Imagine if there was one natural pill to help you with that `hit by a truck' muscular fatigue that comes the day after exercise or physical activity? Well, now there is. It's called LifeStream AstaZan.
Whether you are a serious athlete or exercising for long term health/weight benefits, slow recovery time after exercise is always frustrating.

Lifestream AstaZan is a high potency natural antioxidant which has the remarkable ability to support fast and optimum muscle recovery after exercise and to help maintain muscular strength and endurance.
This is amazing news for sports enthusiasts and gym participants everywhere!
THE BENEFITS OF LIFESTREAM ASTAZAN:
• Supports fast muscle recovery after exercise or physical activity
• Helps maintain muscular strength and endurance
• Protects your body from oxidative stress
• Promotes efficient oxygen use by muscles
• Delivers antioxidant benefits & nutrition directly into the muscles
When I was first introduced to Astazan, I nearly did a backward somersault because it sounded like the answer to a lot of peoples problems.
My personal experience has been interesting. I am an active person, running/walking my puppy, cycling, weight training, and the odd day digging up my garden. So I was hoping for a miracle because I suffer from pretty much aching everything. I started on one a day, and after one month I thought I felt stronger internally but everything else still hurt so I talked to Jason from Lifestream.
He told me to knock knock hello on my noggin, because with the amount that I do I would need at least two a day. So I increased my dose and one month later thought about it again, this time I noticed a slight decrease in pain and a slight increase in stamina etc so continued for another month with the same feeling.
Then I ran out, and being a procrastinator I didn't get another one, within two weeks I noticed things getting sore and achy again. I started again, and I haven't stopped taking it since then. Some days I'll have three - like the day of the Tour de Manawatu cycle race, or the day I dug old tree roots out of my garden.
So now I take the dosage my body needs to help it through the tasks required, with excellent results.
It's great fun staying fit and healthy, it just takes a little effort and patience to get fantastic rewards. Look after yourselves and have fun.
For the last 4 years I have had a very painful arthritic right thumb joint, the one right at the base, so it's an important one for a swordsman like me. I also have a lower-back injury that gets rather inflamed and painful during extended practice sessions and strong exercise.
So, when the chance came up to give this Astazan a try, I thought it sounded too good to be true. After all, a natural inflammation-fighter that is related indirectly to spirulina (since they are both derived from algae)... that starts to show results in under a month... Nahh.... you're pulling my leg mate.
But, worth a crack, Nigel... Nigel? Anyways... 2 tablets a day with food (I chose to take one at breakfast, and the other at lunch) and wait for some signs of an effect.
Training as normal, back spasming as normal... 2 weeks of it. Then I notice that my back is getting less painful each training session. My thumb-joint is settling down, and the constant swelling is reducing rapidly! Shock horror, by Jove, I do believe it's working!
We are now 3 weeks down the track, my back causes less and less discomfort and sleepless nights, my thumb is almost totally pain-free and my sword technique is smoothing out nicely... painless practice! (Well, maybe not painless, but the pain is from not-quite-dodging a shot properly instead of a screaming spine, so that's progress.)
Very much anticipating further reductions in pain (my recent knee injury is still acting up, but it was quite a nasty injury, so time will tell on that one), and since I have been speaking to quite a few people who are currently taking Astazan, I am very much looking forward to the 'core-energy boost' they claim kicks in at about 5 weeks. I am already noticing that my morning 'fuzzie head' is shrinking in duration, leaving me alert and awake earlier each day.
Overall, VERY impressed. it's still a little pricey at about $2/day for the first fortnight, then drops to $1/day when you reduce your dosage to 1 tablet a day, but when you consider the pain relief is constant, not fluctuating like some other pain-meds, it's a small price to pay really. At 60 tablets per jar, I would suggest that if you are keen to give it a go, get 2 jars, that will give you 15 weeks worth. Be CERTAIN you take these with food first, then a strong-flavoured drink (I chose Lift+) because if you make the mistake of biting into a capsule, you'll probably gag. It's a very potent flavour for sure. But, looking at the big picture, this stuff is stunningly good.
