Diseases

  • Brain tumors
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Colitis (inflammatory bowel disease)
  • Colon polyps
  • Uterine fibroids

Finding High-Quality Frankincense

 

The anti-inflammatory properties of frankincense are only found in the gum resin, so it’s important to find a frankincense product that does NOT contain the leaves or the bark. The product should be standardized to contain 30% to 85% boswellic acids and it should also contain AKBBA (acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid), and PS (Polysal-polysaccharide) [1].
