Organika Boswellia Curcumin Complex, 90 Vcaps
Inflammation plays a key role in most chronic illnesses. Arthritis, asthma, allergies, ulcers, edema, inflammatory bowel conditions, auto-immune diseases and any state that ends with -itis all involve inflammation. With exercise, from the weekend warrior to the elite athlete, inflammation can be a regular occurence. Keeping inflammation balanced is key to preventing long-term damage and promoting proper recovery. Organika’s Boswellia Curcumin Complex provides a synergistic blend of nutrients studied for their help in decreasing inflammation.
Boswellia, more commonly known as frankincense, is a type of fragrant tree resin that has been traded on the Arabian Peninsula for more than 6,000 years. In Traditional Chinese Medicine it is used to move “stagnant blood”. It contains many powerful terpenes, the primary constituents of its essential oils. Frankincense is known for its anti-inflammatory, anxiety-reducing, anti-microbial, digestion-enhancing and immune boosting effects.
The turmeric root has been traditionally used in India as a cold and inflammation remedy. Its medicinal benefits come from curcumin, a naturally-occurring chemical with potent anti-inflammatory properties. Turmeric root provides a wealth of phytonutrients including curcumin, the most active and studied constituent of the root. Curcumin has shown to be very effective as a means of reducing inflammation in the body.
Black pepper, yes, the black pepper of your dinner table, is added to increase the absorption of turmeric. Adding heat and depth to the blend, it also helps soothe digestive issues.
Serratiopeptidase (also known as serrapeptase) is a proteolytic enzyme that helps in combating chronic inflammation. It has a very long history in medicine as an effective anti-inflammatory drug.
These four ingredients combined in Organika’s Boswellia Curcumin Complex provide a four-way punch in decreasing inflammation.
