A Luxembourg laboratory just put on the market a pharmaceutical anti-inflammatory-based frankincense.
BOSWELLIA SERRATA is an Indian tree whose resin is traditionally used for its anti-inflammatory properties. The selected boswellia extract is a plug of beta-boswellic acids (the only active ones) and in particular AKBA (Acetyl-11-Keto-beta-Boswellic Acids). AKBA is 2 times more active than other beta-boswellic acids.
Recent Advances in Research and Industry
This inaugural conference aims to promote an exchange of knowledge and information about medicinal plants and frankincense to establish linkages between producers and consumers of natural products worldwide. It also offers an opportunity to introduce delegates to new developments and breakthroughs in many disciplines related to these areas. The conference further aims to contribute to in - creased production, underline the industrial and environmental value of Omani’s natural products, and highlight recent medical and scientific discoveries.
This discovery will allow us to reconstitute in a synthetic way this characteristic smell which dates from more than 6000 years, without having recourse to the natural resources and to be able to use it in perfumes.
