Boswellia: What it is, What it Does and How it Works
Boswellia (also known as frankincense) has been treasured since Biblical times for its potent health properties. It's an herbal supplement made from the resin of the boswellia serrata tree. For thousands of years, Boswellia has been prized for its health properties, including support of a healthy inflammatory response.*
Studies have shown that boswellic acid supports a normal inflammatory response by blocking the enzyme 5-lipoxygenase, which then inhibits the synthesis of leukotrienes. It has also been shown to support healthy cartilage. This makes Boswellia for dogs and Boswellia for horses ideal supplements for inflammatory response.
Boswellia for Dogs Study
In Switzerland in 2004, a veterinary clinical trial was conducted comparing joint health in dogs, before and after ingestion of extract of boswellia serrata. The extract was given once a day with food at 400mg/10kg of body weight for six weeks. After just two weeks, researchers noted that 71% of the dogs showed improvement. By week six, significant positive changes were shown in mobility and comfort. A few dogs had brief, reversible episodes of loose stools. (Reichling J, Schmokel H, Fitzi J, Bucher S, Saller R.

I ordered Advanced Hip & Joint for our 12-year-old English Pointer named Pepper. She whined with any movement and could hardly get up in the morning. After one month of your product, she was like a puppy again. My husband is going to take her hunting (he had previously retired her). He can't believe how good she looks.
Thanks! Jeffie H. Pike, Washington
Above is a video showing how well Pepper is doing. She is 12 years old and keeps up with the younger dogs, sometimes even outpacing them. She is in the blue collar, runs off to the left of the screen. Advanced Hip & Joint Chewables helped her return to hunting.
