Vitacost 5-Loxin®-AKBA Boswellia Serrata Extract -- 150 mg per serving - 120 Capsules
It took about three weeks to "kick in," but the pain and stiffness I would wake up with, in my hand, has steadily lessened since I began taking your Vitacost 5-Loxin®-AKBA Boswellia Serrata Extract. I estimate it reduced it by at least 75% and it disappears entirely within minutes after getting up. I take it, as suggested, two capsules, twice a day, with meals, along with Boswellia and turmeric capsules. It has made an enormous difference.

Still checking it out.
I was taking Turmeric daily when I ran in to Boswellia AKBA. I am a great fan of Frankincense and when I read up on this special type of frankincense I had to try it.
So far there have been no side effects, my joints are still mobile and pain-free as much as possible so I believe long-lasting effects are slow to come, especially when we talk about reconstructive healing of degenerated joints.

I didn't see a difference with this particular supplement.

Works great! No upset stomach!
Mild formula is very effective! I use it daily and have reordered a few times already!

It's hard to know with joint & arthritus supplements if they are helping or not. I took glucosomine for years and then stopped and noticed no difference whatsoever. Now I am taking 5-Loxin but no dramatic change. However, I am certainly not experiencing any increase in arthritus pain and I have experienced no negative side-effects whatever. I have not been taking it long enough to see if it will help after a long hike or other activity that generally produces inflamation. I started with 150 mg per day but have since increased it to 300 mg per day.
