Knee Pain Boswellia Serrata

Ayurvedic Ingredient Boswellia Serrata May Ease Knee Pain

Knee pain is a common problem as people age and this much-used joint ages along with them. A recent study suggests that taking a supplement containing the Ayurvedic ingredient boswellia serrata extract may help ease knee pain.


Participants in the study included 48 people with knee pain who were given either a boswellia serrata extract or a placebo once daily for eight weeks. The researchers used the Visual Analog Scale (VAS), the Japanese Knee Osteoarthritis Measure (JKOM) and the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) in order to evaluate knee pain.


At the conclusion of the study, the researchers noted improvements in the VAS, JKOM, and WOMAC scores in the supplement group. They also noted lower serum hyaluronic acid levels.


Researchers from Sabinsa, Sami Labs, and ClinWorld conducted the study. It was published in the October 2016 issue of the European Journal of Biomedical and Pharmaceutical Sciences.


Boswellia serrata extract has been used for a long time in traditional Indian Ayurvedic medicine, where it is recommended for abdominal pain, asthma, osteoarthritis, bursitis, tendonitis, and sore throat. It is believed that it helps these ailments by reducing inflammation, but more research is necessary to determine the exact effects.
