Introduction of Boswellia Serrata Extract,Boswellic Acid Boswellia , also called olibanum, is an aromatic resin obtained from trees of the genus Boswellia. It is used in incense as well as in perfumes.There are numerous species and varieties of frankincense trees, each producing a slightly different type of resin. Differences in soil and climate create even more diversity of the resin, even within the same species.
Boswellia trees are also considered unusual for their ability to grow in environments so unforgiving that they sometimes seem to grow directly out of solid rock. The trees start producing resin when they are about 8 to 10 years old.Tapping is done 2 to 3 times a year with the final taps producing the best tears due to their higher aromatic terpene, sesquiterpene and diterpene content.
Chemical composition / key active constituents In Boswellia serrata gum resin is boswellic acid which exhibits anti-inflammatory activity. The gum resin is used as an ointment for sores and has anti-inflammatory,antiatherosclero
tic and antiarthritic activities. The nonphenolic fraction of the gum resin had marked sedative and nalgesic action. The fraction potentiated secobarbitone induced hypnosis. The gum is a well known household fumigant and is used as an anti-inflammatory agent when applied externally.Internally,besides being antiarthritic, it has expectorant effects. It also reduces body weight. Pharmacology Animal studies performed in India showed ingestion of a defatted alcoholic extract of Boswellia decreased polymorphonuclear leukocyte infiltration and migration, decreased primary antibody synthesis and caused almost total inhibition of the classical complement pathway. In an in vitro study of the effects of ß-Boswellic acid on the complement system,the extract demonstrated a marked inhibitory effect on both the classical and alternate complement systems.
In vitro testing revealed Boswellia in a dose-dependent manner, blocks the synthesis of pro-inflammatory 5-lipoxygenase products, including 5- hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (5-HETE) and leukotriene B4 (LTB4), which cause bronchoconstriction, chemotaxis, and increased vascular permeability. A recent in vivo study examined Boswellia extract and ketoprofen for their effects on glycosaminoglycan metabolism. Boswellia significantly reduced the degradation of glycosaminoglycans compared to controls, whereas ketoprofen caused a reduction in total tissue glycosaminoglycan content. Remedies For It is used in rheumatic disorders. It is also used to improve appetite, osteoarthritis,rheumatoid arthritis, diarrhea, dysentery, pulmonary disease, and ringworm and in general weakness. It has an antidiarrhoeal action. The ability to inhibit 5-Lipoxygenase makes Boswellia a powerful anti-inflammatory. Boswellia is also used to treat Ulcerative Colitis. In Ayurveda, Boswellia has been used as a treatment for rheumatism, nervous system disorders, and as a topical anti-inflammatory. Dosage For rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis, 150 mg of boswellic acids are taken three times per day. As an example, if an extract contains 37.5% boswellic acids, 400 mg of the extract would be taken three times daily. In the one clinical trial to date, people with ulcerative colitis used 550 mg of boswellia extract three times per day.
