WHITE WILLOW BARK (SALIX ALBA) is traditionally used to treat pain. The efficacy of this botanical is due mainly to the proportion of salicin present. This formulation contains a standardized extract of 15% salicin, with a total level of 240 mg per serving. This is the amount shown in the research to be effective at reducing low back pain. The salicin, a precursor to salicylic acid, works as an antipyretic, anti-inflammatory and as an analgesic.
BOSWELLIA (BOSWELLIA SERRATA) has been used in traditional Indian medicine for chronic rheumatic inflammation. Boswellic acids have been shown to inhibit 5-lipoxygenase, the enzyme in leukotriene biosynthesis. It is this property along with its ability to inhibit both the classical and alternative complement pathways that account for its anti-inflammatory properties.
