Given that evidence has surfaced suggesting that aging may be a result of cellular damage, this implies that interventions to influence aging are possible....

Boswellia

Boswellia (Boswellia serrata), also known as frankincense, is native to the Indian continent, North Africa, and the Middle East, and is used widely as a traditional herb in Ayurvedic medicine for treating inflammatory disease.
