Arabic Gum Resin
This is a new Resin to me and I am astounded at the therapeutic properties. Arabic Gum is also known Acacia senegal and is very very rich in soluble fiber. Arabic Gum is sourced from the sap of the Acacia Senegal tree growing mostly in the Sudan and throughout the Sahel.
Arabic Gum Resin can be burned on a charcoal tab on its own to help bless and remove negativity when space clearing. It can also be used as a binding agent for home made incense sticks or cones.
Arabic Gum has also been found to:
- Help to lower choelesterol
- Help stabilizes bllood sugar
- Be protecctive agains dibetes
- Assist in the treatment of digestive disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
"Gum Arabic (acacia Senegal) is a complex polysaccharide indigestible to both humans and animals. It has been considered as a safe dietary fiber by the United States, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) since the 1970s. Although its effects were extensively studied in animals, there is paucity of data regarding its quantified use in humans. This study was conducted to determine effects of regular Gum Arabic (GA) ingestion on body mass index and body fat percentage among healthy adult females."
"Gum Arabic consumption at a dose of 30 g/d for 3 months may play an effective role in preventing weight gain and modulating adipose tissue dysfunction in type 2 diabetic patients, although no effect has been shown in waist-to-hip ratio"
"GA ingestion causes significant reduction in BMI and body fat percentage among healthy adult females. The effect could be exploited in the treatment of obesity"
