5-LOXIN® is a new, patented and standardised extract of Boswellia serrata providing 30% acetyl-11-keto-beta boswellic acid (AKBA), one of the most powerful boswellic acids for joint health and inflammatory problems.
Standard Boswellia serrata extracts have demonstrated anti-inflammatory efficacy but they generally contain only 2% to 3% AKBA.
5-LOXIN® inhibits inflammation by destroying the action of the enzyme 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX), which is involved in biosynthesis of the inflammation mediators leucotrienes, as well as by inhibiting the adherence molecules ICAM and VCAM, also involved in inflammation.
In the presence of excess arachidonic acid, the body increases production of enzymes such as 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX) in order to degrade this acid. 5-LOX directly stimulates cancer cell proliferation. In addition, the breakdown products generated by this degradation process, such as leucotriene B4, 5-HETE and hydroxylated fatty acids, cause tissue destr ...
