Arthritis: Bromelain Treatment for Pain

By    |   Sunday, 04 Oct 2015 06:52 PM

Pineapple and paradise just seem to go together, and for those diagnosed with arthritis, bromelain from pineapples may offer blissful relief they need.

Not many studies have been done to assess bromelain and how it affects arthritis, but it may help with pain and inflammation, according to the Arthritis Foundation.

Bromelain is an enzyme that breaks down proteins inside pineapples. It can be found in both the stem and fruit of the plant.

Some claim this enzyme can decrease pain and swelling in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis in addition to increasing their mobility, according to the foundation.

University of Maryland’s Medical Center said bromelain combined with rutosid and trypsin reduced osteoarthritis knee pain as well as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as Aleve, Motrin, and Advil. Overall, however, for osteoarthritis in the knee and shoulder, results are mixed, and more research is needed for rheumatoid arthritis.

Bromelain can stop the production of substances that cause pain and inflammation, according to WholeHealth Chicago. It also thins blood by destroying fibrin, a protein that works to clot blood, in the body.

Currently, this pineapple enzyme is used in treating acute inflammation and some sports injuries, according the National Center for Biotechnology Information. Bromelain is found in health food stores as well as pharmacies.

The foundation recommended dosage of three times a day between meals of 500 mg. to 2,000 mg. in capsules.

Since it is a digestive aid, the Daily Mail recommends taking the supplement on an empty stomach or else part of it may be lost to digestion.

The Arthritis Foundation noted that those who are allergic to pineapples should avoid bromelain. Additionally, it can cause digestive problems, including diarrhea, and increase the effects of blood-thinning medications.

No serious adverse effects have been found from the use of bromelain, according to Oxford University Press.
