Here is more on the benefits of our ingredients:
The formula starts with Astragalus extract, which comes from the dried root of Astragalus membranaceus, a shrub plant from the legume family. Thought to prolong life and used for thousands of years in Chinese, Astragalus has modernly proven itself to show reduced inflammatory response (1). A clinical study observed that when injected with extract of astragalus, pediatric heart disease patients showed improved immune function (2). Astragalus also has proven antioxidative properties (1). Our bodies can accumulate harmful molecules called free radicals which can cause damage to the DNA of our cells and antioxidants help defend the body against them.
Flexicure’s next ingredient is also known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidative properties and is a familiar one to most, Turmeric. A staple spice in Indian cuisine, Turmeric has been used by Indians for far more than just flavoring. For centuries Indians considered Tumeric an effective medicinal plant. That’s because researched revealed turmeric’s active compound called curcumin which gives turmeric its powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a strong antioxidant itself. Curcumin has been found to improve symptoms of depression and arthritis (3) backing up turmeric’s ancient tradition as a remedy.
Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), a nutritional
supplement that serves as a great source for sulfur. It plays a role in anti-inflammation by reducing levels of inflammatory compounds subsequently reducing stress on the immune system. MSM also plays part in glutathione production, which is the body’s coveted antioxidant involved in many important cellular processes the body needs to repair tissue damage and maintain a healthy immune system (4).
The beet juice will help increase your stamina. Beets are full of natural chemicals called nitrates that our body can turn into nitric acid (NO). NO helps to improve blood flow and lowers our blood pressure and this is evident across many studies (5). Beets also offer a great source for potassium, a mineral that can help nerve and muscle function. More recent research has also revealed beets offer potent anti-inflammatory agents and a great component to an anti-inflammatory ingredient. As an ingredient in Flexicure's beverage formula, beet juice can boost your energy during the day, while enhancing your immune system.
Pineapple juice, the next ingredient in Flexicure’s formula, is a great source of vitamins. It contains high amounts of vitamin C, manganese, copper, vitamin B6 and Vitamin A, and these vitamins have antioxidants. Pineapple juice also contains an enzyme called bromelain which has many therapeutic effects. Bromelain helps triggers your body’s ability to fight pain and reduce swelling and is a common remedy for sports injuries and osteoarthritis (6).
Vitamin C is one of our immune systems greatest friends but a vitamin that our bodies can’t produce on their own. This makes incorporating vitamin C rich foods into our daily diet vital and is why it’s one of Fleixcure’s key components. Vitamin C works to support cell function against pathogens and to repair damaged skin cells after an infection or harm (7). This vitamin is also essential in cellular clearance after an immune attack and helps the body maintain balance and remain healthy. That’s why vitamin C is used as both a preventative and treatment in the clinics for a variety of diseases, (8) and one of the most popular vitamins people take.
Berries are small yet packed with nutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants. They have the highest content of antioxidants from all foods, with their very high nutrient content (9). They are also low in calories making them a great component of any nutritional diet. Furthermore, they’re a growing interest to clinical researchers as they offer great promising therapeutic effects. One study showed that powdered mixed berries extract is attributed to the apoptosis, or cellular death process, of cancer cells (10), slowing down or even obstructing cancer growth.
Citric acid is a well-known ingredient that gives lemons and citrus food their sour taste. But more than just a flavor, citric acid helps convert the food we eat into cellular energy. This is our cell’s holy grail of energy storage and creation, our body's citric acid cycle. Citric acid also promotes calcium, phosphorus and magnesium in our guts which helps the gut process and digest food (11).
Stevia is now well mainstream in many favorite food and beverage products and included in many weight-loss programs because of its low-calorie plant. Stevia also has strong naturally sweet taste, making it a staple alternative to sugar. But the potential benefits of stevia have yet to be fully discovered and is starting to be researched for its potential use as an additive treatment to help combat medical conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and heartburn (12).
With all their natural benefits, the herbal extracts that make up our Natural Anti-inflammatory Beverage Powder, offer an easy way to add a delicious energizing boost throughout your day while effortlessly working to strengthen and support your immune system.
