Whether you are a professional athlete, a fitness enthusiast or just venturing to complete your first 5km, the muscle soreness and joint pain in the 12- to 48-hour time frame after a vigorous workout can serve as a major frustration. ZinCuflex® is an innovative food supplement with proven benefits for joint health, immunity, energy and vitality. Combining the power of Ginger, Curcumin and vitamin C, ZinCuflex® may help to protect joints and help maintain joint mobility, overall contributing to recovery after working out.
Ginger for Better Health
Ginger is an extract which helps to maintain joint mobility and avoid morning stiffness. The Mozaffari et al. (2016 ) study on 120 patients with osteoarthritis, demonstrated that use of 500mg ginger a day for three months caused a decrease in inflammatory markers compared to the group given a placebo. Altman et al (2001 ) found that among 247 patients with osteoarthritis (OA ) of the knee with moderate to-severe pain, those taking ginger extract for six weeks experienced significant reduction in knee pain on standing, compared with those taking a placebo.
Ginger is filled with immune-boosting benefits, making it a common ingredient in homemade tonics, with the newest trend being a ginger shot. Ginger offers anti-viral, anti-bacterial and antioxidant benefits, so it helps to fight off free radicals, viral and bacterial infections. If that wasn’t enough, ginger has also been shown to have stimulating and tonic properties which may help increase energy and reduce fatigue.
Curcumin - The Golden Spice of Life
Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric. Scientific research indicates that curcumin can be effective in many illnesses due to its ability to switch off inflammation in an unparalleled manner. Benefits to the body are widespread as its effect can benefit your joints, immune system, digestion and brain function. Curcumin contributes to joint health as it helps to protect joints and helps to maintain joint flexibility and helps to control inflammatory responses in the body.
Absorption is Key
While both turmeric and curcumin (the active ingredient in turmeric ) offer substantial benefits, absorption has always been an issue… poor absorption reduces the effectiveness of curcumin. Previously, Black pepper which contains Piperine was shown to be the most effective substance to increase absorption and the overall bioavailability of curcumin. Surprisingly, Khajuria et al (2003 ) found that Gingerols, the active ingredient in ginger were shown to be even more effective than piperine. For the given dose (50 mg/kg ) Gingerol was shown to enhance the bioavailability of curcumin by 43% while Piperine showed the same enhancement by 33%. Using a patented process “NPT501TM”, ZinCuflex® combines curcumin with liquefied ginger to achieve more than 65x better absorption compared to ordinary curcumin, making it even more bioavailable and therefore more effective.
Therese Hyland from Galway was having a lot of trouble with her knee as a result of a new training regime. “The swelling got so bad, that eventually, I couldn’t even go for a walk the next day.” Eager to exercise at full strength, I asked a friend for advice. She recommended Zincuflex. “Delighted that it was a natural product, I started to take it immediately. Wow - It lived up to its reputation… I couldn’t believe how quickly it worked. “The swelling went down and I could go back to the gym knowing that recovery would be easier. I am delighted with the results and regularly recommend them to my friends.” said Therese.
The positive feedback we have been receiving from customers is backed up by research as a study of 200 ZinCuFlex users in Denmark found that 90% reported a significant improvement in joint mobility, with many feeling the difference within 14 days.
