|A specially coated
bromelain formulation has been well-studied for its ability to help reduce the
expression of inflammatory factors. Approved for use in Germany since 1993,
bromelain is a proteolytic enzyme extracted from pineapple stems. Recent studies
suggested its proteolytic activity can contribute to supporting better
joint health by aiding in maintaining healthy pathways of chemicals
related to normal tissue function.
Now, sufferers of unwanted joint changes can benefit from evidence
that specially coated bromelain-based formulations may significantly help promote healthy joint function.
In a number of clinical trials conducted on people needing help with
maintaining healthy joint function, results have proven that
bromelain formulations were as effective as other approaches in
promoting healthy joints 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 it yielded an overall improvement in general
well-being, along with improvement in stiffness and physical function.
bromelain has to be enteric-coated is that it will be used as a
digestive enzyme if activated in the stomach. Enteric-coated
tablets pass into the small intestine where they are absorbed into the
bloodstream to provide systemic benefits.
