Specially-Coated Bromelain
60 enteric coated tablets
Item Catalog Number: 01203

A specially-coated bromelain formulation has been well studied for its ability to soothe minor injuries such as sprains1 and for speeding recovery time after surgery. Approved in Germany since 1993 for treating sinus and nasal inflammation after surgery, bromelain is a concentrated extract derived from pineapple stems, which contains natural enzymes that help with joint inflammation and destruction.

Now, sufferers of joint inflammation can benefit from recent exciting evidence that specially coated bromelain-based formulations may significantly help inflammatory reactions in the joints.

A number of head-to-head trials have been conducted in people with knee inflammation. Results demonstrated that enteric-coated bromelain formulations were at least as effective as other approaches at relieving joint tenderness and swelling and were better tolerated. One study even found that bromelain is more effective than conventional methods for maintaining joint function at rest (41% for bromelain versus 23% for conventional methods).

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

The reason that bromelain is enteric-coated is that it would otherwise be used as a digestive enzyme if activated in the stomach. Enteric-coated bromelain tablets pass into the small intestine where they are absorbed into the bloodstream to provide systemic benefits.
