Boswellin® Super is a highly concentrated and pure form of the ancient Indian herb Frankincense (Boswellia serrata). Studies have shown that Boswellia serrata has anti-inflammatory capabilities much like those of conventional non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) used for inflammatory conditions. Long term use of Boswellia serrata does not lead to irritation or ulceration of the stomach like traditional NSAIDs. Boswellic acids have been found effective in applications alleviating rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
Of the compounds composing Boswellin super, AKBBA is reported to be the most potent anti-inflammatory fraction. Boswellin super consists of 30% AKBBA (Acetyl-11-β-boswellic acid). AKBBA is reported to be active against a large number of inflammatory diseases, including cancer, arthritis, chronic colitis, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s Disease, and bronchial asthma.
