The aging process and its accompanying normal wear and tear on joints can be responsible for joint pain and stiffness. Appropriate exercise — particularly good stretching exercises — can help to keep joints limber, but sometimes additional support is required.
Dr. D’Adamo has designed Phloxicin to help maintain joint health and flexibility using one amino acid with a combination of herbal ingredients. L-Histidine is an amino acid that may be beneficial to relieve pain associated with chronic arthritis, and Polygonum Cuspidatum, a member of the buckwheat family, contains resveratrol, which has been shown to demonstrate antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity when associated with the occasional joint pain and stiffness resulting from normal wear and tear on joints.
Boswellia serrata, also known as 'Indian frankincense', is another key ingredient in Phloxicin. It is an herb that is commonly used in Ayurveda, the traditional medicine of India. The boswellia is a branching tree that is native to India and grows in the dry, hilly regions of the country. The tree produces a resin, or sap, that can be extracted and purified for medicinal purposes to treat a diverse range of conditions. The extract has been used for thousands of years in India because of the belief that it gave elephants their longevity and health, and it was hoped that boswellia would do the same for humans.
Traditionally, boswellia has been used to treat conditions such as diabetes, skin and blood diseases, fevers, cardiovascular disorders, neurological disorders and rheumatism, but it is best known for its treatment of inflammatory conditions. Research indicates that boswellia extract may help to slow or stop the deterioration of cartilage and joint tissue. In studies, patients suffering from rheumatoid and osteo-arthritis that took a supplement containing boswellia saw significant improvement in their condition - reporting greater range of motion and reduced pain and stiffness. Unlike other over the counter treatments that contain ibuprofen, boswellia can be taken used over long periods of time without causing stomach upset.
Asthma is another chronic condition that is affected by inflammation. Asthma sufferers who took a boswellia supplement reported that they noted fewer attacks and better measureable air movement through the lungs. The effect of Boswellia on asthma is currently being studied in greater detail. One reason why it is believed to work at controlling asthma symptoms is its anti-inflammatory properties.
In studies of patients with inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis, and Crohn's disease, boswellia reduced gastrointestinal inflammation and tissue damage. These diseases are characterized by chronic inflammation in the intestines and digestive tract. It is believed that boswellia can reduce the damage and inflammation by decreasing the number of cells that contribute to the inflammation and increasing the cells that fight against it. Those who took a supplement of boswellia for 6 weeks reported a significant improvement in their symptoms.
As scientists continue to study this amazing herb, they will find the science behind the ancient wisdom. This is great news for those who are looking for a natural solution to chronic inflammatory conditions.
Woven into the total formula, all of these synergistic ingredients help to support joint health and flexibility for men and women of all blood types.
