Boswellia Serrata Extract

Boswellia is known for its fragrant resin which has many pharmacological uses, particularly as anti-inflammatories. Boswellia serrata is a plant that produces Indian frankincense, Salai, referred to in Sanskrit as shallaki and in Latin as Olibanum Indicum. The plant is native to much of India and the Punjab region that extends into Pakistan. The gum resin called frankincense was one of the gifts the wise men brought to Jesus.

It has been used for hundreds of years for the treatment of arthritis. Extracts of Boswellia serrata have been clinically studied for osteoarthritis and joint function, particularly for osteoarthritis of the knee, with research showing a slight improvement of both pain and function. Positive effects of Boswellia in some chronic inflammatory diseases including rheumatoid arthritis, bronchial asthma, osteoarthritis, ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease have been reported.
