Boswellia AKBA supports the structural integrity, motility and comfort of joint cartilage and promotes gastrointestinal health and cell health, primarily by maintaining healthy 5–lipoxygenase activity.What Is It?
Boswellia AKBA supports the structural integrity,
motility and comfort of joint cartilage and promotes
gastrointestinal health and cell health.*
Uses For Boswellia AKBA
Joint Support: Boswellic acids maintain healthy
5–lipoxygenase (5–LO) activity, moderating leukotriene
biosynthesis. Data suggests that of the various boswellic
acids, 3–acetyl–11–keto–beta–boswellic acid, or AKBA, is
considered the most powerful. AKBA helps preserve
the structural integrity of joint cartilage, promotes
gastrointestinal health and maintains a healthy immune
mediator cascade at the cellular level.*
Immune Support: In addition to maintaining healthy 5–LO
activity, exciting new research has revealed that 5–LOXIN®
may influence healthy gene expression of immune
compounds. In studies, 5–LOXIN® has demonstrated the
potential to support joint motility and comfort, in part by
promoting a healthy immune response. It may also play a
role in maintaining healthy matrix metalloproteinase
(MMP) activity, supporting connective tissue structural
Gastrointestinal Support: A randomized double blind study
involving 102 individuals revealed that AKBA supports
gastrointestinal health. Further studies have indicated
that AKBA may provide gastrointestinal support by
maintaining healthy immune activity in the endothelial
lining of the digestive tract. Moreover, studies suggest
AKBA supports healthy cell signaling and cell cycle function
for high capacity cellular support.*
What Is The Source?
5–LOXIN® is a patent pending boswellia extract providing
ten times as much AKBA as typical boswellia extracts. The
extract is derived from the gum resin of the boswellia
serrata plant, commonly known as frankincense. It is
standardized to contain 30% AKBA (3-acetyl-11-keto-betaboswellic
acid). Vitamin C (ascorbyl palmitate) is derived
from corn dextrose fermentation and palm oil.
Hypo-allergenic plant fiber is derived from pine cellulose.

Are There Any Potential Side Effects Or
Not to be taken by pregnant or lactating women. Rare side
effects of boswellia include diarrhea, skin rash, acid reflux
and nausea and may be contraindicated in those with
pre-existing gastritis or gastro-esophageal reflux disease
Are There Any Potential Drug Interactions?
Studies suggest boswellia moderates 5-lipoxygenase and
therefore may interact with leukotriene inhibitors.
