Phytoprofen can minimize post-operative or post-injury bruising and swelling, in addition to helping prevent connective tissue breakdown. It contains a blend of Ayurvedic herbs – ginger, Boswellia, and curcumin – which together support a healthy cytokine balance in the body. Phytoprofen also contains bromelain, a protein-digesting enzyme complex derived from pineapple that studies have shown will reduce bruising after injury. Supplementation with bromelain following a blunt injury to the musculoskeletal system can reduce swelling and tenderness. Phytoprofen can be used to promote healing after injury or surgery.
