In addition, boswellic acids may reduce the synthesis of the human leukocyte elastase enzyme. The combination of these two actions is believed to be unique to boswellia. As a result of its effect on 5-lipoxygenase, boswellia also plays a key role in supporting colon health.
As opposed to NSAIDs, long-term use of boswellia does not lead to irritation of the stomach. Boswellia extract, standardized to contain 85% boswellic acids, promotes healthy joint, connective tissue and colon function primarily by maintaining normal leukotriene levels.
