Dosing

Adults (over 18 years old)

There is no proven effective dose for boswellia. For asthma, 300 milligrams three times a day of boswellia powdered gum resin capsules (S- compound®) taken by mouth has been used. Another dose that has been taken is 400 milligrams three times daily (extract standardized to 37.5% boswellic acids per dose). For Crohn's disease, 1,200 milligrams three times daily of standardized Boswellia serrata gum resin H15® has been taken by mouth for up to eight weeks. For rheumatoid arthritis, 400 milligrams three times daily of standardized Boswellia serrata gum resin H15® has been taken by mouth. For ulcerative colitis, 350- 400 milligrams three times daily (extract standardized to 37.5% boswellic acids per dose) has been taken by mouth.

Children (under 18 years old)

Safety, efficacy, and dosing have not been systematically studied. Some experts believe that regular use of boswellia may mask the symptoms of asthma in children and may delay diagnosis. Use in children should be supervised by a qualified healthcare professional.
