Have you tried this “holy gift” for joint-paint and stiffness?
I’ve always loved going to church, even as a young boy.
Sitting in the pews, listening to the scripture and the music, really lifts my spirits.
There’s something else I love about being in church… the smell.
The sweet, slightly woody smell that comes from the candles and anointing oil used in many ceremonies.
One deep breath in and I instantly feel comfort and peace.
And the source of this soothing smell? Frankincense.
Yes, that frankincense. One of the gifts given by The Three Kings on the night of Jesus’ birth.
Also known as olibanum, frankincense is derived from the gum resin found in the bark of Boswellia trees.
And this “holy gift” has been proven to be much more than a sweet-smelling oil.
It actually carries many health benefits, as well.
In fact, Ayurvedic medicine has used the healing powers of frankincense for hundreds of years.
For one, frankincense has been shown to support gut health.
Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, frankincense has been shown to tame inflammation in the gut and improve GI symptoms like diarrhea.
It’s also been shown to support lung function and improve symptoms of shortness of breath and wheezing by preventing the production of leukotrienes.
These inflammatory compounds can cause your bronchial muscles to constrict and tighten.
Frankincense’s antibacterial properties make it an effective remedy for bad breath and other oral health issues caused by excess bacteria in the mouth.
But the benefit that has impressed me the most about frankincense is its ability to improve joint health.
With its powerful ability to inhibit the release of inflammation-causing leukotrienes, several studies have shown frankincense to be a potent pain reliever.
I’m such a fan of frankincense, in fact, that I made it a key ingredient in my joint-supporting formula Joint & Muscle Freedom™.
If you’ve been experiencing joint pain and stiffness, give it a try. I’m confident you won’t be disappointed.
