- A Dietary Supplement
NOW Boswellia Extract is a standardized extract of the herb Boswellia serrata, also known as Frankincense. Boswellia's properties have been long known to herbalists and have been prized since antiquity. Recent scientific research indicates that Boswellia Extract can help to support a healthy inflammatory response through its effects on the 5-LOX and COX-2 enzymes, as well as on other cellular signaling pathways.
As a dietary supplement, take 1-2 capsules up to 3 times daily, preferably with a fat-containing meal. Consider taking these other NOW products: Serrazimes, Flex Mobility and UC-II.
Rice flour, cellulose (capsule), magnesium stearate (vegetable source) and silica.
Not manufactured with yeast, wheat, gluten, soy, milk, egg, fish, shellfish or tree nut ingredients. Produced in a GMP facility that processes other ingredients containing these allergens.
Store in a cool, dry place after opening.
Caution: For adults only. Boswellia may cause minor, temporary gastric upset or irritation. Consult physician if pregnant/nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition. Keep out of reach of children.

I purchased a related product from Life Extension that was described as being a concentrated form of the active ingredient in Boswellin. After a week, it was clear it wasn't as effective as the pain and inflammation that this Boswellin had been keeping under control was coming back. I switched back to this product, and was fine again. So I highly recommend it. My wife has found it helpful for her arthritis as well.
I took this for my knee, which is only mildly arthritic. I could not tell if it worked for that. But my neck, which has severe (little cartilage left between some vertebrae) degenerative joint disease and arthritis was helped immensely. While I was taking this supplement, I did not have a flare-up from my neck. And not for lack of use and abuse! There's no placebo effect in my case. When it flares up, inflammation and muscle spasms pinch nerves, causing arm, head and shoulder pain which makes life very difficult. When I stopped taking it I had a couple flare-ups which usually take a month to resolve. Whether you take this one supplement, or take them in separate forms, this is worth a try. I feel the two need to be taken together, I had no relief from taking boswellia or curcumin alone. When the pain is gone, you just stop thinking about it. This combination works and what an incredible relief. This is just my experience, we're all different. Hope it helps you too.

If you cannot afford meds or u get side effects from them,pls give this a try 2 pills 3 times a day and avoid spicy food, grains and citrus fruits, you'll stop bleeding in a week and u'll forget u evee had UC, although it's recommended to keep using it for 6 weeks even after feeling better or bleeding stops. UPDATE: 13/05/2016 They changed the Formula: it looks and feels different, its less orangery than how it used to be, not effective anymore. Just WHY Now Foods??

Boswellin really helps,excellent antiinflamatory
Messes with my bowels
Posted by Reviewer2846445 on Jun 13, 2015
I purchased this to help with the healing of a sciatic injury where I had torn the ligaments around my hip and messed with the nerve in the process. Unfortunately every time I take it, it upsets my bowels which results in repeated trips to the toilet in a short space of time (totally not normal for me). The toilet is cruel on an injury like mine and I ended up in much worse pain as a result. It's not worth the setback that this was creating so I am putting this aside for now and may consider it for other inflammatory conditions, but not for this one.
