New Research Suggests Frankincense May Help Prevent and Treat a Range of Serious Diseases

What the wise men knew as frankincense, today’s medical researchers know as boswellia serrata–a gum-like resin scraped from the boswellia tree native to India. The Baylor Research Institute in Dallas is currently studying an important chemical compound found in boswellia. This compound has been found to have powerful anti-inflammatory properties, making it an effective treatment for a host of inflammatory diseases and conditions, including arthritis, asthma, Crohn’s disease and ulcers.
