Bromelain is a sulfur-containing digestive enzyme that is extracted from the stem and the fruit of the pineapple and used for everything from inflammation to sinusitis.1 It's a popular natural digestive aid due to its ability to break down proteins.
As a common ingredient in nutritional supplements marketed as a natural pain remedy for arthritis, Bromelain is used for a myriad of ailments. Among these are inflammation (especially of the nose and sinuses), recovery after surgery, ulcerative colitis, and pulmonary edema.2 Bromelain has also been shown to enhance the absorption of medications, particularly antibiotics while providing relief for various cardiovascular disorders.3
In addition to the anti-inflammatory and digestive properties of Bromelain are also its uses for relieving hay fever, removing dead and damaged tissue after a burn, helping muscles to relax, and assisting the body to shed fat.2 Our Interactive Cleanse DietTM will provide you with all of these benefits and more due to its powerful combination of natural supplements while helping you reach your weight loss goals.
