Abstract:The article discusses the blocking effects of the herb boswellia to the lethal pro-inflammatory enzyme called 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX). Researchers discovered that boswellia produces anti-inflammatory effects that are distinct from nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. German scientists have demonstrated the inhibitory function of boswellia extracts against cancer growth in humans. Moreover, research shows that it inhibits atherosclerosis, arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease and asthma.
