How is Synovi G4 different from other joint supplements?
Synovi G4 builds upon the success of the Synovi G3 matrix, a blend of various joint health ingredients, including glucosamine, manganese and green-lipped mussel, which has sold over 250 million doses. Synovi G4 is enriched with the naturally-derived ingredients turmeric, a potent antioxidant, and Boswellia serrata. Laboratory studies have shown that Turmeric and Boswellia serrata help support a healthy inflammatory response.
What is Boswellia serrata? Boswellia serrata, also known as Indian frankincense, is a large branching tree native to India, Northern Africa, and the Middle East. The tree's resin contains boswellic acids, which have shown in laboratory studies to support a healthy inflammatory response and promote joint health. Boswellia serrata may also help with occasional discomfort and joint stiffness due to daily activity.
What is Turmeric?
A plant of the ginger family native to Asia and India most commonly associated as a spice for cooking. The active component, curcumin, is a yellow phytochemical extracted from the plant's roots. It contains free radical scavenging abilities and has shown to assist in the synthesis of important cellular enzymes.
Why does Synovi G4 not contain chondroitin?
Synovi G4 is based on the joint health ingredient matrix found in Synovi G3 which contains Perna canaliculus, also known as Green-lipped mussel, found off the coastal waters of New Zealand. Perna is a source of chondroitin as well as Omega-3 fatty acids.
Why did you choose the combination of Boswellia and Turmeric?
These two ingredients were added because they are not commonly found in traditional joint supplements and are known for a variety of health benefits. A growing body of evidence indicates that both Boswellia and Turmeric may be beneficial in the support of healthy joints, including cartilage and connective tissue, as well as a healthy inflammatory response.
