Boswellia – Parkinson’s Disease Help, Study Shows

serrata is a tree which grows in dry mountainous regions of India, Northern Africa and the Middle East. The resin extract has been used for headaches, colitis, inflammation, to name a few. Recent scientific reports indicated the ability of Boswellia serrata as a potent antioxidant anti-inflammatory agent, and a modulator of immune system. The aim of the current study was to investigate the beneficial effects of Boswellia serrata resin extract at doses of 125, 250 and 500 mg/kg on motor dysfunction and oxidative stress markers in a 6-OHDA model of Parkinson’s Disease .

A 2019 study found that in animal models, Boswellia had an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effect, which appeared to protect neurons in the brain and improve motor function in a rat model of Parkinson’s Disease.

Studies have shown that inflammation and oxidative stress contribute to the neurodegenerative changes observed in Parkinson’s disease. Boswellic acids (BAs) are pentacyclic triterpene molecules of plant origin that have been utilized for treating many inflammatory conditions. BAs are promising agents in slowing the progression of Parkinson’s disease .
