Category: Weight Management
Boswellia Rx™ is a natural anti-inflammatory Boswellia formula (Boswellic acids) which can help relieve inflammatory conditions without the side effects normally associated with NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs).
Boswellia Rx™ was found to be effective in the reduction of inflammation & joint swelling, as well as increasing mobility. Boswellia is the first herbal remedy to effectively and safely address inflammatory conditions and offer relief naturally. Boswellia is completely non-toxic and does not require a prescription. Boswellia Rx™ provides excellent anti-inflammatory and analgesic activity and can be effective for:
Joint pain and swelling
Every day exertion, strain
Soft tissue rheumatism
Inflammation is a complex process involving multiple actions/reactions and a wide variety of Biological substances. Inflammation is triggered by the body’s immunological response to tissue damage. Unlike prescription and many over the counter drugs typically used to treat chronic inflammation, Boswellia Rx™ specifically targets the 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX) pathway. As such, Boswellia Rx™ is able to reduce inflammation without the side effects commonly associated with NSAIDs and which are often worse than the symptoms they promise to relieve.
Inflammatory signaling molecules known as leukotrienes trigger inflammation in the human body. Overproduction of these molecules may result in chronic inflammatory conditions. The 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX) pathway is the major source of proinflammatory leukotrienes. 5-LOX breaks down arachidonic acid to pro-inflammatory compounds like leukotriene, a molecule that attacks joints, arterial walls, and other tissues. 5-LOX itself facilitates undesirable cell division changes.
Mechanism of Action:
While Boswellic acids inhibit leukotriene synthesis via 5-LOX inhibition, there is no effect on COX activities. This explains why, unlike NSAIDs, Boswellia Rx™ has no undesirable side effects. Boswellia Rx™ has also been shown to shrink inflamed tissue by improving blood flow to the affected area as well as enhancing the repair of blood vessels damaged by inflammation.
The most common treatment for inflammation is nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen. Unlike Boswellia Rx™, NSAIDs are thought to have dangerous side effects that limit their effectiveness for long-term use. The most common side effects are:
The Boswellia Serrata plant is native to the dry habitats of India, Northern Africa, and the Middle East. The gummy resin of this tree, also known as frankincense, contains compounds which have been used for their anti-inflammatory and pain relieving effects for thousands of years.
New research into the Boswellia resin has shown that Boswellic acids are powerful inhibitors of pro-inflammatory molecules, and may prove to be more effective than NSAIDs. Specifically, the acid 3-O-acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid (AKBA) has been identified for its ability to inhibit the enzyme 5-LOX, intervening at the cellular level to block its unwanted effects. Inhibiting this enzyme restricts synthesis of inflammatory signaling leukotrienes.
