A dietary supplement for reducing pain and swelling, especially of the nose and sinuses, gums, and other body parts after surgery or injury. It is also promoted for osteoarthritis, cancer, digestive problems, and muscle soreness.
Bromelain is an enzyme found in the stem of pineapples.
FUNCTION AND MECHANISM OF ACTION
Bromelain is obtained from the lower stems of the pineapple plant which contains cysteine proteases. They are
glycoproteins with one carbohydrate chain per protein molecule with an active site represented by the reactive
sulphhydryl group of cysteine. These proteolytic enzymes support healthy cytokine levels and regulatory
balance in the body. Research suggests that bromelain may promote muscle and joint comfort by providing
support for healthy platelet function at the higher dose of 3000 FIP units Bromelain has nonspecific proteolytic
activity factors and may provide support for a healthy microbial balance.‡
