Bromelain

   

Product overview

Vegetarian Suitable for Vegetarians

Vegan Suitable for Vegans

Gelatin free Gelatin Free

Each high strength Healthspan bromelain tablet provides 500mg of standardised bromelain extract, the level recommended by our nutrition experts.

Enzymes are normally broken down during digestion, however, bromelain possesses tightly-bonded structures that make it resistant to digestion and so it is absorbed in a more efficient, intact form.

While bromelain is present throughout the pineapple, it is predominantly found in the stem of the plant, which is why just eating pineapple will not give you a sufficient amount of bromelain.

I find that bromelain has an anti-inflammatory effect, albeit fairly mild. I do notice the difference when I run out!

Thank you for your review.

Bromelain helps with joint pain. It was initially recommended to my Mum who had a painful thumb joint which necessitated her wearing a support on it. Since using Bromelain she has not had any pain from it or needed the support.
I started using it for joint pain and it has really helped. if I miss a tablet then I know as the pain increases.

Thank you for your review.

OK, it's a companion to glucosamine so I use it if I have a joint-pain crisis.

I have ticked poor because there is no average button and my disappointment at certain of your products prevents me from ticking the good button.
After some years as a customer I will not be ordering again because of your use of artificial sweeteners in several of your products. This is appalling.
You cannot sell these additives and call them healthy.
The gullible public trusts you and you don't seem to care about quality.
Sad to find out that you are just like all the others.
I cannot complete the rest of the form because I don't actually know if or how they help. Perhaps when I stop taking them I will notice a difference. Perhaps.
I have ticked not tried in order to submit.

we have been taking Bromelain for several years and hope its playing its part
in keeping our knees mobile, we would have to leave it off for several weeks
to see if we had any problems, but we are most reluctant to do this.

Helps in arthritis pain

Thank you for your review - It's great to hear this is helping with your Arthritic pains.

As an active athlete I develop inflammation on a regular basis. Sore muscles, inflamed tendons etc. I wanted an alternative to NSAIDs like ibuprofen. The promise of bromelain was high but the reality was disappointing. Although the did help with some Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) they did nothing to reduce my knee inflammation even after a month's use. I believe the efficacy of bromelain is over stated at least in these doses.

I believe that this is supposed to support the taking of glucosamine for osteoarthritis.
I read recently that it shouldn't be taken continuously, so I did stop for a while and noticeably set myself back. After 2/3 weeks of starting again felt an improvement. So am now continuing to take it regularly.

very good service and advice

Not sure how much it helps as I also take Glucosamine and drink pineapple juice.

Thank you for your review.
