Perluxan™ is a proprietary, standardized supercritical extract of hops cones (Humulus lupulus L.) with multiple mechanisms of action based on alpha acids.
Joint pain, muscle pain, headaches, sprains, strains, or any other instance when you would take an over-the-counter pain-relieving drug.
Studies have pitted Perluxan head-to-head against ibuprofen and found that it is just as effective. For example, in a study published in the Asia Pacific Journal of Clinical Nutrition, people took either Perluxan or ibuprofen, and samples of their blood were tested during the following nine hours. Both substances inhibited harmful COX 2 inflammation to the same degree. But compared to ibuprofen, Perluxan inhibited the action of beneficial COX 1 enzymes to only a slight degree. Researchers concluded that, “Hops extracts may represent a safe alternative to ibuprofen for non-prescription anti-inflammation.”
Another study tested Perluxan for osteoarthritis knee pain among 36 people. One-third took a placebo and the others took either 1 or 2 grams of Perluxan per day. Pain relief occurred within two hours for those taking 2 grams, and on day two for those taking 1 gram. Within 14 days, both dosages delivered considerable pain relief.
Although research has focused on Perluxan for joint pain, people taking the supplement have also reported relief from other types of pain, including sprains, strains, muscle soreness, and headaches. Some reports also indicate that it helps reduce fever, much like ibuprofen.
Well tolerated and absorbed.
