Bromelain, an enzyme derived from the stem of fresh pineapples, is probably best known for its use as a digestive aid, especially to assist in the digestion of fatty or high-protein meals. Recent research however, has turned many experts’ attention to its use for helping sports people with sprains and strains. It is believed to inhibit the body's production of prostaglandins associated with inflammation and pain whilst promoting the formation of those with an anti-inflammatory action.
Bromelain can also work well when taken in conjunction with turmeric so many practitioners recommend taking the two products alongside each other. In fact Bromelain appears to aid the absorption of curcumin, the active compound in turmeric.
To be of use a Bromelain product must contain at least 2000 gelatin-dissolving units (GDUs) per gram, which is why it is important to use a high strength product such as ours that contains this relevant level.
