The ancient Egyptians attributed mystical powers to Boswellia serrata, a medicinal tree used for thousands of years. They would apply its highly scented, bitter sap on open wounds for soothing relief and quick healing. Today, we now know that the sap contains a compound called AKBA. When taken as an oral supplement, AKBA inhibits the 5-lipooxygenase enzyme. This is the enzyme associated with millions of deaths from our country's top killers: heart disease, stroke, cancer and even Alzheimer's.
