Infla-Guard® contains a synergistic combination of three standardized botanical extracts: boswellia serrata, turmeric root, and devil's claw. Infla-guard® tablets are coated with an acid-resistant enteric coating to protect the integrity of the nutrients.
Boswellia serrata extract: This purified oleoresin from boswellia serrata contains boswellic acids. These acids act by inhibiting leukotrienes, a class of mediators of the body's inflammatory response.
Turmeric root extract: Curcumin, found in turmeric, has potent antioxidant properties. Like boswellic acids, curcumin inhibits mediators of the inflammatory response, including thromboxanes and leukotrienes. Turmeric is used in Herbal Medicine as an anti-inflammatory to help relieve joint pain.
Infla-guard® may be taken safely in conjunction with other natural health products that support connective tissue metabolism, such as glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate.
