  • Phytoprofen by Thorne Research delivers botanical extracts to help support the body’s natural inflammatory response. This improved supplement now contains the well-absorbed Meriva curcumin phytosome. Phytoprofen helps minimize post-operative bruising and swelling‚ and it helps reduce swelling and bruising that occur as a result of bodily injury. It also helps prevent the breakdown of connective tissue.

    As you’ve come to expect from Thorne Research supplements‚ Phytoprofen is produced without the use of any preservatives‚ magnesium stearate or other diluents and lubricants.

    What is Phytoprofen?

    Phytoprofen is made up of a combination of various botanicals‚ which includes a synergistic blend of the Ayurvedic herbs Picrorhiza‚ curcumin (derived from turmeric) and Boswellia. Each of these herbs helps to support the body’s normal inflammatory response.

    Meriva – a curcumin phytosome‚ has demonstrated extreme bioavailability when compared to standard curcumin. Studies have shown that it is absorbed by and taken up by the liver in significantly greater amounts. In fact‚ a 2007 study published in the journal‚ Cancer and Chemotherapy Pharmacology‚ indicated a significantly greater plasma concentration time curve (5 times higher for Meriva) than ordinary curcumin. Levels of curcumin in the liver were also higher when subjects supplemented with Meriva. Another study in humans has demonstrated even greater bioavailability of Meriva – again‚ showing increased absorption when compared to dosing with ordinary curcumin.

    Picrorhiza – This Ayurvedic herb has been used for centuries as treatment for yellowed skin and liver infections caused by a virus (such as acute viral hepatitis). Picrorhiza is also used to treat allergies‚ asthma‚ fever and certain skin conditions‚ such as eczema and vitiligo (a condition that results in white patches on the skin). Less common uses for the herb include the treatment of constipation‚ chronic diarrhea and indigestion. Sometimes picrorhiza is used in combination with other herbs to treat epilepsy‚ rheumatoid arthritis‚ infections‚ malaria and scorpion stings.

    Boswellia – Boswellia has also been used for ages in Ayurvedic medicine. More research should be done on the herb‚ but it has shown promise in some studies as treatment for asthma and other conditions that involve inflammation. Boswellia is also believed to be effective against depression‚ when used as incense. The bark of the Boswellia tree is commonly used in West Africa to treat gastrointestinal problems‚ rheumatism and high fevers.

    In addition to these botanicals‚ Thorne Research has added bromelain‚ which is a protein-digesting enzyme complex that comes from pineapple. Numerous studies have shown that bromelain can help reduce bruising after sustaining any type of bodily injury. Other studies have shown that supplementing with bromelain can reduce swelling and tenderness when it is taken after sustaining blunt injuries to the musculoskeletal system.

    All of the botanical extracts that are included in Phytoprofen are believed to have the ability to reduce post-operative bruising and swelling in addition to inhibiting swelling and bruising that can come from bodily injury.

    Back pain relief-- finally!

    I have lived with daily back pain for several years now due to inflammation and muscular stress. After chriopractic MRIs and a year of physical therapy my naturpath suggested I try this. After just two weeks I felt my tissues reacted by being more relaxed flexible and less inflamed. I even tried a different herbal mix of tumeric when this one ran out but was soon back to the stiff pain cycle as before. I got a new bottle of Phytoprofen and there is something about the mix of herbs and their effectiveness that works!! Within a few days I felt what "normal" could be again. Really. This is amazing life changing stuff and I dont normally comment on products.... life changing for those in constant muscular pain.

    Pros

    Cons

      need it in BIG bottles!

    Phytoprofen for my geriatric dog

    This was recommended for my dog by his natural vet (chiropractor/acupuncturist) as a natural anti-inflammatory. In conjunction with other herbs and supplements he was hugely improved in his mobility and comfort.

    A true miracle product

    I just cant believe how wonderfulPhytoprofen is. Was refered to it by my naturopathic doctor. Ive been suffering with arthritis for a long time have taken all types of precription as well as OTC meds and suppliments but this is the first product that has actually stopped my pain I slept wonderfully for the first time in a long time. It only took a couple of days and then I realized I had no knee pain it was a wonderful feeling. I cant say enough good things about Phytoprofen. Ive waited so long for Phytoprofen to come along and have told many friends and relatives about it. Thanks

    Pros

      Convenience easy to swallow and especially the results. Price is very reasonable.

    Cons

      Wish I could get a larger amount.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Has really helped my dog!

    I actually use this for my dog. It has helped him tremendously. He would have periodic flare ups in certain joints and would limp or be unable to walk. I found this and it greatly accelerated his recovery. Now I have him on it daily and I do believe it is primary in preventing his flare-ups. Thorne is a great company.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
