Bromelain is the name given to the crude aqueous extract obtained from the stem and fruit of the pineapple plant (Ananas comosus Merr.). Its main active components include a number of enzymes showing proteolytic activity, which were first shown to be anti-inflammatory by Uhlig (1981). Bromelain’s mode of action as an anti-inflammatory and analgesic agent is thought to be multifaceted. There is experimental evidence to suggest that its effects on blood coagulation (through increasing serum fibrinolytic activity) and prostaglandin levels (by decreasing levels of PGE2 and thromboxane A2) may be important in reducing inflammation. Its action as an analgesic is thought to be both as a secondary effect of reducing pain-inducing factors, such as oedema, debris and immune complexes, and through a direct influence on pain mediators such as bradykinin.
In the course of chronic pancreatitis, exocrine insufficiency with steatorrhea is a major clinical problem, which becomes overt after destruction of more than 90% of the gland. In patients with exocrine insufficiency due to chronic pancreatitis, pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy reduces maldigestion, prevents weight loss, and improves abdominal symptoms such as diarrhoea and gas bloating.
The inflammatory response is a predictable phenomenon that ensues musculoskeletal injury. While this response is a necessary component of the healing process, uncontrolled inflammation may prolong skeletal muscle recovery after intense exercise or training induced injury. Consequently, this type of muscle injury may delay return to normal function. Previous research has suggested that oral supplementation of protease may shorten recovery time after injury. It is believed that this is accomplished through early inhibition of the arachidonic cascade resulting in accelerated healing.
Bio Enzymes provides a unique combination of naturally flavored chewable enzymes formula specifically created to aid the digestive system. Studies show that an impaired or sub-optimal digestion has profound implications on general health. When the digestive system is compromised, the capacity to break down food will diminish, making supplementation of digestive enzymes crucial for the absorption and utilization of nutrients.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding; If you have pancreatitis, pancreatic exocrine insufficiency or cystic fibrosis; If you have anaemia, gallstones, hiatus hernia or gastroesophageal reflux; If you have gastrointestinal lesions/ulcers; diabetes; are taking anticoagulant agents/blood thinners, anti-inflammatory agents, antibiotics, other enzyme products, or are having surgery, consult your healthcare practitioner prior to use. If you have an allergy to latex or fruits, consult your healthcare practitioner prior to use. If symptoms persist or worsen, consult your healthcare practitioner. If you are sensitive to pancreatic enzymes or to pork proteins, do not use. Hypersensitivity/allergy, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal/epigastric pain and/or heartburn have been known to occur, in which case discontinue use (and consult your healthcare practitioner). Some people may experience gastroesophageal reflux.
