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.
