Finding High-Quality Frankincense
The anti-inflammatory properties of frankincense are only found in the gum resin, so it’s important to find a frankincense product that does NOT contain the leaves or the bark. The product should be standardized to contain 30% to 85% boswellic acids and it should also contain AKBBA (acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid), and PS (Polysal-polysaccharide) .
