Commonly known as Frankincense, Boswellia contains Boswellic acid, which has well known joint support and comfort properties and has also been shown to help maintain the structural integrity of connective tissues. It has also been shown to soothe digestive issues, can help to firm loose droppings, and is thought to support the respiratory system.
The mechanism of anti-inflammatory activity of the Boswellia extract is due to the boswellic acids, which are the active component of Frankincense. Riaflex contains 65% Boswellic acids. The chemical structure of boswellic acids closely resembles that of steroids, but their actions are different from prescription meds or NSAIDs. It is believed they help to maintain a healthy level of 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX) activity, which in turn helps to inhibit inflammation.
