Leguminosae) (seeds Bromelain is a kind of proteolytic enzyme that is obtained from pineapple. It has admirable qualities including improving protein digestion, reducing inflammation and treating indigestion. Pineapple itself has been traditionally used to enhance digestion as well as ease inflammation. With countless studies about Bromelain, the benefits of this anti-inflammatory enzyme are ever increasing and even more recognized now. How does Bromelain work? Because it is considered a proteolytic enzyme, Bromelain has the capability to fight off inflammation which may affect the tissues and organs in the body. It helps the body be cleansed from harmful toxins. It also helps prevent blood clotting and improve food and nutrient digestion. Bromelain is also effective in fighting off viral and bacterial activities in the human body. The anti-inflammatory effect of Bromelain comes from its capability to prevent the formation of kinnins or that which is responsible for inflammation. Its effectiveness at preventing blood clotting is attributed to its ability of breaking down fibrins that often lead to blood clots. In the process of breaking down the sugar complex fibrins, Bromelain also helps eliminate tissue swelling. Who can benefit from Bromelain? Everyone may benefit from Bromelain. Due to its health-boosting properties and anti-inflammatory abilities, it is commonly administered to patients after surgery. It can help reduce pain and swelling in the body especially post-surgery. Bromelain is also helpful for individuals who are engaged in sports specifically those nursing some injuries involving minor muscular ones such as strains in the muscles and sprains. It is also advantageous for individuals who are suffering from acute tendinitis. Bromelain is also applicable for everyday use. It can treat burns, stings and insect bites. Individuals with bone fractures may also find the Bromelain extract helpful. What are the other benefits of Bromelain extract? Individuals who are affected by rheumatoid arthritis, can resort to taking Bromelain extract for pain relief. The Rehabilitation Centre for Cardiovascular and Rheumatic Diseases in Saalfelden, Germany found that patients who are suffering from higher pain levels from osteoarthritis have found great relief from taking Bromelain extract. This has been proven in a study conducted in 2006. It particularly helps enhance the T-cells which is essential in immune defense. It has also been found that Bromelain improves other immune mechanisms by promoting efficiency of the system. In addition, Bromelain is also considered an immune system booster. However, it has not been clearly established if it is helpful for immunocompromised patients yet. Other benefits of Bromelain extract include reducing bad cholesterol, promoting healthy menstruation by balancing and regulating hormones. Its enzymatic properties are also beneficial in treating warts. It also has a positive effect for patients with Peyronie's disease as well as those who suffer from respiratory tract infections. Quercetin is a chemical found naturally in a number of foods (including apples, onions, teas, berries, and red wine) and in some herbs (such as ginkgo biloba and St. John's wort. Quercetin acts as an antioxidant, which means it scavenges free radicals (chemical by-products known to harm cell membranes and damage DNA). Available as a dietary supplement, quercetin also possesses antihistamine and anti-inflammatory properties. Uses for Quercetin Benefits of Quercetin Here's a look at the science behind quercetin health's effects. 1) Allergy Relief Quercetin is thought to prevent the release of histamine from certain immune cells. (An inflammatory chemical, histamine is involved in allergic symptoms such as sneezing and itching.) Although lab experiments suggest that quercetin may help fight allergies, a 2002 report cautions that "there are no good clinical research data on the use of quercetin" for patients with allergic rhinitis. 2) High Blood Pressure In a 2007 study of 41 adults, researchers found that taking 730 mg of quercetin daily for 28 days reduced blood pressure in people with hypertension. However, blood pressure was not altered in study members with prehypertension (a condition marked by slightly elevated blood pressure). 3) Athletic Endurance Quercetin may be no better than a placebo when it comes to enhancing athletic performance, according to a 2009 study of 30 healthy men. For the study, some participants consumed a sports drink containing 250 mg of quercetin four times a day for up to 16 days, while a placebo group drank the same beverage without quercetin. Results showed that the short-term quercetin supplementation failed to improve cycling performance and the ability of muscles to synthesize energy. 4) Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome Findings from a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial indicate that use of quercetin supplements may improve symptoms in most men with chronic pelvic pain syndrome. The study involved 30 men with prostatitis, a condition that involves inflammation of the prostate gland. Quercetin and Cancer Studies on cell cultures have shown that quercetin may help slow the growth of some types of cancer cells. What's more, some animal-based research indicates that quercetin may protect against certain types of cancer (such as colon cancer). However, since there is currently a lack of human studies on quercetin's cancer-fighting effects, it's too soon to tell whether quercetin might play a significant role in cancer prevention. For now, the American Cancer Society states that it is "reasonable to include foods that contain quercetin as part of a balanced diet with an emphasis on fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains." Quercetin and Bromelain When taking quercetin in supplement form, it may be beneficial to choose a product that also contains papain and/or bromelain (plant-derived enzymes shown to increase the intestine's absorption of quercetin).
