The Science of Boswellia
The golden yellow resin from the bark of Boswellia (Boswellia serrata) has long been used in Ayurvedic practice to support healthy joints and respiratory function.1 Active plant compounds in Boswellia have been identified as boswellic acids.2 Clinical evidence of this activity is found in placebo-controlled clinical studies. Boswellia supported joint function, either when taken alone3 or combined with other Ayurvedic herbs (Ashwagandha and Turmeric) and minerals.4 Boswellia has also been found to support healthy respiratory function.5

In Ayurveda there are seven basic body constitutions resulting from the predominance of one or more energetic influences or Doshas. The Doshas, Vata, Pitta and Kapha, influence physical, mental and spiritual health. Everyone is considered to be a unique combination of these three body influences. Your natural Doshic state of balance is called Prakruti. Boswellia is used for healthy joints and can also help to balance certain Doshas.
