What is Boswellia?
Taken from the Boswellia serrata tree, Boswellia is an herbal extract that is also commonly referred to as Indian frankincense.
Resin from the extract of Boswellia trees has been used for hundreds of years in folk medicine. It is widely considered to be an effective natural treatment for chronic inflammatory illnesses as well as for a number of other health problems. Some research shows that boswellic acid can prevent the development of leukotrienes in the body. These are molecules that cause inflammation. Acids in the Boswellia plant inhibit 5-lipoxygenase (5-LO), the enzyme that produces leukotriene. Because Boswellia is an effective anti-inflammatory, it can work as a powerful painkiller.
Boswellia for Arthritis
A report for a medical journal concluded that Boswellia could be an effective treatment for arthritis sufferers after a study of 30 people resulted in a decrease in knee pain for all participants. Participants also reported an increase in knee flexion and walking ability after using Boswellia.
Other studies conducted since have demonstrated similar results, Osteoarthritis patients in a 90-day experiment reported a significant reduction in knee pain whilst using a Boswellia-based product compared to a lesser dosage and placebo. It also helped reduce the levels of a cartilage-degrading enzyme.
Boswellia could interfere with and decrease the effects of prescribed anti-inflammatory medications. If you are already taking medication to treat inflammation, contact your GP before use.
To put it simply, joints are the parts of your body where your bones meet. Joints allow your skeleton the flexibility it needs to move. Our joints are commonplace to feel aches due to the pressure exerted on them daily.
Joint pain refers to discomfort and soreness that can occur in any of the body’s joints. It can result from a variety of illnesses and injuries but is also a common symptom of arthritis. Most people experience joint pain at some point in their lives and luckily it can generally be treated at home with natural remedies and rest.
