Also known as Indian Frankincense, Boswellia serrata is a botanical with a long history of use in Ayurveda, the ancient medicine system of India. It has been traditionally used to relieve inflammation, particularly of the joints. Studies have shown that boswellia reduces inflammation and pain in rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis and has also been shown to be effective in reducing the severity of inflammatory intestinal disorders.
Boswellia extracts are safer and more potent than conventional non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Supplementation with boswellia extract has even been shown to prevent the degradation of glycosaminoglycan, one of the major components of cartilage, which cannot be said about standard NSAID medications. Interestingly, boswellia can also be used for respiratory support, as it has been shown to reduce mucous secretions in the lungs. Applications include emphysema, cystic fibrosis and chronic bronchitis among others.
