Lower Cortisol Levels
Relieve Stress and Improve Mental Performance

Post Date: August 8, 2019
Chart shows Flavay Plus significantly inhibits ACTH and cortisol levels in response to exercise. (Mental and physical stress result in the same physiological responses.)

The good news is that cortisol levels can be significantly reduced, in the young and old.

Cortisol is a double-edged sword. We need it to adapt to stress but when levels remain too high, cortisol causes brain fog and suppresses the immune system. Over the long term, elevated cortisol levels lead to serious health problems.

Cortisol affects mood and behavior and disrupts memory and recall. Research shows cortisol has significant interactions with the neurotransmitters, neuropeptides, and brain circuits that are associated with depressive symptoms. (R2)


Safely Manage Autoimmune Conditions by Strengthening Your Immune System

Post Date: July 17, 2019
Messengers of the Immune System: Nitric Oxide, Cytokines and Histamine. Graphic shows chemical cross-talk between these chemical messengers with various white blood cells, endothelial cells (cells in vessel walls) and fibroblast cells (cells in connective tissue). Nitric oxide regulates immune responses and mast cell activation and every aspect of inflammation. So tight control of these chemical messengers is essential for a healthy immune system.

Autoimmune conditions are extremely painful and difficult to treat. The body turns on itself, and attacks its own tissues. Every organ system in the human body is vulnerable to autoimmune diseases; chronic fatigue, arthritis and lupus are common examples. The US National Institutes of Health estimates that more than 100 human diseases have a major autoimmune component, and new diseases continue to be added to the list.

All autoimmune diseases share a common element—an imbalance in the immune system which results in inflammation. ()

Autoimmune diseases result in a flood of inflammation that destroys tissues in the target organs first, and then increases throughout the whole body, leading to damage in other areas of the body.

Studies show Flavay® strengthens and improves immune system function by restoring nitric oxide and cytokine imbalances, and in lowering elevated histamine.

When endothelial dysfunctions, the endothelial cells produce superoxide instead of nitric oxide. Blood flow decreases, muscles surrounding vessels constrict, platelets activate (sticky)

Few people realize the critical connection between decreased blood flow to the brain and cognitive decline. Researchers claim vascular cognitive impairment (VCI) is "poised to become the silent epidemic of the 21st century." (472)

"Vascular dementia may be the most common form of dementia."
- J Neurol Sci. 2002;203-204:7–10 (472)

The good news is you can fight back. Research shows improving blood flow to your brain can prevent or reverse deterioration that causes vascular cognitive impairment.

Safe, Effective Non-Drug Alternative for ADD & ADHD

Studies show Flavay Plus® enables your brain cells to metabolize glucose and to release and bind with neurotransmitters— all of which is important to learning, memory and other cognitive functions. (127)

Clinical trials show maintaining brain levels of phosphatidylserine in Flavay Plus® is associated to normal and efficient signal transduction processes, efficient glucose metabolism and healthy cognitive and mental functions. (291,336,337)

Guarding Against Senile Plaque Formation

Post Date: February 20, 2018

Flavay® has demonstrated remarkable success in blocking the formation of senile plaques that severely damage the brains of those with dementia. (404)

Our brains generate an enormous amount of free radicals as a part of daily functioning. Scientists believe that after months and years, these free radicals contribute to the impairment of healthy brain functioning associated to aging.

Studies show Flavay® not only improves blood circulation by strengthening capillaries, arteries, and veins, but also prevents the formation of senile plaques that can severely damage the brains of those with dementia. (404)


Strengthen Your Immune System

A strong immune system is the cornerstone of good health as it protects your body against disease. There are several important ways Flavay® can invigorate your immune system.

Flavay® protects macrophages (a type of white blood cell) from oxidative damage.

Antioxidants work as a network (not independently) inside the cells and human clinical studies show taking Flavay® significantly increases total intracellular serum antioxidant activity. (10,33,370)


NSAIDs Destroy the Gut: How?

leaky gut syndrome

The "anti-inflammation" drugs are shown to cause inflammation in the intestines, and often contribute to the general ill-health of arthritic patients. (460)

Nearly 75% of patients on long-term use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) have inflammation in their intestines. (460)

Long-term use of over-the-counter NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) damages the lining of the GI tract, making it more permeable (Leaky Gut Syndrome). (460,462)

A study found long-term use of NSAIDs can induce gluten sensitivity. (461)


Improve Brain Circulation and How it Helps Cognitive Function

Post Date: July 17, 2018

The good news is that brain cells become more active when blood flow increases. (14,231,339,455)

Poor brain circulation causes poor cognitive function (brain fog), fatigue, anxiety and even depression.

Decreased blood flow to the brain plays a major role in dementia, Alzheimer's and other brain disorders. When the brain becomes starved for oxygen and fuel, the result is low-grade "suffocation." (455)

The good news is that brain cells become more active when blood flow increases. (14,231,339,455)


What is Nitric Oxide? What Does it Do?

Post Date: June 20, 2018

Nitric oxide turns genes on-and-off throughout the body.

An imbalance in nitric oxide affects us in many ways and loss of nitric oxide function is one of the earliest indicators of disease. (203,204,446)


How Free Radicals Accelerate Aging and Disease

Post Date: May 9, 2018

Every day about 10,000 free radicals attack each cell in our body—and they damage anything and everything in the human cell.

Oxidative destruction is implicated in aging and degenerative diseases including cardiovascular, congestive failure, cataracts, macular degeneration, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, Alzheimer's and some liver and kidney diseases. (7,14,346-351,355,356)


Protect Your Vision Against Age- and Tech-Related Macular Degeneration and Cataracts

Post Date: April 17, 2018

Our eyes are adversely affected by continuous exposure to electronic oxidation caused by TVs, computers, laptops, smart phones and tablets, and fluorescent and LED lighting.

Oxidative damage is responsible for macular degeneration, glaucoma, and retinal degenerative diseases which can eventually cause serious vision loss and blindness. (257-259,299)

Flavay® helps prevent and slows progression of macular degeneration.


Boost Your Nitric Oxide Levels With Arginine, Right? Wrong!

When endothelial dysfunctions, the endothelial cells produce superoxide instead of nitric oxide. Blood flow decreases, muscles surrounding vessels constrict, platelets activate (sticky)

You've likely heard about nitric oxide, the molecule that improves blood flow, energy levels, brain-speed and memory.

The most common advice is to take l-arginine to boost nitric oxide. But the problem is that taking too much arginine actually impairs nitric oxide production. Researchers call this the "Arginine Paradox." What's the problem?


You Can Protect Brain Cells Against Dementia

Flavay® protects memory by modulating 13 harmful proteins in brain cells linked to Alzheimer's and dementia. (385)

The brain generates a tremendous amount of free radicals as a part of its daily functioning. Research shows that over the course of months and years, free radicals contribute to the impairment of healthy brain activity that occurs with aging.

Flavay® has demonstrated remarkable success in blocking the formation of senile plaques that severely damage the brains of those with dementia.


Why Avoid NSAIDs

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.

NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) work by blocking COX-1 and COX-2. The problem is, our bodies need the two enzymes, COX-1 and COX-2, to function correctly.

When COX-1 is blocked, the side effects are ulcers and gastrointestinal bleeding (and kidney damage) because our stomachs need the COX-1 enzyme.

Our vessels need COX-2 to protect against atherosclerosis (artery hardening), narrowing and clogging. Most COX-2 inhibitors have been removed from the market. The one that remains (Celebrex) has a black box warning that it carries a risk of heart attack and stroke.

Flavay® is a better and safe approach.
