Did you know that Frankincense isn't really a plant? Frankincense is actually the yellowish brown sap produced by Boswellia trees that grow in Oman, Yemen and Somalia. Anciently, Frankincense was thought to be the "sweat of the Gods." But today, there is much scientific evidence creating many questions about this miracle oil.
Here are the facts:
1- Frankincense has excellent, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties.
- Check out this blurb from an article I read: "Boswellic acids interact with several different proteins that are part of inflammatory reactions, and most notably with an enzyme which is responsible for the synthesis of prostaglandin E2 –one of the mediators of the immune response and plays a decisive role in the process of inflammation. It can also be expected that boswellic acids have less side effects than today's prevalent anti-inflammatory [pharmaceutical] treatments." (http://www.worldhealth.net/news/frankincense-exerts-anti-inflammatory-effects/)
- "One of the gifts of Frankincense is its’ chemistry - sesquiterpenes--can cross the Blood Brain Barrier (BBB) and facilitates oxygenation of cells for optimal communication at the cellular level. In a study that has already triggered follow-up work, sesquiterpenes were shown to increase the number of certain receptors in the brain and are now considered prospects for treatment of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease and schizophrenia."(Elisabetsky,E., 1997 Anti convulsive proper.. Erreira,F., Santos, M.S. Faro, C., Pires, E., Carvalho, A.P., Cunha, P.A.,Macedo, T., 1996...)
- This is why Frankincense should be used for ANY type of neurological disease such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's Disease, Epilepsy, Schizophrenia, dementia, Autism, etc.
- I recently read an article on BBC.com that explained this phenomenon. It said that, "scientists have observed that there is some agent within frankincense which stops cancer spreading, and which induces cancerous cells to close themselves down...Cancer starts when the DNA code within the cell's nucleus becomes corrupted," he says. "It seems frankincense has a re-set function. It can tell the cell what the right DNA code should be. "Frankincense separates the 'brain' of the cancerous cell - the nucleus - from the 'body' - the cytoplasm, and closes down the nucleus to stop it reproducing corrupted DNA codes."(http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/8505251.stm)
