Bromelain is a complex mixture of proteases extracted from the fruit or stem of the pineapple plant. Although the complete molecular mechanism of action of bromelain has not been completely identified, bromelain gained universal acceptability as a phytotherapeutic agent due to its history of safe use and lack of side effects. Bromelain is widely administered for its well-recognized properties, such as its anti-inflammatory, antithrombotic and fibrinolytic effects, anticancer activity, and immunomodulatory effects, in addition to being a wound healing and circulatory improvement agent.
The potential therapeutic value of bromelain is due to its biochemical and pharmacological properties, and the main ingredient in crude bromelain is a proteolytic enzyme termed glycoprotein.
Bromelain is absorbed into the human intestines and remains biologically active with a half-life of 6–9 hours, meaning that it continues to work in the system for quite a long time after taking it. The highest concentration of bromelain was identified in the blood one hour after administration. Bromelain increases bioavailability and reduces the side effects that are associated with various antibiotics.
- Improve digestion
- Decongest sinus cavities
- Enhances antimicrobial activity
- Reduce inflammation
- Promotes gut healing
- Aid with allergies
Bromelain, a proteolytic digestive enzyme that comes from Pineapples.
1-2 capsules 2-3x daily
Can I replace my digestive enzyme with Bromelain?
Bromelain would work best as a supplement to enhance your digestive supplements. It is a proteolytic enzyme and therefore will help with digesting proteins but doesn’t directly work with carbohydrates or fats.
What is the best dosage for allergies?
Dr. Nuzum usually takes 1-2 capsules before each meal.
Can this help with inflammation?
Yes, Dr. Nuzum usually takes 1-4 capsules before each meal depending on the level of inflammation.
Can you tell me more about this crude bromelain?
Crude bromelain is a proteolytic enzyme termed glycoprotein. which is in addition to insoluble materials, such as minerals, colored pigments, protease inhibitors, organic acids, and organic solvents. At this point, eight proteolytically active components have been isolated from bromelain.
Has there been research on Bromelain?
Studies show that Bromelain acts as an:
Immunomodulator meaning that it enables the Immune system to adjust to stressors
Anti-edematous meaning that it reduces swelling
Anti-thrombotic meaning that it helps the body deal with clotting
Anti-inflammatory meaning that it reduces inflammation
Antimicrobial meaning that it kills the “bad bugs” in the system
Can I take this with fulvic acid and humic acid formulas?
Bromelain exerts its activity over a pH range of 4.5 to 9.5, making it very compatible with humic and fulvic acids.
