Boswellia Serrata Extract

What is Boswellia serrata extract?

Widely known as shallaki, the gum is produced by Boswellia serrata, a branding tree native to India; used in Ayurveda for its anti-inflammatory and pain related complications in arthritis/osteoarthritis, asthma, bronchitis. The extract is rich in boswellic acids, which belongs to pentacyclic triterpenic acid class of active compounds. The extract works its magic by reducing the pain and inflammation during arthritis/osteoarthritis complications; protecting bones and joints from degradation.

What are the causes of bone-related complications?

Bone health complications associated with Men
Testosterone is the hormone responsible for bone strength in men. In aging men, the levels of testosterone may decline due to the natural ageing process, defect in absorption and availability, decreased physical activity, decreased calcium and vitamin D intake & absorption, defect in healing process of bone caused by injuries, decreased collagen mass in bone, and associated inflammation process are possible reasons for bone health complications in men. All the above factors may lead to bone disorders and associated complications like arthritis, osteoarthritis, and physical disability in men.

Bone health complications associated with Women
Women are more vulnerable than men in terms of bone health complications because their aging process different from men. Estrogen is the hormone responsible for calcium absorption and maintenance of bone strength in women. Women as they age, will have challenge of managing menopause; losing estrogen as natural process of PMS, and their process of function. This process of PMS will induce/cascade the bone loss process, pain, inflammation, arthritis, and osteoarthritis.

Health Benefits of Boswellia Serrata Extract

Reduced pain/inflammation associated with Arthritis and Osteoarthritis

The findings from a number of studies conducted on animals describes that the extract reduces inflammation markers Like TNF-α associated with arthritis & osteoarthritis, while also reducing the inflammation, pain, stiffness and improving the functional capacity in obese arthritis animals. Thus, the extract can be used in arthritis/osteoarthritis conditions for reducing pain & inflammatory complications.

Reduced inflammation in Asthma, Bronchitis and Respiratory Health

In numerous studies, it is found that the extract supplementation reduces the airway hyper-responsiveness, inflammation, and is helpful in reducing the inflammatory complications associated with immunity, asthma, and bronchitis.

Improves bone strength

According to various studies, after supplementation with boswellic acids, it is found that the bone density is increased, bone building markers are increased, improvement in calcium absorption, reduced inflammation. Thus, the extract is useful in reducing bone loss, inflammation complications associated with bone density health in arthritic and osteoporotic conditions.

Reduced ageing of skin

The various studies shows that the application of extract either topically or by oral supplementation improves the collagen in skin, reduce the wrinkles in ageing skin and reduce the inflammation associated with skin health complications. Thus, the extract is useful in managing the inflammatory/collagen degradation skin complications associated with photo-ageing & dermal health complications.

Human Clinical Studies:
Benefits of Boswellia Serrata Extract

According to the human clinical trials study, the supplementation of boswellia extract to arthritic & osteoarthritis patients found that the inflammation & swelling is reduced, joint flexibility, walking & physical movements improved. In some human studies, the supplementation of boswellia extract to patients suffering from asthma & respiratory complications found that the inflammation associated with airway complications were reduced after taking boswellia extract.

Extraction process of Boswellia Serrata Extract

Boswellia serrata gum is sourced as per our quality monitoring process. The dried gum is extracted by alcoholic media; the extracted liquid is concentrated to semi-solid after removing alcohol and it is further processed and precipitated as enriched boswellic acids. The precipitated product is dried under controlled temperature to get a free flowing powder. This powder extract is analyzed by HPLC instrumental analysis for total boswellic acids and also by titration method for total organic acids and other quality parameters as per the specifications.
