Boswellia serrata, a resin with anti-inflammatory activity, is native to the Arabian Peninsula and India.
Boswellic acid contained in Boswellia extract can simultaneously inhibit the activity of two pro-inflammatory enzymes: leukocyte elastase (HLE) and 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX), cut off the inflammatory pathway, and thus achieve anti-inflammatory purposes.
