LIFESTREAM ASTAZAN™ IS A UNIQUE EXTRACT WITH ASTAXANTHIN, A NATURAL SUBSTANCE THAT HAS VERY POWERFUL AND FAR-REACHING ANTIOXIDANT BENEFITS. STUDIES HAVE SHOWN IT TO BE CONSIDERABLY MORE EFFECTIVE AT FREE RADICAL SCAVENGING THAN BETA CAROTENE, GRAPE SEED, VITAMIN C & VITAMIN E.
Lifestream AstaZan™ is a new and very exciting supplement, a highly potent Antioxidant. It brings a new level of effectiveness and is unlike any other antioxidant as it also helps with sun protection+ and exercise recovery. Lifestream AstaZan™ is active throughout the entire body, the unique structure of the active component allows it to pass the "blood brain barrier"1, meaning it can deliver antioxidant benefits directly to the brain, eyes and nervous system as well as the rest of the body. Lifestream AstaZan™ also helps recycle other antioxidants like vitamin E, beta carotene, lycopene and glutathione – switching them back “on” and prolonging their functional life.

Lifestream AstaZan™ contains astaxanthin (pronounced as-ta-zan-thin), this natural high-performance carotenoid extract is carefully produced and grown in natural conditions under the Hawaiian sun. It is a natural and essential dietary component for fish like salmon, the rich astaxanthin content is responsible for the pink colour in their flesh. Until recently, eating large quantities of salmon* was the only way for humans to get their daily dose of astaxanthin.
Lifestream AstaZan™ has the remarkable ability to help limit sunburn and help feed and support the skin in its defences against external damage from ultraviolet radiation (UVR). It is a systemic sunscreen active throughout the body that strengthens the skins natural defence system during exposure to UVR.
Chronic sun damage and sunburn - especially in the first couple of decades of life - can result in prematurely dry, wrinkled skin and the possibility of skin disease in later life.
Sunburn can damage skin cells (proteins, lipids or even DNA), increasing our risk of visible skin damage and long term complications. In defence our body utilizes an array of antioxidants to disarm the free radicals. Unfortunately under the severe stress of UVR exposure these antioxidant resources can be rapidly depleted.
It is believed that Astaxanthin complements and participates in the body’s own antioxidant defence system and thereby helps to prevent skin damage. Scientists believe Lifestream AstaZan™ works by helping to preserve and enhance the protective effects of substances such as Vitamin E, Vitamin C, beta carotene, superoxide dismutase and catalase at the skins structure. These effects (in combination or separately) may reduce the acute inflammation reaction of the skin and tissue just below the skin that follows excessive exposure to UV radiation, which leads to sunburn and damage.
Warning: This product is not a sunscreen or sunburn protectant and does not have a sunburn factor. Do not use this product without adequate sun protection such as sunscreen, clothing protection etc.
Lifestream AstaZan™ has very powerful antioxidant benefits. The active extract in Lifestream AstaZan™ (astaxanthin), is a natural red component of a fresh-water plant like Spirulina, but offers much stronger antioxidant activity against free radicals, pollutants and damaging substances. Astaxanthin is similar to beta-carotene but a slight difference in structure results in a radical difference in biological activity. Lifestream AstaZan™ is stronger than natural antioxidants like beta-carotene and up to 100 times stronger than Vitamin E as an antioxidant.
