Uvulin's proprietary complex delivers 20 different natural compounds that have clinically proven to target every single therapeutic targets for complete uvulitis relief and long-term uvula protection.
Gotu Kola Extract - Active compounds in gotu kola, called triterpenes, promote proper tissue healing while another active constituent called glycosaminoglycan helps shorten the recovery period from the irritation. Gotu kola also works by stimulating specialized cells called fibroblasts to re-synthesize and replace the damaged extra cellular matrix under the uvula surface. It also stimulates epithelial cells on the uvula surface to ensure proper, scar-free regeneration of its delicate tissue. What's remarkable is that gotu kola's benefits go beyond efficient tissue repair. Studies have now shown that it even has the ability to heal tissue ulcerations - a crucial therapeutic target for protecting your uvula.
Ginkgo Biloba Extract - Active compounds in this extract, called ginkgolides and bilobalides, help accelerate uvula healing by improving blood supply to the injured tissue. These compounds also help maintain the integrity of newly repaired blood vessels by improving their tone and elasticity. Other active compounds, called ginkgo flavone glycosides, have remarkable antioxidant properties that effectively counter free-radical damage to your uvula.
Bilberry Extract - This extract works synergistically with ginkgo biloba to improve microcirculation in the irritated tissue and supports the proper regeneration of connective tissue in our uvula. Active compounds called tannins help reduce uvula inflammation while other active compounds called anthocyanosides strengthen newly formed capillaries by increasing their flexibility. Anthocyanosides are also known to have potent antioxidant activity which provide critical protection against oxidative damage.
Grape Seed Extract - Grape seed extract is a rich source of antioxidants and oligomeric proanthocyanidin complexes (OPCs), both of which have powerful wound healing properties. It helps reduce edema (swelling), improves microcirculation and maintains the strength of the connective tissue under the uvula surface. Clinical studies have even confirmed that the proanthocyanidins found in grape seeds can prevent cancer cell development.
Vitamin A - Vitamin A is so essential to the healing process that even minor deficiencies can slow down your recovery and result in poor tissue repair. The outer lining of our uvula is composed of epithelial cells and Vitamin A directly exerts is beneficial effects on these cells. It not only helps improve the migration of epithelial cells to the site of damage but also improves the cellular turnover of existing epithelial cells for proper tissue regeneration.
Zinc - Just as Vitamin A deficiencies can interrupt the proper healing of tissue injuries, even small deficiencies of Zinc can slow down the healing process of your uvula. Not only is Zinc essential for regenerating new epithelial cells, it also promotes healing by reducing inflammation, boosting collagen production and exerting its powerful antioxidant properties to scavenge cell-damaging free radicals.
Aloe Vera Gel - This remarkable ingredient contains at least six different kinds of antiseptic compounds known to kill viruses, bacteria and fungi. It has also shown to heal mucosal ulcerations, such as apthous ulcers, in the mouth region, which is precisely what is needed to protect the uvula from erosive uvulitis. Aloe vera also contains 12 different types of anti-inflammatory compounds which are especially effective on irritations of the oral mucosa. Another major benefit of aloe vera is that it increases the absorption of Vitamin C (also a part of uvulin) by 200%. Finally, the gel form of aloe vera helps maintain our uvula's moisture levels by creating a protective barrier around it.
Vitamin C - Vitamin C is a powerful water-soluble antioxidant, which means it can neutralize free radicals in the aqueous fluids in the intracellular environment of our uvula cells. It also helps speed tissue healing by boosting collagen levels in the injured tissue and maintains the production of healthy connective tissue. Since most common forms of Vitamin C are acidic in nature, the uvulin formula uses Calcium Ascorbate, a gentler, pH neutral form of Vitamin C.
Licorice Extract - Flavonoids in this extract are known to relieve mucous membrane sores in our mouth. It helps protect the uvula from ulcerative damage by forming a protective film coating its outer lining which also prevents dehydration and throat itchiness. Licorice root also has both anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties, especially against Helicobacter pylori which is the one of the leading causes of ulcers from the uvula down to our stomach. Compounds called sterols and sterolins found in licorice help balance the immune system, preventing allergy driven immune attacks on the uvula. The Uvulin formula uses a specific kind of licorice extract known as de-glycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL) which is activated by our saliva and does not cause any of the side effects associated with normal licorice preparations.
Marshmallow Extract - The active component of Marshmallow, called mucilage, is a slippery gel-like substance that coats the mucous membrane of our uvula. This protective coating is especially helpful in protecting our uvula from acid reflux damage because it not only creates a physical barrier against acid exposure, it also contains flavonoids that allow the ulcerations to quickly heal underneath. So resilient is this mucilage coating that it helps soothe irritations from your uvula all the way down to the colon because it remains unaltered by the digestive process. Marshmallow extract is also an effective antimicrobial agent that helps clear bacteria by stimulating phagocytosis. Best of all, it is fast acting and relieves uvulitis symptoms such as throat soreness and pain during swallowing almost immediately upon contact.
Sage Extract - Sage has excellent antiseptic properties that are especially effective on the oral mucosa. It has shown to be effective against different strains of bacteria such as Salmonella, E.Coli and even has remarkable antifungal activity, particularly against Candida albicans. Sage is not only effective at directly fighting infections of the uvula, it can even help prevent secondary opportunistic infections that may emerge as a result of the uvulitis cycle of damage. It's high tannin levels also give it marked astringent properties which help tighten the mucus membranes, preventing the infection entering the tissue surface. This activity combined with its anti-inflammatory effect (thanks an active compound called Rosemarinic acid) helps it reduce swelling in the uvula and bring fast symptomatic relief from the pain.
