How It Works:
Boswellia is a moderate to large branching tree found throughout India‚ Northern Africa‚ and the Middle East. Strips of bark are peeled away from the tree‚ yielding a gummy resin. Also known as frankincense‚ extracts of this gummy resin have been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. Modern research has confirmed the effectiveness of boswellia for healthy lung and bronchial function‚ as well as intensive intestinal support.
Respiratory and intestinal health concerns are linked by a common underlying factor – unbalanced leukotriene activity. Boswellia exerts its beneficial effects via modulation of the 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX) pathway‚ balancing leukotriene levels‚ and by supporting a healthy inflammation response.
BosPro™ features a unique extract of boswellia called BosPure®. BosPure® Boswellia is high in naturally-occurring AKBA (acetyl-11-keto-?-boswellic acid)‚ the most active component in boswellia. This differs from unstandardized boswellia extracts‚ which can have as little as 1% of AKBA. BosPure® Boswellia is also purified to reduce ?-boswellic acid (BBA)‚ a boswellic acid that actually promotes inflammation‚ to less than 5%. Unstandardized boswellia products can contain as much as 25% BBA. By screening out the BBA and standardizing the AKBA content‚ BosPure® Boswellia provides much greater benefits.
1) Intestinal Health:
In a recent study conducted in Germany and Austria‚ participants were given either boswellia or a conventional intervention. While the results of the study did not achieve full statistical significance‚ they did favor boswellia. The authors concluded that boswellia performed as well as the conventional intervention‚ and without the adverse effects. In fact‚ considering safety and efficacy‚ boswellia showed a much better benefit-to-risk ratio.
In another clinical study‚ patients were either given 350 mg of boswellia extract three times daily or a conventional intervention. The results for boswellia were very positive. Of the 20 patients given boswellia‚ 18 showed significant support for intestinal health. An earlier study showed similar results‚ again positive for boswellia. The authors concluded that boswellia could be an effective intervention because of this – and the lack of side effects.
2) Respiratory Health:
In a double-blind‚ placebo-controlled‚ 6-week clinical study‚ boswellia was tested in 40 individuals. Participants were given either a 300 mg preparation of boswellia or placebo 3 times daily for 6 weeks. 70% of participants reported marked benefits for healthy lung function and airway health compared to 27% in the control group.
In another clinical study‚ boswellia was one of three botanicals in a combination that showed similar results. In this placebo-controlled study‚ 63 patients were divided into two groups; one received the herbal combination [boswellia‚ licorice root (Glycyrrhiza glabra) and turmeric root (Curcuma longa)]‚ the other a placebo. At the end of the 4 week study‚ the herbal group showed a statistically significant support for a healthy inflammation response.
BosPro™ uses the clinically studied‚ uniquely standardized boswellia extract – BosPure® – to promote a healthy inflammation response‚ modulate the 5-LOX pathway‚ and balance leukotriene levels. This powerful‚ professional formula utilizes the best form of boswellia and combines it with cutting-edge science to help you provide results for your patients.
