good anti-inflammatory properties
Posted by blabla on Sep 12, 2012
For a months I had a condition which was either tendonitis or plantar fasciitis. I am not sure which ones it was because I never went to a doctor but I had the typical symptoms and read about bromelain and its properties. I decided to give it a try when my foot recovery had reached a plateau after a few months of unpleasant pain in the foot arch. After a month of taking Bromelain my foot is feeling much better and pretty much all the pain is gone. Bromelain has mild blood thinning properties and might interact with some drugs, so probably it's not a good idea to take it before consulting a medical specialist.

Good for Inflammation
Posted by SherryB on Aug 23, 2012
bromelain is good to fight inflammation in the body. This Now product is a quality product. I have used protease and bromelain for years to combat chronic inflammation and to help heal.
Helps with Aches and Pains

When my arthritic hip is bothering me I'll take a couple of Bromelain instead of aspirin or Advil. It does help sooth the ache.
Effective, good price

have used this for high protein meals and found it very effective. I am vegetarian so it's great to have Vcaps. I can always count on these, which you can take after a meal, in case i forget to take one before. Again surprised and gratified how effective Now products are.

Now - Bromelain 2400 GDU 500mg v-caps

I suffer from debilitating chronic elbow pain from guitar playing, and after taking bromelain in conjunction with turmeric the pain eased immediately. After taking just one a day for three days my joint function was vastly improved. I continue to use both daily for maintenance & rarely have breakthrough pain. My wife uses this bromelain along with white willow bark & it has controlled her chronic plantar pain. Highly recommended.

I started with one cap a day and after 3 weeks, no more blocked nose! As I have a few "unsightly" moles on legs and arms, and as I've heard bromelain would help, I took 2 caps a day, but no improvement so far, maybe I should wait some more...
