I’m hoping to see an improvement in joint comfort! He seems to like it so fingers crossed

My 22 yr old semi retired hunter is now on this product, and there is definitely an improvement, I’m halfway through a month supply and so far am pleased.

Has made a massive difference to our 27 year old Sec D, enabling him to stay in work with arthritis.

I've used Boswellium for a long time now.  I always thought it worked, I now know it works as I ran out for around ten days, and there was a very noticeable and distinct difference in the evenness of my horses' gait, and it wasn't only me who noticed!!  To be really effective, it does have to contain over 80% boswellic acid, which Boswellium does.  If it's less than that, in my experience, its not worth having!!  I take human grade Boswellia containing 85% boswellic acid, so I also know from my own perspective what works and what doesn't!!

I won't be running out again!!!

Has had an excellent effect on the mobility of my 30 year old Arab.

I took him off Danilon and have been very pleased with the result

It’s a very good product but there is a lot of powder for the horses feed to soak up so if your horse is fussy etc I would put a bit more mix or something really tasty so it all gets eaten! It works though

Why not?  It works and is non intrusive.

I have only been using it for a week but I am hoping that it will enable me to take him off Danilon

Nutrition Information

Boswellia is a genus of plants that produce resin within their trunk and branches. This resin has been shown in humans and animals to have medicinal properties that support mobility and that soothe the digestive and respiratory systems (Borrelli et al., 2006; Sengupta et al., 2008; Roy et al., 2019). These beneficial properties are due to boswellic acids contained within the resin, with certain boswellic acids having greater beneficial effects than others. One boswellic acid in particular, 3-O-acetyl-11-keto-ß-boswellic acids, abbreviated to AKBA, has been shown to be particularly potent and effective in down-regulating the body's inflammatory response (Roy et al., 2019). Boswellium™ contains an extract of Boswellia serrata containing 80% boswellic acids and 10% AKBA, meaning you know exactly how much of these important compounds your horse is consuming, and making Boswellium™ the highest specification Boswellia equine supplement on the market.

Boswellium™ doesn't stop at providing concentrated boswellic acids, it also delivers them in a formulation that promotes their absorption. Studies indicate that absorption of boswellic acids is increased when fed in conjunction with Piperine, a component of Black Pepper, and alongside a source of fat (Sterk et al., 2004; Vijayarani et al., 2020). As such, Boswellium™ uses an innovative two-part formulation that combines boswellic acids with Black Pepper extract and high-fat Linseed to enhance absorption. The formulation is also vegan meaning you can feed your horse as nature intended.

Boswellium™ can be fed to all horses and ponies to support joint function and skin health, soothe the digestive tract and optimise respiratory function.
