do for your body?
Flavay® readily crosses the blood-brain barrier where it strengthens collagen in your brain’s vascular walls and capillaries, increases circulation and nutrient delivery, provides antioxidant protection and Flavay® helps modulate nitric oxide to lower stress hormones, lower oxidative stress and protect neurotransmitters.
Flavay® is proven to regulate the production of nitric oxide in endothelial blood cells. Nitric oxide is an important free-radical which your brain uses as a neurotransmitter to control communication among brain cells and is deeply involved in concentration, learning and memory.
Flavay® works to both stimulate normal synthesis and inhibit overproduction of nitric oxide. All higher brain functions require a well-balanced release of nitric oxide in the brain. Flavay's® support and protection of nitric oxide activity is important to brain function because a breakdown in nitric-oxide-based communication leads to neurological damage and many diseases.
Flavay® reduces production of stress hormones and interference with neurotransmitters as it modulates nitric oxide in brain cells. Flavay’s® protection of brain cells is significant as published studies have established a direct connection between free-radical damage and cognitive impairment. A study by a psychologist in Tulsa, Oklahoma who specializes in treating attention deficit disorder found striking benefits in Flavay®. The researchers found that it worked just as well as the commonly prescribed stimulant medications on 30 children and adults diagnosed with ADD. Many of the subjects also had other positive effects.

Flavay® helps in various ways to normalize immune function at the
cellular level. Flavay® can restore cytokine imbalances and thereby normalize white blood cell activity—normalizing immune function. Like your brain relies upon messengers known as “neurotransmitters,” your immune system relies upon “immunotransmitters” called cytokines. When your immune system’s cytokines activate the macrophages (important white blood cells capable of gobbling up invading viruses and bacteria), the macrophages produce large amounts of nitric oxide free-radicals in the course of battle. But when overproduced, nitric oxide free-radicals turn on the host macrophages. Studies show how Flavay® protects macrophages by restoring cytokine imbalances, helping modulate nitric oxide production so that macrophage white blood cells were unharmed and allowed to continue their disease-fighting activity.
Also, by recycling the activity of vitamins
C and E (essential for a healthy immune response), Flavay®
helps your body to maintain its natural antioxidant defenses, giving your
body more ammunition to fight infection and inflammation. (10,14)
Flavay® strengthens collagen in vascular walls and micro-capillaries, making your vessels stronger and more elastic, clinically proven to improve capillary resistance and reduce leakage and inflammation. (1-10,77,79,87)
Flavay® selectively binds to the connective tissue of your joints,
preventing inflammation and lessening pain. (1-3,8,19,25,35)
Flavay® helps control release and synthesis of histamine, a key
factor in inflammation. The histamine action of Flavay® is found to be through inhibiting the activity of the enzyme histidine decarboxylase. German studies found Flavay® lowers the anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic activity of histamine with as much as 86 percent inhibition of histidine decarboxylase. (1-10,77,79,87)
“[A] method for preventing and fighting the harmful biological effects of free radicals... namely... inflammation... [and] collagen degradation”
—U.S. Patent No. 4,698,360 (1987).
Licensed and sold for vascular health in France, Flavay® strengthens collagen in vascular walls and micro-capillaries, making your
vessels stronger and more elastic, proven to improve capillary resistance and reduce leakage and inflammation.
Italian scientists from the University of Florence studied the effect
of Flavay® on venous congestion (edema) in the legs. The study involved
40 subjects consisting of 13 men and 27 women between the ages of 34 and
74. The subjects were randomly divided into two groups. One group received
a placebo and the other group received 300 mg of Flavay® daily for
All taking the Flavay® had relief from at least some of
the symptoms. After 30 days, the pain was totally relieved in in 38 percent
of those taking Flavay®, the swelling disappeared in 26 percent
(the circumference of the legs was measured above the ankle), and 11 percent
experienced a decrease in the feeling of heaviness in their lower limbs.
After 60 days, the pain was totally relieved in 67 percent of those taking
Flavay®, the swelling disappeared in 63 percent, and the decrease
in heaviness jumped to 33 percent. (3,38-54)
Flavay® has been successfully used for controlling hay fever and
allergies for many decades. Flavay® helps control release and synthesis of histamine, a key
factor in inflammation. The histamine action of Flavay® is found to be through inhibiting the activity of the enzyme histidine decarboxylase. German studies found Flavay® may lower the antiinflammatory and anti-allergic activity of histamine with as much as 86 percent inhibition of histidine decarboxylase. (1-10,77,79,87)
Flavay® can help minimize damage and accelerate recovery time from strenuous workouts and sports-related activities.
Soccer players in two countries and in two studies (France and Australia) found the players who consumed Flavay® for ten days following their injuries experienced significantly less swelling than those who did not, and the swelling completely disappeared in some who were taking Flavay®.
