Swanson Boswellia Serrata is a dietary supplement in the composition of which there is the highest-quality extract from Boswellia Serrata, standardized for the content of boswellic acids.
The preparation is a perfect means supporting movement apparatus. It alleviates bone-joint ailments and stimulates natural processes of cartilaginous tissue regeneration. The supplement may be recommended especially to people who deal with inflammations of joints and feel discomfort in the area of skeletal system, caused by sport injuries or overstrain due to excessively intensive training.
Anti-inflammatory properties of boswellia constitute invaluable help in case of treating asthma and diseases of the intestines, induced by inflammation (Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis). In the World of science a lot has been said also about anti-cancer potential of Boswellia Serrata.
Boswellia Serrata is a tropical tree growing on dry, mountainous terrains of India and North Africa. Resin obtained from it constituted a valuable therapeutic product as early as in the ancient times. It was mainly use to reduce fever, stop diarrhea and alleviate respiratory system ailments. Modern medicine and pharmacology use Boswellia Serrata extracts most often in dysfunctions related to overloads and inflammations of movement apparatus.
Boswellic acids are responsible for therapeutic properties of Boswellia Serrata – these are organic chemical compounds belonging to the group of five-ring triterpenoids, among which the highest activity is demonstrated by acetyl-α-boswellic acid and 11-keto-β-boswellic acid.
Anti-inflammatory and anti-arthritic effect
Extracts from Boswellia Serrata resin are incredibly effective in alleviating pain in joints, bones and spine and inhibiting inflammations in the movement apparatus.
While the majority of plant extracts with similar properties are typical antioxidants reducing the excess of free radicals, which contribute to the creation of inflammations, the mechanism of Boswellia Serrata extract is different. Boswellic acids contained in the resin have a direct influence on 5-lipoxygenase enzyme, responsible for the production of leukotrienes, causing inflammations. They inhibit the synthesis of this enzyme and block its translocation.
Additionally, Boswellic acids regulate the secretion of many other inflammatory markers, such as TNF-alpha, TNF-beta and IL-1beta. Thanks to this they inhibit inflammations more effectively than other compounds.
Anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect of Boswellia Serrata is comparable to the strength and effects of drugs from the group of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. However, contrary to synthetic pharmacological products, which at the same time destroy joint cartilage, Boswellia Serrata extracts protect and nourish it. They secure glycosaminoglycans (GAG, structural base of joint cartilage) from the destructive effect of certain enzymes and improve blood supply in joints.
The effectiveness of extracts from Boswellia Serrata has been very well-documented. It has been confirmed by many studies with the participation of people suffering from spine problems, knee joint degeneration, arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
Practically in all cases it was proven that Boswellia Serrata alleviates pain, improves mobility of joints, decreases morning stiffness of joints and minimizes swellings. The treatment was very well-tolerated and did not cause any undesirable effect, which was assessed on the basis of hemogram tests, liver value tests and kidney function tests.
In double-blind test, 40 patients with bronchial asthma were treated with Boswellia Serrata extracts for 6 weeks. In as many as 70% of patients, the improvement of the state of heath was noticed – reduction of dyspnea, bronchitis, decreased number of attacks and decreased amount of eosinophils in serum. By the same token it was proven that Boswellia Serrata is a potential remedy for respiratory tract diseases. Boswellic acids are responsible for such an effect, which inhibit the creation of the products of 5-lypoxygenase. Pro-inflammatory leukotrienes, produced by 5-lypoxygenases cause bronchospasms, chemotaxis and increased permeability of vessels.
Boswellia Serrata also limits the synthesis of leukocyte elastases, which stimulates the secretion of mucus and may play a role in cystic fibrosis and chronic bronchitis pathogenesis.
The support in inflammatory intestinal diseases
Boswellia Serrata may be used in treating inflammatory intestinal diseases. It is believed that the development of inflammatory processes in the intestines is related to the increased production of leukotrienes. Boswellia Serrata is the inhibitor of 5-lipoxygenase, the key enzyme in the biosynthesis of leukotrienes.
Many studies compared the effectiveness of boswellic acids and sulfasalazine – a drug used to treat ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease. The aspects controlled in the study were among others stool qualities, colonic mucosa view watched by means of scanning electron microscopy and sections subjected to histopathological examination. In practically all patients treated with Boswellia Serrata extracts the improvement of one or more parameters was noticed. In one of the studies it was proven that among 20 patients with Crohn’s disease after 6 weeks of supplementation with Boswellia Serrata, as many as 14 patients experienced remission.
Summing up, Boswellia Serrata is a plant, safe, pro-health supplement. At the same time it is one of the strongest, natural preparations with anti-inflammatory effect. It supports the health of osteoarticular system and is recommended especially to sportsmen who expose their joints to large burden. Seniors will also benefit from supplementation, as because of age they often deal with degenerative changes causing pain and inhibiting efficient functioning.
