Compounded from "Bromelain 2400" (2400 GDU/g). GDU: Gelatin digestion unit. Available in bottles of 100 enteric tablets, bottles of 90 capsules 500 mg/capsule.
Derived from the Pineapple stem (Ananus Cosumus), Bromelain has significant activity that supports anti-inflammation action in this body and supports healing. This is attributable to the Bromelain enzyme Escharase (Bromelain is a combination of several enzymes). Bromelain and its group of enzymes also exhibit the ability to stem blood platelet aggregation. Bromelains are also digestive enzymes and support better digestion and in some cases aid appetite suppression.
Bromelains and Digestion
Bromelains are a group of enzymes isolated from the stem of the pineapple plant, Ananus cosumus. The protein digesting enzymes (proteolytic) of Bromelain are responsible for the digestion (lysis) of proteins into peptons and single amino acids. On the molecular scale, the digestive action of Bromelain is amazingly rapid and effective: a single enzyme molecule can split 30,000 chemical bonds per second and release the same number of amino acids from a protein.
Bromelain can be recommended as a digestive aid for patients suffering from high acid conditions. It can replace pepsin, pancreatin or papain preparations. Bromelain is the least allergenic of all available digestive aids.
Bromelain and Inflammation
More and more studies are pointing to inflammation in the cardiovascular walls as a likely contributor to heart problems. European doctors have used Bromelain in heart health applications.
Bromelain and Healing
In addition to being proteolytic, Bromelain enzymes have two other physiological actions: 1) a "spreading factor" and 2) escharase activity. The "spreading factor" helps chemicals spread into body tissues and it even increases the uptake of nutrients or drugs by the brain. The escharase enzyme is the most stable of the group. Escharase is responsible for the anti-inflammatory, anti-edema effects of Bromelain. Escharase has applications for aiding in the removal of dead skin tissues caused by burns, hence its name, "escharase." Bromelains are recommended in supporting anti-inflammatory response, for example in wound care, swelling caused by burns, swelling caused by sprains, strains, post-operative swelling and nasal or sinus pressure.
