Additional health benefits being studied:
- Pain relief (including chronic back pain, sciatic nerve pain, and old sports injuries): Researchers are constantly seeking powerful, safe, natural methods of pain relief, and Boswellia — a flowering tree used in Phenocane — shows promise. One study, designed to focus on asthma relief, showed Boswellia offered relief against a variety of inflammatory conditions1.
- Arthritis: Scientists continue to tackle the problem of arthritis, and numerous studies have involved Phenylalanine (an amino acid). In the lab, researchers often combine different amino acids (as well as variations on the same one) to see if the results may have analgesic benefits. In one study at Harvard, the findings showed that such an experiment may indeed lead to relief for individuals suffering from the effects of arthritis2.
