Boswellia serrata extract
Purified oleoresin from the Boswellia serrata tree, native to India, contains boswellic acids, which have been shown to be responsible for the tissue-protective actions of this extract. Boswellic acids appear to act by inhibiting the production of leukotrienes.† Boswellic acids are reported to increase blood supply to joint tissues, thereby supporting normal cartilage synthesis.† The extract from Boswellia serrata resin, standardized to contain a minimum of 65% boswellic acids, is an integral component in this formulation.
Turmeric root extract
Curcumin is the yellow pigment contained in turmeric (Curcuma longa), a popular culinary spice from India. In addition to imparting a characteristic color and flavor to foods, curcumin has antioxidant properties and beneficial action on tissue health. Like boswellic acids, curcumin inhibits mediators, including thromboxanes and leukotrienes. As an antioxidant, curcumin protects against oxidative damage. Additionally, there is evidence that curcumin may strengthen the body’s natural physiological responses. †
Devil’s Claw extract
The tubers of this South African plant are rich in iridoid glycosides, in particular harpagosides. The harpagosides benefit connective tissue metabolism by supporting the immune response to physiological stressors. †
