What is Boswellia Serrata?
Boswellia Serrata is the resin that comes from the Indian Boswellia tree. It has been used as a botanical medicine for thousands of years. Research has shown that the resin is fast-acting and effective against joint problems and pain, among other things. It is said to have similar properties to devil's claw with the difference that Boswellia Serrata produces faster results.
What is its function?
Boswellia Serrata has a circulation-enhancing effect and properties that help to rapidly reduce inflammatory activity. Thus, it promotes good joint and muscle health and provides increased joint mobility. It has demonstrated efficacy in many areas, including joint problems and osteoarthritis. In combination with high molecular weight hyaluronic acid, it helps to ensure that hyaluronic acid does not break down but remains and continues to act in the joint. This provides optimal conditions for the body to produce its own new high-quality joint fluid.
Are there any side effects of Boswellia Serrata?
Side effects are rare, especially when dosed as recommended. However, side effects may occur in rare cases. For example, allergic reactions or gastrointestinal reactions have been reported in humans. If you experience stomach upset or heartburn, we recommend reducing the dose or stopping for a few days.
At present, we have no recorded cases of adverse reactions in horses. Since we know that it can occur in humans, it would be expected that it occurs occasionally in horses as well. Should you find that your horse becomes loose in the stomach from the preparation, you can discontinue treatment for a week. Then try resuming it initially with a lower dose. If the symptoms return, you should switch to a product that does not contain this substance.
