Brilliant product. Such high grade Boswellia.

I wanted to find Boswellia with a high level of boswellic acid – at 80% I am very happy with this supplement! It also contains the ingredients to increase absorption, so a perfect complete product.

I feed this to help my Thoroughbred’s comfort and joint health. I’m really pleased with the results so far and very happy to know that it contains very high levels of the Boswellic Acid.

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.
