Flavay® can have a dramatic, visible effect on your skin. The nutrients in Flavay® can be considered as 'collagen vitamins' because they partake in the biosynthesis of collagen and prevent its destruction. (3,8,18,19)
Flavay® strengthens collagen in vessel walls and capillaries— resulting in radiant and more youthful skin. Laboratory tests have demonstrated Flavay’s® ability to reduce degradation of elastin fibers by up to 70 percent. (18,19)
Through synergistic action with vitamin C, Flavay® strengthens and rebuilds the bodys natural collagen proteins and has the remarkable ability to reactivate damaged collagen and elastin. Research has demonstrated that Flavay® binds to collagen fibers and realigns them to a more youthful, undamaged form. (The same research also established that common bioflavonoids are completely inactive in this respect.) Flavay® helps prevent the undesirable cross-linking between amino acids that ages skin like leather while improving the beneficial cross-linking between the amino acids of the fibers that give skin its flexibility and strength. (18,19)
Flavay’s® ability to reactivate damaged collagen and elastin has great implications for all of your bodys organs. Collagen is required for the normal functioning of the joints, healthy cartilage and bones, smooth gliding surfaces, synovial fluid, normal joint spaces and normal soft tissues surrounding the joints. Collagen is the building block of connective tissue, veins, arteries, ligaments and tendons, and every tissue and organ. (3,8,10)
Improved circulation is another reason that Flavay® is an important part of optimally nourishing your skin. Over 60 years of scientific and clinical research establishes that Flavay® actually strengthens collagen in vascular walls and capillaries (the smallest vessels), by making the vessels stronger and more elastic. As we age, the tiny capillaries begin to break down, resulting in diminished blood flow. Fortifying these tiny blood vessels will improve circulation throughout the body, including the skin, delivering blood and nutrients to your skin. Improved circulation results in well-nourished, healthy skin—which is radiant and more youthful. (56,75)
Flavay® has been licensed and sold in France for treating edema and inflammations since 1950. Puffiness of the eyes and an overall bloated look and feel are examples of edema. It involves the leakage of blood serum into surrounding tissues and Flavay® has shown that it can reduce this leakage by strengthening capillary walls. (19,25,81)
One of the very first benefits observed and studied by the inventor of Flavay®, Dr. Jack Masquelier, in as early as 1947, was its anti-inflammatory effect. His and others' research demonstrated that Flavay® inhibits the release and synthesis of histamine (which produces accelerated blood flow, dilates capillaries and increases their permeability, thereby leaking plasma into surrounding tissue), a key factor in the promotion of inflammation. Numerous studies demonstrate the anti-histamine action of Flavay® is obtained through inhibiting the activity of the enzyme histidine decarboxylase. Research shows that Flavay® may lower the production of histamine with as much as 86 percent inhibition of histidine decarboxylase. Inflammatory reactions are not limited to edema and other problems typically associated to vascular diseases; the factors that cause inflammation can also cause conditions like allergies, bronchitis, and arthritis. (1,2,35,56,77)
A strong immune system is the cornerstone of good health—if the immune system is weak, it will eventually affect the other systems of the body. Flavay® can boost your immune system in several important ways. First, by increasing the activity of vitamin C, another important immune booster, Flavay® gives the immune system more ammunition to fight infection. Second, research demonstrates that Flavay® prevents free radical damage to macrophages, a type of white blood cell that generates nitric oxide to destroy bacteria, viruses, and host parasites. (10)
Flavay’s® ability to help regulate nitric oxide can profoundly influence the bodys immune functions. As long as nitric oxide is produced in the right amount, it is beneficial to the body, but if nitric oxide is overproduced, the effect can be toxic. When produced by immune cells, nitric oxide fights infection, kills tumor cells, and promotes wound healing. But when produced in excess by immune cells, nitric oxide can trigger chronic inflammation, which can cause arthritis, colitis, and inflammatory bowel disease. (3,8,10)
"[A] method for preventing and fighting the harmful biological effects of free radicals in the organism of warm blooded animals and more especially human beings, namely cerebral involution, hypoxia following atherosclerosis, cardiac or cerebral infarction, tumour promotion, inflammation, ischaemia, alterations of the synovial liquid, collagen degradation, among others. The method consists in administering to said animals and especially to human beings an amount, efficient against said effects, of a plant extract with a proanthocyanidins content which has a radical scavenger effect"—U.S. Patent No. 4,698,360 (1987). (1-3)
After more than 60 years of human use, no adverse effects have been observed. Furthermore, intensive biological, toxicological, pharmacological and analytical research was conducted for the purpose of registering it as a medicine in France and other countries in Europe. In one study, daily doses of up to 35,000 mg for six months were determined to cause no adverse effects. Flavay® was also clinically tested, in particular for all sorts of symptoms related to venolymphatic insufficiencies (strenghthening veins, improving circulation and reducing edema and inflammations). 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 demonstrate that Flavay® is highly bioavailable, nontoxic, nonallergenic, noncarcinogenic, nonmutagenic, will not cause birth defects, and is completely safe. (3, 4, 90-95)
Dr. Masqueliers unequaled manufacturing process has been conducted for half a century at the very same facilities in France, and under the control of French Pharmaceutical inspection. These time-proven standards serve as a reliable assurance of the quality, consistency, bioavailability and safety of Flavay®.
Everyone, from the very young to elderly. Flavay® has no known contraindications (conditions under which it should not be used). Flavay® is completely safe and nontoxic. In fact, clinical trials have been conducted in which pregnant women (troubled by varicose veins and other circulatory problems in the legs) safely used Flavay®. (2,8,90-95)
Consumers need to know that the marketplace is full of imitations, various extracts and derivative forms of Dr. Masqueliers scientifically proven and perfected complex. Unfortunately, many have even used Dr. Masqueliers name and research in unauthorized ways to promote illegitimate products.
Flavay® is the name you can trust for the precisely defined active polyphenol complex proven and perfected by the inventor, Dr. Jack Masquelier, validated by the French Ministry of Health and documented by a library of research consisting of many patents and hundreds of scientific papers, articles, doctorate theses, lectures and presentations. For quality, consistency, bioavailability and safety, consumers may rely upon Flavay®.
Flavay® is the amazing internal cosmetic, improving the health and appearance of the skin from the inside out: rebuilding collagen, improving circulation and health in skin cells, and reducing inflammation.
Flavay Plus® can help improve concentration, attention and memory—raising cognitive performance to the levels typical for as much as 12 years younger! (110,114)
“I've given many supplements time to work so I know what I'm saying here: Flavay is the only supplement I've ever used that affects my outward appearance significantly. Initially, benefits to my skin were secondary benefits to me because I was taking Flavay for pain and mobility. Now I take Flavay as much for the benefits to my skin as for joint pain. Expensive creams and skin treatments don't do what Flavay does for your skin.”
“I wanted to let you know that I am already seeing improvements in my skin since using Flavay. I have just placed another order for Flavay but I believe there is a typo on the address...”
—Mr. B. T.
“In less than 3 months my face was completely clear and it continues to be clear.”
“My son has been taking both FLAVAY and FLAVAY PLUS for two months and I'm happy to say his skin is about cleared up. So now all we need to do is maintain what we've got going.”
