Boswellic acid, one of the active phytonutrients found in Boswellia, exhibits anti-arthritic and anti-inflammatory properties. Boswellia is primarily used as a medicinal herb for its anti-inflammatory actions. Used in clinical horse studies,
Boswellia extract has been shown to be effective in the treatment and management of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, low-back pain, fibrositis, and injury, and for the treatment of chronic inflammatory conditions.
