It gave me mental and physical leeway
I started taking astaxanthin from my junior year in university. Maintaining persistence and volume in training are important for mid and long-distance events due to their nature, but since I only practiced once a day in high school (no morning practice), I had a hard time increasing my training volume when I entered university. Up to my sophomore year, I had a lot of problems relating to conditioning. My physical condition would break down before important competitions even though I had been training enough and I would get depressed when fatigue would build up.
However, after I started taking astaxanthin in my junior year, I was never in poor condition no matter how much I trained, and I was able to stay optimistic about training all the way through the long summer training camp in my senior year, which was the most running I did in any three-week period all year. I even had the leeway to give encouragement to the exhausted team. And it wasn’t just in training. After I acquired some mental and physical leeway, I became able to match pace with important competitions and I never missed an event.
Some examples of things I felt after starting astaxanthin are as follows:
・I felt refreshed when waking up in the morning.
・I was better to concentrate on training.
・My bowel movements improved.
In particular, I experienced a lot of changes relating to fatigue, and it was a huge help in allowing me to handle not only training but also my studies and research for my main job as a student. I strongly recommend astaxanthin to those who are unable to keep up with training due to residual fatigue. *Personal comment
