Product Overview : Life Extension, 5-Lox Inhibitor With Apresflex 100 mg, 60 Capsules

Description: 
  • Gluten Free
  • Non GMO LE Certified
  • Next Generation Boswellia Extract
  • Dietary Supplement

Compounds in Boswellia extract have been shown to bind directly to 5-LOX, an enzyme that transforms fatty acids into inflammatory factors like leukotriene B4.. A compound in boswellia called AKBA is the key to this beneficial action. Each 100 mg vegetarian capsule of 5-LOX Inhibitor with AprèsFlex® is standardized to provide 20% of active AKBA from boswellia.

AprèsFlex® absorbs 52% more than standard boswellia extract and is standardized for the active AKBA compound.

5-LOX Inhibitor with AprèsFlex® Benefits

  • Made with standardized Boswellia serrata extract 
  • Promotes a healthy inflammatory response by inhibiting 5-LOX enzyme 
  • Supports joint health, arterial health & healthy cell division

Better-Absorbed Boswellia 

Boswellia is an extract that can inhibit inflammatory factors to support joint and arterial health. In this supplement, we use a standardized form of boswellia called AprèsFlex® that absorbs into the blood 52 percent more than previously available boswellia extracts. Each vegetarian capsule of 5-LOX Inhibitor with AprèsFlex® provides 100 mg of this innovative extract.

5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX) is an enzyme that transforms fatty acids into leukotrienes. Since 5-LOX levels increase over time, excess 5-LOX has been linked to some of the common effects of normal aging.

Boswellia extract inhibits 5-LOX 

The Indian plant Boswellia serrata contains compounds shown to inhibit 5-LOX to support joint and arterial health. Boswellia inhibits 5-LOX at the cellular level. Scientific data reveals that a compound in boswellia called AKBA (3-O-acetyl-11-keto-ß-boswellic acid) is the key to this beneficial action.

But boswellia compounds are poorly absorbed into the blood. For this reason, we’ve used AprèsFlex®, a standardized form of boswellia extract. AprèsFlex® absorbs into the blood 52% more than previously available boswellia extracts.

Dietary factors increase 5-LOX prevalence 

The typical American diet adds to 5-LOX levels. Foods rich in omega-6 fatty acids like red meat, poultry, eggs and dairy products, along with high-glycemic carbohydrates, trigger production of arachidonic acid. The body produces 5-LOX enzyme in response to arachidonic acid.

Benefits of modulating 5-LOX 

5-LOX creates compounds like leukotriene B4 out of arachidonic acid. Inhibiting leukotriene B4 helps support joint, arterial and tissue health. Inhibiting 5-LOX also helped support healthy cell division in preclinical models.

Each 100 mg vegetarian capsule of 5-LOX Inhibitor with AprèsFlex® is standardized to provide 20% of active AKBA from boswellia. Most people need only one capsule a day.

Suggested Use: 

Read the entire label and follow the directions carefully prior to use.
