You may have already heard about the potential benefits that boswellia extract can offer. It may support stronger and less painful joints‚ a healthier colon‚ and more. However‚ there has been a recent breakthrough that may maximize its potential.
Boswellia AKBA by Pure Encapsulations is unique because it contains a patent-pending form of boswellia extract‚ 5–LOXIN®. Unlike other types of this Ayurvedic herb‚ it may contain up to 10 times as much of the main compound‚ AKBA. AKBA is also known as 3-acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid‚ and may be one of the most powerful of those boswellic acids.
This supplement can support a healthy immune system response‚ which may protect you from feeling sick. Improved immunity may promote better functioning of the gastrointestinal tract by supporting immune cells in the endothelial lining. 5–LOXIN® also uses this ability to promote a greater range of motion and comfort in your joints. Healthy joints that aren't stiff or causing you pain are less likely to prevent you from participating in the exercise and physical activity essential to overall well-being.
Finally‚ AKBA may play a role in supporting healthy connective tissues. It helps your body maintain appropriate levels of MMP (matrix metalloproteinase)‚ which is involved in the structural composition of connective tissues.
Each vegetarian capsule of Pure Encapsulations' Boswellia AKBA provides 100 milligrams of 5–LOXIN® Boswellia serrata extract (derived from Indian frankincense gum resin)‚ 30 milligrams of which is standardized AKBA. One 120-capsule bottle should last for about four months at the recommended dosage of one capsule per day with food.

Overall Rating for Boswellia AKBA - 120 Capsules
from Westminster, CO
Great for arthritis
I was diagnosed by a doctor a couple of years ago with osteoarthritis in my neck (C4 and C5). I started getting a lot of pain in the last 8 months in my neck and shoulder and started seeing an acupuncturist Ty to see if it would help. She also does muscle testing and she recommended I try the Boswellia AKBA (specifically the AKBA) formula back in December taking one a day. Ive been taking it daily since. Yesterday she tested me again and recommended I take 2 a day now (likely because of the whiplash I received from a car accident at the beginning of the year). Once again the muscle testing showed my body really liked and needed this great anti-inflammatory. Im going to continue taking it. As a side benefit the problems I was beginning to have with my knees has greatly diminished. My coworker in her early 60s had heard about Boswellia AKBA from her sister who is taking and when I told her I was taking it she started trying it for her lower back disc problems. Her bioscan gal recently tested her and it was the only anti-inflammatory supplement that tested very strong so shes continuing to take it also. That makes 3 happy customers of this product. I appreciate the variety of manufacturer brands that PureFormula carries they are my number one provider of choice for nutritional supplements.
