Product Overview

Description
  • For Longer Life
  • Enteric Coated for Optimal Absorption
  • Dietary Supplement

Specially-Coated Bromelain is enteric coated to protect the bromelain from becoming active in the stomach and act as a digestive enzyme for food.

Specially-Coated Bromelain

Bromelain, a mixture of proteases extracted from the stem of the pineapple, has been used by Europeans for many years to inhibit inflammatory factors. Bromelain’s fluid-regulating properties may result from its ability to effectively suppress inflammatory cytokine production, inhibit neutrophil migration, and support removal of some cell surface inflammatory molecules. Research also shows that bromelain may help support healthy blood viscosity and blood platelet aggregation.

Bromelain has to be enteric coated so that it will not be activated in the stomach and used as a digestive enzyme. Enteric-coated bromelain tablets pass into the small intestine where they are absorbed into the bloodstream to provide systemic benefits.

Specially coated bromelain may significantly modulate inflammatory reactions in the joints. Research has demonstrated that enteric-coated bromelain formulations are at least as effective as other approaches in supporting joint comfort, function and health and are well tolerated. One study even found that bromelain is more effective than other methods for maintaining joint function at rest (41% for bromelain versus 23% for other methods).

Another study showed that specially coated bromelain yielded an overall improvement in general well-being, along with improvement in comfort and physical function.

Suggested Use

Read the entire label and follow the directions carefully prior to use.

Take one (1) enteric coated tablet 2 times daily on an empty stomach, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner.

Other Ingredients

Microcrystalline cellulose, maltodextrin, croscarmellose, sodium, stearic acid, silica, vegetable stearate, enteric coating (methacrylic acid copolymer dispersion NF, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, propylene gylcol).

Warnings

Store tightly closed in a cool, dry place.

Caution: If you are taking anti-coagulant or anti-platelet medications, or have a bleeding disorder, consult your healthcare provider before taking this product. Bromelain may increase the bioavailability of tetracycline antibiotics.

Bromelain

Posted by Reviewer1788788 on Jan 26, 2010

Taking it for pain. The coated works better for pain. The uncoated works for digestion. I had my gallbladder out and just used this and no pain meds.

Excellent

Posted by Reviewer1476682 on Jan 12, 2011

My husband never goes a day w/o taking Bromelain. He suffers from gout and it helps a great deal to reduce inflammation. He was able to cut way back on his gout meds.

Intriguing product

Posted by Reviewer2304492 on Oct 25, 2010

I started taking Bromelain for help with digestion, and it has certainly helped with that. As an added bonus, this version, with the special coating, also seems to work as an anti-inflammatory more generally, and has helped with sore knees that I suffer from when I do a lot of sport. Great product.
