In the spirit of the upcoming holidays, we'd like to talk about a little used but powerful herb. Boswellia Serrata-also known as Frankincense.
Were the gifts of the magi meant to save Jesus from muscle pain and to help with an awesome night's sleep? It’s possible, according to researchers at Cardiff University in Wales who have been studying the medical uses of frankincense.
Since the early days of Christianity, Biblical scholars and theologians have offered varying interpretations of the meaning and significance of the gold, frankincense and myrrh that the magi presented to Jesus, according to the Gospel of Matthew (2:11). These valuable items were standard gifts to honor a king or deity in the ancient world: gold as a precious metal, frankincense as perfume or incense, and myrrh as anointing oil. In fact, these same three items were apparently among the gifts, recorded in ancient inscriptions, that King Seleucus II Callinicus offered to the god Apollo at the temple in Miletus in 243 B.C.E. The Book of Isaiah, when describing Jerusalem’s glorious restoration, tells of nations and kings who will come and “bring gold and frankincense and shall proclaim the praise of the Lord” (Isaiah 60:6). Although Matthew’s gospel does not include the names or number of the magi, many believe that the number of the gifts is what led to the tradition of the Three Wise Men.
Clearly there is a long history of very wise people relying on this powerful little herb to help with healing. Sometimes it is best to go with what natural remedies has been used over the millennia.
If you’re like me, you've had those mornings where you wake up feeling like you got run over by a steamroller from yesterday's training. Achy muscles and joints are accompanied by groans of pain and discomfort.
While we all know exercise does a body good, it also has the tendency to beat us up pretty good from time to time…..with the majority of the abuse happening to our joints from high impact activities like running.
Your body is like a machine with many moving parts. Unfortunately, both break down from time to time. Rest days and nutrition aren't always enough. Promote proper recovery by adding in topicals and supplements that help reduce joint pain and soreness, improve mobility, and maintain cartilage health.

The unique and powerful stack of ingredients is custom-formulated for the grueling challenges of our athlete users and it includes a lesser known but super powerful herb to help you feel better: Boswellia serrata.
Boswellia Serrata (Indian frankincense) is a phytopharmaceutical herb that is extracted from the gum resin of the tree. Its active compound, boswellic acid possesses many anti-inflammatory effects that can be beneficial for joint health.
