Astaxanthin Dosage - How much should I take?

How much Astaxanthin should I take?

The amount of Astaxanthin you should be taking will vary depending on your current health and what results you are looking to get out of it.

Most Astaxanthin supplements come in softgel capsules that contain between 4-12mg of astaxanthin each.

Take at least 6mg a day for general health and an antioxidant boost and look to increase your dosage to at least 12mg each day to help treat ailments.

Some people take up to 24mg of Astaxanthin each day that are looking for fast relief.

Make sure you take your Astaxanthin with food, ideally alongside some healthy fats to assist with absorption.

Remember there is no one size fits all dose, experiment to find out what works best for you.
