Nice! Bromolein is used in many EU countries under the brand name Ananase. They are enteric coated pills,Inflammation can cause pain and disease, here a review of some natural anti-inflammatories...http://energytimes.com/pages/features/0113/inflame.html
I take MSM (Methylsulphonylmethane) 1,000mg capsules almost every day, along with Turmeric, fish oil, etc.It's nice to see MSM acknowledged in the listing. I've been using an MSM cream for years for back aches and headaches and after 10 to 15 minutes it is very effective in lessening or getting rid of both maladies although it should be used carefully as it carries other substances into the body with it. (ie: soaps, lotions or other creams used on the skin.) I'm very familiar with many of the other items listed also. Good list.
Far, far better than bioperine would be to take proteolytic enzymes along with curcumin. Many herbs, especially turmeric, are inhibited in their action by proteins. This is why it is best to take healing herbs on an empty stomach. Taking proteolytic enzymes along with such herbs will certainly enhance bioavailability of them. Nattokinase is a great one to take for that purpose. Nattokinase enzyme also goes to the blood stream and helps to make the platelets more mobile and will actually cure thrombosis by dissolving blood clots. Serrapeptase is a strong protease too, but can't manage the stomach acid pH and has to be coated. Bromelain would be good.I want to add 2 things. If you are going to use Curcumin, make sure BioPerine is added to allow for higher absorption ...
The rhizome and root of turmeric has been used for centuries in the Indian medical practice of Ayurveda. Indian practitioners have used turmeric as a tonic for the stomach and liver and as purifier of the blood. Modern research has focused on turmeric's potential use as an anti-inflammatory. Scientists think the active components in turmeric, called curcuminoids, may inhibit inflammation in a manner similar to that of conventional drugs like ibuprofen, aspirin and more recently the new Cox-2 inhibitors. Reseachers add that turmeric may offer fewer side effects than these conventional counterparts.
Geranylgeranoic acid is an acyclic retinoid that is found naturally occuring in several traditional herbal medicines such as turmeric, basil, rosehip, and cinnamon. Like many retinoids, geranylgeranoic acid plays a role in bone formation.
Geranylgeranois acid (GGA) is known to be a cancer preventive retinoid since it has been shown to induce cell death in certain human cells. Naturally occurring GGA and its related compounds are found in several medicinal herbs, which include turmeric, basil, rosehip, cinnamon and others. A current study sought to determine whether oral administration of turmeric tablets could increase plasma concentrations of GGA. Researchers found that in the healthy volunteers, plasma GGA was detectable prior to turmeric ingestion and then increased at two hours after intake. Levels stayed elevated for four hours after oral turmeric ingestion in the study participants. These results suggest that GGA from the turmeric tablet was absorbed intact through the intestinal mucosa indicating an efficient bioavailability of this acid. In conclusion, the information appears to warrant future studies to research the cancer preventive roles of GGA in a number of spices.1
