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.
Bromelain is obtained from the lower stems of the pineapple plant. It is a combination of enzymes that have shown to support healthy inflammatory response. It reduces the production of proinflammatory prostaglandins by modulating the arachidonate cascade. Its enzymatic activity may reduce the discomfort associated with injuries. Bromelain also acts to help prevent allergens 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 allergenic response.
