Boswellia is considered a beneficial herb in Ayurvedic healthcare for thousands of years. The Boswelia Serrata tree is a medium-sized tree that is common on dry hills in large parts of India. Traditionally, incense is extracted from this tree. When a boswellia tree is about four years old, cuts are made in the bark. White liquid resin drips from those slices. The drop-shaped resin then crystallizes into golden brown resin beads. Those grains form pure incense. Boswelia serrata resin contains substances that contribute to flexible joints*. AKBA (3-acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid) is the strongest working Boswellic acid. Boswelia Serrata is used by many people for the joints of the knees, hips and fingers. This classic joint care product gives you optimal freedom of movement again! Boswellia serrata resin is a natural ingredient that has very few side effects and can be used for a long time.

*Evidence for the health effect is still being assessed in the European authorization procedure.
