What Is Boswellia Extract?

It is a product obtained from the plant Indian frankincense. It has been used traditionally across African and Asian medicine for osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and many other inflammatory conditions.

Other names of this ingredient include Boswellia extract, Boswellia serrata standardized extract, 5-Loxin, Boswellic acids, Indian Frankincense, and Boswellia serrata resin extract.

Boswellia extract has a whitish to light brown powder appearance and is generally insoluble in water.

Active Ingredients in Boswellia Plants

Based on chemical analysis research, this extract contains various monoterpenes, diterpenes, tetracyclic triterpene acids, and four major pentacyclic triterpenic acids.

The main active ingredients in Boswellia Serrata are Boswellic Acid and 3-O-acetyl-11-keto-ß-boswellic acid or AKBA. Boswellia Serrata Extract contains about 9.68% β-Boswellic acid. Its AKBA content is about 7.0% in its resin and 1.37% in its epidermis.

The compound AKBA in Boswellia serrata is proven to possess powerful anti-inflammatory effects. Hence, it is useful for several inflammatory health conditions involving the gastrointestinal tract, the respiratory system, and the musculoskeletal system.

The most common form of the compound is Boswellia serrata extract standardized 30% AKBA powder.

Boswellic Acid VS AKBA

Both Boswellic Acid and AKBA are known to contribute to many benefits associated with the use of Boswellia extract. While the benefits of AKBA mainly revolve around its anti-inflammatory properties, Boswellic Acid is known for its anti-cancer properties.

What Is The Boswellia Serrata Powder Manufacturing Process?

Boswellia Extract is usually manufactured from the gum resin of Boswellia serrata. Processes involved in its manufacture include crushing of the raw material and extraction of the crushed lumps, removal of the insoluble materials, concentrating the extract, basifying the syrupy material, extraction of the solution with chlorinated or non-polar solvents, washing the precipitate with water, and drying the fraction to obtain the desired product.

What Ingredients Can Use With Boswellia Extract Powder?

Boswellia Serrata and Turmeric

Turmeric is another powerful anti-inflammatory product that is used in the management of various joint inflammatory conditions. In one study, it was concluded that the combination of Boswellia and Turmeric can make treatment for osteoarthritis and other inflammatory joint conditions more effective than the products on their own.

Boswellia Serrata with Bioperine

Bioperine is a patented black pepper extract proven to enhance the absorption of the main compounds in a product. Based on studies, adding Bioperine to Boswellia Extract may enhance absorption and increase the bioavailability of the active ingredients of the product. Thus, the combination of the said products is recommended.

How Does Boswellia Extract Work?

Experts say that Boswellia Extract helps control inflammation by influencing the release of certain enzymes responsible for inflammatory reactions such as muscle contraction. The product helps reduce the production of leukotrienes which causes the contraction of bronchial muscles during asthmatic attacks. This same mechanism is believed to apply in the action of Boswellia Extract in joint inflammatory conditions.
