Boswellin®, the standardized extract of boswellic acids from Boswellia serrata is valued for its anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic properties. However, a number of non-standardized generic extracts of Boswellia serrata have recently appeared in the marketplace.

These non-standardized products with extraneous impurities could pose health hazards to unwary consumers. In addition, this wanton disregard for quality by some manufacturers could spell disaster to legitimately standardized products of a similar nature.

It is important that manufacturers of nutritional raw materials supply standardized extracts that adhere to stringent quality specifications. In the case of Boswellia serrata, generic extracts could contain upto 15-20% of gummy residue which is known to cause stomach irritation and other gastrointestinal problems. SABINSA’s manufacturing process has been devised to totally eliminate the gummy fraction.

The biologically active constituents in Boswellin® include:

ß-boswellic acid Acetylß-boswellic acid11-keto ß-boswellic acid Acetyl

11-keto ß-boswellic acid
