Inflammation is the bodys 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.
There are many mechanisms in the body involved in the inflammatory response. Preliminary evidence suggests Lyprinol Double helps to reduce inflammation by inhibiting the action of enzymes involved in the inflammatory pathway called the LOX pathway. By inhibiting these enzymes Lyprinol Double can reduce both inflammation and pain.
Lyprinol Double 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 Double.
