As people age, systemic inflammation can inflict degenerative effects throughout the body.1-5 A primary cause of this destructive cascade is the production of cell-signaling chemicals known as pro-inflammatory cytokines. Along with these dangerous cytokines, imbalances of hormone-like messengers called prostaglandins and leukotrienes also contribute to inflammatory processes.6-8
Boswella™ from Hervedics is an extract of the resin of the Boswellia serrata tree which grows in India. Boswellic acids are effective at blocking the synthesis of pro-inflammatory 5-lipoxygenase products and may also mediate other inflammatory actions by inhibiting cyclooxygenases, preferentially COX-1.91-99
Topical application of boswella cream may provide localized relief from fluid imbalance.
