About Bromelain

Bromelain, a mixture of proteases extracted from the stem of the pineapple, has been used by Europeans to ease inflammation for many years. Bromelain’s fluid-regulating properties may result from its ability to effectively reduce inflammatory cytokine production, decrease neutrophil migration to sites of acute inflammation and support the specific removal of a number of cell surface inflammatory molecules. Research also showed that bromelain may help support healthy blood viscosity and blood platelet aggregation. A specially coated bromelain formulation has been well-studied for its ability to soothe minor injuries such as sprains and for speeding recovery time after surgery. In fact, Bromelain has been used in Germany since 1993 for easing sinus and nasal inflammation after surgery.

Bromelain has to be enteric coated so that it will not be activated in the stomach and used as a digestive enzyme. Enteric-coated bromelain tablets pass into the small intestine where they are absorbed into the bloodstream to provide systemic benefits.

Specially coated bromelain may significantly help inflammatory reactions in the joints. Results from research on subjects with discomfort in the knee area has demonstrated that enteric-coated bromelain formulations were at least as effective as other approaches in relieving joint tenderness and swelling and were better tolerated. One study even found that bromelain is more effective than other methods for maintaining joint function at rest (41% for bromelain versus 23% for other methods).

Another study showed that specially coated bromelain yielded an overall improvement in general well-being, along with improvement in stiffness and physical function.

Life Extension Bromelain Benefits:

Life Extension Bromelain Side Effects:

Bromelain is generally safe and free of side effects when taken in moderate amounts. However, one preliminary report indicates increased heart rate with the use of bromelain.

Good product.

Life Extension Bromelain works very well if taken twice a day, 1/2 - 1 hour before breakfast, and 1 at bedtime (an hour after dinner). It will take a month or 2 to show best results, but it does contribute to weight loss. I combined it with regular exercise and sensible eating and lost several pounds (and 2 dress sizes) over a few months. Be patient at first. NOTE: You need to take the Enterically Coated version of Bromelein though, as this works best. You can't get this version in Canada though, so it needs to be ordered in the U.S.



I took the Bromelain twice a day (without food) and noticed some fat loss and a slight decrease in cellulite after one month. Note: I also increased my cardio a bit and worked out regularly 3 - 4 times a week, drank lots of water and at less sweets and fats. I felt better (less wired) when I took the pills at about the same time each day - such as early in the morning (1/2 - 1 hr. before breakfast) and 2 hours after dinner before bed. I also noticed a slight decrease in stiffness in my joints which was an added benefit. I will continue taking it.
