DESCRIPTION
Bromelain-5000, provided by Douglas Laboratories, supplies 5,000 m.c.u (milk clotting units) per capsule. Milk clotting units are a unit of measure of enzymatic activity.
FUNCTIONS
Bromelain is obtained from the lower stems of the pineapple plant. It is a proteolytic enzyme that supports healthy cytokine levels and regulatory balance in the body. It reduces the production of unhealthy prostaglandins by modulating the arachidonate cascade. Its enzymatic activity may provide comfort associated with injuries. Bromelain also acts to help prevent foreign invaders from crossing the gastrointestinal tract, and assists in the breakdown of large macromolecular protein complexes. This reduces the chance that these complexes will leave the stomach untouched or in large fractions retaining their recognizable antigenic form that could pass through gastric or intestinal lesions thereby inducing an immune response.
