What is Boswellia Serrata and how does it help?

Boswellia serrata is a well-known plant in Ayurvedic medicine that is primarily used to relieve joint pain. Its main bioactive compound, acetyl-11-keto-beta boswellic acid (AKBA), is a strong inhibitor of the enzyme responsible for inflammation, 5-lipoxygenase (1) (2).

The anti-inflammatory effects of Boswellia serrata have been investigated for their benefits in suppressing pain and immobility associated with osteoarthritis. For example, a recent meta-analysis in 2020, which involved men and women with osteoarthritis who took Boswellia serrata extract, saw improvements in joint pain, stiffness, and function after 4 weeks of treatment. It is important to note that these improvements were 2-3 times greater with treatment periods that lasted 12 weeks. (3)

What's fascinating about Boswellia serrata is that several clinical trials (4, 5, 6) have compared its effects to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) on osteoarthritis symptoms. Those studies have shown that after 6 months of supplementation, subjects saw improvements in knee pain, stiffness, and function similar to those who took NSAIDs.

What is Curcumin and how does it help?

Curcumin is a component of turmeric, also known as curcuma longa. What's interesting about curcumin is that it operates similarly to many common NSAIDs, by inhibiting an enzyme called cyclooxygenase (COX) and reducing inflammation in the body.

Curcumin is a well-studied supplement, with at least 13 clinical trials investigating its effects on osteoarthritis symptoms like knee pain and physical function. These trials have been summarized in several meta-analyses (7, 8, 9, 10, 11).

The results of these studies indicate that curcumin supplementation improves osteoarthritis symptoms to a moderate to large degree when compared with a placebo. Furthermore, the effects are comparable to those of NSAIDs.
