The use of Boswellia extract and its therapeutic benefits
Boswellia extract is derived from the resin of the Boswellia serrata tree commonly grown in areas of Somalia and Pakistan. This tree is different from many others in that it can grow on very little soil in dry conditions.
Boswellia, a tree native to India, produces specific compounds that have been found to have strong anti-inflammatory and possibly anticancer properties. Of the Boswellia extracts the researchers found, several were among the most beneficial, including terpenes and boswellic acids, which have potent anti-inflammatory and healthy cell-protecting properties.
1. Helps reduce negative emotions
Boswellia extract has been shown to reduce heart rate and high blood pressure when absorbed. It has anti-anxiety and depression-reducing abilities, but unlike prescription drugs, it has no negative side effects or causes unwanted sleepiness.
2. Helps improve immune system function
Research has shown that Boswellia extract has immune-boosting abilities that may help destroy dangerous bacteria and viruses.
3. Helps skin anti-aging
Boswellia extract benefits include the ability to strengthen the skin and improve skin tone, elasticity, and appearance with age.
