Thorne Vet, Phytoprofen, 60 Capsules
PhytoprofenVET is an exclusive ThorneVET formula that combines several botanicals, including a synergistic blend of the Ayurvedic herbs – ginger, Boswellia, and curcumin (that is bound to phospholipids for enhanced absorption – CurcuVET®) – all of which help maintain a healthy balance of cytokines. Cytokines are cell-signaling molecules that aid cell-to-cell communication in immune responses and stimulate the movement of cells toward sites of inflammation, infection, and trauma; thus helping to minimize post-injury bruising and swelling and supporting post-surgery recovery. PhytoprofenVET can be used for cats, dogs, and horses.
Studies show supplementation with bromelain following a blunt injury to the musculoskeletal system resulted in reductions in swelling and tenderness.
The curcumin in PhytoprofenVET is CurcuVET, a curcumin/phospholipid phytosome that demonstrates superior bioavailability compared to ordinary curcumin compounds.
