Bromelain is a protein-digesting enzyme, found most commonly in pineapple. While effective at breaking down protein into smaller amino acids, Bromelain has been traditionally used in South America to reduce irritation and swelling. Bromelain was also utilized in Europe as an effective aide in reducing swelling after surgery. While research suggests that Bromelain helps to reduce swelling, speed up recovery times, stop bruising, and reduce discomfort, Bromelain has also been linked to a variety of other benefits, such as sinus relief, topical applications for burns, relieving irritation caused by insect bites and stings, digestion support, immune boost, and many other benefits (all the more reason to eat more delicious pineapple!)
Boswellia Serrata, also known as Indian Frankincense, hosts similar properties as well. Extracted from the gum resin of a deciduous tree from the Burseraceae family, Boswellia contains sixteen known species, but Boswellia Serrata is the species most utilized in herbal medicine for its anti-inflammatory properties. It is best known in herbal medicine for treating arthritis through the use of boswellic acid, a powerful anti-inflammatory. But, like Bromelain, Boswellia Serrata has also been associated with a variety of other uses, including arthritis relief, immune support, asthma relief, and reduce bowel inflammation.
