We all know that frankincense is utilized as a medicine for hundreds of years and people in India use it to treat all sorts of health problems. Indian medical practitioners use frankincense to treat hormonal problems and to destroy flies and mosquitoes. Until recently no scientific study was conducted on this oil, but now there are lots of trials and results are beginning to show.
A University in California performed a study that has shown that frankincense is advantageous in the treatment of osteoarthritis pain. The condition of patients that suffer from this illness improved significantly in seven days after beginning the treatment with frankincense extract. None of the subjects shown any bad reactions to the treatment method and only 1% of the people tested did not responded to the treatment. This means that 99% of the test subjects manifested an improved health condition after taking frankincense as a treatment.
Another analysis was focused on a specific sort of frankincense used in Somalia. The locals there use it to treat arthritis for a long time and a University has carried out some research there. The scientists centered their efforts to uncover the way frankincense reduces the arthritic inflammation and what are the exact components that reduce pain.
The scientists that studies frankincense in Somalia were able to locate the exact active substance that decreases pain. In some years we might see an extract designed by pharmaceutical companies based on frankincense. The brand new extract will not have any negative effects and it will be as strong as all the other painkillers in the marketplace.
The research conducted by famous universities has proven a new side of frankincense oil utilization. This means that the natural extract can be more than aromatherapy oil. This extract could change the lives of those that suffer from arthritis or gout. Additionally, it can be used to lower the levels of pain!
