Moderates immune mediators to provide comprehensive respiratory function support
Healthy plasma concentrations of antioxidants, including carotenoids, vitamin C and selenium, have been associated with maintaining healthy airway and respiratory function. One recent trial indicated that serum antioxidant levels were positively associated with vital capacity and expiratory volume. Additional studies suggest that beta-carotene and vitamin C supplementation promote respiratory function after exercise. A double blind, placebo-controlled study revealed that boswellia serrata promoted healthy breathing, vital capacity, expiratory volume and flow rate. 5-LOXIN AKBA boswellia serrata extract is a patent pending extract providing ten times as much 3-acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid (AKBA) as typical boswellia extracts. It offers powerful support for maintaining healthy 5-lipoxygenase enzyme activity, moderating the effects of immune mediators. Numerous studies have revealed that vitamin B6 supplementation promotes respiratory health, most likely by modulating prostacyclin, thromboxane and leukotriene metabolism. Flavonols from quercetin and defatted perilla seed extract maintain healthy histamine and cytokine release in mast cells. Randomized double blind, placebo-controlled crossover trials have revealed that ginkgo promotes healthy bronchial dilation while forskolin demonstrates similar potential. Another study revealed that ginkgo plays a role in T cell activity and moderates histamine release.
Respiratory Support Complex is a synergistic combination designed to promote plasma antioxidant levels, moderate histamine and cytokine release, and maintain healthy thromboxane and leukotriene metabolism to enhance bronchial and respiratory function. Ingredients:
