EPA/DHA-Glucosamine combines essential fatty acids with glucosamine, boswellia and curcumin for optimal joint function and comfort.
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.*
What Is The Source?
Pure Encapsulations EPA/DHA products are molecularly distilled
and microfiltered. They are sourced mainly from sardines and
anchovies off the coast of Chile or Norway. They have been tested
for contaminants including heavy metals, dioxans and furans, PCBs,
peroxides and anisidine. Glucosamine sulfate is derived from crab
and shrimp. Boswellia serrata extract is derived from gum resin
and standardized to contain 70% boswellic acids. Curcuma longa
(turmeric) extract is standardized to contain 95% curcuminoids.
Vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol) is derived from purified soybean oil.
Are There Any Potential Side Effects Or
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.
