Reduce Inflammation and Edema (Swelling)

Flavay® selectively binds to collagen in connective tissue of vessels and joints, preventing inflammation and lessening pain. (18,25,61,74,81)

Not only does inflammation cause pain and suffering, but over time it causes tissue destruction and a wide variety of autoimmune diseases. We now understand the correlation between continued active inflammation and arthritis, diabetes, retinopathies, heart disease and Alzheimer’s. (14,379-384,407,456)

Inflammation is the immune system's primary reaction to destroy invaders by breaking down the genetic material of bacteria, toxins, and viruses. Inflammation continues until the invaders are eliminated and tissue repair is completed. However, continued active (chronic) inflammation overwhelms the body's cells with oxidative stress and thereby destroys the cell's defense antioxidant systems. (14,456)

How exciting, then, to discover a safe and effective way to fight back against inflammation. Clinically proven to significantly strengthen the antioxidant defense systems, improve intracellular serum total antioxidant activity and reduce inflammatory markers, Flavay® has been sold worldwide for reducing inflammation and edema (swelling) and extensively tested in humans for 70 years.

69% of those taking Flavay reported
            50% reduction in clinical parameter scores for pain, paresthesias (burning, numbness, tingling, or prickling), nocturnal cramps and edema (swelling).

A double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 92 persons with chronic inflammation caused by chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) demonstrated improved venous function at a daily dose of 300 mg Flavay® for 28 days. 69% of those taking Flavay® reported 50% reduction in clinical parameter scores for pain, paresthesias (burning, numbness, tingling, or prickling), nocturnal cramps and swelling (edema). 75% of those taking Flavay® felt it was effective. (48)

In clinical trials, Flavay® significantly reduced inflammation, swelling and pain.

A six-month double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study of women recovering from breast surgery found Flavay® improved pain, skin tension and flexibility in movement.(82)

A randomized, controlled trial of 50 soccer players in France who had sustained sports injuries, found those taking Flavay® had significantly less inflammation than the placebo group. (88)

Flavay Methods of Action

Flavay Inhibits Pro-Inflammatory Mediators

Anti-Inflammatory Mechanisms

Flavay® Inhibits Destructive Arachidonic Acid Pathway

Important anti-inflammatory mechanisms of Flavay® are the inhibition of pro-inflammatory mediators including phospholipase A2, cyclooxygenase (COX-1 and COX-2), and lipoxygenase thereby reducing destructive ratios and concentrations of prostanoids, leukotrienes and thromboxanes. (Most importantly, this protection comes without the side effects common to NSAIDs.) (53,185,230,265,274,292,296,302)

Oxidative stress produces an increase in enzymes such as cyclooxygenase (COX) and lipoxygenase (LOX) which are implicated in the release of interleukins and chemokines, and it has been shown that Flavay® inhibits these pro-inflammatory enzymes. (391,185,230,387,388)

Inhibit the Destructive Cascade of Arachidonic Acid with Flavay. Chart oxidative stress activates phospholipase A-2, PLA2, which activates arachidonic acid in phospholipids in cell membranes. Cascades down two pathways, lipoxygenases (LOX) and cyclooxygenases (COX-1 and COX-2). Protecting against destructive ratios and concentrations of thromboxanes, prostaglandins, leukotrines, 12-Hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (12-HETE) and 15-Hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (15-HETE). Imbalances of 12-Hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (12-HETE) and 15-Hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (15-HETE) lead to inflammation, asthma, Alzheimer's, metabolic syndrome. Imbalances of prostaglandins and leukotrines lead to inflammation, atherosclerosis, joint destruction. Imbalances in thromboxanes leads to abnormal platelet aggregation, vasoconstriction.

(Above:) An important anti-inflammatory mechanism of Flavay® is the inhibition of pro-inflammatory mediators including phospholipase A2, cyclooxygenase (COX-1 and COX-2), and lipoxygenase thereby reducing destructive ratios and concentrations of prostanoids, leukotrienes and thromboxanes (without the side effects common to NSAIDs).

Flavay Strengthens Vessels and Reduces Leakage

Activates Collagen Production and Inhibits Degradation

Flavay® strengthens and tones veins, arteries, capillaries (the smallest vessels) and lymphoid tissues.

Scientific and clinical research establishes that Flavay® strengthens collagen in vascular walls and capillaries by making the vessels stronger and more elastic. Flavay® is shown to strengthen and rebuild the body’s natural collagen proteins and has the remarkable ability to reactivate collagen and elastin. Flavay® is also a strong antioxidant which protects collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid from over-crosslinking and destructive inflammation-produced enzymes. (18,25,61,74,81)

Flavay®’s ability to reactivate damaged collagen and elastin is important for all the organs. Collagen is required for normal functioning of the joints, healthy cartilage and bones, smooth gliding surfaces, synovial fluid, normal joint spaces and normal soft tissues surrounding the joints. Collagen is the building block of connective tissue, veins, arteries, ligaments and tendons—and every tissue and every organ.

