Natural remedies for arthritis are receiving increasing coverage in the media due to their popularity. In fact natural
remedies for anything are getting more and more popular as ever growing number of people find out that many
actually work with minimal side effects if any at all. Natural remedies for arthritis that I have read about have been
derived from plants: for instance Boswellia Serrata Extract (BSE) which is what I am going to discuss in detail in
this article. It is without a doubt that in chronic illness, such as arthritis, that is not immediately life threatening,
people tend to seek out natural remedies which they would prefer to take as opposed to synthetic medication.
This is also because of the notion that if sufferers are going to take any medication for the rest of their lives,
they’d rather take something that is natural to remove or minimize any side effects which are inevitably
associated with equivalent synthetic medication.

  • 1. Natural Remedies For Arthritisby Eva Somani -http://www.simplymakingmoneyonline.net/products/natural-remedies-arthritis/Natural Remedies For ArthritisNatural Remedies For Arthritis – Boswellia Serrata ExtractNatural remedies for arthritis are receiving increasing coverage in the media due to their popularity. In fact naturalremedies for anything are getting more and more popular as ever growing number of people find out that manyactually work with minimal side effects if any at all. Natural remedies for arthritis that I have read about have beenderived from plants: for instance Boswellia Serrata Extract (BSE) which is what I am going to discuss in detail inthis article. It is without a doubt that in chronic illness, such as arthritis, that is not immediately life threatening,people tend to seek out natural remedies which they would prefer to take as opposed to synthetic medication.This is also because of the notion that if sufferers are going to take any medication for the rest of their lives,they’d rather take something that is natural to remove or minimize any side effects which are inevitablyassociated with equivalent synthetic medication.Joint Support FormulaThe Boswellia Serrata TreeAlso known as Herbal Medicine or Herbalism, plants have been used by humans for medicinal purposes since theearliest times in human history and documented since at least 1900 BC: the case in point being the Ayurvedasystem in India. Herbalism has continued since Ayurveda and today, enriched by other great civilizations alongthe way such as Chinese, Egyptian and Greek, it has never been more popular or sought after. Currently,Herbalism not only remains vibrant in developing countries where the cost of pharmaceuticals remains prohibitiveto greater part of the population, but is increasingly being appreciated even in the developed countries despitewidespread availability of pharmaceuticals.Joint Support FormulaNatural Remedies For Arthritis – The Ailmentpage 1 / 4
  • 2. Natural Remedies For Arthritisby Eva Somani -http://www.simplymakingmoneyonline.net/products/natural-remedies-arthritis/The Natural Healing SystemBefore I delve into natural remedies for arthritis, it is perhaps appropriate at this stage to discuss what thecondition they are meant to alleviate actually is. For those people with arthritis reading this article, it may seem alltoo academic: you know exactly what arthritis feels like having to live with constant pain and the inconvenienceassociated with it including limitations in using your afflicted limbs. It is a truly debilitating condition and beingchronic can, unfortunately, last a lifetime. Arthritis is basically a condition of the bone joint that is inflamed-justthinking about it makes me wince! There are in fact over a hundred types of arthritic conditions including the wellknown ones such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis and septic arthritis. The pain associatedwith arthritis must be excruciating since it involves inflammation of one or both end of bones in a joint, of the areaaround the joint and also stiffening of muscles in and around the area. This must make any movement in theafflicted joint very painful indeed. Arthritis is predominantly disease of the old age but it can also afflict youngerpeople.Joint Support FormulaChemical Structure Of Boswellic AcidThere are many natural remedies for arthritis, but the one I wish to concentrate on is the resin derived from theplant Boswellia Serrata, a native of northern India. Also known for its use as a frankincense, this natural producthas been used in Ayurvedic medicine for hundreds of years for treating-guess what?-arthritis! The mode of actionby which Boswellia Serrata Extract (BSE) is effective against arthritis is as an anti-inflammatory agent just like thesynthetic Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) such as aspirin, ibuprofen and naproxen, but withoutany potential long term side effects. The anti-inflammation effects of BSE has also been demonstrated in otherchronic conditions such as bronchial asthma, ulcerative colitis and Chron’s disease. The active compound in BSEis thought to be a family of Boswellic acids which are a series of pentacyclic triterpene molecules: these arepage 2 / 4

The initial phase is called acuteinflammation which is characterized by pain, heat, redness, swelling, and loss of function. Inflammation is reallyonly a mechanism used by the body to disinfect and repair the site of trauma by immobilizing it with pain so thathealing could be expedited. Inside the area of trauma, in the acute phase of inflammation, there is increasedmovement of plasma and leukocytes (white blood cells). All this activity at the site is initiating a host ofbiochemical reactions which is leading to destruction of pathogen and dead tissue and of healing and rejuvinationof new tissue. One of these biochemical reactions is the production of chemicals called leukotrienes by leukocyteswhich along with histamines and prostaglandins are mediators of inflammation. BSE is one of the better if not thebest natural remedies for arthritis, which exerts its anti-inflammatory action by blocking the production ofleukotrienes which not only reduces the symptoms of acute inflammation but also heals the affected area morequickly by increasing blood supply to it.Joint Support FormulaNormal And Arthritic JointsA couple of clinical studies on BSE are worth noting here which were carried out in India: in one study, 178rheumatoid arthritis patients (75 years and over) were given the substance over a period of few months to 5years. A vast majority, 87% of the trial sample, saw marked improvements such as decrease in tenderness,page 3 / 4

Such a result, by any standards is an outstandingoutcome.Joint Support FormulaIn yet another study that was not only placebo controlled but also a double blind and randomized trial, carried outon 30 patients suffering from osteoarthritis of the knee at the Indira Gandhi Medical College in Nagpur, India. Thestudy was designed to evaluate the effectiveness and side effects of BSE. In the study, half the patients weregiven the BSE and the other half placebo for initial 8 weeks; the groups were then given opposing medication foran additional 8 weeks. The results obtained were significantly positive towards the effects of BSE: there wasdiminished swelling and pain as well as increased flexibility of the knees. The patients who had received BSEwere also able to walk much further.Joint Support FormulaIn summary therefore, BSE is recommended for those suffering knee and joint pain from osteoarthritis.
