Inflammation is essentially a protective response intended to eliminate the initial cause of cell injury (microbes, toxins). The inflammatory response dilutes, neutralizes and removes the insulting 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).
- The BuchuLife oil found in our natural anti-inflammatory capsules 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 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.
BuchuLife INFLA-ACTIVE capsules were developed in South Africa by Cape Kingdom Nutraceuticals (Pty) Ltd. The benefits of BuchuLife products have been scientifically researched by the Sports Science Institute of the University of Cape Town and by Professor Patrick Bouic, Head of Immunology at Stellenbosch University and Tygerberg Academic Hospital.
Buchu is indigenous to the Western Cape Province of South Africa and forms part of Fynbos, the vegetation type unique to the Cape Floral Kingdom - a World Heritage Site.

What makes BuchuLife products so effective and a cut above the rest?
Also referred to as "nature's biological response modifiers", Bioflavonoids modify the body’s reaction to compounds such as allergens, viruses, and carcinogens. It has been found that the Bioflavonoids found in Buchu products have greater antioxidant effects than Vitamins C, E, Selenium and Zinc, and prevent formation of oxidized cholesterol through their antioxidant effects.
Once known as "Vitamin P" and semi-essential nutrients, Bioflavonoids are naturally occurring plant compounds that give fruit, leaves and flowers their vibrant colours. They are found in a variety of food, particularly citrus fruits such as grapefruit, oranges, lemons, and limes. A very high concentration of a broad spectrum of Bioflavonoids is just one of many unique Buchu benefits.
BuchuLife products are packed with the following bioflavonoids, antioxidants and vitamins which occur naturally in our scientifically formulated Buchu Oil:
|Hesperidin has shown to increase the health of capillaries and connective tissues, reducing bruising, varicose veins, and fragile capillaries. Hesperidin also works synergistically with Vitamin C to maintain the health of collagen - preventing sagging and wrinkling of the skin. Other benefits include an ability to alleviate hay fever and other allergies.
||Quercitin is a powerful antioxidant, natural anti-histamine and anti-inflammatory. Its anti-inflammatory qualities aid in the relief of pain resulting from disorders such as arthritis, while its antihistamine action provides relief from allergic symptoms.
||Diosmin is a vascular-protecting agent. It exhibits anti-inflammatory, free-radical scavenging, and antimutagenic properties and has recently begun to be investigated for other therapeutic purposes, including: cancer, premenstrual syndrome, colitis, and diabetes.
||Rutin treats poor blood circulation, varicose veins, skin bruising as well as high blood pressure. Rutin intensifies the effect of vitamin C in the body and has natural antiviral, anti-inflammatory and anti-allergy properties.
||VITAMIN B GROUP
|Diosphenol is a natural antiseptic with mild diuretic properties. It is widely recognised as an effective antioxidant, combating free-radicals in all parts of the body.
||Vitamin B group found in our Buchu products promotes increased energy, improved or more stable moods, healthier skin, hair and eyes. This group of vitamins is important for proper nervous system and immune system function.
||Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant which keeps your skin, heart, nerves, muscles and red blood cells healthy. It protects your cells against the effects of dangerousfree-radicalsthat cause tissue and cellular damage. Vitamin E also contributes to a healthy circulatory system and aids in proper blood clotting and improved wound healing.
||Vitamin Aimproves eyesight, helps form and maintain healthy looking skin, hair and mucous membranes,promotes formation of strong bones and teeth andguards against bacterial, viral and parasitic infections.
