The Bromelain products featured in the Store can help reduce post-operative swelling (edema) and discomfort. Bromelain is a natural, safe proteolytic enzyme (an enzyme that helps in the digestion of protein) that is extracted from the root of the pineapple stem and is beneficial for reducing post-operative swelling, treating tissue injury, lessening postoperative pain, and helping accelerate healing. Bromelain inhibits prostaglandins that cause inflammation (swelling). By slowing down prostaglandins, Bromelain promotes the formation of anti-inflammatory prostaglandins that lead to less swelling. Bromelain works almost exactly like Motrin, Naprosyn, Voltaren, Clinoril and many other drugs of the kind, but it is far safer because it is natural and it does not have the side effects of prescription medicines that are considered negative for the healing journey. In addition to helping reduce swelling, Bromelain can lessen postoperative pain, and help accelerate the overall healing process.
A number of the Bromelain products featured in the Store are combined with Quercetin, which helps enhance the healing effects of Bromelain. Quercetin inhibits the release of histamine and further helps in reducing swelling.
How Should I Administer Bromelain?
Bromelain is typically taken in pill, pellet, or capsule form to help reduce swelling and post-operative discomfort. For best results, do not eat or drink for 15 minutes before or 15 minutes after taking this homeopathic remedy. Ingesting food 15 minutes before or after you take the pill will diminish the effectiveness of Bromelain. It is recommended to administer Bromelain between meals and preferably on an empty stomach. Additionally, handling the product with your hands is not recommended.
