FlamLeve reduces inflammation and pain and protects your body from inflammatory damage. FlamLeve is ideally used to relieve mild pain, discomfort and stiffness resulting from muscle injury and inflammation, as well as an assistive therapy for acute and chronic inflammatory conditions of the organs.
GreenFlam blend (contains curcumin & piperine extracts)
Curcumin is an organic compound sourced from a flowering plant (Curcuma longa). The dried and powdered root belongs to the ginger family and is extensively used in Eastern cuisine as the traditional spice turmeric.
Curcumin has also been used in Eastern traditional medicine to treat various inflammatory conditions including several forms of arthritis, inflammatory bowel disorders and chronic lung conditions. It contains several bioactive molecules that possess many health benefits, including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and pain-relieving properties.
As a spice in its natural form, curcumin is poorly absorbed into the body and rapidly passes through the intestines, thereby restricting its therapeutic use. Over the last 10 years, however, the introduction of modern pharmaceutical drug-delivery technologies has solved this limitation and expanded its benefits to several other organ systems besides the intestines.
The highly concentrated curcumin extract contained within FlamLeve, for example, demonstrates a 5-fold (500 times) increase in potency over curcumin in its natural state as turmeric. By pairing this potent concentrate with piperine, a natural molecule derived from black pepper, its bioavailability is further improved by a factor of 20. In total, this unique feature makes GreenFlam thousands of times more effective than the spice in its raw form.
Boswellia bark extract
Boswellia serrata is a small to medium sized tree that lives in the arid and mountainous regions of India and the Arabian Peninsula. Indian frankincense is derived from the bark sap of the tree. This sap builds up as a sticky resin in gashes cut into the bark of the tree where it is harvested. Due to its distinctive aroma, it is widely used in the manufacture of incense and perfumes.
Boswellia bark extract has been used for medicinal purposes as a natural anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving agent in Chinese and Indian Traditional medicine for centuries. Research has found that the bark extract contains a range of therapeutic molecules called boswellic acids which protect against inflammatory conditions in several bodily tissues, organs and joints.
Clinical trials have validated the efficacy of Boswellia bark extract against osteoarthritis, inflammatory pain, certain skin disorders and gingivitis. Research has also demonstrated benefits in other bodily tissues such neuro-inflammation triggered by brain injury in stroke patients, chronic kidney disease (CKD), inflammatory prostatitis in men and fibrocystic breast changes in women.
Convincing evidence from extensive medical research indicates that the damage caused by acute inflammation often plays a dominant role in the development of several chronic diseases. These include arthritis, obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, neurological diseases and cancer.
Several inflammatory molecules released by the immune system are also implicated in sustaining long-term, low level inflammation, a process directly linked to many chronic diseases. Suppressing the inflammatory pathways responsible has therefore become a modern therapeutic strategy for the prevention and alleviation of disease.
In depth research on the molecular effects of several of the medicinal compounds present in both curcumin and Boswellia bark extract has indicated that these plants demonstrate multimodal molecular activity via several biological targets involved in the activation and acceleration of inflammation. This includes the inhibition of NF-κβ based pro-inflammatory activation and a reduction in the levels the pain producing cytokine TNF-alpha. Other molecular targets include the enzymatic activation of the matrix metallopeptidases (MMPs), cathepsins (CatG) and prostaglandin E2 synthase-1 (mPGES-1), all powerful promotors of progressive tissue destruction.
FlamLeve contains a unique blend of herbal extracts that complement each other and work together against inflammation. The combined effects help to alleviate the pain and discomfort caused by inflammation and offer protection against inflammatory damage to tissues, joints and organs.
FlamLeve can be used for:
Assistance during acute inflammatory conditions and injuries
As a long-term protective supplement for chronic inflammatory disorders
FlamLeve contains a unique, proprietary, blend of herbal extracts that work together to help alleviate discomfort and pain caused by inflammation and prevent inflammatory damage to tissues and organs. These ingredients are:
One tablet contains:
Curcumin (95%, as turmeric extract)
Piperine (as black pepper extract)
|Boswellic acids (65%, as Boswellia serrata extract)||325 mg|
See below for a scientific overview of each of these ingredients.
FlamLeve can be used by anyone who is experiencing discomfort caused by inflammation, whether it is chronic or acute. This includes anyone suffering sports injuries, muscle strains or sprains as well as persons with more long term inflammatory disorders. FlamLeve is also an ideal assistive therapy for anyone dealing with chronic inflammatory conditions that may affect tissues or organs in the body.
Take 1-3 tablets per day as needed.
You should not take FlamLeve if you are hypersensitive or allergic to any of the active or inactive ingredients of FlamLeve, are pregnant, breastfeeding or are under the age of 12 years old.
Extensive clinical trials in human subjects have demonstrated that the natural ingredients contained in FlamLeve have a gentle anti-inflammatory effect with a low side-effect profile. These pose a low health risk, especially when compared to pharmaceutical anti-inflammatory and painkilling drugs. Mild gastrointestinal irritation may occur. To avoid this potential effect, FlamLeve should always be taken with food.
Yes, FlamLeve may be taken with most prescription drugs, including Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) and pain killers. Care should also be taken if you are taking Central Nervous System (CNS) depressants, anti-diabetic or blood thinning medications as FlamLeve may enhance their effects. It is always important to inform your doctor of any supplements you are taking, especially if you are already being treated for another condition.
