Study: Frankincense Essential Oil Superior to Chemotherapy in Destroying Cancer Cells
What is frankincense?
Frankincense is a fragrant plant resin that comes from the Boswelllia sacra tree found across Africa and the Arabian peninsula. It’s been used for centuries as a folk medicine, largely because of its anti-inflammatory properties. The oil of frankincense has been used for thousands of years to treat and prevent disease-causing inflammation, boost immunity, and prevent dangerous infections.
Cancer Cells that Don’t Respond to Chemotherapy are Destroy by Frankincense Oil
In the latest research, scientists have demonstrated the ability of frankincense to combat cancer cells in late-stage cancer. The compound known as AKBA (acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid) is credited with many of the known benefits of the resin, including its positive effects on cancer elimination, including breast, colon, and prostate cancers. And the evidence suggests that frankincense isn’t just a supplemental treatment to go along with chemotherapy and radiation; in some cases it may actually be preferential as a replacement.
After a year of studying the AKBA compound with ovarian cancer cell lines in vitro, 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.
The reason for this is that frankincense shows demonstrable effectiveness in a few areas where chemotherapy isn’t all that effective, particularly with regards to ovarian cancer.
