The Bromelain Proteolytic Digestive Enzymes 400 mg capsules available from Nature's Wealth Vitamins Health Food Store are potent protein digestive enzymes derived from the stem of the pineapple plant.
Bromelain is mainly comprised of cysteine proteases, with smaller amounts of acid phosphatase, peroxidase, amylase and cellulase.
Bromelain has proven to be effective as an anti-inflammatory, in reducing the time needed for wound healing, as an anticarcinogenic and in aiding digestion. In wound healing, bromelain inhibits the release of chemicals that cause inflammation and pain, and stimulates the breakdown of a protein-complex called fibrin, which is one of the contributors to blood clotting. This allows blood to flow more easily to and from the injured parts of the body and allowing healing to progress more quickly with less pain.
The anti-inflammatory action of bromelain can also useful for reducing pain and joint stiffness, reducing inflammation of respiratory membranes and reducing fluid retention.
