The Science
Excess levels of the enzyme 5-lipoxygenase, or 5-LOX, set in motion degenerative changes that have been linked to numerous chronic health issues in aging individuals (1-4). Healthy aging requires low levels of 5-LOX.

The typical American diet adds to the danger. Foods rich in omega-6 fatty acids like red meat, poultry, eggs and dairy products, along with high-glycemic carbohydrates, trigger overproduction of arachidonic acid. In response to high levels of arachidonic acid, the body produces excess 5-LOX enzyme.

5-LOX breaks down arachidonic acid to degenerative compounds like leukotriene B4 (5), a molecule that is linked to numerous health concerns. 5-LOX itself facilitates undesirable cell division changes.

The good news is that extract of the Indian plant Boswellia serrata has been shown to inhibit 5-LOX. Used for centuries to support joint, muscle and gut health, boswellia acts a natural 5-LOX inhibitor, intervening at the cellular level to block its unwanted effects. Confirmatory data reveal that a compound contained in boswellia called AKBA, or 3-O-acetyl-11-keto-ß-boswellic acid (6,7), is the key to its beneficial action.

Traditionally, boswellia was combined with other Ayurvedic herbs to enhance its bio-availability and joint health. Boswellia is a resin and therefore hard to digest and absorb. Herbs like ginger, turmeric and ashwagandha were used for thousands of years along with boswellia to boost the absorption of the heavy boswellic acids.
