5-Loxin® Supplement – Boswellia Serrata Extract for Inflammation
5-loxin® is a new, proprietary extract of Boswellia serrata, an Indian tree with long-recognized therapeutic properties. Indeed, its therapeutic applications feature in several traditional pharmacopeias including Ayurvedic medicine, now available to buy from Supersmart. In Africa and Asia, natural boswellia serrata extracts are traditionally used to relieve inflammatory pain, including that associated with arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, and certain inflammatory bowel diseases.
What are the Health Benefits Associated with 5-loxin® Supplement?
The benefits come from Boswellia serrata and its exceptional content in boswellic and pentacyclic triterpenic acids, active principles identified as powerful natural anti-inflammatories. With multiple anti-inflammatory properties, boswellic acids offer significant potential for relieving the pain of inflammation and treating inflammatory diseases.
- Several studies have shown that boswellic acids may be able to combat various processes involved in the inflammatory response. For example, they appear to inhibit the pro-inflammatory enzyme 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX), as well as pro-inflammatory cytokines and cell adhesion molecules involved in inflammation. The anti-inflammatory action of Boswellia serrata has been studied in relation to various therapeutic applications.
- Scientists have reported analgesic effects, particularly on joint pain suffered by arthritis patients.
- Supplementation with boswellic acids has also been investigated for its potential in treating asthma and chronic intestinal diseases such as Crohn's.
- Boswellic acids appear to inhibit cancerous cell angiogenesis and invasion and thus have an anti-cancer effect.
Why Opt for 5-Loxin®?
Several Boswellia serrata extracts are now available as nutritional supplements offering the anti-inflammatory effects of boswellic acids. However, they do not all have the same active principle content. As a result of many years of research, the proprietary extract 5-loxin® has the advantage of being standardized to 30% acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid (AKBA) and free from side-effects. This specific boswellic acid is considered one of the most powerful active principles in Boswellia serrata.
To maximize its effects, this new extract is delivered in the form of vegetarian capsules, each containing an optimal 100 mg of 5-loxin®. The suggested dose for this high-quality supplement is one to two capsules a day. For maximum efficacy, 5-loxin® should be taken with food. Its effects can be boosted by combining it with other natural anti-inflammatories available to buy at Supersmart, such as curcumin from turmeric, or extracted from peanut shells.
Boswellia Serrata Extract Side Effects
Before adding 5-Loxin AKBA to your daily supplemental regime, make sure you are aware of any potential side effects. It is always considered best practice to conduct your own research into any inflammation or asthma supplements to make an informed decision regarding whether a supplement is right for you.
Generally, Boswellia Serrata extract is perfectly safe to take for most people. Any documented side effects have been pinpointed as mild and not dangerous to long-term health for the majority.
Most side effects arise due to taking too much 5-Loxin Boswellia Serrata extract in a day. It underpins the importance of carefully following the recommended daily dosage of any supplement. Beginners commonly make the mistake of trying to exceed the recommended dosage in an attempt to amplify the effects, which is not effective and increases the risk of unwanted side effects.
Another reason why 5-Loxin side effects may arise occurs when someone is also taking prescription medications for chronic conditions. Even a natural substance like acetyl-11-keto beta Boswellic acid could display side effects when coming into contact with other compounds.
The only way to be sure that joint pain relief and anti-inflammatory properties do not come at the expense of side effects is to schedule a consultation with your doctor. Only your family doctor can go through your medical history and determine whether there is a risk of experiencing side effects when you buy 5-Loxin and add it to your daily supplemental regimen.
If you experience any unpleasant or uncomfortable side effects when taking 5-Loxin for inflammation, stop taking the supplement and schedule an appointment with your doctor.
