This unusual Boswellia serrata blend is based on traditional Ayurvedic principles, to calm the fire of inflammatory joint pain. It has several ingredients which work synergistically together to enhance each other's efficacy: Bromelain taken between meals is an excellent adjunct anti-inflammatory;ginger and curcumin both magnify boswellia's effect to ease arthritis pain; glucosamine adds relief for wear-and-tear osteoarthritis. Withania, or ashwagandha, is an immune and adrenal supporter, and has long been used in Ayurvedic medicine to support joint health. We like to be sure that boswellia is standardized to contain at least 35-65% organic acids including boswellic acid.We've seen better and more enduring benefits from Boswelya Plus than plain boswellia alone.
Boswellia serrata is a large branching tree native to India. Boswellia species yield a fragrant resin with many medicinal uses, particularly anti-inflammatory. Frankincense in biblical times was an extract of Boswellia sacra, now it comes from several species including B. serrata.
Boswellia has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine. Boswellic acids, the bioactive constituents in the resin, have been shown in studies to affect key enzymes that maintain healthy connective tissues, and balance the immune response to joint wear and tear. In West Africa, the bark of Boswellia is used to treat fever, rheumatism and even depression.
Boswellic acid terpenoids have a combination of benefits that is believed to be unique to boswellia: they may maintain healthy 5-lipoxygenase enzyme activity and healthy leukotriene metabolism; and also maintain healthy human leukocyte elastase enzyme activity.
Boswellia is also effective for asthma, in studies up to 70% patients had improved breathing, less wheeze, or better peak flows. Double-blind trials have also confirmed the befits of boswellia for inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis and Crohn's. Boswellia also shows promise for possibly supporting cardiovascular function.
