What is <i>Boswellia serrata</i>?

Boswellia serrata, also known as Indian frankincense, is a large branching tree native to India, Northern Africa, and the Middle East. The tree’s resin contains boswellic acids, which have shown in laboratory studies to support a healthy inflammatory response1 and promote joint health2. Boswellia serrata may also help with occasional discomfort and joint stiffness due to daily activity3.

What is Turmeric?

A plant of the ginger family native to Asia and India most commonly associated as a spice for cooking. The active component, curcumin, is a yellow phytochemical extracted from the plant’s roots. It contains free radical scavenging abilities and has shown to assist in the synthesis of important cellular enzymes.

Warnings: For animal use only. Keep out of reach of children and other animals. In case of accidental overdose, contact a health professional immediately.

Why does Synovi G4® not contain chondroitin?

Synovi G4® is based on the joint health ingredient matrix found in Synovi G3® which contains Perna canaliculus, also known as Green-lipped mussel, found off the coastal waters of New Zealand. Perna is a source of chondroitin as well as Omega-3 fatty acids.

Warnings: For animal use only. Keep out of reach of children and other animals. In case of accidental overdose, contact a health professional immediately.

Why did you choose the combination of <i>Boswellia</i> and Turmeric?

These two ingredients were added because they are not commonly found in traditional joint supplements and are known for a variety of health benefits. A growing body of evidence indicates that both Boswellia and Turmeric may be beneficial in the support of healthy joints, including cartilage and connective tissue, as well as a healthy inflammatory response.
