The consensus of medical opinion suggests that orally-administered bromelain, taken on an empty stomach, exerts a salutary effect on recovery and healing in cases of inflammation, injuries and tissue traumas of various kinds, including post-operative problems.
Bromelain, taken with meals, acts as a protease, enhancing the release of short peptides and amino acids from food proteins. For inflammation support effect, it must be taken on an empty stomach.
BromInj supplies a complex of protease with nutrients and other factors known to modulate the metabolism of prostanoids in a manner that favors the resolution of inflammation.
Curcumin, a plant pigment derived from tumeric, reduced edema and wound tenderness in a controlled study of surgery patients.
Bioflavonoids and vitamin C have been used clinically to effectively reduce recovery time in injured athletes.
