Anti-Inflammatory to help relieve swelling.*
Ancient Wisdom Meets Modern Science
Boswellia, also known as Indian frankincense, has been a vital component of Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. Unique among botanicals, it works through unique pathways in the body. Now modern science has developed a clinically studied and uniquely standardized boswellia called BosPure® Boswellia.
A Single Ingredient – A Multitude of Benefits
Boswellia has a number of beneficial compounds, one of them being called “AKBA” (acetyl-11-keto-β-boswellic acid). The BosPure® Boswellia used in BosMed 500 provides up to 10 times more AKBA than unstandardized forms, which may have as little as 1% of this beneficial compound.
This clinically studied and uniquely standardized boswellia used in BosMed 500 ADVANCED BOSWELLIA uses a unique process that ensures at least 10% AKBA and virtually no pro-inflammatory beta-boswellic acid, which, according to studies, could interfere with its optimal effectiveness. Therefore, getting more of what is needed and less of what is not.

Where is the boswellia in BosMed 500 harvested?
The boswellia in BosMed 500 is harvested from trees growing in northwest India. The trees are under the supervision of the Department of Forestry, which carefully controls harvest frequency and other issues of sustainability. Many of the sustainability concerns regarding boswellia are associated with a different species of boswellia – Boswellia papyrifera – which is a very fragrant species harvested for use in the perfume and incense industries.
Is your boswellia sustainably sourced?
Yes. The boswellia we use is grown in northwest India and harvested under the oversight of the Department of Forestry, which carefully controls harvest frequency and other issues of sustainability. The boswellia family contains over 20 species, and each species may be subject to different sustainability concerns. We only use Boswellia serrata that is sustainably harvested and therefore does not contribute to the problems facing other species of boswellia.
What is the difference between boswellia used in BosMed 500 and other boswellia extracts?
Most experts consider a compound known as AKBA to be associated with boswellia’s health benefits. The boswellia in BosMed 500 is standardized to greater than 10 percent of this important compound and virtually no pro-inflammatory beta-boswellic acid, which, according to studies, could interfere with its optimal effectiveness.
