Bromelain Dosage

Because dietary supplements, including bromelain, do not require FDA approval, there are no clearly established dosing guidelines that are both safe and effective. As a result, dosing information comes from bromelain's use in other countries or from practical experience with the supplement. As there is no standard dosage of bromelain, it is reasonable to follow the dosing instructions provided on the label of your particular product.

An Introduction to the Dosage of Bromelain

As is the case with natural products and dietary supplements, there is simply not enough quality information available to recommend a safe and effective bromelain dosage at this time. As a result, much of the available information for dosing guidelines comes from the supplement's use in other countries or from practical experience with the supplement.
 

Reasonable Dosing for Bromelain

Because dietary supplements and foods do not require FDA approval, studies to find the safest and most effective dosages for dietary supplements or foods are rarely performed. Without such studies, typically only vague "trial and error" information is available. Even if good dosing information were available, there may be significant variability of the content, purity, and strength among different brands of the same dietary supplement, making consistently safe and effective dosing difficult. There may even be significant variability in the content, purity, and strength among different batches or lots of the exact same products. To make matters even more confusing, there are different ways to measure the potency of a dose of bromelain, such as in mg (milligrams) or GDU (gelatin dissolving units).
 
Various sources recommend a wide variety of bromelain dosages, from low dosages (such as 80 mg twice a day) to higher dosages (such as 1000 mg three times daily). Because there is little high-quality information about bromelain dosing, it is reasonable to follow the dosing instructions provided on the label of your particular product.
