Our BosPure® Boswellia is a gum resin produced from the boswellia serrate plant, also known as Indian Frankincense. The herb has been used for thousands of years in traditional Ayurveda. Bospure® is standardized to 75% total organic acids along with 3 specific boswellic acids: (AKBA) Acetyl-11-Keto-Boswellic Acid (10%), Acetyl-alpha-Boswellic Acid and Acetyl-beta-Boswellic Acid. The synergism of these components makes it a comprehensive extract to provide inflammatory support and pain management. Best of all, this potent, Non-GMO, product is made in the USA in our certified cGMP Facility.
What are Acetyl-group Boswellic Acids? AKBA, along with the other acetyl-group Boswellic Acids are the active compounds in BosPure® that inhibit the inflammatory pathway 5-LOX. Inhibiting this pathway prevents the breakdown of joints by leukotrienes which are associated with inflammation. Other extracts only contain 1-2% of these potent compounds. BosPure contains NO beta-boswellic acid which is also present in other extracts up to 30% and has been shown to be proinflammatory. Conventional boswellia may only provide temporarily relief while BosPure®’s effect is long-lasting.
Why BosPure® Boswellia?
As with for all of our products, we choose highest quality, purity, and clinically proven materials to ensure efficacy, safety, and best value for our customers.
BosPure® has been clinically studied in conjunction with BCM95® (curcumin) as a safer alternative for chronic joint issues. BCM95® works in synergy with BosPure® as a COX-inhibitor and also works to provide inflammatory support with no known side effects (Molecular Medicine Reports 8: 1542-1548, 2013). BosPure® and Curcu-Gel BCM95® have been clinically studied for joint and mobility issues. Best of all, the combination of BosPure® and Curcu-Gel BCM95® may have you walking easier and for longer distances then you ever thought possible!
A recent Curcu-Gel study published by researchers from Baylor University Medical Center, TX, revealed novel mechanistic evidence for chemopreventive effects of BCM95® and Bospure® in colorectal cancer (Cancer Prevention Research; 8(5):431-43)
Other Ingredients: Hypromellose, microcrystalline cellulose, magnesium stearate and silicon dioxide.
Are there any allergens in this product?
There are NO allergens in this product.
Is the capsule made from animal gelatin?
No, these capsules are pure Non-GMO vegetable and plant materials. And rest assured we do not test on animals either!
Where is the product made?
This product has been manufactured in a certified cGMP U.S. facility in either New York or Maryland.
Do You Perform Product and Raw Material Testing?
Absolutely YES! Prior to manufacture, we test every single raw material active and inactive, to confirm the identity of each batch of raw material to be used in the finished product. This verified raw material is then lab tested for potency, microbiology, heavy metals, and residual solvents before any use in manufacturing.
Finally, all finished products are tested to ensure that the potency is at least 100% of label claim, along with a second round of heavy metal and microbiological testing to make sure that the product is safe for human consumption.
What is magnesium stearate? Why is it added to the supplement?
Magnesium stearate is used in the manufacturing of both supplements and medications as a lubricant or “flow agent” to prevent blockages in the machinery. Being used in the manufacturing process, small amounts make their way into the final product.
Magnesium stearate is found in nature and in our diet, (meat and chocolate are particularly rich sources). Bottom line, the small amount that you will actually consume from supplements or medications is considered negligible.
What is silicon dioxide? Why is it added to the supplement?
Silicon Dioxide is used in the manufacturing process to prevent the various powdered ingredients destined for the supplement from sticking together and to ensure an even distribution of ingredients in the final product. As with many food additives, consumers often have concerns about finding silicon dioxide on product labels. However, numerous studies have found no health risks associated with silicon dioxide and the actual amount in each supplement is considered negligible.
What is microcrystalline cellulose? Why is it added to the supplement?
Microcrystalline Cellulose is an industry standard binding agent used in the making of foods, prescription drugs, over the counter medications, and dietary supplements. It is added to supplements as an excipient and inert substance. In fact, it is so inert it is often used as a placebo in controlled drug studies. As an insoluble fiber, microcrystalline cellulose is not absorbed into the blood stream, so it cannot cause toxicity when taken orally.
What is hypromellose? Why is it added to the supplement?
Hypromellose, is a derivative of cellulose, (the main constituent of plant cell walls), used as eye drops for artificial tears and in supplements as an excipient. Hypromellose is a vegetarian alternative to gelatin.
