Frankincense (Boswellia carteri)
Frankincense is prized for its essential oils which are believed to be medicinal and energetic. Oils are also used in the production of cosmetics and perfumes. Clinical aromatherapy uses it for skin diseases, respiratory and urinary tract infections, rheumatism, and even syphilis.
I find it thoroughly irritating that people in this world who hold power often times try to throw the public a smoke bomb in the form of lies. One such lie is that there's no scientific research into Kratom. One simple thought can debunk this bogus claim and that's the thought which ask the question, if it has not been studied then how do we know it contains Mitragynine and other phytochemicals? The answer is that obviously it's been studied and i'll provide citations at the end of this article to verify this.
Sadly and unfortunately moronic individuals out there will adopt this "no scientific research" mantra and go around mindlessly chanting it to others, while it spreads like some out of control super-virus. I want to kindly remind and ask everyone to simple research things before adopting hear say as truth or fiction. In this article I will discuss several studies that have been conducted and briefly mention a few of its fascinating pharmacological constituents.
Of course one of the most well known researchers who has taken an interest into Kratom is Claude Rifat. You may or may not be familiar with this guy from my other recent article on his accomplishments. Aside from Claude, studies have been conducted as far back as 1934, and that's just what i'm aware of. Raymond Hamet is another french botanist who has provided the world with some much respected academic knowledge on the subject. He found that an alkaloid called Mitranermine could lower the core temperature of guinea pigs. This indicates its use for lowering fevers.
Research conducted in 1957 indicates that people who consume kratom did not show any changes in their physical condition or character. It was noted that cocaine-like effects were induced, but only beneficial ones.  For anyone out there who claims otherwise, I challenge you to show me a citation from a source that hasn't had a history of releasing diabolical misinformation intended to infect the minds of the masses and spread like some out of control wild fire.
I can't believe the DEA was so bold as to say there's not been enough research on Kratom ( Mitragyna speciosa ) to know if it's safe or not. As early as the 1960's scientist had already isolated twenty two alkaloids from the plant, including mitragyinine. The crazy part is they figured out that mitragynine is comparable to codeine without the emesis or dysponea. They also figured out that it's chemically unique from 117 other recognized analgesics, while simultaneously being less toxic.
You would think that a caring health care system and government, including the DEA and FDA would be for something like this. Let me reiterate, scientific proof as early as the 1960's shows us that compared to one hundred and seventeen other recognized analgesics, and Kratom is less toxic than ALL OF THEM! If this doesn't make you think, then I'm not sure what will. It's obvious that the people running this world don't seem to be in favor of the general population, our freedom, our health, our medicine.
Together we can make a change in the world. Help me put an end to the moronic and mindless nonsense that people spew out of their mouths every single day. These lies spread like dandelion seeds in the wind. It's not cool and something as simple as sharing this article to someone who's against Kratom can make all the difference in the world. I've included citations, and other resources at the bottom of this page. Thank you all!
