It sure reads well in the literature- several studies show it is quite powerful, on par with 5ASA drugs. My experience was negative, though- it actually causes me to flare up! I have tried it on three or four occasions for a couple weeks and always end up quitting due to it actually flaring me. I worsen drastically (much worse) when I try any 5ASA drug so sometimes I wonder if there is some commonality in why I seem to react to boswellia- anyway, I am sure it helps some people.
