Oligomineral and vitamin supplement enriched with herbal active ingredients
FIXX provides a specific and balanced pool of phytotherapeutic active ingredients, which are associated with trace elements and vitamins and carries out an intense anti-inflammatory, immunostimulant and antioxidant activity (recognized in the bibliography).
The Boswellia serrata extract has a specific and positive action on the inflammatory cascade and precisely at the level of 5-lipoxygenase.
The anti-inflammatory activity of the active ingredients present in the Ocimum sanctum is demonstrated: in particular, it has a specific action on cyclooxygenase (COX), both towards COX1 and COX2.
The use of Emblica officinalis has shown an intense antioxidant activity, which is considered to be correlated with the high content of Vitamin C and with the specific activity of some of its components that stimulate the enzymatic activity at the base of the antioxidant system.
Echinacea is one of the most interesting phytotherapeutic products, due to its effect on non-specific defenses, but some studies have also shown effects on the stimulation of specific defenses. In moments of strong physical stress and in conjunction with strong metabolic demands, the requirements of Vitamin C increase strongly, therefore a targeted integration is necessary to cover the increased demands of this vitamin which exerts an essential antioxidant and immunostimulatory activity.
Selenium and vitamin E are two important factors for their ability to contribute to the neutralization of free radicals (ROS), preventing the progression of the inflammatory process.
Beta-carotene is recognized as having a wide antioxidant activity and there is a drop in its blood values during the transition phase.
Zinc and Copper in organic form are two essential constituents for Super-oxydysismutase, one of the two enzymes together with Glutathione Peroxidase (for which Selenium is instead essential) with a “detoxifying” action against free radicals (ROS).
