Specially-Coated Bromelain
60 enteric coated tablets
 
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 enteric-coated 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.

The reason bromelain has to be enteric-coated is that it will 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.
