One dosage of zyflamend delivers 6mg of naturally occurring reservatrol.

Zyflamend and Inflammation Modulation

  • Columbia University
  • Univ. Texas M.D. Cancer Center

Zyflamend modulates COX-2 (Cyclooxygenase 2)

-Enzyme responsible for production of a molecule (PGE2) that is a key mediator of general inflammation that influences Joint health and Prostate health

Zyflamend modulates 5-LOX activity (5-Lipoxygenase)

-Enzyme responsible for production of critical regulators of Lung health and Prostate health

Zyflamend modulates 12-LOX (12-Lipoxygenase)

-Enzyme responsible for production of a critical regulator of Breast health, Lung health and Prostate health

Zyflamend modulates NF-KappaB (Nuclear Factor Kappa Beta)

- A gene transcription factor often described as the “on switch” for inflammation; controls synthesis of multiple mediators of inflammation, including COX-2 and 5-LOX that impact Bone health and Normal tissue growth

Zyflamend modulates C-Reactive Protein

-A blood marker used to assess inflammation and Heart health

Astaxanthin is another anti-inflammatory supplement I previously posted about. Supplementing with both Zyflamend and Astaxanthin is a natural way to reduce pain and inflammation with no harmful side effects. Each supplement has their own unique abilities, but taking them together will help resolve several conditions specific to each individual.

We are all different and supplementing with various nutrients and formulas will present diverse results. If you are not getting desired results from one particular supplement, then try another. This is why I research and look for different supplements to be able to produce a variety to choose from.

There are other herbal formulas that you can take but try and remember to buy high quality products to get the best results. You do not have to spend a fortune to find good quality products, just look around and do comparison shopping. There is no perfect supplement for everyone, results may vary between individuals.

Wishing You an Enjoyable and Pain Free Life!

I stumbled upon Astaxanthin (asta-Zan-thin) while looking for an all natural supplement that battles arthritis symptoms. To my surprise this amazing nutrient not only ease symptoms of arthritis, but increases your energy level, protects your skin from sun damage, reduces muscle soreness after strenuous exercise, and much more.

What is Astaxanthin?

Astaxanthin is a carotenoid or pigment extracted from microalgae grown in Kona, Hawaii, to formulate a clinically tested all natural supplement with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

Natural Astaxanthin is found in both plant and animal throughout the world. Salmon, shrimp, lobster, crab and trout all contain natural Astaxanthin. Salmon has the highest concentration of Astaxanthin and the flamingo bird acquires it’s pinkish/orange color from natural Astaxanthin.

A Supreme Natural Anti-inflammatory Supplement

NSAIDS or anti-inflammatory drugs such as, Aspirin… Tylenol… and the strong COX-2 inhibitors Vioxx and Celebrex including Methotrexate have dangerous side effects. They either  cause stomach bleeding, liver damage, heart problems or death.

People are turning towards a natural alternative like glucosamine and chondroitin, which works well for some, but many are not getting the results they seek which is… to relieve arthritis symptoms of pain… stiffness and inflammation.

So, what can a person take to get rid of their undesirable condition of pain and inflammation? Why not try Natural Astaxanthin?

247 Astaxanthin users participated in a health questionnaire that revealed…

Over 80% of those reporting back pain and symptoms from osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis reported an improvement from Astaxanthin supplementation. Astaxanthin supplementation was also reported to improve symptoms of asthma and enlarged prostate. All of these conditions have an inflammation component which is closely tied to oxidative damage (Guerin, et al, 2002).

Chemistry and metabolic rates are different for each individual, therefore, results of Astaxanthin may vary. It is a natural supplement, not a drug. On  average, it takes two to four weeks for noticeable results to unveil. Natural remedies may take longer to work, but the effects are long lasting and there is no dangerous outcome.

The recommended dosage of Astaxanthin is 4-12 mg per day. The only probable side effect for those who feel the need to take a lot more than the recommended dosage is a slight orange discoloration in the palms of your hands and bottom of your feet. To avoid this… stick with the recommended dosage.


Inflammation is a necessary process our bodies experience when injury or infection is involved. When we sprain an ankle… tear muscles or ligaments, our body’s inflammatory system or response kicks in. Inflammation forms around the affected area of injury to initiate the healing process.

