For athletes who want to improve their performance

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How much astaxanthin should I take?

The recommended amount per day for an average person is 12 mg. Athletes should take more.

There have been a variety of research findings, so we at AstaReal recommend 12 mg per day because recent research projects conducted in collaboration with universities and medical institutions show that it is possible to attain and easily experience good results by taking 12 mg per day.

For athletes who experience higher levels of oxidative stress that are stronger than average due to the influences of hard training, UV exposure, or other factors, we recommend taking a higher dosage.

We recommend taking astaxanthin as a supplement because 12 mg is the equivalent of 12 red salmon filets, 4 bowls of salmon roe on rice, or 12 pouches of cod roe.

When is the proper time to take astaxanthin?

We recommend taking astaxanthin after eating.

Astaxanthin dissolves in oil, and it has been determined that taking it in combination with dietary oils makes it easier for your body to absorb.

It is preferable to take astaxanthin consistently every day, so we recommend deciding on a specific time that you personally would be unlikely to forget, such as just after breakfast or dinner.

Can it be taken along with other supplements?

As of yet, there have been no reports of incompatible supplements that must not be taken with astaxanthin.

If you are concerned, please consult a physician, pharmacist, apothecary, etc.
