Boswellia in the family Burseraceae, particularly Boswellia sacra (syn: B. carteri, B. thurifera, B. bhaw-dajiana), B. frereana and B. serrata (Indian frankincense.). Frankincense resin is edible and is used in traditional medicines in Africa and Asia for digestion and healthy skin. For internal consumption, it is recommended that frankincense be translucent, with no black or brown impurities. Exposure to 11-keto-β-boswellic acid (KBA), a lead boswellic acid in the novel solubilized…

A Systematic Review on Frankincense (Boswellia species)
TLDR
This review is aimed to deliver an overview of current knowledge of volatile constituents, boswellic acids, and extracts of several Boswellia species, which possess anti neoplastic activity, and also have been determined as potential anti-cancer expedients.
Assessment and Evaluation of the Leaf Extract of Begonia barbata to the Reduction LDL-Cholesterol in Carbamazepine Induced Obese Rats
TLDR
The Begonia barbata feeding with a normal diet reduced carbamazepine-induced obesity at both high and low doses and the level of HDL level was changed but not significantly.
ENHANCEMENT OF SOLUBILITY, BIOAVAILABILITY & EFFICACY OF BOSWELLIC ACIDS BY ACETYLATION, BETA CYCLODEXTRIN ENCAPSULATION & PREPARING DIETHYL
The Boswellic acids contain six important isomers like (1) 3-O-acetyl-11-keto-β-Boswellic acid (AKBA), (2) 11keto-β-Boswellic acid(KBA) (3) acetylated α and β Boswellic acids(ABA) and (4) α and
Marine Collagen Hydrolysates Promote Collagen Synthesis, Viability and Proliferation While Downregulating the Synthesis of Pro-Catabolic Markers in Human Articular Chondrocytes
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the use of Promerim® hydrolysates hold promise as complementary dietary supplements in combination with the current classical treatments or as a preventive therapy to delay the occurrence of OA in humans.

Boswellic acids: biological actions and molecular targets.
TLDR
This review summarizes the biological actions of BAs on the cellular and molecular level and attempts to put the data into perspective of the beneficial effects manifested in animal studies and trials with human subjects related to inflammation and cancer.
Effects of boswellic acids extracted from a herbal medicine on the biosynthesis of leukotrienes and the course of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis.
TLDR
The boswellic acids have been characterized as selective, non-redox and potent inhibitors of the biosynthesis of leukotrienes in vitro and reduced the clinical symptoms in guinea pigs with experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis.
Pharmacokinetic study of 11-Keto beta-Boswellic acid.
TLDR
Elimination half life of nearly six hours suggests that the drug needs to be given orally at the interval of six hours to achieve steady state, and BSE is a safe drug and well tolerated on oral administration.
Boswellic acids: novel, specific, nonredox inhibitors of 5-lipoxygenase.
TLDR
The data strongly suggest that BAs are specific, nonreducing-type inhibitors of the 5-LO product formation either interacting directly with the5-LO or blocking its translocation.
On the interference of boswellic acids with 5-lipoxygenase: mechanistic studies in vitro and pharmacological relevance.
Inhibition by boswellic acids of human leukocyte elastase.
TLDR
The data show that the dual inhibition of 5-lipoxygenase and HLE is unique to boswellic acids, and might be the rationale for the putative antiphlogistic activity of acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid and derivatives.
Differentiation between Resins Boswellia carterii and Boswellia frereana (Frankincense) of Somali Origin
TLDR
The chemical composition of a methanolic extract of the resins of Boswellia frereana and B. carterii was examined and a limited number of constituents were identified.
