I've tried Mercola's astaxanthin, and liked it a lot. It's pricey but is a high quality product, and a good choice for those who are able to afford it. (For folks with more limited incomes, I'd recommend Swanson or NOW instead. But if you have the extra bucks, Mercola makes vey high quality supplements.)

One person mentioned in a posting here that astaxanthin can become rancid. This is true, but there is a way to prevent it. Although Mercola does not recommend refrigerating it, I would suggest doing so. The problem is that plastic bottles are ineffective at keeping the moisture out, during refrigeration.

My recommendation would be to remove the capsules from the plastic bottle they comes in (when it's time to start using them), and store them in a GLASS bottle in your refrigerator. The bottle you store it in should have these characteristics:

* It should be GLASS, not plastic (glass is far more airtight than plastic)
* It should be a DARK AMBER glass. This keeps the light out and helps stave off oxidation.
* Keep the lid TIGHTLY sealed to keep excess oxygen out.

If you take these precautions, your supplements should all stay fresh till they're used up.

I ordered this product for faster recovery of muscle aches after exercising. I didn't know if it worked, until I ran out of it and my muscles started aching. While using it I also noticed that a few brown spots on my face and body disappeared. People started complimenting me on my skin. Dr. Mercola encourages people to go into the sun without sun screen to get natural vitamin D. Having been told to stay out of the sun all my life, this was hard to do, but he said that the product protected the skin. He did NOT suggest to go out in the full, hot sun for hours at a time. I don't like to wear sun screen with makeup, so I tried it. I didn't burn and it seemed some fine lines were disappearing. I then heard Dr. Perricone, the famous dermatologist, talking on a radio show, saying he uses it, and while his fellow colleagues would probably kill him for saying it, he believed it protected the skin and encouraged people to go out into the sun. I am trying to cut down on all the vitamins I am taking, but I plan to continue this one.

I used this product for 2 months and my dark sunspots under my eyes have almost completely dissappeared. And that is fantastic! And this was in fact what I hoped for.
The con is that I have a hard time finding a way to store the product - it can become rancid.

I'm a Dr. Mercola fan, and trust the quality and integrity of his vitamins. This one adds the Omega-3 I need, and is easy to swallow. Omega 3 is an important addition to my daily diet, and I like having a change from my regular Omega-3. Checkout this and other great products at his website, then come back to Amazon for purchase - it's less expensive!

I have not been bothered with floaters shortly after using this product for about 2 weeks. I just use this with eye drops.

I have been taking this product daily for over 3 months -- I noticed after the first month that my hot flashes had decreased in frequency and intensity. After the first month I didn't re-order right away and noticed my hot flashes slowly increasing in frequency and to some extent, intensity. I immediately re-ordered and within a few days of taking Dr. Mercola's Astaxanthin they backed down again. Now, 3+ months in I ran out again and guess what? The hot flashes have begun to increase. I would like to purchase a less expensive brand BUT don't see any with the same ingredients as Mercola's product -- he adds "ALA" -- not sure if that is what is helping with the hot flashes and not wanting to spend time "testing" others I'm going to re-order Mercola's product only this time I'll order the 90 count bottle -- its a much better price per capsule then the 30...
