Inflamma-bLOX is a comprehensive formula designed to address immune challenges and maintain normal inflammatory balance. Chronic inflammation results when acute inflammation fails to resolve and because of poor choices in lifestyle, diet and/or environmental factors. Inflamma-bLOX provides a blend of phytonutrients including skullcap, bee propolis, turmeric and graminex pollen extract for full-spectrum inflammatory support.
All Chronic disease is rooted in chronic inflammation. Internists, cardiologists, oncologists, and nutritionists continue to find evidence linking chronic inflammation with chronic diseases and the diseases of aging. The effects of chronic inflammation accumulate over a lifetime to manifest themselves in a number of disorders, including heart disease, cancer, diabetes, pulmonary disease, arthritis, erectile dysfunction, and Alzheimer’s disease.
Like any area of the body, the gastrointestinal tract can suffer the effects of chronic inflammation. The same persistent activation of the immune system that can occur in your joints (causing inflammatory arthritis) or arteries (provoking plaque buildup) can also take place in the gastrointestinal tract, inflaming or damaging the lining of the intestines and other parts of the digestive system. This gut inflammation may be caused by a variety of diseases (such as celiac disease), or it may be due to inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
Inflamma-bLOX CLINICAL APPLICATIONS
• Maintains Normal Inflammatory Balance
• Strengthens GI Barrier Integrity
• Boosts Immune Function
• Provides Key Nutrients for Cell Replication
Inflammation is a natural part of the body’s immune response, a cascade triggered to protect the body and maintain normal tissue repair. This physiological response is part of the innate immune or non-specific immune system, a first line of defense comprising the cells and mechanisms that defend against unwanted organisms in a non-specific manner. The inflammatory cascade is mediated by eicosanoids. Inflamma-bLOX provides a blend of nutrients to maintain normal inflammatory balance, while helping to balance eicosanoid and cytokine metabolism.
Skullcap Root Extract†
An extract of the root of Scutellaria baicalensis, this popular Chinese botanical has been shown to modulate viral activity and support cardiovascular health. Skullcap possesses potent antioxidant properties, and research has shown it attenuates NFkB and inhibits COX-2 expression.13 According to a recent study, the botanical boosts immune response to certain pathogens and supports normal respiration by protecting airways and preserving normal mitochondrial function.
Bee Propolis Extract 2X†
Bees create propolis by collecting a resinous sap from trees and then mixing it with wax within the hive. Propolis contains a diverse variety of potent terpenes and benzoic, caffeic, cinnamic, and phenolic acids. It is also high in flavonoids, which may account for many of its health benefits. Caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE), one of the main active components in propolis helps maintain normal inflammatory balance, protect against oxidative stress, inhibit lipoxygenase and both COX1 and COX2, balance the immune response, and down regulate NFkB production. Another study on endurance cyclists, showed CAPE has an immune protective effect by enhancing the temperature tolerance of immune cells during long, high intensity training sessions.
Turmeric Root Extract (Curcumin)†
Curcumin, the active compound in turmeric, an orange-colored spice used for thousands of years in cooking and medicine, has been shown to have strong NFkB-modulating properties and plays a crucial role in maintaining normal inflammatory balance. Studies have also shown that curcumin supports the maintenance of remission from ongoing inflammation in the GI tract, and promotes both gastrointestinal mucosal health and reduces stomach lining discomfort. It has been shown to provide cardiovascular protection and to help modulate low mood and fatigue by supporting a normal immune response, normalizing oxidative stress, and preventing intestinal hyperpermeability.Curcumin has also been shown to hold promise in supporting respiratory health.
GraminexTM G60 Pollen Extract†
GraminexTM Pollen Extract is a high-concentration, diverse array of phytochemicals. They have been used successfully to maintain normal inflammatory balance. Specifically, they have been shown to support healthy genito-urinary tract function, and have compared favorably to saw palmetto and Finasteride. Preclinical studies on pollen extract have shown its effect on the smooth muscles of the bladder and urethra, as well on modulation of inflammation, and reducing cell proliferation. Pollen extracts and derivatives have also been found to inhibit the generation of abnormal human cell lines
