Life Extension, 5-Lox Inhibitor With Apresflex 100 mg, 60 Capsules
Product Overview : Life Extension, 5-Lox Inhibitor With Apresflex 100 mg, 60 Capsules
- 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
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.
Read the entire label and follow the directions carefully prior to use.
To inhibit the 5-lipoxygenase enzyme, take one (1) capsule daily, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner.
