NOW® Foods Boswellia Extract is a standardised extract of Boswellia serrata, also known as Frankincense, a resin that has been used by traditional Ayurvedic herbalists for centuries. Boswellia's bioactive constituents, including boswellic acid, exhibit broad health-promoting effects, particularly supporting the immune and skeletal systems.
Boswellic acids have a pronounced anti-inflammatory effect, comparable to the anti-inflammatory effect of Ibuprofen. They reduce catabolic processes in connective tissue and protect joint cartilage from the destructive effects of certain enzymes. They improve blood supply to joints affected by inflammation. They reduce swelling, relieve pain and improve joint mobility. Extracts extracted from Boswellia serrata have been clinically tested and are used in osteoarthritis and joint function, especially for osteoarthritis of the knee. The Committee for Scientific and Industrial Research has conducted studies that have shown anti-inflammatory effects and have now been used in the treatment of rheumatism. Studies have also shown that it has no side effects.
