Boswellia phytosome is Boswellia extract that has been chemically bound to phospholipids to increase its absorption. Casperome® – its trade name – has been clinically studied to determine its ability to provide a healthy balance of inflammatory cytokines, which are the chemical messengers that control the responses of the immune system. These studies have shown that Boswellia phytosome supports a healthy inflammatory response in the respiratory tract and the GI tract, as well as in the joints, muscles, and tendons. Boswellia phytosome also helps balance the cerebral inflammatory response to protect brain tissue.
Boswellia phytosome provides superior absorption compared to non-complexed boswellia. In fact, plasma levels of boswellic acids were 3-7 times higher for the phytosome preparation depending on which boswellic acid was analyzed. The phytosome preparation also produced tissue levels from 3-35 times higher. Thorne’s Boswellia Phytosome contains a full spectrum of boswellic acids.
