Thorne Research PhytoprofenVET
Thorne Research PhytoprofenVET is a novel combination of botanicals, including a synergistic blend of the Ayurvedic herbs – ginger, Boswellia, and curcumin (bound to phosphatidylcholine for enhanced absorption – CurcuVET®) – all of which support the animal's healthy cytokine balance. To these botanicals is added bromelain – a protein-digesting enzyme complex from pineapple that studies have shown can reduce bruising after injury.
The botanical extracts in PhytoprofenVET are also helpful in minimizing post-operative / post-injury bruising and swelling. Supplementation with bromelain following blunt injuries to the musculoskeletal system resulted in reductions in swelling and tenderness.
A recentin vivostudy examined Boswellia extract for its effect on glycosaminoglycan (GAG) metabolism. GAGs form an important component of an animal's connective tissues. Boswellia significantly reduced the degradation of GAGs compared to controls.
CurcuVET, a curcumin/phosphatidylcholine phytosome, demonstrates superior bioavailability compared to ordinary curcumin, with significantly greater amounts absorbed and taken up by the liver.
