Three enzymes called COX-1, COX-2, and 5-LOX trigger the inflammation reaction, which is useful to a point in the healing process, but can also cause intense, lasting pain. Prescription medicines like non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are often used to inhibit the production of these enzymes, but they cause problems of their own. COX-1 does trigger inflammation, but it's the mildest of the three and also helps protect the stomach lining. Long term use of these prescriptions can cause serious problems in your digestive system, like bleeding ulcers.
That's why NOW developed D-Flame, an herbal solution to pain and inflammation. Its natural ingredients deal with the more damaging COX-2 and 5-LOX, leaving COX-1 intact. Powerful herbs like Holy Basil, Turmeric, Boswellin, and Bromelain combine to naturally help reduce pain from sports injury, or even as a part of a long term pain management program. Antioxidants and complementary herbal compounds help provide whole body support, especially heart and immune health. NOW D-Flame, perfect for treating the occasional sports injury, or improving overall health.
Day-to-day living can take a serious toll on many of the body's most vital systems. NOW D-Flame is a potent herbal complex that can be taken to help inhibit the effects of COX-2 and 5-LOX, two naturally-occurring enzymes associated with a host of inflammatory conditions. Safe to use daily, this powerful composite may help curtail the aches, pains and stress that we face every day. In addition, this synergistic blend may be especially effective in supporting both vascular and general health by normalizing our body's production of COX-2 and 5-LOX enzymes.
