What are the benefits of taking boswellia?

Boswellic acid is the active compound found in the boswellia sap. It may have the ability to help increase the amount of blood supply to your joint tissues.

Boswellia is also a rich source of gugglesterones. It’s commonly found as an ingredient in OTC, or over the counter weight loss supplements. Our thyroids are simulated by gugglestones, and may lead to metabolic up-regulation, as well as a boosted increase of thyroid efficiency, caloric burn, and if combined with exercise, fat loss.

Some more recent research is showing that boswellia extract is possibly beneficial at treating colitis. It may also contribute to preventing liver cancer, but more research is needed.
