Remember frankincense, a resin, which is being extracted from Boswellia tree. The resin is being used in many religious ceremonies, thanks to its aroma. Yet again, its new use has been noticed, but not for religious purpose.
This time, it has been noticed for its anti-inflammatory properties, which will be quite beneficial in therapies for asthma, and rheumatoid arthritis. Dr. Oliver Werz, from the Friedrich Schiller University in Germany, was of the view that frankincense is known to Ayurvedic medicine world for a long time, but it has never been used in medicines that are being supplied in Germany and Europe.
One of the main reasons of it can be that there were never enough evidences that could encourage researchers to try the resin. However, now when it has been confirmed then there are chances that the resin can be used for its curative effect.
"Boswellic acids interact with several different proteins that are part of inflammatory reactions, but most of all with an enzyme which is responsible for the synthesis of prostaglandin E2", said Oliver.
Experts were of the view that there are bright possibilities that frankincense will not only be more effective, but it will also have fewer side effects.
