What is bromelain? Bromelain is extracted from pineapples. According to the Gale Encyclopedia of Alternative Medicine and many other sources, bromelain is all of the following...
  1. A natural anti-inflammatory: Although not as long-lasting as pectin, bromelain brings temporary relief from inflammation caused by arthritis, surgery, injury, disease, or muscle soreness. It also reduces the numbness, tingling, aching, and loss of motor and sensory function in the fingers resulting from carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS).
  2. A digestive aid: Good health depends on adequate digestion. Bromelain is an enzyme capable of enhancing digestion, thus reducing or eliminating nausea, heartburn, gastric reflux, and other symptoms that accompany non-digestion of foods.
  3. A body-healing accelerator: Bromelain speeds up the body's healing process. Doctor Greg Kelly, N.D., a naturopathic doctor in Stamford, Connecticut, recommends that his patients take bromelain before and after surgery to speed the healing process. Pineapple had a long history of traditional use among the native peoples of Central and South America. They applied pineapple dressings to wounds and skin injuries to reduce inflammation and promote faster healing.
  4. A natural pain killer: Bromelain is also used to treat pain.
  5. Stroke and heart disease inhibitor: Bromelain is beneficial in reducing the clumping of platelets (small platelike particles in the blood), thus reducing the risk of stroke. Bromelain also helps to prevent the formation of plaques in the arteries, and the formation of blood clots. All these effects help to prevent and treat cardiovascular disease.  
  6. A Blood Pressure Reducing Agent: After extended use, bromelain often reduces blood pressure.

How much should I take? It's nearly impossible to overdose on pectin. However, more care should be taken with bromelain. A therapeutic dosage of bromelain is 300mg to 1,500mg per day (1 to 6 Arbor County Pectin/Bromelain capsules). Never exceed 3,000mg in one day (12 pectin/bromelain capsules).

According to references sited on this page, our bromelain page, and our quercetin page, The combination of citrus fruit pectin, bromelain, quercetin can be used as a natural cure for natural healing of cancer, arthritis, cholesterol, diabetes, allergies, allergic reaction to food and medicine (and allergy to airborne allergens), chronic prostate and prostatitis, chronic bladder and cystitis, viruses, herpes virus, breast cancer, diabetes, stroke prevention, weight reduction, obesity, inflammation, high blood pressure.

According to this article on cancer, quercetin (from various fruits and vegetables), a bioflavanoid (an antioxidant), is chemically attracted to damaged (cancerous) cells, bonding to them and rendering them harmless, thereby preventing metastasizing (spreading) by inhibiting the replication of damaged, diseased cells. This is one method in which quercetin can assist in helping damaged, diseased cells to no longer metastasize (spread).

Bromelain (from pineapples) is an anti-inflammatory used to aid digestion, accelerate healing, prevent stroke, reduce blood pressure, reduce or eliminate pain.

Pectin (from apples and some citrus fruits) is used to reduce or eliminate arthritis symptoms, cholesterol, obesity, constipation, gallstones or galstones, and diabetes. Pectin can also prevent dimentia (senility or senile behavior), stroke, and heart attack by improving the health of veins, arteries, and other connective tissue.
