Bromelain General Information
Bromelain is a collection of protein-digesting enzymes found in pineapple juice and in the stem of pineapple plants that is primarily produced in Japan, Hawaii, and Taiwan. Even though most of the original research for Bromelain was performed in Japan and Hawaii, by the mid Bromelain Source 90s, it had become the thirteenth most common individual herbal product sold in Germany. A researcher named Chittenden was the first to identify the presence of proteolytic enzymes in pineapple juice around 1892 and called it “bromelin”. Later the term “Bromelain” was introduced and originally applied to any protease from any plant member of the plant family Bromeliaceae. Bromelain was first introduced as a therapeutic supplement in 1957.

The stump or root portion of the pineapple plant after harvest of the fruit is how Bromelain is prepared. This stump or root portion is collected from the fields, peeled and crushed to extract the juice containing the soluble enzyme Bromelain. The process is carried out in factories that are under great scrutiny to assure microbiological quality and enzyme purity.

An on the side note: Pineapple workers often have their fingerprints almost completely obliterated due to the proteolytic action of Bromelain. These are some hard working harvesters.

Bromelain Uses & Scientific Evidence For
Germany’s Commission E has approved Bromelain for use in reducing swelling in the nose and sinuses caused by injuries and operations. It has also been used for other types of swelling and inflammation even though there is no scientific evidence to support its use outside the nose and sinus areas. In Europe, Bromelain is used to aid in recovery from surgery and athletic injuries, but they also recommend it for the treatment of hemorrhoids, phlebitis, inflammation of the veins of the leg, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, and dysmenorrhea (menstrual pain). Bromelain is active both in the acid environment of the stomach and the alkaline environment of the small intestine, which makes it fairly effective as an oral digestive aid as well.

Dr. David H. Rahm, president of the ViataMedica Corporation in Manhattan Beach, California had this to say about Bromelain, “Bromelain is an anti-inflammatory that prevents soft tissue swelling and decreases various markers of pain and inflammation. It also enhances the effectiveness of antibiotics. Bromelain is best administered 72 hours prior to surgery, taken three to four times a day in doses of about 2,000 to 3,000 milk-clotting units a day (MCUs).” These findings were presented to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (2004).

Bromelain Dosage Information
For use as a digestive aid, the standard dosage of Bromelain is 500 mg 3 times a day with or between meals. Bromelain is measured in MCUs (milk-clotting units). The standard preparation should contain 2,000MCUs per gram. For treating other conditions, please read and follow product label directions.

Bromelain Safety & Interaction Information
Bromelain appears to be non-toxic; however, because it “thins the blood” somewhat, it should not be combined with drugs such as Coumadin (Warfarin) without a doctor’s supervision. Do not self-treat if you have phlebitis or another leg vein disease. Safety in young children, pregnant or nursing women, or those with liver or kidney disease is not known. Anyone with allergies to pineapple or beestings as well as anyone with a history of heart palpitations should discuss with their Doctor/Health Care Professional before consuming Bromelain.
