Description

Boswellia Extract is a herbal extract from the resin of the boswellia serrata tree. Natural medicine practices have used this herbal extract for centuries. Its anti-inflammatory effects mean that it may help with inflammatory conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and asthma.

By helping control inflammation, Boswellia may minimize the symptoms of chronic inflammatory conditions.

These herbal extracts are ideal for adding to herbal teas, or other beverages, and can also be added to foods. Or you may fill capsules with the extract for convenience. The recommended dose for Boswellia Extract is 300-400 mg three times a day.

Boswellia comes from the Boswellia serrata tree, which is native to India, North Africa, and the Middle East. The resin is collected and is known by its common name Frankincense.

Boswellia and its active ingredients, such as boswellic acid, appear to have a good anti-inflammatory effects on the body.

Rheumatoid arthritis

Inflammation around the joints is the leading cause of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) symptoms. Boswellia appears to be effective in reducing inflammation, so it may also lessen the symptoms of RA. The Arthritis Foundation recommends boswellic acid capsules as a potential therapy for RA, as well as for osteoarthritis.

Inflammatory bowel disease

The anti-inflammatory effects of boswellia may also be beneficial for people with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease.

A study in the World Journal of Gastroenterology looked into the action of these compounds. In animal models, boswellic acids improved markers of IBD without causing adverse effects on the surrounding organs. They may, therefore, prove to be a useful supportive treatment for these chronic conditions.

Asthma

Boswellic acid may also have a role in asthma treatment. Research findings have shown that boswellic acid suppresses inflammation in the airways and inhibits the secretion of cytokines, which are markers that lead to inflammation.

Thus, boswellic acid appears to block off the allergic response that causes an asthma reaction in the first place.

Parkinson’s disease

A 2019 study found that boswellia may be a helpful tool in medical efforts to treat Parkinson’s disease.

In animal models, boswellia had an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effect, which appeared to protect neurons in the brain and improve motor function in a rat model of Parkinson’s disease. However, this is early research that needs backing from studies involving humans.

Medicinal Use

Blue Flag’s name is derived from the beautiful and colourful blue petals of its flower. The Native American tribes were the first to use Blue Flag root in herbal preparations. Used to treat diseases of the liver thanks to its high iridium content. Blue Flag root taken as tea can be an effective laxative and diuretic. Also effective as a topical medicine, it can reduce inflammation of the skin and may decrease the symptoms of skin infections. Also great for treating burns, bruises and wounds.

Spiritual/Magical Use

The fresh flowers are said to purify an area and to attract the qualities of wisdom, faith, and courage. Sacred to Iris, Goddess of the Rainbow, to Juno, and to the sphere of Venus, iris is a classic Goddess herb which brings purity, wisdom, courage, and faith.
