Bromelain is an anti-inflammatory agent and for this reason is helpful in healing minor injuries, particularly sprains and strains, muscle injuries, and the pain, swelling, and tenderness that accompany sports injuries. Also as a result of its anti-inflammatory effect, bromelain has been found to dramatically reduce postoperative swelling. It has been found that Bromelain is effective in reducing swelling, bruising, and pain, for women having minor surgery in conjunction with giving birth (episiotomy). The anti-inflammatory effect of bromelain is the probable reason this enzyme has been found effective for people suffering from sinusitis.
Again, probably due to its anti-inflammatory action, bromelain was helpful to patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
Bromelain is a natural blood thinner because it prevents excessive blood platelet stickiness. This may explain, in part, the positive reports in a few clinical trials of bromelain to decrease symptoms of angina and thrombophlebitis.
In addition, bromelain reduces the thickness of mucus, which may benefit patients with asthma or chronic bronchitis.
Bromelain may cause nausea, vomiting, and diarrhoea. Metrorrhagia and menorrhagia have occasionally occurred. Hypersensitivity reactions including skin reactions and asthma.
