Unlike most digestive enzymes, bromelain is active both in an acid environment of the stomach and the alkaline environment of the small intestine. This makes it effective as a digestive aid. To a certain extent, the enzymes in bromelain appear to be absorbed whole into the bloodstream. In the bloodstream, bromelain can effect the whole body, producing anti-inflammatory and blood-thinning effects.


Dosage
The recommended dosage varies widely according to the form used and the condition treated. For inflammatory conditions, such as injuries, pain, and sinusitis, bromelain should be taken on an empty stomach. For poor digestion, bromelain should be taken just before meals. 


Safety
Bromelain is essentially nontoxic. Occasional side effects include allergic reactions and mild digestive distress.

Bromelain may amplify the effect of the following drugs: sedative drugs such as benzodiazapenes, blood thinners such as Coumadin (warfarin) or heparin, and antibiotics.
