Why These Natural Ingredients?
This orange-colored spice, used for thousands of years in cooking and
medicine, contains curcumin, one of the most potent known natural anti-inflammatory
agents. The pharmacologically active component of turmeric, curcumin
limits the action of lipoxygenase and cyclooxygenase reducing inflammation
in the body. While some manufacturers use unstandardized turmeric with
fluctuating levels of curcumin, Inflamma-bLOX includes 850 mg of standardized
turmeric, guaranteed to contain 95% curcumin.
Scullcap Root Extract
Scullcap root has been used historically in Chinese medicine for allergies,
inflammatory diseases and other conditions. Activities include: antioxidant,
anti-inflammatory, inhibition of Prostaglandin E2.
Propolis is high in flavonoids, which by themselves may account for
many of the benefits attributed to propolis. Caffeic acid phenethyl ester
(CAPE) is an important component in propolis, acting with antiinflammatory,
antioxidant and immune-enhancing activities. Additionally, Propolis does
not harm cartilage regeneration when compared with typical NSAIDs.
