What is Boswellia Serrata?

Sometimes referred to as Indian frankincense, this deciduous tree is native to arid mountainous regions of India. A member of the Burseraceae family, which includes myrrh and frankincense, the plant provides a notable incense fragrance and is distinguished by its aromatic resin and oil. Like standard frankincense, Boswellia extract is collected from an incision in the trunk, with a sap-like oleoresin emerging from the tree. In long-held Ayurvedic traditions, Boswellia serrata is known as Salai guggul or Shallaki, and has been used for ages due to its health-supporting qualities. Today, science has validated many of Indian frankincense’s benefits and shown them to largely stem from its ability to modulate inflammation.**

Research has reinforced the inflammation-modulating properties of Boswellia serrata, which have been attributed to beneficial compounds called triterpenes, most notably boswellic acid. Boswellia serrata’s active compounds are believed to influence the creation of inflammatory compounds called leukotrienes. This biological action has led to Boswellia serrata’s reputation as an extract that promotes joint comfort and flexibility, particularly during the aging process. The substance is believed to have a soothing effect that may ease many of the aches associated with degenerative joint problems.**

In addition to promoting joint mobility, flexibility and comfort, the plant’s inflammation-modulating effect has shown considerable promise for helping with digestive and respiratory issues that are related to inflammation. Further research has indicated that Boswellia serrata may be linked to a beneficial effect on headaches.**

Boswellia Serrata Supplements

Boswellia serrata supplements are sourced from the resin that exudes from the trunk of the tree after it is punctured. Supplements are generally sold in capsule and tablet form, though topical creams featuring Boswellia are also available. Boswellia serrata supplements may be standardized to supply a guaranteed minimum level of active boswellic acid.**
