If you suffer from inflammation in your joints‚ you know the pain is nearly unbearable at times. The condition even takes a toll on your ability to complete daily tasks that used to be simple‚ such as bending to tie your shoes. Certain health conditions require you to take steps to reduce inflammation‚ which will ultimately reduce the pain.

Douglas Labs’ Bromelain-5000 is one option to help you decrease the amount of inflammation. The active ingredient bromelain—which is derived from the lower stems of the pineapple plant—reduces pro-inflammatory prostaglandins‚ unsaturated fatty acids that lead to inflammation. In addition‚ the bromelain in this supplement has been shown to support healthy immune response‚ while also preventing allergens from entering your gastrointestinal tract. You may also benefit from taking this product if you have an inflammatory bowel condition such as ulcerative colitis.

Other benefits that Bromelain-5000 may have include the reduction of hay fever symptoms‚ as well as the enhancement of protein digestion. Some evidence suggests that Bromelain-5000 assists with the healing process after an injury or surgery; this is due to the fact that it's thought to decrease swelling‚ inflammation‚ pain‚ and bruising.

Generally‚ nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) are used to relieve this pain and inflammation. Certain pain medications reduce the pro-inflammatory prostaglandins; however‚ the enzymes found in Bromelain-5000 may have the same effect with only natural ingredients.

Bromelain is the sole active ingredient in this supplement‚ and you should take it between one to three daily‚ unless your health care professional recommends otherwise. Typically‚ one 60-capsule bottle of Bromelain-5000 by Douglas Laboratories should last between 20 days and two months.
