Boswellia, also known as Indian Frankincense, is extracted from Boswellia serrata trees that are native to India and Pakistan. It is well known for its anti-inflammatory properties and has been used in many different countries for centuries. Boswellia has a unique compound called boswellic acid that possesses potent anti-inflammatory properties. It assists in suppressing proliferation of tissues at the site of inflammation and inhibits the breakdown of connective tissues caused by TNF-α (tumor necrosis factor-alpha), a potent inflammatory agent.
