Arthritis Is Now In The Past Thanks To Frankincense
Frankincense (also known as olibanum) relieves the symptoms of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Scientists believe that people who do not respond well to other natural treatments often get better by consuming frankincense.
Both types of arthritis involve inflammation, and frankincense inhibits the chemical that triggers inflammation. (The active ingredients of this herb interfere with the work of enzymes that cause swelling and inflammation of the joints).
Studies show that frankincense significantly reduces pain, swelling, and morning stiffness. The researchers conclude that this herb works like conventional therapy like aspirin but has fewer side effects.
Dosage: Take 400 mg of frankincense three times a day. It would help if you consumed it daily for at least a week to feel relief. This herb is safe to use but can cause mild stomach upset in some people. No tests have been performed on pregnant or lactating women, so consult your doctor before using it.
