Bromelain is a mixture of protein digesting enzymes derived from pineapple plant stems.* When taken with food, bromelain assists with the breakdown of protein, helping maintain proper digestion. When taken on an empty stomach, bromelain helps support joint comfort and the body’s healing abilities.* This extra-strength formula provides 2,400 GDU (gelatin digesting units) per gram—up to four times more concentrated than the common 600 GDU potency.
This stuff works. I have capsulitis of the second toe. It was very painful, and difficult to walk. The doctors prescribed OTC anti-inflammatory pills. But my stomach cannot tolerate. The doctors approved me to try Bromelain as a substitute. Lindberg Bromelain got rid of 100% of the &@!#, and now I can walk again. I take 2 capsules, 3 times per day (3 grams, 7200 GDU). It took about 2 weeks to take effect. I have no side-effects. I highly recommend this product. Other brands have less GDU per gram. It is the GDU, not the MG you need to look for. More GDU means more power. I researched this product, and no problems were reported with a large therapeutic dose. The pills must be taken on an "empty stomach," meaning one hour before or after your meal. Otherwise it works as a digestive aid, rather than an anti-inflammatory.
