    Supports cardiovascular and joint wellness

    Bromelain is an enzyme derived from pineapple stem and fruit that has proteolytic (protein-digesting) properties. The bromelain found in Best 3000 GDU Bromelain is the most potent form of this enzyme found on the market. The 3000 GDU refers to the standardization of enzymatic potency and reflects the quality of the raw material used in the product. Bromelain is renowned for its digestion-enhancing characteristics and also has beneficial systemic effects within the body. Bromelain may also help support cardiovascular and joint health.

    Benefits:

    Best 3000 GDU Bromelain is a proteolytic enzyme that supports healthy immune function.

    Bromelain has the ability to activate various immune cells and their cytokines. Cytokines are signaling molecules secreted by immune cells that act as messengers to alert other immune cells. In vitro trials have shown that bromelain can alter immune cell secretion of cytokines in a way that would be favorable for maintaining balance in the human immune system. There is also in vitro evidence that bromelain can alter T cell signal transduction‚ facilitating immune cell communication‚ which would also contribute to a balanced immune response in the human body. Bromelain’s enzymatic activity is key in these reactions‚ and Best 3000 GDU Bromelain has the highest potency per capsule.

    Best 3000 GDU Bromelain supports joint health.*

    Several clinical studies have also looked at the effects of bromelain on the musculoskeletal system. A series of 29 case studies using 60–160 mg of bromelain per day for 3 weeks to 3 months showed beneficial effects in overall joint health.5

    A 2002 open label human trial confirmed the ability of bromelain to support healthy joint function. One hundred twenty-six participants were randomly assigned to receive either 200 or 400 mg of bromelain daily for 30 days. Individuals reported their results via questionnaires that included indicators of joint health as well as psychological well-being. Both groups reported significant benefits. Overall‚ bromelain was found to promote joint health‚ while additionally showing dose-dependent improvements in feelings of well-being and general health.

    Best 3000 GDU Bromelain supports healthy respiratory function.*

    In several randomized‚ controlled clinical trials‚ supplementation with bromelain was found to be supportive of respiratory health compared to placebo. In one human study‚ 16 men and 32 women were given either placebo or two bromelain pills‚ taken four times daily for six days. The bromelain group benefited with an enhanced breathing ability and a higher occurrence of reporting a “good” rating for the overall effect of the supplement. In a similar double-blind clinical trial of subjects that investigated the respiratory implications of bromelain usage‚ the 29 subjects given bromelain four times daily had higher ratings of “excellent” improvement compared to placebo. An animal study suggests that the mechanism of action for the enhanced respiratory function could be through bromelain’s influence over immune response.

    Best 3000 GDU Bromelain supports healthy cardiovascular function.

    Evidence suggests that bromelain can modulate adhesion molecules on blood cells and the cells lining the walls of blood vessels‚ thereby promoting healthy circulation. Bromelain does so through its proteolytic activity—cleaving proteins from the surface of cells. Several important human proteins affected include fibrin‚ albumin‚ casein‚ angiotensin II and bradykinin. Fibrin and albumin are blood proteins that each provide contributions to the maintenance of a healthy blood flow‚ while angiotensin II and bradykinin play a role in the pliability of blood vessels. All of these compounds are highly involved in complex systems that are implicated in a healthy flow of blood and optimal cardiovascular health.

    While bromelain is most noted for its enzyme activity‚ not all of the physiological activity of bromelain can be attributed to its protease activity. It appears that the other compounds within bromelain act synergistically to provide its wealth of benefits. Given its wide range of activity‚ bromelain can be valued as a factor in healthy maintenance of multiple systems within the human body.

    GREAT FOR DIGESTION AND JOINTS

    Many years ago a friend who owned a Vitamin Shop recommended Best 3000 GDU Bromelain to me for joint discomfort. She also said it is good for digestion. I added this to my vitamin regimen and noticed a difference in about 2 weeks. I have been taking Best 3000 GDU Bromelain for at least 10 years and would not quit. Its a pineapple enzyme so it sure cant hurt you. I have now moved across country from where my friends shop is and was looking for a source to buy Bromelain and found pureformulas.com on the internet. I am very pleased with the price ease of ordering and quickness of receiving my order plus free shipping. Whats not to love about doing business with pureformulas.com. I will be purchasing all items in my vitamin regimen that they stock in the future.

    Pros

      It has the highest GDU rating of other brands of this product.

    Cons

      Nothing

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
