Boswellia is a resin derived from the tree, Boswellia serrat also known as frankincense and more commonly used as incense sticks. The resin has been used medicinally for thousands of years as both an analgesic and anti-inflammatory for conditions like asthma and osteoarthritis, with these effects taking as little as a week to occur. . In one study of patients with asthma, 70 percent of those who took 300 mg of boswellia three times daily showed significant improvement in the symptoms and signs of asthma, such as difficulty in breathing and the number of attacks. Other studies found the herb helps ease pain, reduce swelling, and improve mobility in people with osteoarthritis, with reports of a reduction in arthritis symptoms by 45 to 67 percent. Because of its powerful anti-inflammatory effects, boswellia may be effective in treating inflammatory bowel diseases, including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
