Many of us take mobility for granted. However, millions of people find the simple
act of lifting an arm, bending a knee or even wiggling a toe may cause agonizing
pain. The aches and discomfort may be caused by arthritis, an injury or excessive
wear and tear, but they can also occur because we are living longer than our ancestors.
With average life expectancy on the rise, as many a three-fourths of the population
over 50 will be affected by symptoms of osteoarthritis, a condition that may be
accompanied by a breakdown in the cartilage found between bone joints. Without
this protective padding, bones rub together, causing pain, tenderness, swelling, stiffness, and sometimes, deformity. There are over four million people suffering from arthritis in Canada, with one in seven people affected. Arthritis is also the most common cause of long-term disability in Canada.

The connective tissue and cartilage in your body includes a natural compound called glucosamine. The cartilage important for cushioning the joints can lose its ability to support healthy cellular growth as we age. The body’s production of glucosamine-an amino sugar-decreases with age.

Boswellia has a long history of being used to promote bone and joint health. The
large, balsamic boswellia tree is grown primarily in India and nearby regions, where
preparations of this herb are used by physicians to treat everything from dysentery
to ringworm. Collection of the tree’s dried oleoresin secretions occurs much like the process of extracting sap from maple trees for maple syrup. Boswellia is also recommended for helping lower back pain and aching muscles.
