What Is Boswellia Serrata?

Boswellia, also known as frankincense, is an aromatic tree species found growing throughout arid regions in the Middle East. The Boswellia tree is well equipped for surviving the harsh desert. It produces a sticky resin rich in essential oils. These oils keep the plant cool by evaporating under the scorching sun. This resin is also a popular supplement for its long list of benefits on the human body.
Boswellia supplements are used for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. Traditionally, the resin was used to treat arthritis, digestive problems, infections, and liver disorders.

The Science Behind Boswellia Serrata

Boswellia resin is rich in bioactive compounds — none as highly regarded as the Boswellic acids.
The most abundant of the Boswellic acids is something known as AKBA — which stands for acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid. Over the past couple of decades, there’s been an increasing interest in this compound by scientific researchers looking for new forms of treatment.
During this time, we’ve learned a lot about the benefits of Boswellia overall.
 
1. Inflammation
Boswellia has a lot to offer the human body — primarily revolving around its powerful anti-inflammatory effects.
Inflammation is an incredibly complicated process, involving the orchestration of dozens of inflammatory messengers, immune cells, and enzymes.
Two enzymes, COX and 5-LOX, act as regulators for the entire process. They’re tasked with manufacturing the chemicals that make inflammation happen.
Boswellia can inhibit these enzymes — effectively bringing the inflammatory process to a halt. Its anti-inflammatory effects are one of the main reasons why Boswellia has so many uses.
Inflammation has been shown throughout a body of scientific research to play a key role in conditions such as:
• Depression
• Dementia
• Alzheimer's Disease
• Arthritis
• Atherosclerosis
• Heart disease
• Diabetes
 
2. Antioxidant
Free radicals are abundant in our environment. We breathe them in, absorb them through the skin, and consume them in our diet. We even create our own oxidative byproducts from normal cellular function.
These oxidative compounds wreak havoc on the body if left unchecked. They dismantle the molecules that make up our cells — eventually causing them to break down and die.
The body has antioxidant systems in place to protect us from this damage — however, in many cases it isn’t strong enough to keep up with the sheer number of these compounds in our environments, and in our bloodstream.
One of the most profound benefits of Boswellia is the high concentration of antioxidant compounds in the resin. They work by taking the hit from the free radicals so they can’t go on to damage our important cells.
Antioxidants are extremely versatile in their effects. They’re often used to speed muscle recovery after a workout, support cognitive function well into old age, and protect us from the harmful effects of environmental toxins and free-radicals.  
 
3. Cognitive Health
The Boswellic acids in Boswellia have the unique ability to cross the blood-brain barrier. This allows the herb to deliver its beneficial effects directly within the brain — lowering inflammation, protecting the delicate neurons from oxidative stress, and more.
Although there’s no evidence that Boswellia improves cognitive function in the short-term, it's suspected to offer profound benefits over the long-term through its protective effects.
People around the world are taking this supplement as a supportive agent for optimal cognitive health — especially during times of excessive stress or head injuries, and for the elderly.

Is Bowellia Serrata The Supplement For Me?

Boswellia is a broad acting supplement with many different uses.
Where it shines above the crowd is with inflammation. The unique ability to block key inflammatory regulators gives it powerful benefits.
People suffering from joint pain, digestive tract dysfunctions, and muscle and joint injuries should be considering Boswellia more seriously.
The cognitive supportive effects make it useful for people looking to support their mood and protect the brain and spinal cord from age-related cognitive decline.
Most people use Boswellia in the short-term the same way they would an Aspirin — which uses the same mechanism for stopping inflammation.

ENHANCING YOUR BOSWELLIA SERRATA SUPPLEMENT

There are a few other supplements you can combine with your Boswellia Serrata to achieve an even greater benefit...

1. For Inflammation

There’s no doubt that Boswellia is one of the best natural anti-inflammatories we have, but there is another with a similar level of benefit - CBD (cannabidiol).
CBD is one of the active constituents of the hemp plant (Cannabis sativa). It’s also a powerful anti-inflammatory compound that works through different mechanisms to boswellia. Combining these supplements together gives you a greater range of anti-inflammatory effects.
Boswellia blocks inflammation primarily through the enzymes 5-LOX and COX, while CBD exerts most of its effect through TNF-alpha and other cellular messengers.

2. For Cognitive Support

Boswellia is great for protecting cognitive function long-term but lacks many of the immediate benefits other supplements can offer.
This is why a lot of people choose to combine their Boswellia supplementation with L-Theanine - an amino acid isomer from green tea (Camellia sinensis) with a series of cognitive-enhancing benefits.
L-Theanine does many things in the brain, but the most important is its ability to improve blood flow to the brain. Not only does this provide immediate (albeit subtle) improvements to cognition, it may also improve the efficiency of Boswellia by allowing more of the active constituents to enter the brain in the first place.
Both of these supplements are popular supplements for slowing the onset of age-related memory loss and cognitive decline and are safe to consume over long periods of time.

3. For Joint Pain

There are a lot of causes for joint pain, but they can almost always be simplified with two key processes. Inflammation in the joint (either from immune activity or traumatic injury) causes immediate pain and redness. If the inflammation persists for too long, it will eventually cause the joint tissue to begin breaking down. As the protective layers of cartilage are lost during the process, the bone will begin rubbing against each other - resulting in more inflammation and faster breakdown.
Stopping this process involves two things - stopping the pain and reducing inflammation.
CBD Oil is one of the best supplements we have for this because it achieves both of these goals at the same time.
CBD stands for cannabidiol - it’s one of the primary active compounds in the hemp plant. This compound blocks pain transmission from going to the brain (through TRPV1 and mu-opioid receptors) and inhibits over a dozen inflammatory markers involved with joint pain and inflammation. It’s a great supplement to pair with boswellia for this application.

Good service, supplements seem to be working!

I recently purchased this supplements for the first time. They seem to be working already and the service was good. It is a bit early to give it a five star, maybe next time!
