Boswellia serratia is a small deciduous tree native to India, the Middle East, and North Africa. It produces an oleoresin-gum that oozes from the trunk when cut. Also known as frankincense, it resembles the gum that oozes from the bark of evergreen trees here in North America. Its sustainably harvested gum contains active ingredients (boswellic acids) that have been used for thousands of years to fight against inflammation and relieve pain related to osteoarthritis. It also has a rich history in Ayurvedic medicine for treatment of blood impurities, ringworm, and boils; to detoxify the liver; and as an antifungal. Vitazan Professionals Boswellia Extract is potency-validated to contain 35% boswellic acid. The biological action of boswellic acid is to interfere with target molecules that pave the pathways of inflammation. This critical compound is renowned for relief of acute and chronic inflammation. Clinical trials have additionally shown it to be effective for relief of arthritis-related pain and stiffness of the knee. Pilot trials also proved promising for autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. Boswellia extract has long been a critical nutrient in our pain and inflammation-management products such as Can-Arrest and Joint Pain Relief. As a single ingredient, it can deliver targeted action in a therapeutic dose, for less pain and increased range of motion. Pain-free mobility, in turn, can be leveraged to support an active lifestyle that can benefit virtually every aspect of your health.
