Bromelain 500mg 120caps
Bromelain helps to improve the digestion of carbs, meats, and fatty foods in a convenient, 2000 GDU capsule and helps to reduce stomach upset/symptoms.
Originally isolated in the late 1800s, Bromelain can hydrolyze and break down a wide variety of proteins. By doing so, it improves the overall digestive effectiveness of other macronutrients. Because of its protease functioning, it is traditionally used to aid various digestive processes and reduce heartburn due to poor digestion. Studies conclude that bromelain is particularly useful when it functions with other digestive enzymes, such as amylase and lipase.
Amazingly, bromelain also exudes anti-inflammatory properties—it promotes the production of cytokines. By furthering the chemical breakdown of macronutrients and preventing inflammation associated with the digestive tract, bromelain also reduces bloating, gas, and other symptoms associated with an irritable bowel.
