EVAN is a food supplement based on plant extracts of Boswellia Serrata and Pineapple. It can be useful as a natural remedy in the complementary treatment of all inflammatory states, both acute and chronic, in particular the dry extract of Boswellia helps to restore joint function and that of the digestive system.
The dry pineapple extract is useful in improving the digestive function, the drainage of body fluids and the functionality of the microcirculation.
Boswellia (Boswellia serrata Roxb), gummi dry extract titrated in boswellic acids
The Boswellia serrata is a medium-sized tree that usually does not exceed 4-6 meters in height, with a broad crown and a large branched trunk, with ash-colored bark, which flakes in thin flakes of paper appearance. Among the medicinal properties of Boswellia serrata are those known for their anti-inflammatory activity, in particular on pathologies concerning in particular the osteoarticular apparatus, thanks to the presence of boswellic acids.
The latter are considered the main active constituents of Boswellia and the predominant chemical form is represented by the beta form. The most active compound of the terpene mixture is 11-keto-beta-boswellic acid, also known as AKBA. The currently available extracts are titrated in ac.boswellics with percentages between 35 and 65%, and the most active are those with the highest titration in AKBA.
11-keto-beta-boswellic acid acts by selectively inhibiting an enzyme, lipoxygenase, thereby preventing the synthesis of leukotrienes, ie the chemical mediators that induce both acute and chronic inflammation in various inflammatory pathologies.
Pineapple (Ananas comosus, (L.) Merr, dry extract stipites
The genus Ananas belongs to the Bromeliad family, originating in South America; includes eight species of evergreen plants with stiff, ribbon-like leaves and often with spiny margins. Among its constituents stands out Bromelain, a molecule with various actions on an organic level.
Based on the mechanism of action, the activities of bromelain can be summarized as follows:
- Anti-inflammatory and anti-edema activity (inhibition of thromboxane synthetase)
- Proteolytic and fibrinolytic activity
- Platelet antiaggregating activity (thromboxane decrease, prostacyclin increase).
The prevailing action is anti-edema.
