What is Swanson Superior Herbs Boswellia Serrata Standardised?

You may not already know it but you'd have to have been living under a rock for your whole life to have never heard of Boswellia Serrata before. Of course you and I know it by another name altogether - Frankincense.

Every child at one stage or other questioned the so-called wisdom of the three men who delivered unto the infant Jesus gifts of Myrrh and ‘Frankensteinsence' - Gold, of course made perfect sense. It had value after all - so it might come as a surprise to you to learn that at one stage the value of Frankincense far outstripped that of Gold.

So hard was it to source the tree (Oblicum Indicum - also known as Salai) that traders heaped extra value on the incense on account of its obscurity, claiming that it was guarded by fierce mountain dragons. In fact, the tree was so acclimated to growing in desperately arid conditions that when they were planted outside the Egyptian Temples to honour the Gods Ra and Horus by the Queen of Sheba, they died soon after, incapable of adjusting to the environment.

Nowadays Swanson Superior Herbs Boswellia Serrata Standardised is mostly found growing across the asian subcontinent - between India and the Punjab region which extends to Pakistan. Harvesting it can be a long and painstaking process, as farmers make several small incisions on the tree and wait for the sap to leak out and then harden. Once a resin is formed it is scraped off the tree, although only a few incisions can be made to the tree at a time or it wilts and dies. For this reason Swanson Superior Herbs Boswellia Serrata Standardised is a unique and potent source of anti-inflammatories and antioxidants.
