Why These Natural Ingredients?
This orange-colored spice, used for thousands of years in cooking and medicine, contains curcumin, one of the most potent known natural anti-inflammatory agents. The pharmacologically active component of turmeric, curcumin limits the action of lipoxygenase and cyclooxygenase reducing inflammation in the body. While some manufacturers use unstandardized turmeric with fluctuating levels of curcumin, Traumeric includes 850 mg of standardized turmeric, guaranteed to contain 95% curcumin.
The natural pineapple enzyme, Bromelain is widely accepted for its role as a proven natural aid in support of healthy muscles while providing the added benefit of increasing circulation. The presence of fibrin in the inflamed area blocks blood and lymph vessels which results in swelling. Bromelainís anti-inflammatory activity increases the breakdown of the fibrin around the inflamed area. Bromelain also blocks the production of kininsó compounds produced during inflammation which increase swelling and cause pain. Over 400 scientific papers on bromelainís therapeutic applications have appeared in medical literature since 1957, including a 1960 study in which 78% of boxers receiving bromelain showed all signs of bruising completely cleared within 4 days compared with 13% in a control group.
