Information about Flavocoxid

Flavocoxid is a medical food consisting of plant derived flavonoids which have antiinflammatory activity and are used to treat chronic osteoarthritis.

Liver safety of Flavocoxid

Flavocoxid has been linked to minor elevations in serum enzyme levels during therapy and to rare instances of clinically apparent liver injury.

Mechanism of action of Flavocoxid

Flavocoxid (flay" voe kox' id) is a proprietary blend of purified plant derived bioflavonoids including baicalin and catechins. Flavocoxid inhibits cyclooxygenases (both Cox-1 and Cox-2) as well as lipoxygenases (5-Lox) in vitro and in animal models, which may account for its antiinflammatory and antioxidant activity. Flavocoxid inhibits the conversion of arachidonic acid to reactive prostaglandins and reduces the levels of these inflammatory mediators in synovial fluid.
