Info: 60 Veg. Capsules
NOW's 500 mg Bromelain capsules with 2400 GDU per gram is one of the highest natural potencies of this proteolytic (protein-digesting) enzyme available, for those who need additional help in digesting protein-heavy meals (like steaks). Bromelain can also reduce many types of inflammation, including some caused by infection and by injuries (including surgeries).
While most enzymes are generally considered to be poorly absorbed, bromelain is one of the most bioavailable of all enzymes, and has been the subject of numerous studies worldwide. Although Bromelain can be obtained naturally from pineapples, that is not a staple for most people, making supplementation necessary to achieve optimum levels of this enzyme.
Each capsule contains:
500 mg Bromelain (Ananas comosus) (2,400 GDU*/g) (1.8E7 (1.8 x 10 to the 7th) FCC PU)
