Everyone ages at different rates, but the effects of aging are generally universal.  Changes in skin, memory and painful joints are very common.

Luckily there are natural substances that can help support our bodies through the aging process.  One of the best is boswellia, an anti-inflammatory herb.

A study done to test the efficacy of boswellia on subjects with osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee showed that it reduced pain and improved physical function.  The study authors concluded, “…it may improve joint health by reducing the enzymatic degradation of cartilage in OA patients.”
