Did you know that incense has many medicinal properties? The latest research shows that it can help in the treatment of ovarian cancer.
This herb has been used as anti-inflammatory agent in the treatment of asthma, various skin diseases and gastroenteritis centuries. Two years ago an investigation has been published in which has been shown to incense can help treat arthritis.
In addition, recent studies have shown that frankincense is useful in treating some forms of cancer, including breast, colon and prostate cancer, all thanks to the compounds they contain -. Acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid (of AKBA)
After a year of analysis of these materials, scientists from the “Lester” University in Britain have tested a variety of cells of ovarian cancer in late stage, some of whom were resistant to chemotherapy.
of AKBA effectively destroys cancer cells in the ovaries, and in particular, scientists were amazed by what they found -. cancer cells that were previously resistant to chemotherapy after administration of incense became sensitive to this type of therapy
Because of this, scientists believe that frankincense could be very useful for prevent drug resistance and would be able to help improve the survival rate of patients with ovarian cancer in late stage.
The good news is that the incense will not cause any side effects, the authors of this study believe it has the potential to give rise to a level of clinical research in the future to develop a adjunctive therapy for the treatment of ovarian cancer.
