That lower back pain from being at the desk all day, or the tweaked knee from a long weekend hike. Morning stiffness or the ache at the end of a long shift on your feet. We put our bodies through a lot. Sometimes, they let us know we’ve overdone it — a shoulder joint complains, the spine says enough. Give your body some relief.
What is Boswellia?
Resin from Boswellia serrata has been used as incense in religious and cultural ceremonies for centuries. The end product — a resin gathered by tapping the tree — is also known as Indian Frankincense. This resin has been used in ayurvedic medicine as remedy for a broad range of complaints including osteoarthritis, asthma, and an extensive array of other complaints. Research has shown promise for its use to reduce inflammation and provide comfort.
How Does Boswellia Work?
Boswellia slows down the creation of a specific inflammation causing enzyme. Less of that enzyme in your body, less nerve irritation at the point of injury, less overall discomfort. Boswellia also has antimicrobial properties that can prevent infection and speed healing. (Want to go deep? Read this study.) Clinical trials showed that Boswellia was more effective than standard NSAIDs. And it reduced inflammation without stomach irritation and other side effects common from NSAIDs
CBD + Boswellia
CBD is already used by many as a supplement for joint health. CBD also shows tremendous promise for helping stress — and stress is a known factor in creating hard to manage body aches. CBD can help quiet the amplifying noise of discomfort in your brain while Boswellia slows down the generation of those inflammation causing enzymes. They’re good partners, helping your body do the things your brain needs it to do to get through the day. Learn more about Elixinol’s Body Comfort CBD Capsules here.
