5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX) is a member of the lipoxygenase family of enzymes and converts fatty acids into leukotrienes. Excess 5-LOX levels set off inflammatory responses that have been linked to aging and age-related diseases. By using 5-LOX Inhibitor, you can reduce inflammatory response, thus decreasing the risk of age-related disease.
The expression of the 5-LOX gene and the activity of the 5-LOX pathway are increased as we age. The typical North-European and American diet, with its emphasis on foods rich in omega-6 fatty acids such as red meat, poultry, eggs, dairy products and carbohydrates with a high glycaemic index (GI), increases the risk of raised 5-LOX levels and inflammatory responses that lead to age-related disease. These foods trigger overproduction of arachidonic acid, to which the body responds by producing the 5-LOX enzyme. 5-LOX breaks down arachidonic acid into pro-inflammatory compounds such as leukotriene B4, a molecule that mediates the inflammation involved in joint issues and cardiovascular and respiratory diseases. 5-LOX itself facilitates undesirable cell-division changes.
A healthy plant extract from the Indian Boswellia Serrata plant has been shown to neutralise 5-LOX. Used for centuries as a natural anti-inflammatory, boswellia acts as a natural 5-LOX inhibitor, which intervenes at the cellular level to block 5-LOX´s unwanted effects. The compound AKBA (3-O-acetyl-11-keto-ß-boswellic-acid) contained in boswellia has been revealed to be the key to the plant extract´s beneficial effects.
Unfortunately, boswellia difficult to absorb into the bloodstream. However, a patent-pending, standardised form of boswellia called AprèsFlex® is being introduced with better absorption. AprèsFlex® boswellia has a 52% higher absorbability into the blood and thus greater effectiveness than previously available forms of boswellia.
Each 100 mg vegetarian capsule of 5-LOX Inhibitor with AprèsFlex® is standardised to provide 20% of active AKBA from boswellia. Most people need only one capsule a day.
