ArthroMax with Theaflavins
Joint stiffness and discomfort is also a consequence of aging. With advancing age, there's an increase in certain destructive cytokines (immune-modulating agents) that contribute to degenerative conditions. Tumor necrosis factor (TNF-alpha) is one such agent. These pro-inflammatory agents have been implicated in a host of age-related problems including issues related to joints. 3
Blocking the actions of cytokines is crucial for joint health. In addition to protecting joints from damaging free radicals, replacing naturally occurring joint-supporting nutrients like glucosamine and chondroitin is also important.
ArthroMax is a multi-nutrient formula designed to provide broad-spectrum support for aging joints and cartilage. And based on recent scientific findings, ArthroMax has been enhanced with higher potencies of certain ingredients and now also contains theaflavins.
This ArthroMax formula contains more glucosamine sulfate along with a special Boswellia extract known as 5-LOXIN. Glucosamine sulfate provides underlying structural foundation for joints while 5-LOXIN inhibits the 5-lipoxygenase enzyme, thereby reducing levels of pro-inflammatory leukotriene B4.
Inflammatory reactions are regulated by a series of cytokines produced in the body. Normal aging results in an unfavorable balance of cytokines that contributes to persistent inflammatory conditions. New studies have shown that a special fraction found in black tea suppresses pro-inflammatory cytokines at the genomic level. Scientists have found that these compounds called theaflavins uniquely down-regulate the expression of genes and cytokines associated with inflammatory conditions. 33
ArthroMax provides these bioactive theaflavin fractions, along with methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), which contains sulfur and methyl groups that are critically important in maintaining connective tissues such as tendons and cartilage. FruiteX B OsteoBoron, a patented form of boron identical to natural plant forms found in food and considered more bioavailable than other forms of boron, also supports healthy bones and joints.
ArthroMax with Theaflavins has less than 10 mg of caffeine per serving (the amount found in a quarter cup of brewed green tea).
