    Regarding Kaprex, Dr. McKoy says research suggests that components of hops, such as reduced isoalpha acids, may inhibit the formation of inflammation-causing prostaglandins. Oleanolic acid is derived from olive leaf extract. Research indicates that it may support joint health as a pain reliever as well as protect against potential damage to your stomach lining. Rosemary leaf extract stimulates circulation and eases pain by increasing your blood supply. Kaprex is manufactured by a company called Metagenics and may be purchased online.
