Repair Plus™ provides a powerful combination of nutrients that help “eat up trash” in the blood and lymph—curcumin, quercetin, bromelain, non-GMO papain, and black pepper extract. It is optimized for potency and absorption, and is designed to assist recovery from daily wear and tear, clean the blood, improve joint health, support immune function, and strengthen cardiovascular health.*
- Bromelain, non-GMO Papain
- Black Pepper extract
Curcumin C3 Complex®
Curcumin is derived from the spice turmeric. Curcumin contains the biologically active components known as curcuminoids. Repair Plus contains a superior quality curcumin, Curcumin C3 Complex®, that provides very high concentration of 95% curcuminoids. This is a higher concentration than the majority of curcumin supplements.
Curcuminoids are excellent antioxidants. They are shown to help modulate NF-kappaB, the crucial gene signal determining how a cell naturally manages stress and inflammation. In animal experiments it was found that such modulation by curcuminoids was supportive of joint health and improved tissue health.*
Additionally, extensive research is ongoing worldwide relating to curcumin’s influence on immunity, kidney health, recovery from wear and tear, and cardiovascular health.*
Quercetin is one of the most biologically active bioflavonoids. Quercetin has a stabilizing affect on the immune system, helping various types of immune cells maintain their composure under stress. As with curcumin, quercetin is known to modulate the behavior of the gene signal NF-kappaB to manage stress and inflammation.*
Bromelain and Papain
Bromelain (from pineapples) and papain (from papaya) are known as proteolytic enzymes (or proteases). These enzymes break down protein into smaller pieces. When taken as a supplement some will assist digestion and the rest are absorbed into the body to assist with natural repair and house cleaning.*
Proteolytic enzymes from bromelain and papain assist in the natural recovery from exercise as well as the routine recovery of normal wear and tear. They help to remove debris from the circulatory system, promoting healthy circulation.*
A recent cell study showed that bromelain helps cells of the immune system (monocytes) produce various cytokines supportive of a healthy immune response. Bromelain is supportive of sinus health.*
Repair Plus™ contains the finest full strength bromelain available, not the cheap watered-down bromelain that is widely used. Consumers are often confused by the various systems of measuring enzyme potency (milligrams alone is not enough), enabling many manufacturers to use low potency bromelain on unsuspecting customers. Bromelain is commonly measured by gelatin dissolving units (GDU) or milk clotting units (MCU). One GDU is equivalent to about 1.5 MCU. Our full strength bromelain has a very high potency (2400 GDU/gram). Thus, 150 mg of our bromelain has the same potency as 450 mg of bromelain standardized for 1200 MCU (a commonly used strength).
Repair Plus contains Bioperine® piperine, a special black pepper extract, to enhance GI tract absorption of the curcumin. This improves bioavailability of curcumin for optimum health benefits.
