Curcumin is derived from turmeric that has been traditionally known for its medicinal properties, now validated by scientific studies. Morpheme Remedies Boswellia Curcumin 500 mg combines the multiple benefits of these two ingredients in a unique dietary supplement.
INGREDIENTS AND COMPOSITION
Each capsule of Morpheme Remedies Boswellia Curcumin 500 mg contains 300 mg of Boswellia Serrata extract and 200 mg of Turmeric extract. The Boswellia acid concentration is more than 65 percent, while the turmeric extract is standardized at 95 percent curcuminoids to give you the best results for bone and joint health.
WHAT IS BOSWELLIA& WHAT DOES SCIENCE SAY ABOUT IT?
Boswellia is an extract from Boswellia Serrata plant which is native to India, North Africa, and the Middle East. It has been one of the prized herbs of Ayurveda for centuries, and also finds mention in the texts of classical Ayurvedic science for its beneficial use in arthritis. Modern scientific studies support that claim by pointing towards Boswellia’s anti-arthritic, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic properties all of which promote bone and joint wellness. 
WHAT IS CURCUMIN& WHAT DOES SCIENCE SAY ABOUT IT?
Turmeric is a staple of the Indian diet. It is the powdered root of the plant named Curcuma longa. Curcumin is the most important constituent of turmeric and is responsible for the spice’s yellow-orange color. Like Boswellia, Ayurveda has recognized the health benefits of turmeric, and now modern scientific research describes it as ‘the golden nutraceutical’ that is useful in multiple diseases, including osteoarthritis. 
BENEFITS OF MORPHEME REMEDIES BOSWELLIA CURCUMIN 500 MG FOR BONES AND JOINTS
Boswellia’s anti-inflammatory qualities and Curcumin’s antioxidant properties make this supplement helpful against diseases of bones and joints.
1. HELPS FIGHT OSTEOARTHRITIS
Osteoarthritis is a condition in which the cartilage that acts as protective tissue between two bones in a joint begins to break down, causing the bones to rub against each other. Two prominent symptoms of this condition are pain and reduced physical function.
Boswellia Serrata extract has been found to be useful in osteoarthritis in two scientific studies conducted on 85 participants. In the studies, the participants were given Boswellia Serrata extract for 90 days. The results showed that the extract “reduced pain by a mean of 17 points” and it also “improved physical function by 8 points” . Another study was conducted on 30 patients with osteoarthritis of the knee. The patients who took the Boswellia Serrata extract for eight weeks reported “decrease in knee pain, increased knee flexion and increased walking distance”, thereby proving Boswellia’s efficacy against knee osteoarthritis. 
Likewise, Curcumin extract from turmeric is known to be effective in alleviating the symptoms of joint arthritis. A meta-analysis of eight randomized clinical trials provides scientific evidence to make a case for using curcumin extract against arthritis. 
But the best results are observed when both Boswellia and Curcumin are used together, as they are in this supplement by Morpheme Remedies. A scientific study was conducted in 2018 on 201 patients of osteoarthritis, aged from 40 to 70. In the clinical trial, the patients were given a combination of both Boswellia and Curcumin for 12 weeks. The favorable effect of these two ingredients became visible after three months. The study concluded that both Boswellia and Curcumin improved physical performance and reduced pain-related symptoms in patients with osteoarthritis. This was probably due to the synergistic effects of both these ingredients. 
2. HELPS FIGHT RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS
Inflammation is the immune system’s natural response to fight any harmful stimuli. It is generally useful, but it may turn harmful when the immune system malfunctions and ends up fighting its own cells, thereby leading to permanent inflammation in many joints in our body. This condition is called Rheumatoid Arthritis. 
Boswellia has been scientifically found to be a powerful anti-inflammatory agent. It contains boswellic acid which inhibits the enzyme responsible for inflammation. In a study done on 260 patients, the extract of Boswellia Serrata was found to be effective against rheumatoid arthritis. 
Similarly, a review of the anti-inflammatory qualities of Curcumin acknowledges that curcumin may exert its anti-inflammatory activity by inhibiting the molecules that play a role in inflammation . In a clinical trial done on 18 patients of rheumatoid arthritis, curcumin helped reduce morning stiffness and joint swelling and increased the walking time of patients. 
3. HELPS RELIEVE PAIN
An analgesic is a substance that reduces pain. The analgesic property of Boswellia was observed in a randomized placebo-controlled trial on 12 healthy humans. The volunteers were subjected to a pain test after a dose of Boswellia Serrata. The study concluded that Boswellia Serrata “significantly increased the pain threshold (the upper limit of withstanding pain) and pain tolerance force (tolerance for pain) compared to placebo”. 
Curcumin, too, has been found to display the same pain relieving results as the allopathic analgesic drug diclofenac sodium. A study done on 80 patients of knee osteoarthritis found that after four weeks of treatment, curcumin had almost the same effect as diclofenac sodium. 
4. SOURCE OF ANTIOXIDANTS
Our bodies need antioxidants to curb the harmful effects of free radicals. Curcumin is a potent antioxidant that displays free radical scavenging activity by increasing the glutathione level .
5. GOOD FOR THE CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM
Not just this, Curcumin may also benefit patients at the risk of cardiovascular disease. An analysis of seven scientific studies involving 649 patients noted Curcumin’s ability to protect cardiovascular disease patients by improving serum lipid levels .
6. HELPS FIGHT BRAIN DISORDERS
Last, but not the least, Curcumin has been specifically highlighted for its potential use in age-related neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, and prion diseases. 
7. HELPS FIGHT BRONCHIAL ASTHMA
Likewise, scientific studies point towards the efficacy of Boswellia Serrata against bronchial asthma .
