Bromelain is a proteolytic enzyme that can modify prostaglandins (Med Hypoth 1980;6:99-104) and augment the action of natural tissue proteases at the site of injuries (Hiroshima J Med Sci 1975;24:185-93). Promotion of normal circulation and optimization of tissue repair require the timely degradation of immunoproteins, fibrin and cell debris when needed (Phys Med Rehab 1987;1:523-36).
Administered orally on an empty stomach, bromelain is absorbed into the bloodstream in amounts effective for supporting a positive healing response (Am J Physiol 1997;273:G139-46; Jpn J Pharmacol 1972;22:519-34).
Bromelain is a natural inhibitor of platelet activity, which may be helpful in promoting optimal blood circulation (Acta Med Empirica 1978; 5:274-8; Angiology 1969;20:22-6).
The consensus of scientific opinion suggests that orally-administered bromelain, taken on an empty stomach, helps maintain a homeostatic immune response and supports normal reparative activities in a variety of body tissues (Altern Med Rev 1996;1:243-57; Hiroshima J Med Sci 1975;24:185-93).
Suggested use for adults: One tablet three times daily, or as directed.
BromeZyme 2400 contains twice the gdu’s per tablet as the BromeZyme formula.
One tablet provides:
Bromelain (2400 gdu/gm*) 500 mg
*gdu/gm -‘gelatin digestive units?per gram-, a standard rating index of enzyme potency, equivalent to approximately 3600 mcu/gm (milk clotting units/gram).
Suggested use for adults:
One tablet, three times daily, or as directed.
