Function: Herbal support for joint discomfort
*Boswellia serrata is an Ayurvedic herb that has a long history of use for connective tissue and joint support. Boswellic acids, the active terpenoid constituents of boswellia, may reduce the activity of the enzyme 5-lipoxygenase, maintaining healthy leukotriene metabolism. In addition, boswellic acids may reduce the synthesis of the human leukocyte elastase enzyme. The combination of these two actions is believed to be unique to boswellia. As a result of its effect on 5-lipoxygenase, boswellia also plays a key role in supporting colon health.
Boswellia extract, standardized to contain 70% boswellic acids, promotes healthy joint, connective tissue and colon function primarily by maintaining normal leukotriene levels.
