Introduction
 
 
The book titled Boswellin® The Anti-inflammatory Phytonutrient, written by M. Majeed et al., was published in 1996 by Nutriscience Publishers, Incorporated. When this book was published, much of the patent literature concerning Boswellia serrata, its pharmacologically active constituents specifically known as beta-boswellic acids1, and similar species (Boswellia Carterii) was unavailable. Since the book’s publication, several studies and patents have been published which explain the mechanism by which the boswellic acids inhibit inflammation. The beneficial role of boswellic acids in inflammatory conditions has also been discussed. This new research adds to the breadth of knowledge of Boswellia serrata and is summarized herein.
