For Brain Tumor:
Resin from this tree has been found to be effective in both animals and humans in lowering inflammation. Inflammation is the main cause of brain edema. Studies have shown that serrata resin is also very effective in helping treat brain tumors as it will help stimulate the cancer cells to undergo apoptosis.
The resin found in boswellia serrata has an important role in treating brain cancer. Boswellia is a natural therapy that’s mostly used for treating inflammation because it acts as an NF-KappaB inhibitor, anti-inflammatory and it also helps lower anxiety.
A 2006 paper has also reported that boswellia serrata was gaining importance in the treatment of edema surrounding tumors and other chronic inflammatory diseases. This study further suggested that boswellia may be considered as an alternative to corticosteroids in lowering cerebral peritumoral edema.
Furthermore, boswellia may be doubly useful for primary brain tumors. Studies that were published in the year 2000 and 2002 suggests that, in addition to helping lower cerebral swelling around the tumor, boswellia also kills glioblastoma cells in a dose-dependent manner.
Lastly, boswellia is useful in the treatment of secondary brain tumors. Back in 2007, researchers reported the use of boswellia to help treat a patient with breast cancer metastasis to the brain. Familiar with the German research on using boswellia in the treatment of primary brain tumors, the team tried it with these secondary brain tumors and reported benefit.
10 weeks later, along with radiation treatment, boswellia helped eliminate all of the signs of brain metastases on a patient’s CT scan.

Boswellia is commonly used for treating inflammation. Dosage is 500 to 1000mg a day.
- Vitamin D3, 5,000 iu per day
- Selenium, 200mcg per day
- Alpha-tocopherol-succinate (a typeof vitamin E) 400 IU per day
- 1,200 mg daily Melatonin, 10 to 20 mg at bed time every night
- Curcumin around 2,000 to 3,000mg per day
- Quercetion around 1,000mg per day
- Green tea extract 700mg to 2,000mg per day. EGCG or 10 cups of green tea without milk
- Trans-Resveratrol 400 to 500mg per day
- Sulforaphane 90mg per day
One should use both curcumin and boswellia as they act to lower inflammation, lowering the necessity for steroids, Remember that you really have to keep a close eye on swelling inside the brain.
