is one of the world’s best-selling joint health ingredients – with multiple clinical studies that demonstrate efficacy starting at 7 days – with a low dose.

• Boswellic acids are natural, selective 5-lipoxygenase inhibitors. 3-O-acetyl-11-keto-ß-boswellic acid or “AKBA” is the most active.

• 5-LOXIN® provides a higher concentration of AKBA, standardized to 30%.

• In a human study, both 100mg and 250mg of 5-LOXIN® daily provided improvement in joint comfort and mobility within 7 days.

• 5-LOXIN® provided significant benefits in WOMAC, VAS and LFI standardized testing methodologies for joint health. 5-LOXIN® positively impacted biological markers associated with joint and general health, including TNFa, CRP, and IL-6.

• 5-LOXIN® was shown to significantly inhibit matrix metalloproteinase (MMP-3), enzymes that break down cartilage, collagen and connective tissues.

• 5-LOXIN® is well-tolerated, easy on the stomach and supported by extensive safety data.

5-LOXIN has been the subject of 13 pre-clinical studies and 2 human clinical trials. One of the key features of 5-LOXIN in any formulation is clinical work that has demonstrated efficacy starting at 7 days.
