Treatment Information
Zyflamend is an herbal supplement containing ten different herbs as follows:
Ocimum sanctum (Holy basil) leaf; Curcuma longa (Turmeric) rhizome; Zingiber officinale (Ginger) rhizome; Camellia sinensis (Green tea) leaf; Rosemarinus officinalis (Rosemary) leaf and essential oil; Polygonum cuspidatum (Hu Zhang) root; Coptis chinensis (Chinese goldthread) root; Berberis vulgaris (Barberry) root; Origanum heracleoticum (Oregano) leaf; and Scutellaria baicalensis (Scullcap) root.

Zyflamend is used primarily as an anti-inflammatory agent. The reported method of action is inhibition of cyclooxygenase-2 activity. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, Zyflamend is used to treat arthritis and other inflammatory conditions. Other uses are for anti-ageing purposes and potential prevention/treatment of cancer.

Because Zyflamend is an herbal remedy, it has not been thoroughly tested and approved by the FDA. The FDA has issued a warning statement concerning exaggerated claims about this product stressing that Zyflamend has not been well researched.

29 Oct 2013 In the past I have already posted a comment & find the comments posted then & since to be interesting, many of which I can identify with. What I have found helpful for various symptoms is apple cider vinegar (Bragg's). I mix 4 cups juice with 1/2 cup ACV in a pitcher; then I drink 1/4 cup upon rising in a.m. & an hour before a meal if I want it and/or before going to bed @ night. I don't care for the taste of ACV so that's why I mix with a juice of my choice such as lemonade. However I do love it on spinach :)) A booklet on the benefits of ACV can be purchased from a health store/bookstore or probably borrowed from library. Immediately after drinking the mix I have a generalized better- feeling, especially if I had any GI symptoms. It's a safe/healthy "something-to-try" :)) -dee

21 Oct 2013 I have only been taking Z for about a week, but have noticed my aches & pains have been less. Also my acid reflux has been worse. After reading some of these comments I see that there can be indigestion problems. I'm assuming food is the solution. Wondering if time of day makes much difference for the stomach. Hope I can work it out as Z seems to be working.

01 Oct 2013 I have a long story on Zyflamend. I had a sore left knee which at one point was preventing me from playing basketball. Using Glucosomine helped for a number of years, but suddenly my knees were aching again even with Glucosomine. The prospect of eliminating my active lifestyle was a depressing thought. A friend of mine, who does competitive endurance road bike recommended Zyflamend, as all her friends take it. I stopped taking my other supplements and only used Zyflamend Nighttime. Gradually, I noticed my pain recede again and was able to play basketball again. Even more impressive, the range of motion of my legs is almost back to my days in college. I am leg pressing weights to the same level as I was when I was 24, and I'm now 55. As a bonus, the pain in my right elbow due to bone spurs has also gone away completely. It certainly has been a miracle supplement for me. I've been taking Zyflamend for about 9 months (2 at night) now with no side effects. Don't know if helped with my sleep, as I didn't have any problems before. But it didn't hurt for certain.
