The oil of frankincense has been used for thousands of years to quell disease-causing inflammation,support heightened immunity4, and prevent dangerous infections. But many people remain unaware of the added cancer-fighting potential of this precious serum, which researchers from the University of Leicester in the UK (among others), have confirmed through rigorous scientific testing.

Also known as boswellia, frankincense claims as part of its vast nutrient profile a unique compound known as acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid, or AKBA for short. Scientific tests have determined that AKBA is a sworn enemy of cancer.2 With funding from the government of Oman, researchers from the University of Leicester were able to uncover how frankincense may be a safe and effective remedy for women who suffer from ovarian cancer – one of the leading causes of cancer in women.

Even in patients with late-stage ovarian cancer, which is exceedingly difficult to treat using conventional methods, the AKBA found in frankincense oil demonstrated clear efficacy. Here’s what Kamla Al-Salmani, lead author of the paper covering these findings and a PhD student at the University’s Cancer Studies and Molecular Medicine department, had to say: (continue on next page)
