Yamamoto® Research Bromelina - Bromelain is an extract rich in enzymes that derives from the Ananas comosus (L.) Merr. The pineapple is indicated for improving the digestive function, and assist the digestive process if taken with meals. It also supports the drainage of body fluids and the function of the microcirculation, relieving the sensation of heavy legs and combating cellulite.
Bromelina is a food supplement providing 2000 mg of enzyme at 5000 GDU activity per daily dose. Bromelain is a proteolytic enzyme extracted from the stem of pineapple.
A bromelain-based supplement helps support the body's natural defence mechanisms and is useful for all those conditions involving overproduction of inflammatory substances due to inflammatory, traumatic and painful processes affecting the skeleton, muscular apparatus or other areas such as the respiratory system. Its mechanism of action is well known as being ideal for improving and maintaining the tone of circulation (phlebotonic) and promoting the well-being of the bones and joints, respiratory and urogenital systems.
Bromelain is a very well-known enzyme found inside pineapples, and although it is present in all parts of those tasty exotic fruits, its maximum concentration is found in the stem of the fruit, the hardest part which is often discarded when eating. This particular enzyme, called "proteolytic", is one of the two constitutive enzymes of proteases known for protein digestion. It also contains amylase, cellulase, acid phosphatase and peroxidase in very small quantities. This role sees it capable of "breaking" the complex structure of proteins, so that the body can digest and absorb nutrients and discard the non-useful parts. Combined with a solid protein meal such as a meat based one, it will provide considerable help with digestion.
The enzymatic activity of bromelain also boasts other properties for which it is better known, namely anti-inflammatory, fibrinolytic and antithrombotic, qualities that have seen it used for a long time in the health sector. There are in fact "historical" pharmaceutical products based on bromelain, indicated in the "edemigenous processes of a phlogistic nature in the medical and surgical fields", to reduce swelling, inflammation and pain after bruises, dental extractions and surgical procedures, and accelerate the healing process. The mechanisms of reabsorption of edema and pain reduction are not yet fully clear, but seem to derive from blocking the production of quinine, a powerful substance released from soft tissue after trauma. In addition there is increased production of plasmin, the enzyme that cleaves fibrin and therefore acts against blood clots. Thanks to its anti-edema action, many women know that bromelain is also often suggested and used with satisfactory results against stagnation of liquids, especially against the swelling of the lower limbs. The BROMELAIN supplement contains 2000 mg of enzymes with activity equal to 5000 GDU per recommended daily dose, and is recommended to help with the digestive function, assisting the digestive process if taken with meals, but above all it provides excellent support for draining body fluids and for microcirculation functionality, relieving the sensation of heavy legs and counteracting the imperfections of cellulite.
