Frankincense Overview

Frankincense Frankincense is a resin obtained from the Boswellia tree, which is native to the Arabian Peninsula and Africa. In traditional medicine, frankincense has been used for reducing inflammation and pain, as well as improving digestion and immune function. Frankincense essential oil is also used in aromatherapy for its calming and relaxing properties. It is important to note that both frankincense and Boswellia supplements refer to different forms of the same substance, which is derived from the resin of the Boswellia tree. Frankincense supplements refer to supplements that contain the resin of the Boswellia tree in its natural form, while Boswellia supplements contain an extract from the resin of the Boswellia tree, specifically boswellic acids. These supplements are often standardized to a specific amount of boswellic acids to ensure consistency in the product.

Prazosin Overview

  • Prazosin is used alone or in combination with other medications to treat high blood pressure. Prazosin is in a class of medications called alpha-blockers. It works by relaxing the blood vessels so that blood can flow more easily through the body.

  • High blood pressure is a common condition and when not treated, can cause damage to the brain, heart, blood vessels, kidneys, and other parts of the body. Damage to these organs may cause heart disease, a heart attack, heart failure, stroke, kidney failure, loss of vision, and other problems. In addition to taking medication, making lifestyle changes will also help to control your blood pressure. These changes include eating a diet that is low in fat and salt, maintaining a healthy weight, exercising at least 30 minutes most days, not smoking, and using alcohol in moderation.