Garlic Extract - This is one of the most effective ingredients in the Uvulin formula. Garlic extract contains an active compound known as Allicin that antibacterial properties so astounding that it compares in effectiveness to penicillin. In addition, it has antifungal and antiparasitic properties and is known to be effective in treating uvulitis, tonsillitis, pharyngitis and even allergies. In other words, garlic extract doesn't just protect your uvula, it protects the extended tissues around it, effectively defending you from the flow-over effect. Garlic also contains different types of sulfur compounds that detoxify the uvula tissue and improve its blood circulation. Finally, clinical studies have validated its anticancer properties. Garlic has potent antioxidant effect on our uvula and its surrounding tissue. As a matter of fact, research has even suggested that it can help in preventing throat cancers - one of the biggest risks of chronic uvulitis.
Ginger Extract - Ginger is considered a tonic for oral and digestive mucosal tissues. As a potent anti-inflammatory agent it helps relieve the pain and prevents tissue damage to your uvula. It also eases feelings of nausea that may be associated with a hypersensitive gag reflex because of an enlarged uvula. Ginger's antimicrobial properties make it effective against E.Coli, Salmonella, Staphyloccoccus and even the Steptococcus species. Most importantly, ginger's effect on suppressing cancer cell development is quite noteworthy. It has shown to stimulate cancer cell apoptosis (cell death) and may even provide protection against not just oral cancers but colon cancer, skin cancer, ovarian cancer and even breast cancer. Besides its primary therapeutic benefits for uvulitis relief, garlic extract it is also an effective bioenhancer that increases the absorption of all the other ingredients in the Uvulin formula.
Curcumin (Turmeric 95% extract) - Curcumin is an extract of turmeric and is known for its extremely effective anti-inflammatory action. It does this by attacking the inflammation pathway at multiple points. For example, it lowers pro-inflammatory enzymes (LOX and COX-2) and blocks NF-kB - a molecule that turns on genes involved in the inflammatory process. So effective is this anti-inflammatory action that its potency has been compared to prescription drugs but without the side effects. Curcumin has shown to be extremely beneficial as an antimicrobial and even helps heal ulcerations of mucosal tissues such as the uvula and esophagus. However, curcumin's biggest benefit is its ability to slow and even prevent the development of many types of cancer. The powerful antioxidant properties of curcumin can help prevent free radical injury to the membranes of our uvula cells and guard its DNA from damage. Curcumin has also shown to interrupt the growth of blood vessels in developing tumors.
American Ginseng Extract - American ginseng is one of the oldest studied adaptogen and has shown to be helpful in restoring immune system balance and normalizing organ function. This benefit translates well for uvulitis relief where an over-active immune response is often responsible for allergen driven uvula inflammation. Emerging research has also supported ginseng's antioxidant role in protecting against cancer.
Quercetin - Quercetin is bioflavonoid, derived from fresh fruits and vegetables, which helps provide relief from allergic reactions that may be the cause of your uvulitis. It works by stabilizing mast cells and blocking the release of histamines and other pro-inflammatory signals. Unlike some of the other antioxidants in the Uvulin formula, Quercetin's anti-cancer protection comes from a unique process where it activates a key step in the production of glutathoine - our body's most important antioxidant.
Wheatgrass (Extract & Full Spectrum) - There is a reason why wheatgrass is considered the king of alkalinizing foods. It has an acidity lowering (pH increasing) effect which is extremely helpful for defending your uvula against acid erosion. Wheatgrass is also an excellent detoxifying substance. It has high amounts of saponins which help remove toxins from our cells by boosting our lymphatic system. The reason we also use the full spectrum form of wheatgrass is because it is a rich source of amino acids which are vital building blocks necessary for the proper regeneration of our uvula tissue after an injury or infection. Finally, not only does wheatgrass contain many different antioxidant compounds, it has also shown to reduce the absorption of toxins and carcinogens into our cells.
Meadowsweet Extract - Meadowsweet acts like a natural antacid that protects the outer surface of the uvula from acid damage. It astringent properties helps heal ulcerations by tightening and toning the lining of the uvula. Meadowsweet is also a natural source of salicylates which have excellent inflammation reducing and pain relieving properties.
Green Tea Extract - The polyphenols found in green tea have wide ranging benefits however one particular polyphenol called EGCG has remarkable benefits for uvulitis sufferers. While many other extracts in the Uvulin formula protect the uvula from acid damage through a shielding effect, EGCG is the only natural compound that has shown to target the root of the problem and help the smooth muscles of the lower esophageal sphincter tighten better so that acid doesn't escape the stomach in the first place. In addition, this extract is known to prevent ulcerations, lower inflammation and even neutralize bacterial and viral infections.
Green tea is also a rich source of manganese, potassium, zinc, niacin, vitamin C and folic acid, which nourishes our uvula tissue, accelerates its healing and optimizes its function. Recently green tea has also been garnering a lot of attention because of its powerful antioxidant effect which is 25 times stronger than Vitamin E. Studies have shown it to protect against esophageal cancer. It is believed to selectively induce apoptosis (cell death) in cancer cells while leaving healthy cells alone. Especially for uvulitis sufferers is one study in particular that showed its benefits on leukoplakia - precancerous patches that occur in the mucosal membranes of our mouth, such as the uvula. Green tea had shown to cause significant decreases in this condition and prevented it from growing into cancer.
Cleavers Extract - The main reason for its inclusion in the Uvulin formula is its protective effect on the salivary and seromucous glands of our uvula that are responsible for maintaining its moisture barrier. The active compounds in cleavers include flavonoids, tannins and iridoid glycosides help defend these glands from the damaging effect of inflammation. Cleavers also help maintain the flow of lymphatic fluids and is known for is cleansing effect on our lymph system.