Flavay® selectively binds to collagen in connective tissue of vessels and joints, preventing inflammation and lessening pain. (18,25,61,74,81)

Acute Inflammation and Recovery from Injuries

A double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study of 63 women undergoing treatment for lymph-edema resulting from breast cancer surgery found taking Flavay® (600 mg daily for six months) was superior to placebo in improving pain, skin tension, and arm and shoulder movements. (82)

In a double-blind, controlled trial of 32 subjects who had undergone facial cosmetic surgery, those given Flavay® for ten days had significantly less swelling than the placebo-treated group. (73)

In a randomized, controlled trial of 50 soccer players in France who had sustained sports injuries, those treated with Flavay® had significantly less swelling at the injured site over the next ten days than the placebo group. (88)

A similar study of soccer players in Australia also found the players who consumed Flavay® for ten days following their injuries experienced significantly less swelling than those who did not, and the swelling completely disappeared in some who were taking Flavay®. (80)

Chronic Inflammation

A review of three French double-blind clinical trials concluded that in subjects with chronic venous insufficiency, Flavay® significantly improved venous function in terms of swelling, pain, paresthesias (burning, numbness, tingling, or prickling) and nocturnal leg cramps. (42,230)

A much larger French study of 4,729 women taking hormone therapy reported that taking Flavay® (300 mg daily for three months) produced significant improvement in venous and lymphatic insufficiency. (59)

A multi-center study of 165 subjects with premenstrual symptoms, including breast tenderness, abdominal swelling, and pelvic pain found taking Flavay® resulted in 60% of subjects reporting improvement in, or cessation of, symptoms after initial treatment; when treatment duration doubled, subjects reporting improvement increased to 78%. (205)

A double-blind study of 50 subjects with chronic venous insufficiency found taking 150 mg Flavay® daily for one month had a more rapid and lasting effect on reducing peripheral edema (swelling) than 450 mg daily of Diosmin. (47)

A double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 92 subjects with chronic venous insufficiency demonstrated improved venous function at a daily dose of 300 mg of Flavay® for 28 days. 69% of those taking Flavay® reported 50% reduction in clinical parameter scores for pain, paresthesias (burning, numbness, tingling, or prickling), nocturnal cramps and edema (swelling). 75% of those taking Flavay® felt it was effective. (48)

Ocular Inflammation

Flavay® (100 mg per day) improved all cases of exudations (oozing fluids) on 147 subjects with retinopathy. (69)

An open study measured the effects of Flavay® on 26 subjects with retinopathy and capillary fragility, microaneurysms, exudates (oozing fluids) and hemorrhages. Capillary fragility (measured with Parrot's angiosterrometer) improved in 11 subjects, condition of the ocular fundus improved in 15 subjects, and overall improvement in 21 subjects was reported. (250)

A review of 26 clinical studies reveals Flavay® significantly improved vascular lesions, microaneurysms, and exudates (oozing fluids) associated with diabetic retinopathy. (71)

The effects of Flavay® (150 mg per day) were measured on 30 retinopathy subjects who suffered from microaneurysms, hemorrhages, exudations (oozing fluids) and neovascularization after capillary hypoxia. Retinal infectional lesions were stabilized in 80% of those taking Flavay®. (72)

Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

A study of 11 persons with systemic lupus erythematosus, shows taking Flavay® (along with usual medications) reduces inflammation associated with lupus. Significant reductions in lymphocyte apoptosis, T-lymphocyte activation, reduced generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) by neutrophils, lower erythrocyte sedimentation rates, and a decrease in the SLE disease activity index compared to the placebo group. The results show Flavay® can be useful as a second-line therapy to reduce inflammation in systemic lupus erythematosus. (422)

Gastric Inflammation (Ulcers)

Flavay® prevented formation of gastric lesions by 80% in a series of seven in vivo studies conducted over a period of six months. Researchers found Flavay® directly restrained production of histamine from histadine and indirectly restrained release of histamine from mast cells. 146

In a similar gastric study, Flavay® lowered the production of histamine with as much as 86% by inhibition of the enzyme of histidine decarboxylase. (78)

Flavay® is shown to significantly suppress gastric mucosal injury, in a dose-dependent manner, in vivo. Myeloperoxidase (MPO) activities (marker of inflammation) are also significantly inhibited. Endogenous antioxidant, superoxide dismutase (SOD) activities are significantly stimulated by Flavay®. As to gastrointestinal hormones, the secretion of gastrin, somatostatin, and histamine are significantly inhibited, while prostaglandin E2 secretion are significantly stimulated. (425)

Chronic Pancreatitis (inflammation in pancreas)

A study of three persons with chronic pancreatitis, characterized by epigastric pain with radiation to the back found a daily dose of 200-300 mg of Flavay® results in relief from pain. All subjects reported a significant reduction in pain severity and frequency of painful episodes, and two of three subjects reported a significant reduction in use of narcotic analgesics. All subjects reported their pain returned when they stopped treatment. (307)

Protection from NSAIDs Toxicity

Animal studies indicate taking Flavay® is beneficial in preventing hepatic and renal toxicity in cases of acetaminophen and other drug poisonings. This protection appears to be attributable to detoxification of cytotoxic free radicals or mediation of DNA repair.(309,310)

An animal study with myoglobinuric acute renal failure showed Flavay® administration reduces blood urea nitrogen and serum creatinine; histological improvement was also noted. (311)

Cardiovascular Inflammation

A double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled intervention study with 28 male smokers with 200 mg per day of Flavay®. At baseline, after 4 and 8 weeks researchers measured macro- and microvascular function and a cluster of systemic biomarkers for major pathological processes occurring in the vasculature: disturbances in lipid metabolism and cellular redox balance, and activation of inflammatory cells.

