What is Boswellia?These small shrubs and trees, from the family Burseraceae, are related to the trees that produce Myrrh. The fragrant resins are known as frankincense or oleo-gum and have been used for many centuries as incense, as well as embalming liquids. Boswellia serrata resin is closely related to the biblical frankincense (Boswellia Carterii), although the following studies are regarding B. serrata, not B.carterii. The many species of Boswellia are native to the dry tropics of north-east Africa and Asia. Boswellia serrata has a long history of therapeutic use, especially in Ayurvedic medicine. In Ayurveda, Boswellia has mainly been used as an astringent and anti-inflammatory agent when applied externally, but used as a stimulant and expectorant if taken orally. It is also used for: chronic pulmonary diseases, rheumatic disorders, diarrhea, dysentery, piles, dysmenorrhea, gonorrhea, syphilis, liver disorders, general weakness, and to stimulate appetite. Its success as an anti-inflammatory has no doubt led to an increasing number of clinical studies for an exceptionally large range of inflammatory conditions.

Good quality but a little expensive.

You need 1 to 2g per day to cure.
I mix this powder with honey in my hot drink.
Before using Boswellia Extract I wasn’t really sure what to expect. However after using it on a regular basis I actually find less problems with my Asthma. I don’t know what it is doing but I have found at this time of year with cold weather my breathing is actually better than it usually is. It is a plus for me for sure. Everyone likes to be able to breathe without problems and this has been a real gift for me.
