Description

Boswellia, also known as Indian Frankincense, is an herbal extract taken from the Boswellia serrata tree.

Resin made from Boswellia extract has been used for centuries in Asian and African folk medicine. It’s believed to treat chronic inflammatory illnesses as well as a number of other health conditions.

Studies show that Boswellia may reduce inflammation and may be useful in treating the following conditions:

  • Osteoarthritis (OA)
  • Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)
  • Asthma
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)

Other benefits may include:

  • Boosts Immune system
  • Prevention of infection
  • Accelerated wound healing
  • Anti-anxiety effects – Re-balance stress hormones ( cortisol )
  • Anti-carcinogenic / cytotoxic properties

Because Boswellia is an effective anti-inflammatory, it can be an effective painkiller and may prevent the loss of cartilage.

Some studies have found that it may even be useful in treating certain cancers, such as leukemia and breast cancer.

General dosing guidelines suggest taking 300–500 milligrams (mg) by mouth two to three times a day. 

Warning: Boswellia may stimulate blood flow in the uterus and pelvis. It can accelerate menstrual flow and may induce miscarriage in pregnant women.

Other possible side effects of Boswellia include:

  • Nausea
  • Acid reflux
  • Diarrhea
  • Skin rashes

Boswellia extract may also interact with medications, including ibuprofen, aspirin, and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
