Will Astaxanthin Affect Other Supplements ?

Patient : Will supplementing with Astaxanthin have any affect on supplementation with other carotenoids, such as vitamin A from natural beta carotene, or lutein. I read some where that they will compete for absorbtion, is this true? If it is, how far apart should the supplements be taken in order to get the most benefit from each ?
