Product Description

It is a series of pentacyclic triterpene molecules that is produced by plants in the genus Boswellia. Like many other terpenes, Boswellic Acid appears in the resin of the plant that exudes them; it is estimated that they make up 30% of the resin of Boswellia serrata. While boswellic acid is a major component of the resin the steam or hydro distilled frankincense essential oil does not contain any Boswellic Acid as these components are non-volatile and too large to come over in the steam distillation process. Clients can avail our compound in different quantity packaging options and at affordable prices.

Structure:

The boswellic acids are organic acids, consisting of a pentacyclic triterpene, a carboxyl group and at least one other functional group. Alpha-boswellic acid and beta-boswellic acid, C30H48O3 both have an additional hydroxyl group; they differ only in their triterpene structure. Acetyl-alpha-boswellic acid and acetyl-beta-boswellic acid, C32H50O4, replace the hydroxyl group with an acetyl group.

Other boswellic acids include the keto-boswellic acids and their acetyl counterparts.

Uses:

Beta-boswellic acid, keto-beta-boswellic acid, and acetyl-keto-beta-boswellic acid (AKBA) have been indicated in apoptosis of cancer cells, in particular brain tumors and cells affected by leukemia or colon cancer.
