The cells in your immune system need a variety of compounds in order to function at their best. In many cases‚ you may benefit from botanical extracts‚ like those found in Pure Encapsulations' Phyto-4.
Phyto-4 provides several botanicals. One of the most prominent is Perluxan® hops extract; hops are often used in brewing beer. Perluxan® may support joint health and comfort‚ without the phytoesterogenic compounds that may cause you to feel sleepy. It contains alpha and iso-alpha acids to maintain the integrity of connective tissue.
Meanwhile‚ curcumin comes from turmeric extract‚ a spice commonly used in curries and Indian cooking. Phyto-4 contains Curcumin C3 Complex®‚ which has been standardized to provide 95 percent curcuminoids. Curcumin supports healthy bones and joints by working to ease mild inflammation and pain.
Another natural ingredient is ginger root‚ which may provide additional support for your joints. Ginger promotes the healthy signaling of cytokines in cartilage‚ as well as in the synovial fluids that surround joints. The ginger in Phyto-4 has been standardized to provide five percent gingerols‚ the active compound.
Finally‚ 5-LOXIN® is a unique form of Boswellia serrata. This herbal extract‚ also known as Indian frankincense‚ contains AKBA. This boswellic acid is highly bioavailable‚ and supports a healthy immune response. It also works to promote good structural composition of connective tissues‚ allowing them to stay strong‚ flexible‚ and comfortable.
Phyto-4 serves as a convenient source of all of these herbs‚ as opposed to having to take several different supplements. Take two capsules daily with meals. At the recommended dosage‚ each 60-capsule bottle of Pure Encapsulations' Phyto-4 should last for about one month.
Pure Encapsulations seeks to formulate and manufacture high-quality‚ hypoallergenic dietary supplements. Quality control during the formulation and manufacturing process is paramount. All Pure Encapsulations products are made with the most bioavailable ingredients possible.

Natural Relief for Osteoarthritis
I am taking Phyto-4 for osteoarthritis and find it works well. I am on my second bottle right now and my pain has decreased substantially in my joints since starting Phyto-4 about a month ago. I think the blend of ingredients are a great formula for osteoarthritis pain relief.
Everything -- the formula seems to work.
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
