Study and review
Boswellic acids: biological actions and molecular targets.
Curr Med Chem. 2006; Poeckel D, Werz O. Department of Pharmaceutical Analytics, Institute of Pharmacy, Eberhard-Karls-University Tuebingen, Auf der Morgenstelle 8, 72076 Tuebingen, Germany.
Gum resin extracts of Boswellia species have been traditionally applied in folk medicine for centuries. Analysis of the ingredients of these extracts revealed that the pentacyclic triterpenes boswellic acids possess biological activities and appear to be responsible for the respective pharmacological actions. Approaches in order to elucidate the molecular mechanisms underlying the biological effects of boswellic acids identified 5-lipoxygenase, human leukocyte elastase, toposiomerase I and II, as well as IkappaB kinases as molecular targets of BAs. Moreover, it was shown that depending on the cell type and the structure of the boswellic acids, the compounds differentially interfere with signal transduction pathways including Ca(2+/-) and MAPK signaling in various blood cells.
Read new boswellia serrata research. If you buy a boswellia supplement along with Joint Power Rx, you may wish to first learn how each one works by itself for a week before combining. If your health care provider approves to take this herb along with a joint health formula, take no more than one boswellia pill a day.
