Phyto UltraComfort is scientifically formulated to support musculoskeletal comfort by supporting healthy enzyme and immune mediator activities, thereby reducing inflammatory pain.
Willow bark has a long history of traditional use for musculoskeletal comfort. Its analgesic actions are due to salicin, a natural source of salicylic acid (a compound similar to acetylsalicylic acid, the active ingredient in aspirin). Willow bark also helps to maintain healthy prostaglandin metabolism and blood flow. Boswellia serrata is an Ayurvedic herb that has a long history of use for connective tissue and joint support. Research shows that boswellic acids, the active terpenoid constituents of boswellia, are particularly supportive in maintaining healthy 5-lipoxygenase enzyme activity and leukotriene metabolism to counter inflammation and maintain tissue comfort. Curcumin maintains healthy cyclooxygenase-2 enzyme activity while supporting healthy prostaglandin, leukotriene and thromboxane metabolism - substances involved in the inflammatory response. Devil’s claw promotes both healthy cyclooxygenase-2 and 5-lipoxygenase enzyme activity to reduce pain and promote musculoskeletal comfort and function. DL-Phenylalanine supports enkephalins, naturally occurring opioid-like peptides that bind to the body’s opioid receptors to elicit a powerful analgesic (pain-killing) effect.
