The art of healing comes from nature – not laboratories.
This is especially true, when it comes to healing inflamed joints. Not only do you need to deal with the external physical manifestations, but it is pertinent to address the source of pain to attain a long-term effect.
Unived’s COLOX is a unique formulation with anti-inflammatory and synergistic joint protective action.
- COLOX poses a double blockade in the path of pain, inflammation and edema.
- COLOX blocks COX-2 and 5-LOX pathways – inhibiting the production of prostaglandings & leukotrines.
The creation of COLOX is inspired by nature’s powers of balanced healing.
COLOX exerts a double action in the inflammatory path by blocking both COX-2 and 5-LOX, enzymes that are responsible for the synthesis of prostaglandins and leukotrienes, respectively. Both prostaglandins and leukotrines are formed when arachidonic acid is released and they play a key role in generating an inflammatory response in the body. COLOX builds this double blockage and addresses pain, inflammation and edema in a holistic and composite manner.
Daily consumption of COLOX as per the suggested dosage, gives you nearly 2 grams of standardized phytochemical extracts. Each serving gives you 526 mg of Boswellia serrata, 75 mg of Curcuma longa and 300 mg of Withania somnifera.
As a dietary supplement, adults take 2 capsules twice a day, after meals or as directed by your physician. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, consult your physician before taking this product.
