TNF-α Boost Ingredients

The TNF-α SNP is supported by ingredients that specifically help regulate TNF-α levels, support a healthy inflammatory response and help fight the increased production of free radicals caused by high levels of TNF-α and aging.

Polyphenols from Green Tea, Grape Seed and Pomegranate Extracts

  • Increased polyphenol consumption supports overall health and healthy aging.
  • Green Tea polyphenols reduces the expression of TNF-α as shown in both in vitro studies and animal studies.62,63,64,65,66,67
  • Green tea extract supplementation has been shown to reduce TNF-α levels in humans.68
  • Green tea and grape seed polyphenols have been shown to modulate inflammatory response in humans.69
  • Polyphenols in pomegranate support modulation of inflammatory cell signaling by suppressing TNF-α induction of various inflammatory proteins.70
  • Polyphenol compounds in grape seed extract, known as proanthocyanidins or OPCs, help reduce the expression of the vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 gene (VACM-1),71 which plays a critical role in healthy inflammatory responses. VACM-1 is induced by TNF-α.

Milk Thistle Extract (Silymarin)

  • Silymarin helps reduce TNF-α induced activation of NF-kB. NF-kB is a nuclear transcription factor which regulates the expression of various genes involved in the inflammatory response.72
  • Silymarin helps protect against TNF-α induced production of reactive oxygen species and lipid peroxidation.72
  • Animal studies have shown Silymarin supports the inhibition of TNF-α gene expression.73
