Phytoprofen is a novel combination of botanicals, including a synergistic blend of the Ayurvedic herbs – Picrorhiza, Boswellia, and curcumin (bound to phosphatidylcholine for enhanced absorption – CurcuVET) – all of which support the animals normal inflammatory response. 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 recent in vivo study examined Boswellia extract for its effect on glycosaminoglycan (GAG) metabolism. GAGs form an important component of an animals 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. A 2007 study published in the journal, Cancer Chemo- therapy and Pharmacology, demonstrated the superior bioavailability of curcumin phytosome (as Meriva, the CurcuVET equivalent for humans) compared to ordinary curcumin. Liver levels of curcumin were also higher with this supplementation. In a more recent (soon to be published) randomized, single-blind, crossover study in nine humans, total curcuminoid bioavail- ability as evaluated by the plasma area under the curve (AUC) was about 29-fold higher for Meriva than for the conventional turmeric extract.
