Bromelain Research

Bromelain is claimed to work for several purposes, such as aiding digestion, fighting cancer, and helping remove blood clots. However, there is little high-quality evidence to show that bromelain really works for most uses, although it certainly seems to show promise for some conditions (such as osteoarthritis).
One bromelain research study suggests that using this supplement with two other active ingredients (trypsin and rutin) may work for osteoarthritis, relieving pain and improving joint function. More studies are needed to confirm these findings (and to determine if bromelain is effective by itself).
In other countries, bromelain is generally accepted to be effective for treating sinus infections or other sinus problems, helping with wound debridement, and reducing swelling and promoting healing after injury or surgery. However, more research (especially high-quality research) is needed before it can be said conclusively that bromelain works for these uses.
