this is frankincense, India. It turns out that is is a component of natural medicine and very helpful for kidney and joint function. Kidney is all about filtering harmful metals and access calcium before it lands on some precious tissues in the body. Once that starts, you will experience joint pain due to inflammation from the intrusion.
As well educated women and men, we can alter this by following a natural food diet~ no microwaves, or processed food and 85% fruit and veg.
I just realized that boswellic acid comes from frankincense! During ancient times this was medicine for any stomach issue but also purifies because resins contain volatile turpines and in the case with frankincense, boswellic acid.
Other resins we can consume as medicine are Myrrh which is excellent for any breathing ailment and dragon's blood for stomach support.
What about cedar, or larch? Yes! In Russia, they take larch resin to boost the immune system. They mix it with bilberries! So cool!
Boswellic acid, an extract from Boswellia serrata, has been studied from tumors to reducing pain from arthritis.
have a good day:)
