Frankincense Pain Killer And Cancer Fighter

Frankincense Pain Killer And Cancer Fighter

Natural pain reliever.

When you hear someone say Frankincense you automatically think incense. When you hear someone say pain killer you immediately think of a prescription pain med. We all know the bad side effects prescription pain meds have. They might take your pain away but what other damage are they doing? Most people don’t know that other more natural alternatives are available. How about if something was effective for pain and actually good for your body at the same time? A few things like this actually exist. One of them is Frankincense.


What is Frankincense?

Frankincense goes by a couple different names. Wikipedia states: “Frankincense, also called olibanum, is an aromatic resin used in incense and perfumes, obtained from trees of the genus Boswellia in the family Burseraceae, particularly Boswellia sacra (syn: B. carteri, B. bhaw-dajiana), B. frereana, B. serrata (B. thurifera, Indian frankincense), and B. papyrifera.”  

Not to many people use the term oilbanum that I am aware of. But Boswellia on the other hand is used a lot. That is the term that is mostly used in studies and in the supplement world. So as long as you remember those two terms you are good to go.


Real Proof.

As always everyone seems to say everything is good for everything else. Right? You might be reading this article and think “here we go again. This sounds like someone making up stories about the next big thing” I totally understand and agree 100%. But that’s why we are different. We back up all our articles with Scientific proof. No theories pulled from the sky. No opinions. No half truths. No ulterior motives. Just real results. Information that you can use in real life. Information that can help.


Pain Study.

A double blind, randomized, placebo controlled study shows Boswellia reduces pain and improves physical functioning in osteoarthritis patients. The study used 5-loxin which is a novel Boswellia extract.  70 patients completed the 9o day study. Pain reduction was noticed in as early as 7 days after start of treatment. Study also noted it is safe for human consumption. A human patient study that tested Boswellia in real life on real patients. That’s enough proof for me.





Brain tumor Study.

Lets go a step further. Lets prove not only is frankincense effective for pain but also for inflammation. Another study used it during radiotherapy for brain tumors. It showed that cerebral edema was reduced by over 75% in 60% of the patients. The results were so good study stated” These findings may be based on an additional anti-tumor effect. ”  Not only did it work on inflammation but possible anti-cancer effect as well. Study also stated that it can potentially be steroid-sparing for patients receiving brain irradiation.


frankincense pain.



Real Results.

These two studies show important data on pain and inflammation. Most importantly these studies are human studies. Real people with real health issues that benefited from Frankincense. I myself have used it and can attest it really works for pain. This is not just another folk tale. Not one of your grandmothers remedies. This is the real deal. A healthy herb that really works for pain. A gift from nature with a scientific background.

Of course this isn’t the only Gift from nature. This powerhouse is just as effective.

    I’ve used Frankincense for pain and inflammation and it really works. It is good to know it helps with cancer as well.

      I personally have experience with 5-lox inhibitor with ApresFlex by Life Extension. Usually 1-2 capsules does the trick for pain. But depending on the severity of pain you might need more. Thank you for commenting.

      Hi Yola. I have to do lots of walking and heavy lifting at work during my shifts. I also had surgery for my arm when the muscles and tendons were torn from the bone and each other. I don’t use Frankincense every day but i use it a few times a month. I take 2 or more depending on the severity of pain. It works for me and I like the fact it doesn’t have bad side effects.

    ok so this over the counter supplement won’t be able to benefit cancer per the study dose of 4200 mg/day is high. 100 mg is most low and can only help with some pain but I don’t see a huge cancer benefit on it. What do you think?

    More searching this looks interesting. Maybe combine supplement with oil for cancer benefit.

    Boswellia sacra essential oil induces tumor cell-specific apoptosis and suppresses tumor aggressiveness in cultured human breast cancer cells.

      Karen, most likely the study used 4200 mg per day of regular boswellia extract and not an optimized form. The forms 5-loxin (30% AKBA) and aflapin are thought to be more concentrated than standard boswellia extracts. For example, 5-loxin contains 10 times more AKBA than regular boswellia extract.

      Also petri dish studies like the one you mentioned are not to be confused with human studies. The vast majority when tested on human subjects fail and disappoint usually because proper blood levels cannot be reached. You can use petri dish data to help support other research you find but it doesn’t really hold much weight by itself. And without a human study to show evidence of efficacy, you can have all the petri dish studies in the world and it still doesn’t mean anything when it comes to real life conditions.

      Forgot to mention that Aflapin also goes by the name Apresflex.
