The extract of the resin from the Boswellia serrata tree in Hervedics Boswella helps block the synthesis of 5-lipoxygenase and other inflammatory activities.9 The boswellic acids support chronic colitis, IBS, Chrohn's disease, ulcerative colits, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, cluster headaches, and asthma.10-16

As people age, systemic inflammation can inflict degenerative effects throughout the body.1-5 A primary cause of this destructive cascade is the production of cell-signaling chemicals known as pro-inflammatory cytokines. Along with these dangerous cytokines, imbalances of hormone-like messengers called prostaglandins and leukotrienes also contribute to inflammatory processes.6-8

Boswella from Hervedics is an extract of the resin of the Boswellia serrata tree which grows in India. Boswellic acids are effective at blocking the synthesis of pro-inflammatory 5-lipoxygenase products and may also mediate other inflammatory actions by inhibiting cyclooxygenases, preferentially COX-1.91-99

Studies of Boswellia have shown:

  • 70% of patients with chronic colitis went into remission using Boswellia versus only 40% using sulfasalazine.11
  • The remission rate of those using Boswellia for ulcerative colitis was 82%, nearly 110% higher rate than those using sulfasalazine.12
  • Patients with osteoarthritis had symptomatic improvement when taking Boswellia.13
  • 70% of asthma patients showed improvement when using Boswellia versus 27% in the control group.14
  • Minimal side affects were noticed with Boswellia.11

The Cleveland Clinic is currently conducting a clinical trial for the potential for anti cancer properties of Boswellia.17
