Frankincense Benefits

For over 5,000 years frankincense has been used to support the immune system, fight infection and cure disease. Today the most common benefits of Frankincense include:

  • Reduces Inflammation
  • Destroys Cancer
  • Spiritual Awareness
  • Boosts Immunity
  • Fights Infections
  • Improves Anxiety
  • Heals skin and reduces acne and scarring

A press release by University of Leicester in the UK, published a few days before Christmas last year, has rekindled the theory that the “wise men” weren’t just bringing wealth to Jesus, but medicine.

According to the announcement that went after being issued, “University of Leicester researchers discover cancer-killing properties of frankincense in ovarian cancer.” Using the compound AKBA (acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid), the Omani government-funded research has for the first time shown frankincense’s ability to target cancer cells in late-stage ovarian cancer patients.

Lead researcher Kamla Al-Salmani explained: “After a year of studying the AKBA compound with ovarian cancer cell, we have been able to show it is effective at killing the cancer cells.

Frankincense is taken by many people with no known side effects. This finding has enormous potential to be taken to a clinical trial in the future and developed into an additional treatment for ovarian cancer.

Cancer Killing Power Of Frankincense

Used because of its anti-inflammatory properties, Frankincense also known as boswellia serrata has been a favorite as a folk medicine for several health concerns including asthma, gastroenteritis, and skin conditions.

New research, like the study that came out of the University of Leicester, has recently suggested that frankincense’s disease reversing power may be even more encompassing than previously suspected.

Successfully linking AKBA as a potential treatment for brain, breast, colon, pancreatic, prostate, and stomach cancers, research trials are filling medical journals like Carcinogenesis and PLoS One about Boswellia serrata’s cancer fighting prowers.

According to researchers out of Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, the frankincense cancer killing effects are due in part to it regulating cellular epigenetic machinery, which highlights its ability to influence genes to promote healing.

Baylor cancer scientists emphasize that this potency makes Boswellia viable candidate for both cancer prevention and treatment!
