Frequently Asked Questions
Boswellia has a number of beneficial compounds, AKBA (acetyl-11-keto-B-boswellic acid) being one of them. In fact, it supports pathways in the body that even other strong botanicals can't. However, unstandardized boswellia can also contain beta-boswellic acid, which is not associated with optimal benefits. The boswellia in BosMed 500 uses a unique process that ensures at least 10% AKBA, and virtually no boswellic acid, so you get the benefits you need—and none of the compounds that you don't want.
The boswellia used in BosMed 500 is harvested from trees growing in northwest India. The trees are under the supervision of the Department of Forestry, which carefully controls harvest frequency and other issues of sustainability. Many of the sustainability concerns regarding boswellia are associated with a different species of boswellia - Boswellia papyrifera - which is a very fragrant species harvested for use in the perfume and incense industries.
Yes. The boswellia we use is grown traditionally in India and harvested under the oversight of the Department of Forestry, which carefully controls harvest frequency and other issues of sustainability. The boswellia family contains over 20 species, and each species may be subjected to different sustainability concerns. We only use Boswellia serrata that is sustainably harvested and therefore does not contribute to the problems facing other species of boswellia.
