Boswellia Benefits and its Anti-Inflammatory Effect

Are you looking to offer customers a multi-action supplement than may actually make a difference in their health? Well, Boswellia serrata, aka Indian frankincense, might be your next main ingredient.

Available in different supplement formats, Boswellia extract has been used for centuries in African and Asian folk medicine, believed to hold healing properties—one being the ability to help relieve chronic inflammation.

What's Anti-Inflammatory Good For?


Leukotrienes are molecules that have been observed to cause inflammation, and may spark asthma symptoms. The good news is that Boswellic acid has proven itself to help prevent the formation of leukotrienes in the body, making it a potentially good option for those with asthma.

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)

Boswellia serrata was found in studies to aid in the reduction of RA joint swelling. Some studies provide evidence that this herbal extract interferes with the autoimmune process, making it a promising therapy for RA. Continued research supports the anti-inflammatory and immune-balancing effects of Boswellia.

Osteoarthritis (OA)

In a study published in the journal Phytomedicine, 30 subjects with OA-related knee pain received Boswellia supplements and reported a decrease in that pain. These subjects also reported an increase in knee flexion and how far they could walk. Like RA, continued research supports the use of this herbal supplement for OA as it promotes increased physical ability.

Considering that over 32.5 million American adults deal with osteoporosis, think of what your private label Boswellia product could do!

Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBDs)

Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are just two inflammatory bowel diseases on which Boswellia extract can have a positive impact. While experts are just now learning the herb’s scope of benefits on an inflamed bowel, a study compared H15, a special Boswellia extract, to the anti-inflammatory prescription drug called mesalamine. Results showed that the extract could be effective in alleviating symptoms of Chrohn’s and ulcerative colitis, and could possibly do more.
