Hi, I want to share my experience with boswellia (or frankincense) and asthma. I have long had allergy-triggered asthma. My asthma was somewhat mild (wheezing rather than a full-on attack), but still required albuterol to feel better. I'm allergic to dust mites, so as soon as I was in a dusty room I would feel my lungs tighten up, and get other symptoms like an itchy nose, throat, etc.
For a different health issue, I started taking some supplements. Among them was Boswellia. I took Boswellia and Maitake mushrooms for the longest--over a year--and I noticed that at the end of this time, if I encountered an allergen like dust, it triggered all my allergic reactions EXCEPT asthma.
I didn't notice any other change in my routine except taking Boswellia and Maitake. I looked up Boswellia online, and saw that it is used for asthma, so I began to draw the conclusion that it has helped me. Even since I stopped taking Boswellia, I have not had to use an inhaler for months.
I'm interested to see if anyone has experienced using boswellia for asthma (and if it could have been the maitake mushrooms, even though they are not described online as having that effect).
I took Boswellia, two 307 mg tablets (65% Boswellic Acids) each morning.
