Beta-boswellic acid, keto-beta-boswellic acid, and acetyl-keto-beta-boswellic acid (AKBA) accept been adumbrated in apoptosis of blight cells, in accurate academician tumors and beef afflicted by leukemia or colon cancer.
Acetyl-boswellic acids aswell display anti-inflammatory behaviour by inhibiting leukotriene synthesis. To be specific, it inhibits the action of the agitator 5-lipoxygenase through a non-redox reaction. Clinical trials accept advised the capability of boswellic acids in alleviative ulcerative colitis, but a extraction on chemically induced colitis in abrasion models showed little effectiveness. A closing extraction showed that low doses of Boswellia serrata extract may accept hepatoprotective effects. Interestingly enough, the college dosage was begin to accept a milder hepatoprotective aftereffect than the lower dose.
Boswellic acids are aswell anticipation to abatement the affection of asthma; a baby 1998 placebo-controlled balloon of Boswellia extract for the analysis of asthma showed acceptable results. Boswellia extracts are awash in tablet, abridged and blush form, but no dosage guidelines accept been developed. The accident of hepatotoxicity due to Boswellia administering has not been assessed.
