Sabinsa Corporation will present a Vendor Works presentation on their proprietary Boswellin® PS at SupplySide West on Wednesday October 20, 2010, 4:00-4:50 pm in Galileo Rm. 901, Venetian Hotel, Las Vegas, NV. Lakshmi Prakash, Ph.D., Vice President of Innovation & Business Development, Sabinsa Corporation, is slated to give the presentation: Boswellin PS: The Next Generation Boswellia serrata Extract.
The healthful properties of Boswellia serrata (Indian Frankincense) have been validated in multiple clinical studies. The gum resin of Boswellia serrata (N.O. Burseraceae) known as “Dhup”, Indian Frankincense, or Indian olibanum, is valued as a source of healthful phytonutrients. Such extracts are used as ingredients in dietary supplements and cosmetics, to support healthy aging. The most popular application in dietary supplements is in joint health support products, to support normal joint functions and mobility. Extracts of Boswellia serrata gum are, however, resinous in nature, and the biomarker boswellic acids are insoluble in water.
Boswellin PS represents an improvement over existing conventional Boswellia serrata extracts, providing manufacturers with a more water soluble version with enhanced joint health support potential. Boswellin PS offers a unique release profile for the active ingredients. In addition to boswellic acids, (the active principles for which Boswellia extracts are conventionally standardized), the PS version contains PolysalTM, a natural polysaccharide fraction from the gum resin of Boswellia serrata. The Polysal fraction is water soluble, and enhances the healthful role of boswellic acids in the extract.
