Boswellia serrata contains anti inflammatory compounds that reduce inflammatory bowel disease, arthritis, cardiovascular disease and cancer metastasis. Boswellia terpenes and acids, particularly, AKBA, 3-o-acetyl-11-keto-beta-bowelllic acid, inhibits inflammatory cells that stick to blood vessels causing many inflammatory diseases, including stroke and memory loss. Another component of Boswellia, incensole acetate, inhibits an inflammatory regulating complex inhibiting or slowing chronic inflammation throughout the body.
Boswellia is also neuroprotective against traumatic brain injury. Neuroprotection originates from incensole acetate. The effect is also antidepressant/antianxiety and benefits asmatic bronchitis.
Cancer and tumor necrosis is also benefited by Boswellia. It inhibits pro inflammatory cytokines and mediators. Ninety percent of death from cancer results from tumor metastasis, caused by inflammation. Recent research also found Boswellia decreases precancerous polyps and their formation in the small and large intestine up to 60% AKBA, the most potent boswellic acid, induced cell death in central nervous system tumors.
In recent studies, Boswellia extracts reduced the size of arterial plaque up to 50%. Extracts also inhibit platelet stickiness and clumping. Chronic inflammation reduces blood flow, resulting in arteriosclerosis, cardiovascular, peripheral vascular disease and general aging. In rat studies, Boswellia reduced total cholesterol up to 48% and increased good cholesterol, HDL, by 30%. This can be done by reducing changes in pro inflammatory gene expressions.
In arthritic studies, Boswellia compounds have reduced and improved conditions in knee and osteoarthritis.
The healing compounds in Frankincense essential oil includes monoterpene hydrocarbons, ketones and spiritually, sesqueterpenes. These properties transform the recipient beginning with improved digestion, reduced inflammation and tumor formation,protecting immunity to transformation of the psycho spiritual nature of enlightenment. Boswellia serrata originates from India and has been used in Ayurvedic healing for many centuries. The properties of Boswellia carteri and sacra are considered the same. Sacra, Oman, is more expensive and has a lighter fragrance. When it comes to healing, the body's innate consciousness takes the best of available properties and makes the most of it. I have all three available. Contact me if I can help you. I am involved in a small group of international distllers that grow and distill onsite in small, organically grown quantities.
