This plant is traditionally known as Indian frankincense and it has been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years to support healthy blood flow to the joints. According to some recent studies this herb supports the healthy mobility and it can also relieve pain in osteoarthritic knees by inhibiting the inflammatory enzyme 5-lipoxygenase.
In this study, 75 patients aged 40 to 80 with mild to moderate osteoarthritis took 250 mg a day of this plant’s extract for 90 days. At the end of the study, it was found that the group taking this herb experienced significant changes in pain and mobility. It is also shown that this enzyme also breaks down the balance of healthy cartilage, which causes the formation of new tissue.
Without inflammation of the joints and cartilage disintegration, the blood can flow to the joints and support its healthy and optimal function. Frankincense also improves the circulation and the blood flow through your veins that are damaged by inflammation, and with that it further helps your joints, which are threatened by arthritis.
It also has powerful and strong anti-inflammatory properties, which can help you in the treatment of cysts.
