Ortho Molecular InflammaCORE Vanilla Chai - 14 servings

Ortho Molecular InflammaCORE Vanilla Chai - 14 servings

Ortho Molecular's InflammaCORE is an advanced nutritional formula built to address immune challenges, maintain normal inflammatory balance and strengthen gastrointestinal barrier function.

InflammaCORE is an all-natural, fructose-free formula featuring 19 g of easy-to-digest brown rice protein per serving and soothing, flax-based fiber. In addition, InflammaCORE provides high amounts of L-glutamine and glycine, amino acids crucial for intestinal reinforcement and mucosal cell regeneration. InflammaCORE is available in delicious vanilla chai, chocolate mint, and strawberry flavors.

Turmeric (Curcumin): Curcumin is the active compound in turmeric, an orangecolored spice used for thousands of years in cooking and medicine. Curcumin has been shown to have strong NFkB-modulating properties and plays a crucial role in maintaining normal inflammatory balance. Studies have shown that curcumin specifically maintains normal inflammatory balance in the most significant GI challenges. Curcumin has been found to both promote GI mucosal health and help reduce stomach lining discomfort. It provides antioxidant protection in the cardiovascular system. Curcumin has also been shown to improve mood imbalances and adrenal fatigue by supporting a normal immune response, reducing oxidative stress and intestinal permeability.

Green Tea Extract (EGCg): Green tea, used for centuries as a health tonic, is a potent antioxidant and is effective for maintaining normal inflammatory balance. Its most researched active component, EGCg, has been repeatedly shown to protect against free radical damage and balance markers of inflammation. EGCg has been found to block NFkB activity and supports cardiovascular health by interfering with free radical generation in macrophages. In studies, green tea has been shown to reduce histamine-producing cells and maintain normal inflammatory balance. It has also been shown to inhibit key enzyme pathways involved in inflammation, which play a key role in joint health.

Arabinogalactan: Larch arabinogalactan is a fermentable polysaccharide fiber from the larch tree that promotes optimal immune health by supporting the growth of beneficial gut flora and strengthening the activity of NK cells. It has been found to minimize ammonia synthesis and absorption, enhance production of short-chain fatty acids and increase the population of beneficial gut microflora. In one placebo-controlled, doubleblind, randomized trial, arabinogalactan was found to boost immune activity and support upper respiratory health.

Skullcap Root Extract: This popular Chinese botanical has been shown to maintain normal inflammatory balance and support cardiovascular health. Skullcap possesses potent antioxidant properties. Research has shown it attenuates NFkB and inhibits COX-2 expression. It also supports healthy respiratory function by protecting airways and protecting mitochondrial function.

Quercetin: A flavonoid found in a variety of botanicals, vegetables and fruits, quercetin is a potent antioxidant that inhibits inducible ICAM-1 expression, an important pathway for maintaining normal inflammatory balance. It has also been shown to enhance epithelial barrier function in the intestines by stabilizing mast cells through the release of cell-protective factors. In addition, quercetin has been shown to promote the balanced release of inflammatory mediators from mast cells.

Glutamine and Glycine: Amino acids L-glutamine and glycine are essential for healthy gut mucosa and normal tissue repair. Numerous studies have shown these amino acids to be soothing to the GI lining. The amino acid L-glutamine have been associated with better immune response, stronger intestinal wall lining and higher antioxidant capacity. Recent research also highlights the synergistic role between these amino acids and a healthy balance of probiotic bacteria in the GI tract.

Vitamin D: One of the key functions of vitamin D is its ability to tighten gap junctions in the intestinal lining to create a strong barrier that protects the body from foreign substances. Recent research suggests that improving vitamin D status significantly affects the expression of genetic pathways linked to immune activity. Vitamin D up-regulates specific genes that increase cellular production of natural compounds that protect us against pathogens. Higher blood levels of vitamin D have been shown to enhance immune function and soothe tissues of the GI tract.
