Product Overview


  • For Longer Life
  • Next Generation Boswellia Extract
  • Dietary Supplement

Normal aging results in higher-than-desired levels of 5-LOX.

The typical American diet adds to the danger. Foods rich in omega-6 fatty acids like red meat, poultry, eggs and dairy products, along with high-glycemic carbohydrates, trigger overproduction of arachidonic acid. In response to high levels of arachidonic acid, the body produces the 5-LOX enzyme.

5-LOX breaks down arachidonic acid to pro-inflammatory compounds like leukotriene B4, a molecule that mediates attacks to joints, arterial walls, and other tissues. 5-LOX itself facilitates undesirable cell division changes.

The good news is that an extract of the Indian plant Boswellia serrata has been shown to neutralize 5-LOX. Used for centuries to help with inflammatory issues, boswellia acts as a natural 5-LOX inhibitor, intervening at the cellular level to block its unwanted effects. Confirmatory data reveal that a compound contained in boswellia called AKBA (3-O-acetyl-11-keto-ß-boswellic acid) is the key to its beneficial action.

The problem is that boswellia is poorly absorbed into the blood. For this reason, a patent-pending, standardized form of boswellia called AprèsFlex is being introduced. AprèsFlex absorbs into the blood 52% more than previously available boswellia extracts.

Each 100 mg vegetarian capsule of 5-LOX Inhibitor with AprèsFlex is standardized to provide 20% of active AKBA from boswellia. Most people need only one capsule a day.

Suggested Use

Read the entire label and follow the directions carefully prior to use.

To inhibit the 5-lipoxygenase enzyme, take one (1) capsule daily with or without food, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner.

Other Ingredients

Microcrystalline cellulose, vegetable cellulose (capsule), silica, vegetable stearate.

seemed to help arthritis symptoms and chronic neck/back pain

Posted by Reviewer3249808 on May 03, 2017 | Verified Purchase

I have tried many medications, therapies, CAM, and various herbal products over the past 15-20 years. While a good hot shower or heating pad probably do the best, I can't live in the shower or bed. I found the 5-lox inhibitor about 4-6 months ago. I was taking 1-2 times a day (mostly twice a day for the past several months) and ran out a few weeks ago. I was feeling pretty good so I took a chance on not ordering any more. I have noticed that for the past 3-4 days my back has really been hurting and this morning I woke up and my feet hurt the minute they touched the floor. It took me until tonight to make the connection. I don't plan to run out of this again. Had already shown my PCP an article about this so they are doing real research on it. Update 5/3/17 I've been using this for about 6-8 months now with pretty good results. I even skipped my 6 month follow up with the rheumatologist. However, now I can tell the effects are starting to wane a little. Even though the weather is warming up, the pain in my feet and hands and legs is starting up again. So, maybe, like most medications (real and herbal), I've built up a tolerance to the effects. I plan to continue this for a while, then maybe take a break and try it again or switch to something else. However, I still highly recommend giving it a try for general arthritis pain.

It helps to minimize just a little of shoulder pain.

Don't think I will be ordering this again for shoulder pain. I'm using Now Foods celadrin lotion, which seems to work better.
