This liquid herbal remedy contains only 100% natural, human-grade ingredients:
- Uncaria tomentosa (Cats claw) – a South American herb with claw-like barbs which allow the plant to climb. Shown to exert a potent anti-inflammatory effect, making it particularly useful in joint and muscle pain.
- Curcuma long (Turmeric) – has a long history as a medicinal herb in Chinese and Indian medicine. Science has borne out its traditional use as an anti-inflammatory. The anti-inflammatory effect of turmeric is mainly due to its major constituent, curcumin. Curcumin is a volatile oil which has been shown to exert an anti-inflammatory effect equal to cortisone and phenylbutazone, with none of the toxicity problems associated with these pharmaceutical drugs. Turmeric is also a potent digestive aid, protecting and repairing the stomach lining. This action can be useful when there has been a history of using anti-inflammatory drugs which have the potential to erode the stomach lining.
- Boswellia Serrata (Boswellia) – also known as Indian Frankincense. research suggests that the potent anti-inflammatory effect of boswellia is more effective than phenylbutazone. Boswellia also improves blood supply to arthritic joints, thus effecting better and faster repair of damaged areas.
- Scutellaria baicalensis (Chinese skullcap or Huang Qin) – appears to exerts a potent anti-inflammatory effect. This action seems to be due to the inhibiting effect Chinese Skullcap has on the release of inflammatory leukotrines and prostaglandins. Initial research into its anti-inflammatory effect is comparable to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, with none of the side effects associated with these drugs.
Easy to use: add drops from the dropper bottle to water, food or treats.
Although evidence does not suggest any problems, it is felt that due to the presence of flavonoids in Chinese skullcap, it would be prudent to check with your vet or a qualified herbalist before using with prescribed anticoagulants.
