  • What Is It?


    EPA/DHA-Glucosamine combines ultra-pure molecularly
    distilled fish oil with glucosamine, boswellia and curcumin
    for optimal joint function and comfort.*


    Uses For EPA/DHA-Glucosamine


    Joint Health: Fish oil moderates prostaglandin and
    leukotriene production, supporting healthy connective tissue.
    It also plays a role in moderating neutrophil activity,
    supporting joint comfort. A double blind, placebo-controlled,
    prospective study involving 66 subjects revealed that fish
    oil modulates immune mediator activity as well as
    provides support for joint flexibility. Glucosamine is a
    naturally occurring compound necessary for the synthesis
    of proteoglycans, the protein molecules responsible for
    giving cartilage its strength and resilience. Sulfate, another
    component of proteoglycans, works synergistically with
    glucosamine to enhance cartilage metabolism. Boswellia
    serrata is an Ayurvedic herb that has a long history of use
    for connective tissue and joint support. Boswellic acids,
    the active terpenoid constituents of boswellia, may
    maintain healthy 5-lipoxygenase enzyme activity and
    healthy leukotriene metabolism to promote joint comfort.
    Curcumin also promotes joint comfort by supporting
    healthy histamine production, eicosanoid metabolism
    and neutrophil response.*

  • Are There Any Potential Side Effects Or Precautions?Certain ingredients may cause burping, gastrointestinal upset, nausea, diarrhea, or abdominal bloating. Boswellia may be contraindicated in those with pre-existing gastritis or gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD). Fish oils have a mild blood thinning effect and may influence glucose metabolism in some individuals, typically at larger levels. Curcumin should be used with caution in patients with bile duct obstruction. If pregnant or lactating, consult your physician before taking this product.Are There Any Potential Drug Interactions?Studies suggest boswellia moderates 5-lipoxygenase and therefore may interact with leukotriene inhibitors. Certain ingredients may react with blood thinning medications. Consult your physician for more information.
