This double-blind, placebo-controlled study compared the herb boswellia, standardized for 30% AK boswellic acid, to a placebo in 75 people with mild to moderate osteoarthritis of the knee. And the results were amazing. . . .  Compared to the placebo, 52% improved on the pain scale, 62.2% improved on the stiffness scale, 49.3% improved on the functional ability scale. There was also a 46.3% reduction in an enzyme that degrades the cartilage. The number of people who needed the help of pain medication was 72.2% higher in the placebo group. The most effective dose of the herb was 125mg twice a day. The boswellia was as safe as the placebo.
