Health Benefits at a Glance:
Inflammation, the immune response to tissue injury or infection, plays a central role in the metabolism in a variety of organisms. While meant to resolve spontaneously, inflammation can become chronic and contribute to the deterioration associated with aging. Maintaining optimal health, therefore, involves inhibiting inflammatory factors. Natural compounds such as boswellia, curcumin, and omega-3 and -6 can support the body’s inflammatory response in unique ways. The Anti-Inflammation Kit offers a unique mix of active anti-inflammatory ingredients that can both help inhibit inflammation, and contribute to better overall health and well-being. The combination of products in this kit are meant for 30 days to use.
Why it Works:
As people age, bodily changes can occur that encourages inflammation. However, nature offers a variety of natural ingredients that contain potent anti-inflammatory compounds that can help prevent inflammations from taking hold and developing in the body. The Anti-Inflammation Kit contains extracts from turmeric, boswellia, and omega-3s derived from fish oil.
When combined, the anti-inflammatory agents found in these natural ingredients offer a great three-way strategy towards preventing and inhibiting inflammation. The ingredients in the Anti-Inflammation kit helps modulate the body’s inflammatory response, prevent inflammations from occurring, and help inhibit any inflammation present in the body.
Together, the active ingredients in the three products in the Anti-Inflammation Kit offer a great natural and pre-packaged inflammation strategy.
Turmeric, where curcumin comes from, is no less than a true superfood. Curcumin extracts can inhibit inflammatory factors in the body, support your digestive function, and encourage healthy cell division. It can also contribute to maintaining normal, healthy brain, platelet and pancreatic function. And while doing all of this, it also helps to fight free radicals. Our ultra-potent curcumin formula BCM-95® Bio-Curcumin® brings out the maximum health benefits of curcumin. It is up to 7 times more absorbable than conventional curcumin supplements and stays twice as long in the bloodstream.
5-lipoxygenase ( 5-LOX ) is a member of the lipoxygenase family of enzymes. It transforms fatty acids into pro-inflammatory leukotrienes and, as we age, its levels increase. Excess levels of the enzyme 5-LOX sets in motion inflammatory responses that have been linked to aging-related effects.
The good news is that an extract of the Indian plant Boswellia serrata has been shown to neutralize 5-LOX. Used for centuries to help with inflammation, boswellia acts as a natural 5-LOX inhibitor that blocks its unwanted effects. A boswellia compound called AKBA (3-O-acetyl-11-keto-ß-boswellic acid) seems to be the key to its beneficial action.
Omega-3 oils contain highly beneficial eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which are usually lacking in the typical Western diet. With Mega EPA/DHA you can get your daily requirements for these critical fatty acids fulfilled. Mega EPA/DHA contains twice as much EPA and DHA as most conventional, commercially available fish oil capsules, which means that you will have a much higher potency of EPA/DHA in this product, compared to other conventional products that also contain EPA and DHA. Furthermore, EPA and DHA can help diminish inflammation.
The Science Behind the Product:
Each of the products in Anti-Inflammation Kit is based on scientific research:
Curcumin promotes your body's healthy response to inflammation by inhibiting key inflammatory factors such as NF-kappaB. This is a protein molecule that acts like an "on-switch" in genes governing the body's pro-inflammatory responses. In relation to this, curcumin has been shown to exert powerful inhibitory effects on NF-kappaB activation.
Furthermore, clinical trials suggest that curcumin can promote healthy bowel function and joint health.
Moreover, curcumin can also benefit your mind. Curcumin extract promotes the health of the immune system by inhibiting histamine release from mast cells. In some studies, curcumin supported healthy brain function and offered neuro-protective benefits.
Curcumin also supports pancreatic function by encouraging pancreatic islet health. Curcumin's multifaceted benefits even include antioxidant protection as well as hormone balance support. Finally, research indicates that curcumin can help protect against estrogen-mimicking chemicals, help protect against free radicals, and promote normal cell growth.
A boswellia compound called AKBA (3-O-acetyl-11-keto-ß-boswellic acid) seems to be the key to its beneficial action. The problem is that boswellia is poorly absorbed into the blood. For this reason, a form of boswellia called AprèsFlex® is introduced, which absorbs into the blood much better than previously available boswellia extracts. Each 100 mg vegetarian capsule of 5-LOX Inhibitor with AprèsFlex® provides sufficient AKBA for one day.
Omega-3 oils contain eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which are usually lacking in the typical Western diet.
Studies report that the Mediterranean diet, rich in omega-3 fatty acids, monounsaturated fatty acids such as that found in olive oil, and antioxidant-rich fruits, vegetables, and herbs, is linked to increased lifespan. Other studies report that omega-3’s is important in cardiovascular health.
It is well known that a diet rich in omega-3s reduces the body's overall burden of inflammation. The fatty acids produce their anti-inflammatory effects in different ways such as being converted into inflammation resolving molecules and by directly targeting the activity of genes involved in inflammation A proper intake of both EPA and DHA, therefore, supports a healthy inflammatory response.
