The benefits of inflavonoid intensive care

Inflavonoid Intensive Care is a unique formula to relieve acute inflammation, developed after long studies and research by a team of health care experts which includes scientists, researchers, and naturopaths.

Inflammation is characterised by pain, heat and swelling.

Positive benefits of controlling chronic inflammation:

  • Digestive health
  • Improved immobility
  • Reducing pain caused by arthritis
  • Improved health and vitality

Positive outcomes of Inflavonoid Intensive Care:

  • As affective as NSAIDs
  • Gut friendly
  • Liver friendly
  • Safe for long term use

The ingredients in Inflavonoid Intensive Care work at various points within the inflammatory cascade to decrease inflammation and pain via the following:

  • Boswellia prevents 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX).
  • White willow bark prevents prostaglandin synthesis by inhibiting cyclo-oxygenase (COX-2) mediated prostaglandin release shown in vitro.
  • Ginger suppresses prostaglandin synthesis through inhibition of COX and LOX.
  • Quercetin prevents the activation of NF-ƙB demonstrated in vitro studies.
  • Volatile oils, naturally found in BCM-95™ Turmeric, contribute to its effect.

These oils show antiinflammatory activity with ability to stick to the nuclear receptor, perisome proliferator-activated receptor γ (PPARγ), prevent prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) production and prevent inducible nitric oxide production during the inflammation process. To maximise the benefits of Inflavonoid Intensive Care, a unique extract of boswellia, turmeric, and ginger are added.

Inflavonoid Intensive Care is for people who experience strain, a high work load or stress, inflammation and pain. Taking Inflavonoid Intensive Care daily will reduce inflammation and pain. It can also help to boost energy and help following intense exercise or “weekended warrior syndrome”.

Osteoarthritis

osteoarthritis degeneration back painDegeneration of the spine is a prevalent problem that generally advances with age, though is not always restricted to the elderly1.

The presence of osteoarthritis is not always consistent with pain either. While progressive joint failure may cause pain and disability, approximately 50% of people with osteoarthritic changes don’t have any symptoms2. This is known as the “structure-symptom discord”.

How the spine degenerates and how pain is experienced is multifactorial. Firstly, osteoarthritis begins when there is an imbalance of mechanical load that exceeds the limit of what joint tissues can handle. Bony changes and inflammation cause dysfunction and instability of the joints. Secondly, changes to the nervous system occur around the spine, then spinal cord, and finally brain. How people move starts to change; muscle strength changes; and finally sensory awareness of their body changes. When these systems break down, the person experiences persistent pain (Fig. 1).

How such dramatic alterations in shape of the spine occur over time (Fig. 2) is primarily due to a decrease in nutrition to the discs between the vertebrae3. The primary source of nutrition for the intervertebral discs are the end plates of the vertebrae. As degeneration progresses, fissures, cracks, clefts and fractures occur in the end plates, resulting in them thinning and water volume being lost from within the disc. This reduces disc height, misaligning mechanical forces and changing the shape of the spine (Fig. 3). As a consequence, more stress and strain is placed on the joints of the spine creating back pain. Long term pain can lead to more permanent, dysfunctional changes in the central nervous system ■
