Bromelain is a powerful natural enzyme derived from plants that enables the body to more effectively digest protein – especially the “foreign proteins” ingested by the body during allergy season, such as pollens, dust, grasses and environmental pollutants. Unlike many digestive enzymes, Bromelain works in both the acid environment of the stomach and in the small intestine’s alkaline environment. But Bromelain is more than that – it’s also an extremely powerful anti-inflammatory and pain-reducing agent that’s an effective treatment for many inflammatory conditions: rheumatoid arthritis, sinusitis, and urinary-tract infections. It’s also used to help people recover from surgery and many types of injuries. In addition, Bromelain can reduce the thickness of mucus, thereby helping in the treatment of chronic bronchitis and even asthma. 60 Capsules.