Flavay®'s action is synergistic for athletes. It protects your body by helping neutralize the naturally-occurring pro-oxidative effects of strenuous workouts and strengthens your body's collagen—a major component of muscles, tendons, cartilage, ligaments and bones.
Other research, including double-blind studies conducted in France, shows Flavay® can reduce postoperative inflammation. (2,3,4,80,88)
Research shows that Flavay Plus® can lower stress-induced hormone (cortisol) production
by 30 percent. (117)
Flavay® aids in production of nitric oxide which your brain uses as a neuro-transmitter to control communication between brain cells and is thereby essential in concentration, learning and memory and in coordinating activity between your brain and immune cells. Also, Flavay Plus® also increases communication between cells in your brain by increasing the number of membrane receptor sites for receiving messages. It modulates the fluidity of cell membranes which are essential to your brain cells' ability to send and receive chemical communication. (1-3,14,15,202-204)
Flavay® reduces production of stress hormones and interference with neurotransmitters as it modulates nitric oxide in brain cells. Flavay’s® protection of brain cells is significant as published studies have established a direct connection between free-radical damage and cognitive impairment. (10,14,103)
Placebo-controlled and double-blind trials prove that young university students experience significantly less stress from tests, stay more clear-headed and composed, and keep a more stable mood when taking Flavay Plus®. (190-191)
Flavay® can have a dramatic, visible effect on your skin. Flavay® protects against the breakdown of
skin collagen, a process that produces visible signs of aging. The nutrients in Flavay® can be considered as a ‘collagen vitamins’ because it partakes in the biosynthesis of collagen and prevent its destruction. Laboratory tests have demonstrated Flavay’s® ability to reduce degradation of elastin fibers by up to 70 percent.
Flavay® partakes in the bio-synthesis of collagen and can prevent its destruction.
Visible signs of weak collagen are wrinkles and sagging skin.
Flavay® can reactivate damaged collagen and elastin,
and strengthen and rebuild collagen. By preserving your body's natural
collagen proteins, Flavay® can enhance the elasticity of your skin, helping
to offset visible signs of premature aging. (18,19,25,33)
Flavay® neutralizes the free radical reactions that are responsible
for the progressive deterioration of your biological systems, including your
brain. Flavay® is fully bioavailable and its high free radical scavenging effect
is believed to be associated with a longer, healthier, life with an increased
functional life span. (3,18,19,25,33)
Licensed and sold for vascular and eye health in France, the vascular protective activity of Flavay®
has been established by significant studies. In clinical trials of patients with various types
of retinal diseases, including macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy,
retinitis pigmentosa, and hemorrhagic and hypertensive retinopathy, all
persons showed significant improvement.
Research also shows Flavay®
enhances visual adaptation of your eye to different light environments.
Flavay® is shown to protect the health of your retina. (2,3)
Licensed and sold for vascular health in France for more than 65 years, the vascular protective activity of Flavay® has been established by many significant studies
Clinical trials show Flavay® strengthens the essential constituents of vascular walls (collagen and elastin) and thereby improves strength and tone of veins, arteries, capillaries, circulation, lymph vessels, lymph nodes, and lymphoid tissues. Shown to increase capillary resistance, decrease capillary permeability, and increase rate of lymph flow. (3,44-48) More →
Flavay® actually strengthens collagen in vascular walls and capillaries (the smallest vessels), making the vessels stronger and more elastic. Flavay® alters the membrane receptor conformation of vascular walls, reducing the damaging effects of the destructive enzymes elastase, collagenase and hyaluronidase, by preventing them from attaching to and degrading vascular walls. Flavay® further prevents destruction of vascular walls by preventing the attachment to membranes of histamine and hyaluronidase, both of which can decrease the strength of vessel walls. Thus, in addition to preventing the root causes of vessel occlusion, Flavay® also strengthens vessels, thereby reducing the risk of a rupture or hemorrhage, and helping to both prevent and relieve vascular fragility.
Flavay® reduces platelet aggregation as it aids in production of endothelial nitric
oxide which helps to dilate blood vessels and causes your blood platelets return to their normal smooth condition. (10,38-54,52,53,103,202)
Flavay® has withstood the test of time. After more than
65 years of human use, no adverse effects have been
observed. Furthermore, intensive biological, toxicological,
pharmacological and analytical research was conducted
for the purpose of registration as a medicine in France and
other countries in Europe. Flavay® was clinically tested,
in particular for all sorts of symptoms related to venolymphatic
insufficiencies. The spin-off is a goldmine of data.
The rigorous testing to meet the standards required by the
health ministries of France, Germany, and other European countries demonstrates that Flavay® is fully bioavailable, nontoxic, nonallergenic, noncarcinogenic, nonmutagenic,
will not cause birth defects and completely safe. (1,90-94)
