The gum resin of the Boswellia serrata tree has been used medicinally for centuries, particularly in India, the Middle East, and in Northern Africa. Traditional healers used the Boswellia resin to treat arthritis, colitis, sores, coughs, asthma, and even snakebites.
Boswellia serrata, or frankincense, has long been renowned for its potent anti-inflammatory properties. Studies have shown that boswellic acid reduces inflammation by blocking the pro-inflammatory enzyme 5-lipoxygenase which then inhibits the synthesis of leukotrienes. Both of these enzymes are thought to contribute to chronic inflammation found in certain diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, cancer and asthma.

"Dietary support with Boswellia resin in canine inflammatory joint and spinal disease."
In Switzerland in 2004, a veterinary clinical trial was conducted comparing conditions of dogs with osteoarthritis and degenerative conditions before and after treatment with an extract of Boswellia serrata. The extract was given once a day with food at 400 mg/10 kg of body weight for six weeks. After just two weeks, researchers noted that 71% of the dogs showed improvement. By week six, significant positive changes were shown in increased smoothness of gait, and reduction of lameness and pain. A few dogs had brief, reversible episodes of loose stools. Data suggested that a standardized extract of Boswellia serrata could be recommended for symptom relief in dogs with osteoarthritic disease.
