Bromelain Supplements

Bromelain supplements helps to improve digestion and many health practitioners have been suggesting bromelain to their patients to improve wound healing and reduce inflammation. Bromelain is a proteolytic enzyme that is found in fruit and the stems of pineapple. A proteolytic enzyme is an enzyme that digests protein.

What are the Health Benefits of Bromelain?

Since cooking breaks down many enzymes, a bromelain supplement may help improve digestion of foods containing protein. The smaller components of protein are called amino acids and they are needed for creating neurotransmitters and muscle tissue.

Most of the benefits those taking a bromelain supplement are seeking have to do with the absorption of the entire enzyme. This is why the systemic benefits of reducing inflammation can occur.

Reducing Inflammation and Swelling

In Europe, bromelain supplements have been used to reduce inflammation and swelling following surgery. This natural remedy for inflammation has been shown to also reduce healing time, prevent bruising and even reduce the pain that occurs following surgery.

A study double-blind study done to determine bromelain's effectiveness at reducing swelling, pain and inflammation in 150 women who had an episiotomy revealed the following: Following a 3 day course of a bromelain supplement, 90 percent of the women had excellent recovery compared to 44 percent in the placebo group of women.

Bromelain and Arthritis

In Europe, bromelain supplements are one of the most often used supplements to help reduce arthritis pain and inflammation.

According to a research study, bromelain supplements were just as effective as taking an NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory) such as Advil in lowering the inflammation and pain that occurs with arthritis.
