Do you find that something akin to rigor mortis sets in every time you stop moving for longer than five minutes? Can you still feel that sprained ankle from that required and torturous high-school dance class? Do you need to rock back and forth three times before standing up? Then PhysiQOL™ is for you. Because despite what your platitude-giving auntie says, age is NOT just a number. Age is how good you feel. The day-to-day wear and tear on our bodies can make simply getting out of bed a challenge, let alone going for a hike, playing with grandchildren, or joining in on a round of basketball. Life shouldn’t be painful, but as we get older it takes a more and more proactive lifestyle to make that possible. Supplementation with PhysiQOL™ can help keep you moving like a healthy colon.

These components indicate that Boswellia may be useful in supporting the body's natural, healthy state free from excess inflammation.

A well-known plant thanks to its use in beer-brewing, it gets its name from the Anglo-Saxon word “hoppen,” meaning “to climb.” The flowers of hops contain copious amounts of lupulin, a soothing relaxant that acts as a nervine.

Bitters, used to help stimulate the digestive system before eating, often use hops, and some recommend drinking hops tea before meals for the same purpose.
Tinospora has been used both in TCM and Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years.
