Boswellia has been clinically studied. Boswellia serrata extracts derived from the gum of Indian Frankincense are used in traditional medicine. Boswellic acids are the main constituents responsible for the desired effects of boswellia in joint, gastrointestinal, and respiratory health and wellness.
NovaSOL® technology provides a liquid micelle solubilized boswellia extract with unique properties
that results in increased bioavailability.
Standard boswellia extracts usually have very limited bioavailability due to their poor water solubility.
When used in food supplements, boswellic acid concentrations in vivo are often far below levels
needed for biologic activity. Improving the bioavailability of these compounds is key to assuring full bioactivity of boswellia.
A recently published scientific study demonstrated the enhanced absorption of boswellic acids from
NovaSOL® Boswellia in comparison with a native extract1. The study demonstrated that this stable, highly bioavailable solubilisate resulted in higher levels of the active ingredients in the blood.
AQUANOVA AG, a Food Safety, certified B2B manufacturer of liquid colloidal formulations, NovaSOL®, is a product portfolio – ranging from Health and Private Label Solutions, to food additives – that leans on robust science and technology to inform its products. The patent-protected and awarded NovaSOL® technology creates a unique and nature-like micelle structure, which is based on decades of R&D. Additionally, NovaSOL® significantly enhances the efficacy and application scope of natural ingredients, and at IFF, we’re proud to be a distributor of this portfolio.
