Boswellia serrata?

Postby Brian4 » Wed Sep 13, 2017 3:33 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm reading through Bredesen's new book, and am surprised to see no mention of Boswellia. And then I did a search here (possibly incorrectly; if so sorry), and see that no one here has reported using it either.

Examine.com, which I find reasonably reliable, gives it a very positive review. It is, among other things, a potent anti-inflammatory, and given how important it is for us to reduce "inflammaging", I had assumed some people here would be using it.

Is anyone?

Perhaps the research emphasis on osteoarthritis has led people here to believe that's its only likely benefit. But from my researches, it seems to offer us much else.

Thanks,
Brian

Brian, I've been using boswellia a few times a week for a year or so and just recently started ramping up to daily use. I agree the Examine review is very positive and one of the sources I found that kinda convinced me to give it a try. I'm careful about adding new supplements to my routine, but decided to give this one a shot. I have labs coming up in a month and am interested in seeing if I have any improvement in a stubborn inflammatory marker (hsCRP) while using boswellia consistently. Of course, you can never be certain of cause/effect in this sort of casual trial, but I'm not changing anything else diet/supplement-wise for the time being, so we'll see.

Boswellia is something that comes up in rheumatoid arthritis forums as an anti-inflammatory.

Curcumin and fish oil, along with all the other diet and life changes have done enough for me, so never felt the need to try it.

Susan, your reasoning makes sense.

Lucy, look forward to hearing what kind of results you get on your next round of testing.

Thanks,
Brian
