Certified Naturals™ Bioavailable Boswellia features the patented Boswellia Phytosome® known as Casperome®.
Casperome is a new delivery form of Boswellia that addresses the absorption issues associated with typical Boswellia extracts. Using patented Phytosome® technology, which complexes Boswellia extract with sunflower lecithin, Casperome Boswellia has demonstrated significantly improved absorption.
The lecithin utilized in the Phytosome technology protects Casperome’s Boswellic acids from degradation by water and shuttles the acids through the intestinal tract more efficiently. This mimics how taking Boswellic acids with a fatty meal would improve absorption. By using the Phytosome delivery method, Boswellic acids test 300-400 percent higher in blood measurements when patients take Casperome vs standard Boswellia extracts.(1)
Not only is Casperome better absorbed, but it is absorbed faster to deliver quicker pain relief. Casperome also remains in the system longer which makes it ideal for one time per day dosing which is more convenient for consumers.
Another major difference between Casperome and other medicinal Boswellia formulations is that Casperome offers the whole bouquet of Boswellic acids naturally found in Boswellia extract. There are 11 major Boswellic acids, but most commercial Boswellia extracts focus on a single acid, usually AKBA which is thought to inhibit 5-lox enzyme. However, recent studies have downplayed the role of AKBA in the clinical effectiveness of Boswellia extract and highlighted other acids such as β-BA. Overall, it is clear that the Boswellic acids in the extract are best when working in conjunction with each other as intended by nature.
Casperome has already shown to be effective for a wide variety of types of pain:
- Osteo-muscular joint pain and inflammation
- Ankle sprains
- IBS (irritable bowel syndrome)
- Radiculopathy (pinched nerves)
A consistent finding in these studies was that Casperome is safe and that it can be used in conjunction with conventional treatments (e.g. NSAIDs or physical therapy) while showing reductions in pain that decreased the need for these conventional treatments.
