7 Benefits of taking boswellia serrata extract

More and more people are looking for natural supplements to stay healthy. However, the reality is that despite helping us treat pain and/or disease, many drugs that we find on today’s market contain harmful chemicals.

 Boswellia serrata, also known as frankincense, is a native tree to India that produces special compounds containing strong anti-inflammatory effects. Its extract has been used for thousands of years to naturally treat inflammatory disorders, even long before inflammation-lowering medications and supplements existed.

The gum oleoresin harvested from the boswellia tree consists of essential oils, gum, and a group of triterpenoids. The terpenoid portion contains the boswellic acids that have been shown to be the active constituents in Boswellia.

Over the last few years, boswellia has attracted much attention in the global medical community. So what are the specific benefits of taking Premium Boswellia Serrata Extract that has made this natural solution so popular?

 1. Helps lower inflammation

Terpenes and boswellic acids are some of the extracts found in the Boswellia tree. These extracts have anti-inflammatory properties which inhibit a pro-inflammatory enzyme called 5-Lipoxygenase. By inhibiting this enzyme, boswellia effectively blocks leukotriene synthesis. Leukotrienes are inflammatory mediators of the human body, which play a major role in inflammation-related diseases including joint problems, asthma, allergies, intestinal disorders, cancer, and lung related disease.

Other chemical compounds have been identified in boswellia that naturally reduce the inflammatory response by controlling T-lymphocytes, especially one called AKBA. AKBA has proven to be effective in helping to fight against inflammatory diseases, such as arthritis, bronchial asthma, and chronic colitis.

Although it works similarly to NSAID pain relievers, AKBA’s mechanism of action is very different because it targets different inflammatory enzymes, making it easier to preserve the integrity of the stomach and gut lining. Being all-natural, high-quality boswellic extracts cause less physical side effects and fewer risks of intoxication.

 3. Helps fight cancer

Although not officially proven, boswellic extracts appear to help fight cancer. Due to antiproliferative functions that inhibit angiogenesis and cell invasiveness, boswellia helps target cancer cells while preserving healthy cells, and nowadays is taken by many people around the world in conjunction with traditional cancer treatments.

 One of the most challenging things about battling cancer can be suffering the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation, which leave the body very vulnerable to possible infections. However, boswellia extracts can help fight these complications by influencing our genes to promote healing.

 4. Helps reduce asthma symptoms

Boswellia may play an important role in the reduction of leukotrienes, which are inflammatory mediators that cause the bronchial muscles to contract. A study of the herb's effect on bronchial asthma found that patients who took boswellia experienced a reduction in asthma symptoms and the number of attacks.

 5. Helps prevent autoimmune disease

Boswellia extracts seem to control the productions of immunoglobulins, which are antibodies made by the immune system to fight potential threats like bacteria, viruses, toxins, and fungi. By controlling the production of antibodies, this plant may help prevent autoimmune diseases, such as Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, and rheumatoid arthritis.

 6. Helps reduce joint and arthritis pain

Many studies have found that boswellia is an effective treatment of the pain and inflammation caused by arthritis and osteoarthritis. Boswellic extracts can help reduce pain, swelling, and ease trouble moving.

The anti-inflammatory, anti-arthritic, and analgesic activities of boswellia can also make it a promising treatment for decreasing knee pain, increasing knee flexion, and increasing walking distances in those prone to frequent swelling in their joints.

 7. Helps enhance mood

Another benefit of this amazing herb is promoting mood enhancement and a feeling of well-being. In fact, some historical sources, say that this herb was used as a psychoactive substance during religious rituals because of its abilities to enhance spirituality.

Some studies have shown that boswellia has an active component called incensole acetate, which has antidepressant and anti-anxiety effects by lowering inflammatory reactions, especially those that target the brain and speed up cognitive decline.

Boswellia serrata is currently being rediscovered as an extremely effective and viable option when it comes to fighting inflammation and pain.
