• Musculoskeletal health‡
• Joint comfort‡
• Supports healthy microbial balance‡
FUNCTION AND MECHANISM OF ACTION
Bromelain is obtained from the lower stems of the pineapple plant which contains cysteine proteases. They are glycoproteins with one carbohydrate chain per protein molecule with an active site represented by the reactive sulphhydryl group of cysteine. These proteolytic enzymes support healthy cytokine levels and regulatory balance in the body. Research suggests that bromelain may promote muscle and joint comfort by providing support for healthy platelet function at the higher dose of 3000 FIP units Bromelain has nonspecifc proteolytic activity factors and may provide support for a healthy microbial balance. ‡
