work! I am your biggest fan and watch your videos and learn as much as I can about good health.

Dr Mercola helped get me out of the Allopathic Matrix đŸ™‚
I have added Astaxanthin to my supplements some weeks ago.

Hey Dr M…I found a study from Univ of Minnesota, Sch of Medicine, published in Nutr Cancer 2000 ;36 (1):59-65 10798217…”results indicate that dietary astaxanthin suppressed Meth-A tumor cell growth and stimulated immunity against Meth-A tumor antigen.” At this site: lib.bioinfo.pl Congratulations…Astaxanthin looks promising!
