Who and why should use this product?
Inflammation is a response to injury, but it can also trigger pathways that lead to disease. In fact, researchers are finding inflammation plays a role in not only everyday aches and pains, but also most major diseases. While it’s impossible to completely eliminate all inflammatory triggers, it is possible to use natural mechanisms effective in reducing inflammation to feel your best everyday. This combination was designed to provide the best anti-inflammatory support, and is a good choice for those managing daily aches and pains and those looking to reduce the impact of the downstream effects of inflammation.
20Lighter co-founder Dr. Dembrowski reviewed the available nutritional supplements targeting inflammation and chose this combination because of the strength of the brands, the specific proprietary molecules, and synergy between the omega-3 fatty acids and flavonoids. Below is a short review of the information about each key ingredient found in the scientific literature.
Curcuma, from turmeric is listed as the active ingredient in over a hundred human clinical trials ranging from osteoarthritis to depression and cancer. Its effects have long been of interest but challenges relating to the molecule’s poor bioavailabilty were problematic. The proprietary CurQFen molecule in this supplement combo provides 7-10 times the absorption of standard preparations.
Xanthohumol is a hops-derived bioflavanoid antioxidant, and it has been the subject of intense study over the past ~7 years. Preclinical studies show the molecule has wide-ranging benefits, but of particular interest are it’s potent anti-inflammatory effects. There remains significant interest in this compound, as it has been the focus of four separate clinical trials laying the groundwork for additional investigations as a treatment for metabolic syndrome and in cancer prevention.
Omega-3 fatty acid benefits are now thought to go beyond cardio-protective potential benefits. These essential fatty acids (your body can’t make on it’s own) are now showing important roles in the interplay between the bacteria that reside in your GI Tract & immune system, and in health brain structure and function. Many of those who have tried Omega supplements found the fish oil flavor after ingestion to be distasteful. Dr. Dembrowski chose this product because of its high quality, EPA/DHA ratio, and the pleasant lemon flavor that eliminates an unpleasant after taste.
