Product Overview


  • Dietary Supplement

Phytoprofen is a combination of botanicals, including a synergistic blend of the Ayurvedic herbs – Picrorhiza, Boswellia, and curcumin (from turmeric) – all of which support the body's 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 Phytoprofen also can minimize 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 metabolism. Glycosaminoglycans form an important component of the body's connective tissues. Boswellia significantly reduced the degradation of glycosaminoglycans compared to controls.

Meriva, curcumin phytosome, demonstrates superior bioavailability compared to ordinary curcumin. Significantly greater amounts are absorbed and taken up by the liver. A 2007 study published in the journal, Cancer Chemotherapy and Pharmacology, demonstrated Meriva's superior bioavailability compared to ordinary curcumin. This animal study indicated a significantly greater plasma concentration time curve, with an area under the curve (AUC) five times higher for Meriva. Liver levels of curcumin were also higher with Meriva supplementation. A recent human study (not yet published) demonstrated even greater bioavailability. Meriva supplementation resulted in significantly better absorption than with ordinary curcumin dosing.

Great replacement for Ibuprofen

Posted by Reviewer1789015 on Apr 25, 2017 | Verified Purchase

I have chronic pain issues but needed to stop my high doses of Ibuprofen. This has been a great replacement.

This product has helped me to sleep better which I believe is due to reduced inflammation from Phytoprofen.

Great for pain

Posted by Rena61 on Mar 06, 2016 | Verified Purchase

I find turmeric alone works just as well at a better price. These did work well tho, hence the 5 stars.

Relieph phrom Phytoprofen

Posted by Reviewer1298897 on Sep 02, 2014 | Verified Purchase

Amazing formula!!! Take a few (e.g. 1, 3x per day) to prevent or manage inflammation, take the full dosage (2, 3x per day) to knock out the pain caused by inflammation. I like that I am able to regulate the amount I need unlike other formulas that may have a higher content of ingredients in one or two capsules than are actually needed. No gastro upset at all unlike other products containing curcumin. I highly recommend this product.
