BROMELAIN is an enzyme from the pineapple plant which accelerates the breakdown of proteins. It is active in a wide pH range and can function in the acidic environment of the stomach. Bromelain may also assist the body in its response to physical stress.
Bromelain is a protein digesting enzyme naturally present in pineapple sap and stem. Bromelain is classified as a proteolytic enzyme because of its ability to digest proteins. Bromelain affects protein turnover in the body (including proteins found in joint tissue). This may account for Bromelain's anti-flammatory effect. Bromelain can enhance absorption of nutrients such as glucosamines, sulfur and bioflavonoids.

Bromelain helps to inhibit pro-inflammatory compounds, similar to non-al, anti-inflammatory drugs reducing swelling & pain without side effects. And unlike aspirin, bromelain doesn't inhibit the production of prostaglandins which can have undesirable side effects. One study of 700 patients - mostly firemen with injuries - the group taking the bromelain reported good or excellent results, healing in half the time as the non-bromelain group. Other trials with oral bromelain over a thirteen month period showed a good response in over 70% of the patients.
Bromelain is a mixture of sulfur-containing protein-digesting enzymes (proteases) from the stem of the pineapple plant. Bromelain has been shown to be effective in the reduction of inflammation and helpful in the reduction of swelling. Bromelain blocks the production of kinins which are produced during inflammation. It is recommended to be taken between or before meals and dosage is typically between 250 to 750 milligrams thrice daily. There are known allergic reactions which include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, netrorrhagia and menorrhagia.

About Source Naturals
Source Naturals was created in 1982 by C.E.O Ira Goldberg to support each individual’s potential to enjoy optimal health. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned – for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life – simply didn’t exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula®, now the industry’s #1 immune support product.
