What is Bromelain?

Derived from pineapple stems, bromelain is a digestive enzyme that has been used as a folk herbal remedy among South Americans for generations. The beneficial substance, which is actually a family of enzymes, was first isolated from pineapple in 1891. By 1957, bromelain was introduced as a nutritional supplement.**

Bromelain is especially adept at breaking down proteins, making it popular as both a digestive support supplement and a meat tenderizer. This proteolytic (protein-digesting) activity optimizes overall digestive health and comfort, as it helps the body easily break down protein into its constituent amino acids. Much research has been done in support of bromelain’s ability to assist with protein digestion, especially in those with digestive issues such as lactose intolerance. Notably, the pineapple-based compound remains active as an enzyme in both the stomach and small intestine. For those who prefer a vegetarian alternative to animal-based enzyme supplementation, bromelain may be an ideal digestive supplement choice.**

In addition to its widespread use as a digestive aid, bromelain has also been shown to be a safe and natural method of modulating inflammation in the body. It is believed to balance compounds called prostaglandins, thereby supporting a healthy, normal inflammatory response. In combination with its digestion-supportive benefits, this inflammation-modulating effect may help to soothe the gastrointestinal tract—promoting internal healing and comfort.**

Bromelain’s inflammation-modulating activity may also soothe achy joints while supporting flexibility and mobility. It is often taken as a post-workout supplement, as its inflammation-modulating properties appear to promote muscle comfort while accelerating recovery from strenuous exercise and injuries. The same properties have been studied for their potential to help with the healing of wounds and burns, especially when the compound is administered as a topical cream. It may also help to optimize comfortable sinuses and clear skin.**

Bromelain Supplements

Bromelain supplements have been widely used for over fifty years. The compound is presented as a standalone supplement but may also be combined with other digestive enzymes or paired with quercetin or turmeric. Supplements are most often available as tablets or capsules, though it is also available in topical creams.**

Bromelain Directions for Use

You should never begin any sort of nutritional supplement regimen without first speaking with your doctor. There is no standard bromelain dosage, but it is commonly presented in servings of 500 mg to 1000 mg.**
