Natural Anti-Inflammatory Agents
Quercetin is a potent antioxidant and free radical fighter richly supplied in blueberries, red onions and certain other vegetables and fruits. It is also a natural antihistamine and anti-inflammatory agent.*
Bromelain, derived from the pineapple plant, is another potent natural anti-inflammatory.*
Bromelain is also rich in digestive enzymes and quercetin’s anti-inflammatory effects benefit inflamed intestines.*
Our Quercetin and Bromelain act synergistically to provide natural relief for arthritis, allergies, colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, and other inflammatory conditions.*
Regulates the Body’s Response to Environmental Challenges*
Maintains Tissue Comfort by Regulating Enzymes*
Helps Maintain Health of Blood Vessels by Modifying Oxidation of LDL Cholesterol*
Helps Maintain Normal Blood Viscosity*
Bromelain May Enhance Quercetin Absorption*
Quercetin, the most active of the flavonoids, is a powerful antioxidant, antihistamine and anti-inflammatory. Quercetin inhibits the activity of adhesion molecules, which enable inflammation producing white blood cells to stick to other cells in the body.*
Quercetin is even more effective as an anti-allergen when taken with bromelain, the anti-inflammatory enzyme from the stem of the pineapple plant. Quercetin helps with asthma, allergies, arthritis, cancer, emphysema, prostatitis and other diseases caused by inflammation.*
C-reactive protein (CRP) is a test that measures the concentration of a protein in serum that indicates acute inflammation. CRP a far more accurate predictor of heart attack risk than either cholesterol or homocysteine. Elevated levels of inflammation increase the risk of a heart attack by four and one-half times.*
An August 2006 Johns Hopkins study shows that a pill combining turmeric and quercetin reduces both the size and number of precancerous lesions in the human intestinal tract. The average number of polyps dropped 60.4 percent, and the average size dropped by 50.9 percent.
Bromelain (from pineapples) is an anti-inflammatory enzyme used to reduce or eliminate pain, aid digestion, accelerate healing, prevent strokes and reduce blood pressure.*
According to researchers at Duke University Medical Center, bromelain is a complex mixture of proteinases typically derived from pineapple stem. Beneficial therapeutic effects of bromelain have been suggested or proven in several human inflammatory diseases and animal models of inflammation, including arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease.
Proteolytic enzymes have analgesic effects besides the well-known anti-inflammatory and edema-reducing properties. These analgesic effects are based on the inhibition of inflammation and in addition to that on direct influences on the nociceptors.
In recent years a significant reduction of pain in various rheumatic diseases, concerning these aspects, was shown in several clinical studies. In the trial of patients suffering from painful osteoarthritis of the knee, there was a statistical equivalence of the pain-scores, comparing diclofenac and enzymes. The study of painful vertebral syndromes again resulted in equivalence of the treatment with NSAIDs compared to therapy with enzymes.
Bromelain is often used after sports injuries to relieve edema and inflammation, and after surgical and dental procedures to help with swelling. A study conducted by an orthopedic surgeon showed that giving bromelain to 59 of his patients resulted in a clear reduction in both swelling and discomfort.*
