  • 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.

Helped me finally resolve tennis elbow tendinitis!

Posted by iHerb Customer on Dec 14, 2017 | Verified Purchase

I've had elbow tendinitis for over 4 months and when i read online how Bromelain is as effective as any NSAID on the market, and how it can actually help with tendinitis recovery, I bought this product because of its enteric coating which helps it pass through your stomach for better absorbtion in your intestines. I took it twice a day on an empty stomach. Normal dose is once/day but from what i read online I took it twice. Within days the pain was greatly reduced and after several weeks I feel no pain at all. Google the benefits of Bromelain and you'll see it works, and especially if you take it on an empty stomach and its enteric coated. When i take it with Quercetin, It also helps with respiratory inflammation i sometimes get with colds. Quality fish oil helps inflammation as well. but for Tendinitis, my new go to solution will be primarily this product. Be careful, Bromelain taken as directed here will thin your blood some, as will fish oil, so if your on thinners consult with your doctor first.

Thanks for your feedback!

Life extension bromelain

Posted by iHerb Customer on May 03, 2017 | Verified Purchase

I should have read the label more carefully. The tablets contain maltodextrin, a notorious very harmful additive. I have had severe repercussions on my tinnitus after just 3 days of use. Beware!

Helps with digestion

Posted by iHerb Customer on Dec 18, 2016 | Verified Purchase

This product is for people older than 40 years old ( my oppinion). Over the age of 40, more or less, people have problem digesting food, especially proteins. Now this product could help.
