What is boswellia? Also known as Indian frankincense, boswellia is an herbal extract from the Boswellia serrata tree. It is commonly used in Ayurveda practices for asthma, coughs, wound healing and arthritis due to its anti-inflammatory effects.
Let’s take a look at the benefits of boswellia:
Research is being done to study how boswellia appears to block the allergic response that causes an asthma reaction by suppressing inflammation in the airways inhibiting the secretion of cytokins which cause inflammation.
Since boswellia reduces inflammation, it is sought for helping ease the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Since boswellia has anti-inflammatory properties, it helps ease symptoms of IBD making it beneficial for those with Crohn’s or ulcerative colitis.
As with any supplement, always check with your healthcare provider to be sure it’s safe and always look for high quality supplements such as our Naturity Premium Boswellia.
