Health Notes

Boswellia

Boswellia
Common names:
Salai Guggal
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

      Comments about GNC HERBAL PLUS STANDARDIZED GNC Herbal Plus® Standardized Boswellia:

      I have been using GNC Boswellia for a couple of years now, for Osteo Arthritis pain in my knees and hip/low back. I started by taking 3 caspules at a time twice a day and then tapered off to 2 at a time twice a day. Boswellia is also Frankincense and you can get this in an essential oil, the oil can be beneficial to help a tender bursa. I take the capsules and I use the oil for swelling in my knees. For my low back/hip nothing you can rub on is going to get down into the sacroilliac joint, this is where the Boswellia capsules excell for me.

      Comments about GNC HERBAL PLUS STANDARDIZED GNC Herbal Plus® Standardized Boswellia:

      Perhaps maybe it's the TYPE of joint pain that I have which makes this supplement ineffective, but I have to say that my arthiritis feels worse since starting this almost a month ago.
      I have osteoarthiritis & read this might help - but sadly it hasn't.
      Obviously it has helped others based on the reviews, I guess it would be worth a shot to someone to try it - it's just sad it didn't help me at all & seemingly worsened my condition.
