Supraflex™ takes a lead from the traditional medical systems that were practiced in ancient India and Asia. It utilizes the herb Boswellia serrata which has been shown in experiments in the laboratory to antagonize or inhibit the production of substances that may promote inflammation in joints. This normal body function of the production of inflammatory substances (leukotrienes) is a key manner in which Boswellia may function as nutritional support for joint structure and function.
