Specially-Coated Bromelain
60 enteric coated tablets
Item Catalog Number: 01203

Bromelain, a mixture of proteases extracted from the stem of the pineapple, has been used by Europeans for many years to inhibit inflammatory factors. Bromelain’s fluid-regulating properties may result from its ability to effectively suppress inflammatory cytokine production, inhibit neutrophil migration, and support removal of some cell surface inflammatory molecules. Research also shows that bromelain may help support healthy blood viscosity and blood platelet aggregation.106,107

Bromelain has to be enteric coated so that it will not be activated in the stomach and used as a digestive enzyme. Enteric-coated bromelain tablets pass into the small intestine where they are absorbed into the bloodstream to provide systemic benefits.

Specially coated bromelain may significantly modulate inflammatory reactions in the joints. Research has demonstrated that enteric-coated bromelain formulations are at least as effective as other approaches in supporting joint comfort, function and health and are well tolerated.108-110 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).110

Another study showed that specially coated bromelain yielded an overall improvement in general well-being, along with improvement in comfort and physical function.109

        Comments about Life Extension Specially-Coated Bromelain, 60 enteric coated tablets:

        I take this product each morning on an empty stomach, as directed. Have been taking it almost a month, and while I can't say it has "cured" my inflammation problems, I will say I notice an improvement. I will continue to use this product. It's an oval-type tablet but I have had no problem swallowing it and absolutely no problem with an after-taste. The only reason I gave this a "Good" rating is because I haven't been taking it long enough, I feel, to get the optimal results.

          Comments about Life Extension Specially-Coated Bromelain, 60 enteric coated tablets:

          I use this product once a day to ease inflammation response. It helps reduce aches because when inflammation is reduced, so are aches. I prefer a capsul over a tablet but this isn't a dealkiller for me.

                      Works best for head cavity discomfort if taken every day rather than episodically. I take two every day and increase to three if my symptoms start returning or I see a high pollen count reported on the news.
