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.

Take this to help knee joints and seem to have helped as knees are no longer as painful!

26 March 2015

I suffer with a bad back, I am hoping this will help as it has anti-inflammatory properties and I have heard pineapple is a good source, so I am hoping the tablets will help.

They support my prescribed medication

23 March 2015

I take a range of vitamins due to arthritis and bromeliad is just one of them so it's difficult to attribute the degree of help that in itself is giving me.

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 .

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.

General anti-inflammatory

My joints are very flexible and can go for longer walks

22 February 2015

I take this instead of Ibuprophen for the relief of minor aches and pains in my joints.The anti inflammatory properties keeps my joints and fingers supple in my hands. I would not expect it to work to alleviate serious pain but it's worth a try! I take a tablet every day.

Vitamin B - the best and most highly recommeded products

13 February 2015

Have been taking glucosamine for 18 years and at 61 am still playing Squash with only the normal aches and pains afterwards. Now also take Bromelain to reduce joint inflammation after heavy exercise. Would recommend

10 February 2015

This is the first time I've tried Bromelain so it's too early to say whether it's going to help or not.
