Question:
Is Boswellia not well absorbed? Should I take it with food?

Answer:
Yes, the key compound in Boswellia serrata extracts, AKBA, is fat-soluble and not well absorbed if taken only with water. Taking Boswellia extracts with fatty foods may greatly increase absorption. Certain special formulations of Boswellia extract may also enhance its bioavailability, as discussed in the Joint Health Supplements Review (Covering Glucosamine, Chondroitin, MSM and Boswellia) >>
