Inflammation is the body’s reaction to physical, chemical or biological injury. Normally this process localises the problem and results in regeneration or repair of damaged tissue. Unfortunately this process is not always beneficial in some people, and in some circumstances can actually cause further damage and injury, such as in rheumatoid arthritis.
There are many mechanisms in the body involved in the inflammatory response. Lyprinol helps to reduce inflammation and swelling by directly inhibiting the action of the enzymes involved in the inflammatory pathway called the LOX pathway. By inhibiting this enzyme Lyprinol can reduce both inflammation and pain, and yet does not interfere with the more positive aspects of the normal inflammatory response.
Lyprinol has a more complex lipid structure compared to other marine oils. This includes the presence of a number of compounds known to be anti-inflammatory, such as omega-3 fatty acids. This complex mixture of lipids is regarded as being essential to explaining the potent action of Lyprinol.
