Fight Inflammation and Speed Recovery!
CEFLAXYNE® by Eric Favre Labs is a unique combination of synergistic natural
ingredients, highly dosed, carefully selected to act effectively against
all types of inflammatory conditions: ORL, digestion, cerebral, joints,
Recognized Properties of the Main Ingredients:
• Turmeric, Curcuma Longa
Turmeric is a plant that is native to Southeast Asia. Turmeric has been used in
Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years.
It is traditionally used to treat digestive disorders, but is also known to fight against inflammation.
The main component of turmeric rhizome is curcumin. It has a potent anti-inflammatory activity.
It is particularly used in the treatment of chronic inflammation such as arthritis.
Several studies have shown that the effects of turmeric are comparable to ibuprofen in
the treatment of osteoarthritis.
In addition, turmeric proves as effective as other anti-inflammatory drugs in the
treatment of chronic inflammation. Turmeric acts directly on inflammatory mediators.
Indeed, curcumin acts by inhibiting the enzymes responsible for the formation of lipid mediators.
Curcumin, acting on cyclooxygenase-2 (COX2) and 5-lipoxygenase, inhibits the
formation of prostaglandins and leukotrienes.
Curcumin also has an inhibitory effect on cyclooxygenase-1 (COX1), but with a
preference for COX2. Side effects are rare.
• Feverfew, Tanacetum Parthenium
Feverfew is a plant spread throughout Europe.
The World Health Organization recognizes its efficacy in rapidly treating migraine headaches.
Parthenolide is the main constituent of feverfew.
It acts by stabilizing the phenomena of vasodilatation and vasoconstriction for acting on migraines,
but also on inflammation.
• Harpagophytum, Harpagophytum Procumbens
Harpagophytum is also known as Devil’s Claw in reference to its woody fruits.
Since the early twentieth century, harpagophytum has been used for its
anti- inflammatory and analgesic effects.
Harpagophytum is renowned for treating chronic inflammation of the joints,
but several studies have also demonstrated its effectiveness in acute inflammation.
Harpagophytum prevents the synthesis of pro-inflammatory prostaglandins.
Indeed, it inhibits COX2 enzyme responsible for the synthesis of prostaglandins.
Thus harpagophytum is effective for treating inflammation and pain.
• White Willow, Salix Alba
White willow is a tree that colonizes the banks of rivers and streams.
The properties of white willow bark are well known in several continents.
Asian white willow was used for its antipyretic and analgesic properties.
In Greece it was used for fever and pain.
In greater Europe, white will was known to stop vomiting, whilst in America it was
used as a painkiller and antipyretic.
Salicin was isolated from white willow in 1828. It is from this active component that
white willow draws its analgesic and antipyretic properties.
Salicin is known to act more slowly than a conventional anti-inflammatory,
but the plant does not cause side effects.
In Germany, white willow is used in pediatrics to bring down the fever.
Studies on white willow bark show that it is as effective as an anti-inflammatory remedy
for the treatment of pain.
Salicin which is the precursor of aspirin acts on the cyclo-oxygenase.
By inhibiting these enzymes, it inhibits the synthesis of prostaglandins.
Salicin inhibits both enzymes in a reversible way. Studies and clinical experience
also show that salicin acts in the same way as aspirin but without developing side effects.
Bromelain is a proteolytic enzyme present in pineapple.
It has the property of cutting the peptide bonds of proteins.
In Asia and South America, bromelain is known to possess anti-inflammatory, anti-thrombotic
and fibrinolytic properties.
The European German Commission recognizes the use of bromelain in the treatment of
oedema following surgery or trauma. It is effective in relieving inflammation and accelerating the healing
The full action of bromelain, however, is more complex:
it acts by inhibiting proinflammatory cytokines. Thus, bromelain prevents the recruitment of white
blood cells in the inflammatory focus, so bromelain is very effective against oedema.
Cytokines also act by stimulating the synthesis of lipid mediators which
maintain the inflammation. Bromelain by its action on cytokines reduces the inflammatory reaction.
• Ginger, Zingiber Officinalis
Ginger or zingiber officinale is cultivated in most tropical countries.
The essential constituent of ginger is gingerol.
Ginger is used in the formulation of many oriental medicines.
The European Commission recognizes the anti-emetic properties of ginger.
In fact, it has a positive effect on digestion by stimulating the gastric juices.
In-depth studies have demonstrated the powerful anti-inflammatory effect of ginger.
Ginger prevents the synthesis of lipid mediators of inflammation by inhibiting enzymes.
5-lipoxygenase and COX2 are the main targets of ginger. COX1 is also affected by ginger
but in a less specific way.
By acting on these enzymes, ginger inhibits the formation of prostaglandins and leukotrienes.
Thus, inflammation is considerably reduced.
• Black Pepper, Piper Nigrum
Piperine is a main constituent of black pepper.
All the different parts of the plant contain piperine in variable proportions, depending on the maturity of the plant.
Black pepper is commonly used in Ayurvedic medicine especially in combination with turmeric.
This association stems from the fact that piperine increases the bioavailability of curcumin in humans.
Many studies show that this combination can increase the absorption of curcumin by 20%.
In addition, researchers have also found that this association reinforces the effects of turmeric.
Piperine acts directly on the intestine by inhibiting the enzymes responsible for the elimination of active substances.
