Key Features

  • Naturally occurring enzyme extracted from the stem of the pineapple plant
  • A Perfect Partner to Glucosamine
  • One-a-day formulation

Product Overview

  • Gluten Free
  • Suitable for Vegetarians
  • Suitable for Vegans
  • 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 started using Bromelain when I had a bad bout of tennis elbow some years ago. It's apparently been used since the 1950's for this and it worked for me. I then also noticed after some time that my skin had improved. I don't know if this is the same for everyone but if I stop taking it for a while I really notice the difference and go back to using it.

We have been using Bromelain for several years and find the joint aches and pains we used to suffer are diminished to an acceptable level which obviates the need for conventional medication with all the attendant side effects .

28 February 2015

I tried them for over 3 Weeks to alleviate the inflammation pain caused by Costochondritis and they had no effect. I have even upped the dose to one in the Morning and one at night, and after 40 tablets I have not felt any better. For me they are just an expensive placebo, and I won't be buying any more.
