Ortho Molecular Products Traumeric is a synergistic formula of natural ingredients for supporting a balanced immune response. Traumeric is formulated specifically to support healthy inflammatory balance and musculoskeletal health. Traumeric includes key ingredient turmeric, standardized to include 95% of curcumin. Traumeric also includes the pineapple enzyme bromelain, as well as flavonoids quercetin and rutin for full-spectrum, high-intensity support to maintain a balanced cycle of inflammation.
- Supports a healthy inflammatory response
- Improves musculoskeletal health
- Boosts joint health, movement and physical function
- Enhances workout recovery time
Inflammation is a natural part of the body’s immune response, a cascade triggered to protect the body and maintain normal tissue repair. This physiological response is part of the innate immune or non-specific immune system, a first line of defense comprising the cells and mechanisms that defend against unwanted organisms in a non-specific manner. The inflammatory cascade is mediated by eicosanoids, which have been shown to balance inflammation and immunemodulating cytokines. Traumeric provides a blend of nutrients which support a healthy inflammatory cycle by balancing eicosanoid and cytokine metabolism and inhibiting the activities and synthesis of a wide variety of compounds implicated in pain and inflammation.
Turmeric is a bright orange-colored spice that has been in use for thousands of years in cooking and medicine. Through its antioxidant mechanisms, the active ingredient in turmeric, curcumin, supports gastrointestinal (GI) health, provides neuroprotective activity, and helps to maintain a healthy cardiovascular system. Curcumin has been shown to play a crucial role in maintaining proper inflammatory balance in a variety of bodily systems due to its strong NFkB-modulating properties. Studies have shown curcumin supports the maintenance of balanced inflammation in the GI tract, promoting GI mucosal health and helping to reduce stomach lining discomfort. Curcumin has been found to provide antioxidant protection to the cardiovascular system, and to help modulate low mood and fatigue by supporting a normal immune response, reducing oxidative stress and intestinal hyper-permeability.
Bromelain is a proteolytic (protein-digesting) enzyme derived from the stem of the pineapple plant. Bromelain has been shown to support musculoskeletal health and healthy inflammatory balance by working on the kinin pathways and inhibiting arachidonic acid formation via phospholipase A. Bromelain is often used to support joint health, specifically for athletes, and age-related musculoskeletal challenges. Research has demonstrated bromelain’s ability to promote a comfortable post-operative recovery. Additional benefits of bromelain include supporting sinus health, as well as the health of the GI system.
A flavonoid found in a variety of botanicals, vegetables and fruits, quercetin is a potent antioxidant which inhibits inducible ICAM-1 expression, an important pathway for maintaining normal levels of inflammation. Quercetin has also been shown to support barrier function in the intestines, and to promote the balanced release of inflammatory mediators from mast cell. Quercetin has been shown to support inflammatory balance by directly inhibiting tyrosine kinase and nitric oxide synthase, and modulating the activity of NFkB, similar to turmeric. By acting as a potent antioxidant, quercetin can inhibit hyaluronidase, an enzyme which catalyzes the break down of connective tissue in the body.
Rutin is a flavonoid that has been shown to help support a normal inflammatory process. Rutin helps maintain levels of the major antioxidant in the body, glutathione. Rutin also works in synergy with other flavonoids, such as quercetin, to support connective tissue health.
The Ortho Difference
Quality Beyond What's Expected
Following are just some of the steps Ortho Molecular Products takes to ensure the quality of their formulas:
- Ortho Molecular follow rigid SOPs (standard operating procedures) and MOPs (methods of procedure) throughout every stage of production, leaving nothing to chance.
- They test all incoming raw materials in their state-of-the-art, in-house laboratory for identity (Is the material what it says it is?), purity (Does it contain any contaminants?), and composition (Does it match expected specifications?).
- Ortho Molecular mix all of their raw materials in dedicated blending rooms using a custom-made 5,000-liter mixer following strict protocols to ensure product consistency.
- They manufacture every batch of product in dedicated tabletting and encapsulating rooms, which are thoroughly cleaned and dried after each batch is made to protect against cross-contamination. It can take up to eight hours just to clean one room!
- Ortho Molecular perform thorough post-cleaning inspections to ensure the highest state of sanitation has been achieved.
- They test all finished products for identity (Does the formula contain the correct ingredients?), strength (Are the ingredients present in the potencies claimed?), and purity (Does the formula contain any contaminants?).
- Ortho Molecular subject every new formula to stability testing, which involves assaying ingredients to detect any degradation at 6-month intervals, thus ensuring the formula meets label claim at expiration.
Manufacturing To A Higher Standard
These days, most dietary supplement companies are really sales and marketing firms. While they may formulate their own products, it is standard to outsource the manufacturing, laboratory testing, bottling, and labeling to a big contract manufacturer. The upside to this practice is that it's convenient. The downside is that companies lose control to others that don't share the same passion for the quality of the products.
Ortho Molecular Products is unique in that they operate their own 100,000-square-foot, cGMP, FDA-audited manufacturing facility that is based in Stevens Point, Wisconsin and staffed by highly trained personnel who share a passion for efficacy. Because we control the entire production process - from formulation…to raw materials sourcing…to manufacturing…to laboratory testing of incoming materials and finished product…to bottling and labeling - they are free to be perfectionists.
Ortho Molecular Products manufacturing facility is strictly controlled by rigorous standards that meet cGMPs, and it routinely passes FDA and third-party audits. Extensive testing on every product we manufacture means you can trust the consistent purity, strength, identity, and composition of each and every Ortho Molecular Products formula.
It's rare for a supplement company to handle all phases of production. But when your standards are as high as theirs, you don't want to entrust it to anyone else.