In the Flavay® group, serum total cholesterol and LDL decreased significantly by 5% and 7%, respectively in volunteers with elevated baseline levels. Additionally, after 8 weeks the ratio of glutathione to glutathione disulphide in erythrocytes rose from baseline by 22% the Flavay® group. Researchers observed that Flavay® supplementation exerts anti-inflammatory effects in blood towards ex vivo added bacterial endotoxin and significantly reduces expression of inflammatory genes in leukocytes and noted a "significant improvement of overall vascular health" in the Flavay® group. (454)

Wound Healing

Flavay® stimulates normal synthesis and inhibit over-production of nitric oxide which stimulates collagen synthesis and subsequent healing at wound sites. (312,313)

In addition, the induction of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is a crucial step in the reepithelialization phase of skin repair. Flavay® appears to stimulate the expression of VEGF in cultured keratinocytes, suggesting how Flavay® supports wound healing. (314,315,316,317)

Flavay® Reduces Inflammation in Multiple Ways

Flavay® works in multiple ways to lower inflammation: (1) by inhibiting release of compounds that promote inflammation, including histamine, serine proteases, prostaglandins and leukotrienes and (2) by improving vascular strength.

Study shows Flavay® significantly inhibits formation of pro-inflammatory cytokines, interleukin 1-beta, tumor necrosis factoralpha (TNF-alpha). (280)

Taking Flavay is shown to decrease levels of proinflammatory molecules C-reactive protein (CRP), interleukin-6 and tumor necrosis factoralpha (TNF-alpha). (435)

The anti-inflammatory effects of Flavay® are associated to inhibition of peroxide generation by macrophages. (272,278,279)

Several studies show Flavay® inhibits pro-inflammatory mediators phospholipase A2, cyclooxygenase (COX-1 and COX-2), and lipoxygenase thereby reducing destructive ratios and concentrations of prostanoids, leukotrienes and thromboxanes. (Most importantly, this protection comes without the side effects common to NSAIDs.)(53,265,274,292,296,302)

Flavay® is shown to inhibit lipoxygenase (LOX) and cyclooxygenase (COX). (185,230)

Flavay® enhanced IL-2 production by mitogen-stimulated splenocytes, decreased production of interleukin 6, and increased the cytotoxicity of natural killer cells. (318)

Two months of Flavay® significantly improved T- and B-cell function. (308)

Study shows Flavay® decreases levels of proinflammatory molecules C-reactive protein (CRP), interleukin-6 and tumor necrosis factoralpha (TNF-alpha). (435)

Flavay® significantly suppressed gastric mucosal injury, in a dose-dependent manner in vivo. Myeloperoxidase (MPO) activities (marker of inflammation) were also significantly inhibited. Endogenous antioxidant, superoxide dismutase (SOD) activities were significantly stimulated. As to gastrointestinal hormones, the secretion of gastrin, somatostatin, and histamine were significantly inhibited, while prostaglandin E2 secretion was significantly stimulated. (425)

The effectiveness of Flavay® in subjects with structural deformations (varicose veins) was tested against a placebo and Diosmin (a semisynthetic flavonoid). In both cases, Flavay® lessened functional problems during impaired venous back-flow. The researchers noted the importance of recognizing these functional problems before the varicose veins are visible. (46)

A double-blind study of 50 subjects with chronic venous insufficiency found taking 150 mg Flavay® daily for one month had a more rapid and lasting effect on reducing peripheral edema (swelling) than 450 mg daily of Diosmin. (47)

A double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 92 subjects with chronic venous insufficiency demonstrated improved venous function at a daily dose of 300 mg of Flavay® for 28 days. 69% of those taking Flavay® reported 50% reduction in clinical parameter scores for pain, paresthesias (burning, numbness, tingling, or prickling), nocturnal cramps and edema (swelling). 75% of those taking Flavay® felt it was effective, compared to 41% of the placebo group. (48)

In a double-blind, controlled trial of 32 subjects who had undergone facial cosmetic surgery, those given Flavay® for ten days had significantly less swelling than the placebo-treated group. (73)

In a randomized, controlled trial of 50 adults who had sustained sports injuries, those treated with Flavay® had significantly less swelling at the injured site over the next ten days than the placebo group. (88)

In a double-blind placebo controlled trial of 20 subjects with hepatic cirrhosis, supplementation with 300 mg daily of Flavay® significantly reduced capillary fragility. (45)

A French trial of 78 subjects with serious venous problems found very favorable results using Flavay®. 75 out of 78 (96%) subjects experienced improvement in circulation. (44)

Administration of Flavay® helped prevent capillary leaking in the brain, increasing the resistance of tight junctions in the arteriolar capillaries. (102)
