5-LOX Inhibitor with AprèsFlex®
100 mg 60 vegetarian capsules
Item Catalog Number:
01639

5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX) is a member of the lipoxygenase family of enzymes. It transforms fatty acids into leukotrienes. Excess levels of the enzyme 5-LOX sets in motion inflammatory responses that have been linked to common effects in aging individuals.70-74

Normal aging results in higher-than-desired levels of 5-LOX.

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

5-LOX breaks down arachidonic acid to pro-inflammatory compounds like leukotriene B4,75 a molecule that mediates attacks to joints, arterial walls, and other tissues. 5-LOX itself facilitates undesirable cell division changes. 76,77

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 inflammatory issues, boswellia acts as a natural 5-LOX inhibitor, intervening at the cellular level to block its unwanted effects. Confirmatory data reveal that a compound contained in boswellia called AKBA (3-O-acetyl-11-keto-ß-boswellic acid)78,79 is the key to its beneficial action.

The problem is that boswellia is poorly absorbed into the blood.80 For this reason, a patent-pending, standardized form of boswellia called AprèsFlex® is being introduced. AprèsFlex® absorbs into the blood 52% more than previously available boswellia extracts.80

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.

I have been experimenting with several supplements in this category. I am pleased to say that I no longer take glucosamine sulfate or any other joint formulas after witnessing the excellent results with this product. I also have my 80+ year-old parents taking it with impressive results.

Doesn't work nearly as well as 5-LOXIN

Even taking two a day didn't work nearly as well as three 5-LOXIN a day did, despite the claims that one a day would work at least as well as the 5-LOXIN...Read complete review

Even taking two a day didn't work nearly as well as three 5-LOXIN a day did, despite the claims that one a day would work at least as well as the 5-LOXIN did. Glad that others are still selling it, but it's a shame there's no longer an LEF 5-LOXIN.

      I tend to be really stiff in the mornings after doing sports the day before. I used Arthromax before, which seemed to work as well, but was a twice a day. This one works just as well and is only taken once a day.

            I like the idea of a natural product formulated for better and perhaps quicker absorption by the body. The capsule is easy to swallow, has a pleasing appearance, and fits in with other products I take to help reduce inflammatory processes within the body. It is part of a pro active personal approach to maintain good health as the years advance.
