Description: Curcumax Pro from Integrative Therapeutics is said to offer a safe, effective, and affordable solution for occasional pain due to overuse. Curcumax Pro delivers clinically studied levels of two herbs –turmeric and boswellia — shown to improve comfort and mobility. Its features include Meriva: a unique turmeric extract with 18 times the bioavailability of curcumin and 29 times the bioavailability of total curcuminoids versus other turmeric forms; LOXIN: a potent, fast-acting boswellia extract said to improve range of motion, with results as early as seven days; and Isoquercetin: an exclusive, natural form of quercetin that is up to 5 times more bioavailable than quercetin.
