Bromelain 500 mg - 120 Vcaps
 
  • Natural Enzyme
  • 2400 GDU/g
  • Protein Digesting
  • Vegetarian Formula

NOW Bromelain 2400 GDU/g is one of the highest natural potencies of this proteolytic (protein-digesting) enzyme available.  While most enzymes are generally considered to be poorly absorbed, Bromelain is one of the most bioavailable of all enzymes and has been the subject of numerous studies worldwide.  Although Bromelain is derived from pineapples, supplementation is necessary to achieve optimum levels of this enzyme.

Because it is considered a proteolytic enzyme, Bromelain has the capability to fight off inflammation which may affect the tissues and organs in the body. It helps the body be cleansed from harmful toxins. It also helps prevent blood clotting and improve food and nutrient digestion. Bromelain is also effective in fighting off viral and bacterial activities in the human body.

The anti-inflammatory effect of Bromelain comes from its capability to prevent the formation of kinnins or that which is responsible for inflammation. Its effectiveness at preventing blood clotting is attributed to its ability of breaking down fibrins that often lead to blood clots. In the process of breaking down the sugar complex fibrins, Bromelain also helps eliminate tissue swelling.

Bromelain has been used to treat a wide range of health problems including:
  • ACL tears
  • Allergies
  • Arthritis and joint pain
  • Asthma
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Cancer
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  • Sinus infections
  • Sprained ankles
  • Tendonitis
