Yesterday we talked about Boswellia's well known benefits in joint care and joint pain relief. However Boswellia or Shallaki as it is known in Sanskrit, is attributed with several other benefits as well.
In Ayurveda, Boswellia is classified as part of the Guggal group all of which are gum resins - an important one being Guggul. In fact Boswellia is also known as salai guggul or guggul's cousin. This group of herbs has a wide range of benefits.
