I want to be the IRONMAN champion in my age group
An IRONMAN Triathlon is a rigorous competition. I started taking astaxanthin from 2105, when I turned 34, because I want to become the IRONMAN champion in my age group.
After I started taking it, I became able to completely recover overnight from fatigue due to high-intensity or long training sessions, so I’m able to begin my next training session fully refreshed. This gives me mental confidence, and lets me work optimistically toward achieving my goals.
It also comes in very handy for recovering after competitions. For me, astaxanthin is a must-have.*Personal comment
