The First Choice To CounterAct The Negative Effects of Inflammation!
i6-Factor is Formulated To:
• For occasional sore muscles & stiffness deprivation*
• Select anitoxidants to handle oxidative stress*
• Proteolytic enzymes to support natural resolution of the normal inflammatory process*
• General support for handling occasional minor aches and pains*
• Marine botanicals for all over support*
From the dedicated athlete who works out every day, to the occasional sports participant, to the enthusiastic homeowner engaged in spring cleaning, we all expose our bodies to regular or intermittent muscle stress and strain. We are constantly subjecting our muscles to stresses sufficient enough to cause microscopic tears or strain on soft tissue, resulting in inflammation and soreness. These normal physical pressures are temporary, but in the meantime, there can be several days of discomfort and limited movement.
i6-Factor is designed to work with the body’s own mechanisms to resolve occasional inflammation due to stress and strain on muscle tissue. It contains an exclusive combination of proteolytic enzymes, botanicals and select vitamins and minerals designed to naturally support the body’s own processes that function to return tissue to it normal state after a minor injury.
Recommended Usage: take 2 capsules three times a day away from food.
Who Can Benefit From i6-Factor? Anyone an acute injury or chronic unrelenting inflammation or anyone with symptoms of muscle and joint aches and pains.
Is I-6Factro Clinically Effective? Quercetin helps: improve athletic performance, upper respiratory tract infection, anti-inflammatory effects, anti-histamine and anti-allergy effect, anti-carcinogenic properties, cardiovascular protection properties, properties against thrombosis.

Quercetin inhibits IgE, IgG mediated histamine and SRS-A (peptido-leukotriene mediated allergies. It also inhibits biosynthesis of pro-inflammatory arachidonic acid metabolites.[ http://www.chiro.org/nutrition/ABSTRACTS/Quercetin_A_Review.shtml]
Bromelain: taken before surgery can reduce the average number of days for complete disappearance of pain and postsurgery inflammation [G. C. Tassman, J. N. Zafran, and G. M. Zayon, “A double-blind crossover study of a plant proteolytic enzyme in oral surgery,” The Journal of Dental Medicine, vol. 20, pp. 51–54, 1965.] [R. C. L. Howat and G. D. Lewis, “The effect of bromelain therapy on episiotomy wounds—a double blind controlled clinical trial,” Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology of the British Commonwealth, vol. 79, no. 10, pp. 951–953, 1972].
It can act as an anti-inflammatory agent by reducing levels of prostaglandin E2 and thromboxane A2 [Maurer HR. Bromelain: biochemistry, pharmacology and medical use. Cell Mol Life Sci 2001;58:1234-45.], inhibits neutrophil migration in response to IL-8 during inflammation [Fitzhugh DJ, Shan S, Dewhirst MW, et al. Bromelain treatment decreases neutrophil migration to sites of inflammation. Clin Immunol. Jul 2008;128(1):66-74]. and decreases pro-inflammatory chemokine and cytokine secretion [Onken JE, Greer PK, Calingaert B, et al. Bromelain treatment decreases secretion of pro-inflammatory cytokines and chemokines by colon biopsies in vitro. Clin Immunol. Mar 2008;126(3):345-352], [Secor ER, Carson WF, Singh A, et al. Oral Bromelain Attenuates Inflammation in an Ovalbumin-induced Murine Model of Asthma. Evid Based Complement Alternat Med. Mar 2008;5(1):61-69]
Used for treating acute inflammation and sports injuries. [S. Brien, G. Lewith, A. Walker, S. M. Hicks, and D. Middleton, “Bromelain as a treatment for osteoarthritis: a review of clinical studies,” Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, vol. 1, no. 3, pp. 251–257, 2004].
Citrus bioflavonoids has been shown to decrease muscle soreness and joint injuries along with anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. [http://www.naturalnews.com/033649_citrus_bioflavonoids_oxidative_stress.html]
Papain is used for pain and swelling (inflammation) as well as fluid retention following trauma and surgery. [http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/ingredientmono-69-papain.aspx?activeingredientid=69&activeingredientname=papain]
Proteolytic enzymes (aka proteases) have been show to: reduce systemic inflammation, cleanses the blood of debris, breaking down and removes circulating immune complexes, dissolving fibrin in the blood, reducing the risk of clots, boosting the immune system, killing bacteria, viruses, and other invading pathogens. Improved circulation, reduced risk of and response to food and pollen allergies.
Accelerated recovery from sprains, strains, fractures, bruises, contusions, and surgery, faster recovery time from workouts, help with arthritis, sinusitis and asthma.
