What do 5-LOX and COX-2 have to do with pain?
Scientific research has defined naturally occurring enzymes known as 5-Lipoxygenase (5-LOX) and Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) which are implicated in many inflammatory conditions. Unlike its more benign and protective sister COX-1, the harmful and possibly painful COX- 2 enzyme is present only during periods of inflammation. 5-LOX and COX-2 form the destructive duo responsible for the production of the pro-inflammatory type of mediators. These mediators are called eicocasonoids; specifically prostaglandins PGE-2 and leukotrienes.
Those suffering with pain have used non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) that are available over the counter. These medications inhibit the formation of the COX enzymes COX 1 and COX 2. The problem is that it blocks helpful COX-1 enzymes. The COX-1 enzyme is a protector of stomach lining. Long term inhibition of this vital COX-1 enzyme by overuse of these drugs has caused many gastric problems, including bleeding ulcers.
These plants have been used for generations by the peoples of various countries. Over time, researchers have discovered natural compounds in different plant sources that can significantly support the body’s response to inflammatory conditions and reduce some of these undesirable enzymes.
