Now with TurmiPure Gold turmeric extract! The curcumin ingredient in Repair Plus has been upgraded to TurmiPure Gold. This is an advanced turmeric extract with superior bioavailabilty. TurmiPure Gold is 22 times more bioavailable than standardized turmeric extract with black pepper.
Repair Plus™ provides an outstanding combination of nutrients—TurmiPure turmeric extract with curcumin, bromelain, quercetin, and non-GMO papain.
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.*
TurmiPure Gold® Turmeric Extract
The curcumin ingredient in Repair Plus has been upgraded to TurmiPure Gold turmeric extract. TurmiPure Gold is the world’s most bioavailable and first bioequivalent turmeric at a low dose of 300mg. The black pepper extract has been removed because TurmiPure Gold is not dependent on black pepper for absorption. In fact, 300mg of TurmiPure Gold delivers more curcuminoids in the blood than 1,500mg of turmeric 95% (with or without addition of 1% black pepper extract).
TurmiPure Gold’s superior absorbability into the blood has been extensively tested and recently compared in a randomized, cross-over trial with healthy adults. Testing showed that 300 mg of TurmiPure Gold® delivered the same amount of curcuminoids into the bloodstream as did 1,926 mg of 95 percent standardized turmeric with or without the addition of black pepper extract. (Black pepper/ BioPerine is used to enhance absorption.)
Comparison results also showed that one 300 mg serving of TurmiPure Gold® has 24 times higher bioavailability than 95 percent standardized curcumin extract and 22 times more than 95 percent standardized curcumin extract with 1 percent black pepper extract. It also surpassed phospholipid curcumin absorption with 6 times better bioavailability.
The biologically active compounds in TurmiPure Gold are known as curcuminoids. 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 turmeric’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.*
An interesting question arises: how do proteolytic enzymes know to digest food or clean up body debris, but not “digest” normal structures of the body? The answer involves the structure of the enzyme itself. Many proteolytic enzymes have sulfur in their structure, and based on evolutionary experience are able to tell the difference between healthy structure and tattered structure needing repair or other waste products needing removal. By contrast, many infections produce acid-based proteolytic enzymes that directly damage healthy structures (part of the wear and tear of fighting a bug).
A 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).
