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 aging results in an unfavorable 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.1

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.2-4 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.5-7

AprèsFlex® represents a quantum leap forward in the delivery of boswellia to aging 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.8, 9

AprèsFlex® boswellia absorbs into the blood 52% better than previously available forms of boswellia, for superior effectiveness.10
