Frankincense fights cancer but also depression and anxiety!

There are several articles some on pubmed that indicate that Boswellia Carteri grown in southern Arabia and parts of eastern Africa has been known to cause cell apoptosis in cancer cells.  Fascinating! 

However burning frankincense can also help with depression and anxiety too.  This article from Science Daily says that certain ionic channels presumably that help transport substances through the cell wall are doing this with some particular substance that is helpful to brain cells and alleviates depression and anxiety.
