Extra Info About Bromelain
Beeyoutiful’s Bromelain is nature’s anti-inflammatory enzyme that is derived from the stems of pineapples. This proteolytic enzyme is a great aid to help digest proteins, but it may provide beneficial relief for sports injuries, swelling, sore muscles, arthritis, infections, and even sinus problems.
Bromelain’s primary job is to reduce inflammation which can, in turn, benefit many of the body’s systems. Through the eight unique enzymes found within Bromelain, it is able to decrease swelling by eliminating excess fibrins that have accumulated due to inflammation, stress, injury or stress. This action alone prohibits the body from forming excessive clots and and buildup in the arteries. Finally, Bromelain slows both the accumulation of kinins and prostaglandins in the body which both can contribute to chronic disease in the body.
What health complications can be helped with Bromelain?
Joint and muscle pain, including arthritis- may decrease inflammation, and thus it may help reduce the discomfort and soreness associated with swelling, injuries, soreness, or even surgery. In some European countries, Bromelain has been used after surgery to reduce swelling and help add pain relief. Native Americans used it to treat wounds and injuries for centuries before it became a known supplement in the mid-1950s.
Sinus/allergies- May help decrease swelling and inflammation in the sinus passages, reducing coughing and lung inflammation as well.
Infections- although not well documented, there have been several studies that show the benefits of Bromelain in relation to bacteria and some viruses. It is worth considering the addition of Bromelain to an immune-boosting regimen to work synergistically with other supplements.
