Bromelain‚ a mixture of proteases derived 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 shows 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.
Specially-coated bromelain-based formulations 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.
Bromelain has to be enteric-coated so that it will not 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.

Specially coated works better

√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
Very good bromelain!
I really like Specially-Coated Bromelain . I have taken bromelain before for both digestion and anti-inflamatory effects. The specially coated bromelain is supposed to be good when used for its anti-inflamatory effect which is better if you take it between meals- so Specially-Coated Bromelain is coated. My mom has arthritis in her back and has been using Specially-Coated Bromelain with very good results!
