Lifestream AstaZan is a superior natural antioxidant containing an active component called astaxanthin (pronounced as-ta-zan-thin). AstaZan is a natural complex of carotenoids including astaxanthin, beta-carotene and lutein. In this form, combined with Vitamin E, is much more stable than the natural micro algae form and provides a more desirable group of carotenoids that any single dietary ingredient. AstaZan is the natural pigment that gives fish like salmon the pink colour in their flesh. Over 600 different carotenoids exist in nature. Animals and humans cannot make carotenoids and they must be obtained from food. Carotenoids are the natural pigments which give fruits, vegetables and flowers yellow to deep red colours. The carotenoids in plants 'quench' free radical molecules and prevent then from causing damage. Without these free radical quenchers or antioxidants, plants could not survive.
Where does AstaZan come from? This natural renewable high-performance carotenoid extract is carefully produced and grown in natural conditions on the Kona Coast under the Hawaiian sun.
Why is this product considered to be the "Ultimate" antioxidant? Simply put, AstaZan is a superior antioxidant with unique powerful qualities. Astaxanthin has 100-500 times the antioxidant capacity of Vitamin E and 10 times the antioxidant capacity of beta-carotene. Many laboratory studies also indicate Astaxanthin works better than lutein, lycopene and tocotrienols. AstaZan is natural part of the food chain which contains no organic solvents and is very carefully manufactured under ISO conditions
