Were you looking for information about Bromelain? Bromolin is a common misspelling of bromelain.
 
Bromelain is a mixture of protein-dissolving enzymes. It contains substances that may slow down the growth of cancerous cells, decrease the "stickiness" of blood platelets, help to break down blood clots, and help to break down and remove dead, damaged, or infected tissue (such as in burn wounds). It may also affect the way white blood cells function, which may produce anti-inflammatory properties. Prior to taking this supplement, make sure to talk to your healthcare provider about your medical history and any other medicines you are taking (including vitamins and herbal supplements).
