Frankincense is known to have numerous health benefits. Frankincense resin is collected from the Boswellia Sacra Tree. See our coverage of this wondrous tree under our Research section: Community Index of Plants. Here’s a taste of what you’ll find:
Asthma – Boswellia can play a role in reducing leukotrienes (in short, inflammatory molecules involved in asthma attacks), which causes bronchial muscles to contract. A study, which is featured on our pages, of the herb’s effect on bronchial asthma found that patients who took boswellia experienced decreased asthma symptoms and asthma indicators.
Emenagogue & Womb Care – Opens the delayed and obstructed menstruation process. It is very effective in curing the symptoms accompanied with Post Menstrual Syndrome and menses like fatigue, headache, nausea, pain in the abdominal region. Frankincense oil regulates estrogen hormone production and therefore reduces the chances of formation of tumors or cysts in the uterus. It also helps maintain menstrual cycles.
