Bromelain Concentrated Supplement
Function: Promotes digestion and
provide minor pain relief
BROMELAIN is a proteolytic enzyme derived from the pineapple stem.
The broad substrate specificity of BROMELAIN enables the enzyme to
efficiently hydrolyze most soluble proteins. This enzyme exhibits
excellent performance on both animal and vegetable proteins.

probably important as an anti-inflammatory enzyme useful in
post traumatic responses and swelling and after surgery. It is also part
of an antiaging program as it reduces tissue irritation. This
proteolytic enzyme of pineapple also has several actions that make it
helpful in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease. It
reduces platelet aggregation, arterial plaqueing, and clot formation 400
- 1,000 mg. daily has been shown to reduce the symptoms of angina
pectoris. Bromelain's most popular use has been to reduce joint
inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis. The ranges for bromelain's
anti-inflammatory effects appear to be from 500 - 2,000 mg. daily,
usually taken in two doses. More research is needed to clearly evaluate
the potential medical uses of this enzyme as well as those secreted by
the pancreas itself.
Bromelain is an
anti-inflammatory agent and for this reason is helpful in
healing minor injuries, particularly sprains and strains, muscle
injuries, and the pain, swelling, and tenderness that accompany sports
measured in MCUs (milk clotting units) or GDUs (gelatin
dissolving units). One GDU equals 1.5 MCU. Strong products contain at
least 2,000 MCU (1,333 GDU) per gram (1,000 mg). A supplement containing
500 mg labeled "2,000 MCU per gram" would have 1,000 MCU of activity,
because 500 mg is half a gram.
Also as a result of its anti-inflammatory effect, bromelain has
been found to dramatically reduce postoperative swelling in controlled
human research. Double blind research has found
bromelain effective in reducing swelling, bruising,7
and pain for women having minor surgery after giving
Some of the
evidence supporting bromelain in the treatment of sinusitis
comes from double blind research.
In one double
blind study, twenty-eight individuals with a UTI received
antibiotics plus either bromelain or a placebo. Signs of infection
resolved in all of those who received bromelain, compared with only 46%
of those given placebo
Bromelain is a
natural blood thinner because it prevents excessive blood
platelet stickiness. This may explain, in part, the positive reports in
a few clinical trials of bromelain to decrease thrombophlebitis
(inflammation of veins) and pain from angina and
thrombophlebitis.Bromelain is a natural blood thinner because it
prevents excessive blood platelet stickiness.
evidence in both animals and people suggests that bromelain may
possess antitumor activity, though the true importance of this effect is
Isolated from the pineapple stem, bromelain is a proteolytic
enzyme that easily and efficiently hydrolyzes most soluble proteins such
as casein, gelatin, soya, fish, and other proteins, resulting in smaller
protein peptides and amino acids. Bromelain, unlike the other enzymes
mentioned thus far, has a very wide effective range of activity in both
acidic and alkaline conditions that allows this enzyme to remain active
in a variety of biological environments. Activity is measured in Gelatin
Digestion Units (GDU).
