Boswellic acids have been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic Medicine, and are natural, selective 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX) enzyme inhibitors. There are six boswellic acids; however, AKBA is the most active acid. 5 LOXIN is patent-pending, providing a higher concentration of AKBA than other Boswellia serrata extracts, which typically contain only 2%-3%.

After 10 month on NSAIDs with severe swelling and lack of mobility in my knee due to advanced osteoarthritis, this product has been the first "breakthrough" after many trials with other alternative therapies. The concentration of AKBA, the active anti-inflammatory component of Boswellia, is ten times that of standardized Boswellia extracts. There is another proprietary product on the market with an even higher concentration of AKBA, Boswellia 90, but that product was actually TOO concentrated for me. I highly recommend this product!
i would continue to take this product- we need all the help we can get with reducing inflammation in this day and age. cheers
i can't believe iherb has discontinued this!!!!

totally bummed, signed on to re~order and it is discontinued. I injured both ankles running on the beach a couple years ago and this 5Loxin made the swelling go down so fast, within days I was running again. I take this daily now to aide with inflammation in my entire body. I am very disappointed that it is now discontinued.

I have been very pleased with the subtle effects of this supplement in relieving arthritic knee pain. The studies are correct, it is effective in relieving knee pain from arthritis. It's effects are gradual until one day after taking for a few weeks, you realize you're able to walk and climb stairs much better with much less knee pain. I was hoping that it might also help my low back pain, but sadly, that was not to be. However, I am very happy to take one 75 mgm capsule daily, to add to my daily dose of 100 mgm 5-Loxin that is in the recommended daily "serving" of 2 tablets of Osteo-Biflex Advanced Formula. Thanks for a great product!
greatest product ever.

5-loxin ( boswellia- alka Frankincense alka 3 kings gave to Jesus)) best product ever made. I have arthritis, bad back and knees with alot of inflammation. This product is fabulous and rids that inflammation where the pain goes away and ables me to walk. I take 1 am and 1 pm. My 15 yr maltase came down with such severe srthritis that her quality of life was in question. She would moan getting up and we always knew when she was in pain- she would chew the fur off her feet. I decided to get her off metcap ( like celebrex to a dog) and put her on my5-loxin. What a difference it made. She gets 1/3 cap am and pm. She hasn't been in pain for 2 weeks now and started her morning walk again- slow but walking. The moans are gone and appetite is back. She is a changed dog and the vet was shocked. She told us she thought she was going to have to put her down. She took down my food receipe we feed her and the amount we give her for inflammation, to give to another patient. I also take grape seed/skin,pycnogel, vit c, ginger-all for inflammation.

I ordered these capsules for my 13 year old dog, Maggie, who is having more difficulty getting around now than she did as a "kid". A friend who does animal acupuncture recommended the 5-Loxin for Maggie, and I think they are helping her mobility since she began taking them daily. This was my first order with this company, and certainly will not be the last. Easy ordering, email updates on shipping and excellent delivery very quickly.
