Boswellia oleogum resin prone to adulteration, new bulletin outlines

From -11-Jul-2018

“Based on the available data, it appears that the adulteration of B. serrata resin is both a common and long-standing occurrence that must be addressed with appropriate quality control protocols,” ​wrote Dr. Allison McCutcheon, PhD, a Vancouver-based expert in herbal medicine research, in a new report​​.

Sales of boswellia supplements are growing rapidly in the US, particularly in the mass market channel, where sales increased from approximately $143,000 in 2013 to $14.6 million in 2017, according to data from ABC's latest Herbalgram report​​.
