Clinical Benefits

  • A randomised double blind placebo study demonstrates the effectiveness of boswellia in osteoarthritis: 30 patients were allocated to two groups of 15 each, with one group to receive the Boswellia serrata extract (BSE) and the other a placebo. The groups were asked to score their pain, loss of function and swelling between 0 (absent) and 3 (severe). The group given the BSE reported a vast improvement in the symptoms of osteoarthritis. There was a 90% decrease in joint pain and an 89% decrease in joint mobility, improving knee flexion and range of movement. The frequency of swelling in the knee joint also considerably decreased (Figure One).3

  • For temporary relief of pain and joint inflammation:1 Tumeric has been traditionally used in Chinese medicine to relieve the pain and swelling of traumatic injuries. It acts by inhibiting NF-kappa B, COX2, chemokines and prostaglandins as illustrated in an animal study.4
  • Regulation of the inflammatory cascade: The ingredients in Inflavonoid Intensive Care work at various points within the inflammatory cascade to decrease inflammation and pain associated with arthritis via the following mechanisms (Figure Two):
    • Boswellia inhibits 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX).5
    • White willow bark inhibits prostaglandin synthesis by inhibiting cyclo-oxygenase (COX-2) mediated prostaglandin release shownin vitro.6
    • Ginger suppresses prostaglandin synthesis through inhibition of COX and LOX.7
    • Quercetin inhibits the activation of NF-kappa B demonstrated in vitro studies.8
