Glucosamine - Glucosamine is a precursor for numerous substances that provide the foundation for many of the body's tissues such as: tendons, ligaments, cartilage, collagen, and more. Glucosamine supports the health of tissues that make up many of the body's organs. It is a very popular ingredient in topical products and oral nutritional supplements.
Boswellia Serrata - Boswellia or Indian frankincense is an ayuvedic herb that is used traditionally to support the treatment of arthritis, ulcerative colitis, sores, and asthma. The major components are boswellic acid and alpha-boswellic acid. Animal studies show that boswellic acid is a potent 5-lipoxygenase inhibitor that has anti-inflammatory and anti-arthritic effects. It is a very popular ingredient in high end topical products and oral nutritional supplements.
MSM - MSM is a natural sulfer-containing compound that is produced in the human body. MSM occurs naturally in foods we consume, but even moderate food processing destroys most of it. MSM provides a very important source of sulfur, which plants, animals and humans need for many processes. It is a very popular ingredient in many topical products and oral nutritional supplements.
Curcumin - Turmeric has anti-inflammatory action. The anti-inflammatory action is believed to be due to leukotriene inhibition. Its curcuminoids and volatile oil are both partly responsible for the anti-inflammatory activity. Turmeric acts as a free radical scavenger and antioxidant. It is a very popular ingredient in topical products and oral nutritional supplements.
Vitamin E - Vitamin E is a natural anti-oxidant that the body uses to neutralize free radicals. It insures the stability and integrity of cellular tissues and membranes throughout the body by preventing free radical change.
