Boswellia Extract, 250 mg Extract - 60 Caps

NOW Boswellia Extract is standardized to contain min. 65% Boswellic Acids, the active constituents of the herb Boswellia serrata, also known as Frankincense. Boswellia's properties have been known to herbalists and prized since antiquity and recent scientific research has validated its putative uses. Studies indicate that Boswellic Acids can help to support a healthy inflammatory response through their effects on the 5-LOX and COX-2 enzymes, as well as on other cellular signaling pathways.

Boswellia (boswellia serrata) is a tree gum resin that has multiple health benefits. Also known as frankincense, it has been burned as incense in religious and cultural ceremonies for centuries.  In today’s alternative health world boswellia is widely regarded as a potent anti-inflammatory nutrient, wherein its primary active ingredient, acetyl-11-keto-β-boswellic acid (AKBA), inhibits the inflammatory enzyme 5-lipoxygenase.

Excess 5-lipoxygenase is common in joint pain, allergies, respiratory conditions, and cardiovascular problems.  A number of new studies give insights into boswellia, a unique nutrient, even expanding its potential usefulness.

A recent review of boswellia highlighted its many uses in traditional ayurvedic medicine: arthritis, diarrhea, dysentery, ringworm, boils, fevers, skin and blood diseases, cardiovascular diseases, mouth sores, bad throat, bronchitis, asthma, cough, vaginal discharges, hair loss, jaundice, hemorrhoids, & syphilitic diseases.  Boswellia has accumulated scientific data supporting its anti-arthritic and anti-inflammatory uses, along with the ability to lower cholesterol, prevent plaque buildup, and defend your liver.
