Traditional use of Frankincense
Frankincense has a long and important tradition in the traditional medicine of many cultures (in the context of sustainable health maintenance) and was used, for example, in the Indian, Chinese, Arabic, Greco-Roman as well as Egyptian cultural area. Preparations from frankincense are mentioned in ancient texts from different cultures and were used thousands of years ago (Hippocrates, Celsus, Galen, Dioscorides, Hildegard von Bingen, Paracelsus). The list of health properties positively associated with frankincense is long, but most often it was used to maintain mobility even under unfavorable physical conditions.
Ingredients in Boswellia Vida Frankincense Capsules
Indian Frankincense – Boswellia serrata
Frankincense contains a mixture of essential oils, resins and proteins, the amounts of which vary depending on the species. Since Boswellia serrata has the highest content of the physiologically interesting ingredients, it is mainly this species that attracts the interest of today’s science. Boswellia Vida contains a dry extract of frankincense from India (Boswellia serrata) with a high content of these substances.
Frankincense is obtained from the gum resin of the frankincense tree (Boswellia). There are over 20 species of Boswellia, which belong to the balsam family (Burseraceae). Frankincense trees require special conditions to thrive, namely absolute dryness and soils with a certain mineral composition. These conditions are found only in certain Asian and African areas. More than 80% of frankincense comes from Somalia. Boswellia serrata is native to India, mainly in the low mountains along the Himalayas, but also in the northern and central parts of India. For extraction, trunks and branches are cut. The sticky, milky plant sap that emerges slowly dries in the air to form a viscous mass, the incense resin (olibanum). It is collected after a few weeks. For a good quality it needs a longer waiting time, the quality gets better and purer with time.
Sunflower lecithin as emulsifier
Boswellia Vida additionally contains lecithin from sunflower with 20% phosphatidylcholine. Lecithins influence the permeability of a membrane (skin, mucous membrane). The absorption and bioavailability of lipophilic (fat-soluble) ingredients is increased and improved by the addition of lecithins as an emulsifier according to study**.
Grape seed extract – OPC
Grape seed extract contains a remarkable amount of OPC (oligomeric proanthocyanidins). The grape seed extract from Italy used for Boswellia Vida has an excellent ORAC value of over 1’660’000 µmol TE/100g (antioxidant capacity value). OPC are very well researched secondary plant compounds (Studies at PubMed).
