Boswellia Is a Herbal Powerhouse

For centuries, the Indian Ayurvedic tradition has used Boswellia serrata, also known as frankincense, for its wide-ranging health benefits. Only recently have Western scientists begun to explore and confirm these myriad benefits. Here's what you need to know about this powerful herbal extract.

What Is Boswellia?

Boswellia is a tree that grows in northeast Africa and the Arabic peninsula. The resin of the tree is harvested and used to make medicine. Boswellia contains compounds such as beta-boswellic acid and acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid, which are thought to be responsible for its wide range of health benefits.

Health Benefits of Boswellia

Boswellia has been shown to be effective in treating a number of inflammatory conditions, including:

  • • Arthritis: Several studies have shown that boswellia can help reduce inflammation and pain in people with arthritis, especially osteoarthritis. One study found that a specific formulation of boswellia (5-Loxin®) was able to reduce arthritis pain by 26% after six weeks of use.
  • • Asthma: Research suggests that boswellia may help reduce asthma symptoms by reducing inflammation in the airways. In one study, people with asthma who took boswellia for eight weeks had significantly less need for asthma medication than those who didn't take the herb.
  • • Crohn's disease: A small study found that boswellia was able to improve symptoms of Crohn's disease, including abdominal pain and diarrhea. Participants in the study took 1,200 mg of boswellia three times per day for eight weeks.
  • • Ulcerative colitis: In a small study, people with ulcerative colitis who took boswellia had fewer symptoms and less inflammation than those who didn't take the herb. Participants in the study took 500 mg of boswellia three times per day for six weeks.

If you're looking for a natural way to treat inflammatory conditions such as arthritis or asthma, boswellia may be worth considering. Be sure to talk to your doctor first though, as boswellia may interact with certain medications and may not be suitable for everyone.

Suggested Usage: Take 1-2 capsules 1 to 3 times daily, preferably with food.
