Buchulife - Joint Health Capsules
Buchulife Joint Health targets pain and inflammation. This natural product with indigenous buchu oil supports healthy joints and connective tissue. It promotes a healthy heart and cardiovascular function. It furthermore promotes and optimises exercise recovery and overall well-being.
Buchu is unique to the Fynbos biosphere in the Western Cape, South Africa. This plant has been used for its healing purposes for over three hundred years. Its medicinal value has now been proven scientifically.
The plant is packed with bioflavonoids and vitamins such as quercetin, rutin, hesperidin, diosmin as well as diosphenol and vitamins A, B and E.
Inflammation is essentially a protective response intended to eliminate the initial cause of cell injury (microbes, toxins). The inflammatory response dilutes, neutralises and removes the harmful agent and sets into motion the process of tissue repair.
This process can be categorised as either acute or chronic depending on the time frame and the immune cells involved. Acute inflammation is relatively short in duration (minutes or days) and is characterised by the presence of fluid and predominantly neutrophils. Chronic inflammation on the other hand is characterised by an accumulation of lymphocytes and monocytes and is associated with vascular proliferation and fibrosis (loss of mobility and deformed joints).
Buchu oil used in Buchulife products targets pain and inflammation in several ways:
- It is a potent inhibitor of the oxidative burst, inhibiting this response by 67% at a 1:400 dilution. As the oil is diluted out, so the inhibition decreases but is still present at 24% at a 1:3200 dilution.
- BuchuLife oil inhibits the release of I16 when the cells are stimulated. A 1:400 dilution of the oil inhibits the process by as much as 56% of total release. Once again, as the oil is diluted so is the inhibition (14% of the total at 1:3200 dilution of oil).
- BuchuLife oil extract has NO significant inhibitory effects on the expression of CD11b/CD18 at the surface of neutrophils and monocytes. This implies that the cells can still become “sticky” and migrate through the blood vessel wall to the sites where they are required.
