About the Ingredients
The Boswellia Serrata tree grows in India. Its gummy resin, called Salai guggal, has been found to reduce inflammation and to support the body's response to pain, including that caused by painful joints. Studies show that Boswellia serrata may reduce levels of harmful enzymes in the synovial fluid in joints, thus reducing damage to cartilage. These actions are said to reduce pain and swelling while increasing flexibility.
Celery Seed 3nB
Celery seed (Apium graveolens) contains phthalides, substances that help reduce inflammation. One of celery seed's most active ingredients is 3-n-butyl pthalide, or 3nB, a beneficial compound that is unique to celery. This extract is said to work by fending off pro-inflammatory prostaglandins, in this way reducing pain brought on by the body's inflammatory response. Reducing pain and offsetting inflammation result in improved joint function.
Meriva is a patented curcumin product. Curcumin is the orange pigment in turmeric (the main ingredient in curry), and is a powerful antioxidant that offers a range of health benefits, including supporting joint health, cardiovascular health, and helping to maintain the body's normal inflammatory response.
Quality of Life Questions & Answers
Are their products vegetarian?
Whenever possible. Quality of Life formulates their products to be vegetarian and provides them in vegetarian capsules made from vegetable cellulose. However, many of the most-researched nutritional ingredients are derived from animal products, such as vitamin D3, chondroitin, collagen, and Neptune krill oil. Because of their commitment to clinically efficacious products, when they have to choose between a vegetarian form of an ingredient (such as vitamin D2) or an animal-derived, yet more efficacious form (such as vitamin D3), they choose to prioritize the more scientifically validated form.
Can your products be safely taken together?
In general, yes. Because their products are formulated for specific conditions, there is very little ingredient overlap among them. In some cases, where an ingredient has multiple functions (such as vitamin D), it may be included in several products, but rarely at the upper intake level (the highest level of a nutrient that can be taken ongoing with no side effects). For example, the upper intake level for vitamin D is 4,000 IU and the vitamin D content of Quality of Life products ranges from 400 to 2,000 IU per day.
Are their products safe to use while pregnant/breastfeeding?
As with any nutritional supplement, you should always consult with a health care practitioner when assessing the safety of any Quality of Life product while pregnant or breastfeeding.
When is the best time to take their products?
Some products are best taken on an empty stomach, while others are better taken with food. The very best time to take your supplements is when you remember to take them! When it comes to results, consistency is more important than timing.
Do their products contain any allergens?
Quality of Life complies with the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act, which took effect January of 2006 and mandates that any product containing one of the eight major allergens - milk, egg, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, wheat, peanuts, and soybeans - be clearly labeled.
