What is Turmeric Extract (50:1) and Bromelain Plus?

Our product has been obtained from a combination of plant extracts, which means that all its ingredients come from plant sources, including the capsule coating:
This product is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Why take Turmeric Extract (50:1) and Bromelain Plus?
Because we can control the mucus production specially during the coldest months when the temperature drops.
Moreover, did you know that...
A lot of athletes who do intense physical exercise outdoors during winter suffer upper respiratory tract diseases up to three times?
(Spence et al., 2007)
This seems to be due to a mild temporary immunosuppression after a long and intense workout. Together with the cold weather, this leads to the onset of infectious and non-infectious alterations of the upper respiratory tract.
Our product has been specially designed for these circumstances , as well as allergies and any other condition that may increase the mucosity and affect our quality of life.
Turmeric, an excellent immune system regulator
Turmeric root has been used as a natural remedy for centuries due to its effect on the well-being. Moreover, it has also proven the following functions:
- Helping to maintain the efficacy of the immune system.
- Keeping the body strong against allergies.
- Producing significant antioxidant properties.
- Supporting the lung health and the upper respiratory tract.
It is important to have a high concentration of turmeric root extract, in this case:
Our raw ingredient has a concentration that is 50 times higher than the original root. Moreover, it has a standardized content to 95%.
Curcumin is a type of curcuminoid, which is the active ingredient from turmeric responsible for its positive effects in the organism. It is extremely important to know its concentration in order to the determine the quality of the turmeric extract, the higher the better.
Our turmeric extract has a very high curcumin content which ensures the highest quality.
Black pepper extract, a sine qua non for turmeric
The polyphenols from turmeric that have positive effects on our organism are metabolized very quickly in our liver, so they do not have time to act.
That is why it is necessary to combine it with an agent that will inhibit the breakdown by enzymes. That is when black pepper comes into play:
The black pepper extract contains an alkaloid called piperine, which has the ability to increase the bioavailability of curcumin up to a 2000% in humans (Hatab et al., 2019).
It is an indispensable ingredient in a quality turmeric product.
Bromelain, a natural decongestant
Bromelain is an enzyme that is available in pineapples, both in the stem and fruit. That is why it is usually called “pineapple extract”.
Moreover, bromelain contains proteolytic enzymes which are in charge of breaking down the peptide bonds that make up proteins. Therefore, they can have interesting properties when it comes to improving the digestion.
However, its anti-inflammatory properties have been studied in depth, specially in the rhinosinusal mucosa. In the mid twentieth century, it was proven that:
'Bromelain helps to deal with the mucosa inflammation and it improves the ventilation in patients with chronic sinusitis. Therefore, the treatment can be improved by including bromelain.'
N-acetyl-L-Cysteine is the acetyl version of the amino acid cysteine. It has effective antioxidant properties and it is the precursor of glutathione (the most important endogenous antioxidant), apart from having a mucolytic effect:
Moreover, N-acetyl-L-Cysteine is capable of donating thiols, breaking the disulfur bonds that thicken the mucosity to the point that it becomes obstructive.
NAC increases the viscosity of the mucosa and supports its expectoration (Aldini et al., 2019).

Suitable for vegans
We work hard to make our high quality food supplements available for everyone, without limitations or restrictions due to allergens or diets.
And we have succeeded!
One of the most important steps was to replace our glazing agents for alternative veggie capsules.
An authentic innovation in the food supplement industry, since more than 90% of the companies from the market make their capsules with gelatin, which means that they stop being suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
Instead, we use an ingredient that comes from vegetable cellulose, which means that our product is 100% suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Many parts of plants have positive properties for the human beings and these effects will depend on the concentrations of active ingredients.
That is why it is always better to use highly concentrated extracts instead of the raw ingredients, without extraction. The bioactive content is definitely higher in the former.
To ensure the quality of an extract, it is indispensable to know its active content. To do so, they have to be standardized to a specific concentration.
In our plant extracts, you will find a guaranteed percentage of its biologically active compounds. This practice is actually not that common in Spain.
In HSN, we are experts in offering products with the highest quality standards from the market.
To take care of you!
