Nexrutine, An Anti-Inflammatory Supplement for Fighting Arthritis, Inflammation, and Prostate Cancer

Nexrutine is a herbal alternative to COX-2 inhibitors drugs such as aspirin and Celebrex. As a remedy for pain and soreness, it has a number of advantages over both broad COX-1/2 inhibitors like aspirin and selective COX-2 inhibitors like Celebrex. Nexrutine inhibits the inflammatory COX-2 connected with pain without inhibiting the protective COX-1, thereby having a lower risk of producing gastrointestinal and bleeding side effects versus aspirin and Celebrex. Other research shows that Nexrutine blocks the action not only COX-2, but also positively affects the inflammatory molecules TNF-a (Tumor Necrosis Factor alpha) and NF-kB (Nuclear Factor kappa B) that have been implicated along with COX-2 as participating in the development and spread of various cancers.
