Anti-Inflammatory Overview

Mountain Peak's Anti-Inflammatory Formula is an ideal choice when it comes to fighting inflammation because it’s a powerful combination that contains several of the strongest natural anti-inflammatories known. 

Standard prescription and over-the-counter anti-inflammatories like ibuprofen will make your stomach bleed, prevent cartilage repair, and beat on your liver and kidneys. 

It’s a dirty secret yet so many people are still told to take drugs like ibuprofen for aches and pains.

Anti-Inflammatory Formula contains 9 different enzymes, flavonoids and botanical medicines that shut down the various inflammatory pathways in your body.

The enzymes serrapeptase and protease are proteolytic enzymes, meaning they neutralize the chemicals of inflammation at their point of generation. While inflammatory chemicals are important in the overall healing of tissue, they can also promote more damage to that tissue if left unchecked.

Bromelain is another proteolytic enzyme that stops a specific inflammatory white blood cell (neutrophils) in its tracks.  Anti-Inflammatory Formula contains 250mg of the highest potency of bromelain available – doses as low as 200mg have been shown to be comparable to the effects of ibuprofen.

Quercetin and rutin are flavonoids, which can be best described as a class of plant pigments.  These work to short-circuit the production of inflammatory molecules (leukotrienes and prostaglandins) and act as anti-histamines as well (histamine is a strong inflammatory chemical that promotes capillary ‘leaking’ and thus swelling in inflamed tissues.

Best Natural Anti-Inflammatory

Lastly, the herbs Boswellia (aka Indian Frankincense), Turmeric (extracted as the highly absorbable form of curcumin), Devil’s Claw and Ginger root make a formidable combination that fights inflammation in the body’s two main pro-inflammatory pathways cyclooxygenase and lipoxygenase.

Best uses for  Anti-Inflammatory Formula include:

  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Muscle soreness, aches and pains
  • As a recovery assist – take immediately after a hard effort
  • Use in any condition in place of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen, etc.

A typical dose for Anti-Inflammatory formula is 1-2 capsules three times daily.  You can use less (1-2 capsules once or twice daily) for ongoing inflammation control.  During times of heavy training, or if you have an injury, go with the heavier dose.  If you’re just doing some basic training in the off-season, or if you have a minor ache or pain, you can use the lower dose.

The key with this and other natural medicines is finding the dose that works best for you.  One of the great things about this is that you can experiment with different doses without risking injury to your body.  We’ve yet to hear of any side effects taking Anti-Inflammatory Formula at these doses.  As always, please be sure to read the ingredient list prior to taking it however, to make sure it doesn’t contain anything that you’ve reacted negatively to in the past.

Your body will thank you for taking Anti-Inflammatory Formula instead of the standard over-the-counter drugs.

Let us know how it works for you!

Hi Miri, anyone can use this formula, not just athletes. You’re definitely on the right track with fish oil and Meriva – adding in Anti-Inflammatory formula will give you a few more compounds to fight inflammation, systemically.

I see that you have a anti inflammatory formula for athletes but do you have a formula for reducing inflammation in the body ? I am not an athlete and I don’t get sore muscles but I take fish oil and Meriva/turmeric for inflammation. I would assume that is a different type of inflammation. I appreciate your feedback thanks .
