Life Extension ArthroMax® with Theaflavins & AprèsFlex®
ArthroMax® with Theaflavins & AprèsFlex® is one of our ArthroMax® family of joint supplements. It combines five innovative nutrients to support joint and connective tissue health and mobility.
As you grow older, age-related stiffness and discomfort in the joints becomes a fact of life. Activities once routine become a challenge as limited mobility hampers your every move.
Inflammatory reactions are regulated by a series of "cytokines" produced in the body. Normal ageing results in an unfavourable balance of these cytokines that contributes to persistent inflammatory conditions. Studies have shown that a special fraction found in black tea suppresses proinflammatory cytokines at the genomic level. Scientists have found that these compounds called theaflavins uniquely downregulate the expression of genes associated with inflammatory cytokines.
ArthroMax® with Theaflavins & AprèsFlex® provides bioactive theaflavin fractions, along with MSM (methylsulfonylmethane), which contains sulfur components that are critically important in maintaining comfortable joint function. It also contains FruiteX B® OsteoBoron®, a patented form of boron identical to natural plant forms found in food. Considered more bioavailable than other forms of boron, FruiteX B® OsteoBoron® also supports healthy bones and joints.
AprèsFlex® represents a quantum leap forward in the delivery of boswellia to ageing joints. Long prized for its ability to help inhibit inflammatory factors, boswellia is especially effective at inhibiting the 5-LOX (5-lipoxygenase) enzyme.
Excess activity of 5-LOX results in the accumulation of leukotriene B4, a pro-inflammatory compound that affects aging joints. Boswellia has been shown to bind directly to the 5-LOX enzyme, preventing it from facilitating production of pro-inflammatory leukotrienes.
