    Inflammation is widely considered the root cause of most disease. Frankincense is high in Sesquiterpenes which are able to cross the blood-brain barrier. Many studies have shown this to inhibit the production of pro-inflammatory mediators in the body.
    Another constituent of Frankincense is Monoterpenes which increases the level of enzymes involved in removing Carcinogenic toxins from the body. It also interferes with Cholesterol Synthesis, so it helps with the slowing and the reducing of potential tumor formation, therefor protecting cells.
