There are many healthy components in vegetables. Astaxanthin is one of them.

 

Rather than dividing our veggies finely into their components and taking them in capsules, I would eat more raw veggies, perhaps in a blended drink, pulp and all.

 

If unable to get fresh veggies, I would take a mixed carotinoid supplement derived from food or algae. This should include a range of nutrients including astaxanthin.
