This potent anti-inflammatory product features a combination of herbs, nutrients and proteolytic enzymes for influencing the inflammatory response, supporting the natural clearance of tissue build up proteins like kinin and fibrin (that drive tissue build up and pain), and for supporting healthy lymphatic drainage. By controlling the inflammatory processes in multiple metabolic pathways, Inflammazye can be helpful in many situations, including osteo and rheumatoid arthritis, atherosclerosis, sports injuries, and post-operative healing. This formula is a go-to for platelet aggregation and elevated LP(a) and has a mild anti-thrombotic effect which may support cardiovascular health without the harmful GI effect of aspirin. The ingredients in this product also provide detox support and protection against oxidative stress.

Inflammazyme ingredients target many metabolic pathways of the inflammatory response (1,2) see references noted in the Research tab!
1. Significant inhibition of the COX-2 (cyclooxygenase) enzyme, which produces prostaglandins PG-E2 (inflammatory) and thromboxanes TX-A2 (vasoconstrictive and increases platelet aggregation). The COX-2 inhibition is achieved by turmeric, ginger, quercetin and resveratrol. The PG-E2 is also known to increase cell proliferation, which may be beneficial for normal tissue growth and wound healing but not for cancer promotion. That is why inflammation is associated with the risk of cancer development in many studies and underscores the importance of keeping inflammation under control.
2. Additional inhibition of the expression of the COX-2 enzyme byantioxidant effects on NF-Kappa B, which is one of the regulators of the
cytokine (inflammatory) response. This is achieved by the antioxidant action of turmeric, quercetin, rutin, rosemary and resveratrol. This is a
preferred mechanism of inhibition because it acts upstream in the metabolic pathway by reducing oxidative stress, which can be one of the
causes of inflammation. Thus, this is a preventive action as opposed to blocking inflammation after it has started.
3. Inflammazyme ingredients have a minimal inhibition of the COX-1 enzyme which has a maintenance function for a number of tissues in the body, including intestinal cells. This is unlike aspirin or NSAIDs which are very irritating to the GI tract.
4. Inflammazyme has a mild anti-thrombotic (blood thinning) effect which could result in increased cardiovascular risk
protection, similar to that of aspirin yet without aspirin's severe GI irritation.
This blood thinning effect of Inflammazyme is due to the following:
• mild COX-1 inhibition by ginger
• mild anti-coagulating activity of turmeric and quercetin
• fibrinolytic effect of the proteolytic enzymes, especially the serratiopeptidase
Cancer metastasis is known to be mediated by increased platelet aggregation, so any agent that decreases it may reduce
the risk of cancer proliferation. (7)
5. Inflammazyme may be superior to selective COX-2 inhibitors like Vioxx and Celebrex due to the fact that, by design, they are lacking any COX-1 inhibiting activity, which affects platelet aggregation. That is why drugs like Vioxx and Celebrex were shown in studies to increase the risk of thrombosis and overall CVD risk. This is especially important for patients with low omega-3 fatty acid stores.
6. Inflammazyme may be superior to selective COX-2 inhibiting drugs due to the fact that in addition to inhibiting COX-2, some Inflammazyme ingredients also inhibit the LOX (lipoxygenase) enzyme. This enzyme is normally producing leukotrienes (LT-4 series) which cause bronchoconstriction and vasoconstriction. The LOX inhibition is achieved through the action of boswellia, turmeric, ginger and quercetin.
How to Use
Unlike digestive enzymes, such as my Digestaid, which are taken prior to meals to support the breakdown of foods and enhance digestive process, the proteolytic enzymes in Inflammazyme perform best on an empty stomach.
Try to separate the Inflammazyme capsules about 1-2 hours away from meals and snacks this will help break down damaged tissue, and thus, work to promote a healthy response to inflammation in the body and food will slow down this process. These are best at rise, mid-day and at bed.
Dosing for children should be discussed with your healthcare team based on g/kg of active ingredients.
Note: some individuals experience moderate heartburn from the botanical compounds if taken too close to bed. It is best to take the evening dosage an hour prior to bed.
Note: Although likely not safe for longterm use with breastfeeding the cost to benefit post-delivery both vaginal and c-section would likely be beneficial to aid in healthy tissue repair and prevention of blood clot formation.
