What Can Myrrh Gum Do For You?
You may have read about it in the Bible as one of the gifts given to Jesus by the Magi, but in addition to being used in incense and in embalming myrrh gum offers a number of benefits to your health. It is a powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial substance that can be used both to prevent and to cure a number of health or medical conditions.
For example, it can be used for gum infections, skin conditions and to help speed up wound healing. In the latter case it helps to prevent infection of the wound and to moderate the inflammation associated with the reaction of your immune system to irritation and invasion of pathogens such as fungi, bacteria and viruses.
It is also useful to diabetics in that it improves glucose tolerance, and by interfering with the chemicals in the brain that give the sensation of pain, myrrh gum can reduce the pain associated with a number of conditions. Thus, not only is the pain of arthritis reduced, but the anti-inflammatory properties of the gum help to reduce the swelling.
If you have some cuts or other wounds that are taking some time to heal, have problems with your gums or are suffering any of a range of skin complaints, then try myrrh gum - many others do and find that it works.
