Frankincense is a highly esteemed herb of Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years.
Incense trees are considered among the most valuable and most important herbs by professionals.
The main active substance is boswellic acid. These ingredients have been used for thousands of years for their anti-inflammatory, analgesic effects and on their effects on arthritis and malignant processes.
It has more beneficial effects than a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. This is expressed evenly over several channels at the same time by blocking inflammatory enzymes, but without side effects. It does not irritate the mucous membranes of the digestive tract.
Boswellic acid protects connective tissue and joints.
It significantly inhibits inflammatory processes in both osteoarthritis (degenerative arthritis) and rheumatoid arthritis (polyarthritis).
It reduces the formation of inflammatory neurotransmitters called cytokine.
Moreover, clinical trials have shown that it inhibits lipoxygenase in inflammatory bowel diseases and autoimmune conditions, which is an enzyme in the production of inflammatory molecules. This enzyme stimulates the production of leukotrienes, which are the main molecules of inflammatory processes.
There is increasing evidence that the constituent of incense wood, boswellic acid, can be really effective against cancer. By inhibiting NF-kappaB in tumor cells, the main character in the control of inflammation, incense extract can cause early cancerous cell death and tumor retraction.
Boswellic acid has synergy (mutually reinforcing effect) with humic acid, which makes the anti-inflammatory effect even more significant.
