He has spent his professional life analyzing nutritional information and medical studies with the aim of creating the highest quality and most natural nutraceuticals for user’s maximum health benefits. Here, Jerry speaks about the benefits of Curcumin and 5-Loxin…
One of the ingredients is from the frankincense plant, it’s called 5-Loxin. They actually named it after the pathway that it inhibits in joint discomfort. There are two distinct pathways that cause inflammatory response throughout the body. Like with lung inflammation or skin inflammation and itching in the colon, some of those immune-derived inflammatory responses are a problem for people. The absorbable form of Turmeric (Biocurcumin) and Boswellia (5-Loxin), when combined, inhibit the COX-2 enzyme. This has been proven through studies at Baylor College. Traditionally, that’s how they help joint discomfort.†
There have been a lot of human clinical trials on both of these ingredients: they’re both well-absorbed, they’re both safe, they’re both nontoxic and they’ve been studied many times, head to head with drugs.†
The two herbs we discussed both work differently, complementing each other’s benefits. There are a lot of studies going on currently using the ingredients in this formula, the Bio-Curcumin and 5-Loxin. A number of studies have shown that they can support overall brain health and promote a healthy inflammatory response in the body. It benefits the entire body, because the Bio-Curcumin attacks one type of inflammation, while the 5-Loxin attacks the other type, covering all the inflammation in the body. Because of that, it is so protective and supportive for the brain, for the eyes and for the lungs.†
Now, here’s what some of the clients have to say:
A lady named Flo was asking about some supplements for different conditions, for herself and some other people in her family. She emailed me that she had a Baker’s cyst. Would anything help her Baker’s cyst? I told her, “Not the supplements we already gave you, they’re for other conditions but I do think the Bio-Curcumin may help you.” I told her to take two capsules twice a day, two at breakfast and two with dinner. Now, a Baker’s cyst is this fluid deposit on the back of the knee. It’s because the patella (the joint of the knee) was damaged and fluid is leaking out. Normally, what the doctor does with that is drain it with a needle, but it tends to come back. She asked me, “Is there anything that would help that?” Now, I’ve never seen a study with any supplement on Baker’s cysts, but I told her there’s a chance that because the Bio-Curcumin 5-Loxin decreases inflammation in the knee, you’re not going to get that buildup of fluids. Here’s what she writes, a couple of weeks later: “I just wanted you to know that I’ve been using your product and my Baker’s cyst doesn’t bother me anymore. You said below it may help me. The back of my knee used to feel swollen, but not anymore. In less than a month, your product did wonders for me.” There you go: Baker’s cyst. That’s pretty darn dramatic.†
"There have been a lot of human clinical trials on both of these ingredients; they’re both well-absorbed and they’re both safe."
Here’s Sorjean, very nice lady. I’ve never met her, but we’ve been going back and forth through my email. By the way, if you want to email me, it’s firstname.lastname@example.org. I probably get 30 emails a day from clients asking questions. On June 4th, she says, “I emailed you regarding severe pain that I had from a herniated disk in my neck. I followed your recommendations, and I am pain-free as of now. I still continue to take the Bio-Curcumin 5-Loxin and the hyaluronic acid with devil’s claw.” She goes on to thank me.
Here’s another one: “Dear Mr. Hickey. Thanks for responding personally. I listen almost every morning to your program. I was referring to Bio-Curcumin 5-Loxin which improved my pain and movements in my trigger fingers. The improvement made me believe in the integrity of your products and advice.” Trigger finger is inflammation of the tendon in your finger and it makes the finger bend like you’re pulling a trigger.
This is Bea: “One month ago I sent you an email regarding my mom, who is 80 years old and a Type 1 diabetic. She was suffering from costochondritis…,” it’s a severe inflammation of the cartilage and connective tissue, “and she was in severe pain. You responded and said to take the following: Bio-Curcumin 5-Loxin two capsules twice a day with meals, breakfast and dinner. Thank you.” And…okay, where does she say it now? “Thanks to you and the above, her condition has greatly improved. I also gave her the hyaluronic acid with devil’s claw.”
Here’s another: “I have a herniated disk, sciatica and degenerative osteoarthritis.” This person has a real pain from the spine that’s radiating out and going down the nerves of her legs. Her name is Joan, she’s in Astoria. Here’s what else she writes. “I have had numerous epidural injections, which barely gave me any relief from the pain.” Now, an epidural, folks, is an injection into the spine. “I still have to take pain prescriptions. I started on the Bio-Curcumin 5-Loxin two daily, and have less pain, better range of motion and better strength. I was amazed.”
I’ll read you one more: “Dear Mr. Hickey. Please note that I have had chronic neck and shoulder pain for months. I used ibuprofen, which gave me some relief, until it wore off.” Folks, that’s because ibuprofen only lasts about four hours, then you have to take it again. This is Brian in New York City, by the way. “I decided to use your Bio-Curcumin 5-Loxin exclusively. After one week the pain vanished and never returned. I use the Bio-Curcumin 5-Loxin now just as a preventative. Thank you for all your great work.”
