of the enzyme 5-lipoxygenase or 5-LOX sets in motion inflammatory

individuals. Normal aging results in higher-than-desired levels of
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 breaks down arachidonic acid to pro-inflammatory compounds like
leukotriene B4, a molecule that attacks joints, arterial walls, and
other tiues. 5-LOX itself facilitates undesirable cell division
The good news is that extract of the Indian plant Boswellia serrata
has been shown to neutralize 5-LOX. Used for centuries to help with
inflammatory iues, 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--boswellic acid) is the key to its beneficial
action. The problem is that boswellia is not readily absorbed into the
For this reason, a patent-pending, standardized form of boswellia
called Apr sFlex is being introduced that absorbs into the blood 52%
more than previously available boswellia extracts. Each 100 mg
vegetarian capsule of 5-LOX Inhibitor with Apr sFlex is standardized to
provide 20% of active AKBA from boswellia. Most people need only one
capsule a day.