When inflammation lingers it can cause tissue damage, and inflammatory conditions. There is a long list of inflammatory diseases and some of which are:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Ankylosing spondylitis
  • Lupus Erythematous
  • Asthma
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Diverticulitis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease

The power of Astaxanthin as an anti-inflammatory has been researched and demonstrated in-vitro and in-vivo. Further research on human subjects with various inflammatory conditions proved the powerful anti-inflammatory effects of Astaxanthin. Astaxanthin has the ability to suppress certain inflammatory mediators which include, prostaglandin E-2… tumor necrosis factor alpha… interleukin 1B… and nitric oxide. It also demonstrated the ability to suppress  the COX-2 enzyme and the nuclear factor kappa-B (Lee, et al, 2003).

A Miraculous Antioxidant

Natural Astaxanthin was first promoted as the strongest antioxidant in the 1990’s before other health interests were discovered. Testimonials from early users of natural Astaxanthin reported diminished pain from arthritis, ability to stay in the sun longer without being sun burned, increased endurance while exercising or strenuous activity and enhanced energy. Laboratory research along with these testimonials led to clinical studies of humans and the use of natural Astaxanthin.

Antioxidants decrease damaging effects of free radicals and oxidation within the body. Free radicals are responsible for rapid aging, which can manifest, externally as wrinkles, dry skin or skin cancer. Internal tissue damage associated with free radicals can also cause various forms of cancer and other unfavorable conditions.

The effects of free radical damage also include loss of muscle tone, the weakening and possible destruction of DNA cells, and immune system modification.

Causes of Free Radicals

Small quantities of free radicals are produced during normal digestion… breathing… immune system functioning… or by activities such as, exercising. Stress is the cause of a large production of free radicals. Our bodies are designed to fight low levels of free radicals naturally through enzyme (superoxide dismutase) production and diets consisting of oranges (vitamin C), citrus bioflavonoids, green leafy vegetables, beta carotene and lutein. These are considered dietary antioxidants. The problem that exist is, we don’t consume enough of these dietary antioxidants to eradicate all the free radicals produced by stress alone.

Other causes of free radicals are smoke, chemical pollutants, car fumes and guest what… barbecue or burnt food! Sun rays produce an enormous amount of free radicals, which cause skin cancer in numerous people.

Supplementing with a powerful antioxidant is necessary to protect our bodies from the ravages of free radicals.

In-vitro experiments have proven Astaxanthin to be the strongest natural antioxidant in the world. It is 550 times more potent than vitamin E. Although Astaxanthin and beta carotene have similar properties; Astaxanthin is  11 times more powerful.

Lutein is another carotenoid with antioxidant characteristics, and Astaxanthin is up to 3 times the strength  of lutein. It is safe to say that Astaxanthin is a great alternative for eye health and strength.

Benefits of Astaxanthin

Regular use of Astaxanthin can improve several conditions including:

  • Tendonitis
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Arthritis
  • Inflammation
  • Eye Health and Strength
  • Healthy Brain (Alzheimer’s)
  • Joint & Muscle Soreness after exercising
  • Central Nervous System
  • Wrinkles & the effects of aging… Skin Rejuvenation
  • Colds & Flu
  • Strength & Endurance
  • Immune System
  • Cardiovascular Health (Hypertension)
  • Gastric Ulcers

Astaxanthin can benefit anyone, including athletes, not only those with inflammatory or autoimmune diseases. It helps to reduce pain and inflammation in tendons, joints and muscles. It is a miraculous and powerful antioxidant with the ability to protect the skin by performing as an internal sunscreen.

The Best Astaxanthin

BioAstin is the best brand of Natural Astaxanthin. Be careful when buying Astaxanthin, because there are synthetic brands on the market. Synthetic brands will not give you the benefits you seek. Natural Astaxanthin comes from the Haematococcus microalgae. BioAstin Natural Hawaii Natural Astaxanthin Supreme 6mg Astaxanthin is available in 4 mg gelcaps and BioAstin Supreme 6mg vegetarian softgels.

Natural Astaxanthin Ingredients:

Vitamin A (as Beta-Carotene)

Lutein (from BioAstin®)

My Testimonial

I have been supplementing with BioAstin’s Natural Astaxanthin for 4 weeks now. After 3 weeks, I noticed a remarkable change. I had been dealing with pressure pain in the area where my tailbone is located for about 3 – 31/2 years, after a fall on that area. I only felt pain after sitting for long periods of time. The CT exam showed no visible or abnormal findings. I can honestly testify to the miraculous benefit of Astaxanthin. The pain has subsided! I can sit long periods without pain or discomfort, and I feel great overall.

Give Astaxanthin a try. There is no harm or toxicity associated with Natural Astaxanthin. It can only enhance your life, in one way or another.

Wishing You an Enjoyable and Pain Free Life
