VitaMedica's Bromelain with Quercetin is a nutritional supplement that contains natural ingredients, with excellent anti-inflammatory properties. Bromelain is an enzyme extracted from the stem of the pineapple. Quercetin is a plant pigment found in large amounts in foods such as onions and apples. Together, Bromelain and Quercetin work synergistically to reduce the bruising and swelling associated with surgical procedures.
Bromelain inhibits compounds called prostaglandins that cause inflammation, and promotes the formation of anti-inflammatory prostaglandins. Quercetin inhibits the release of inflammatory mediators called histamine. Combined, these nutrients enhance the effects of each other and demonstrate significant anti-inflammatory activity.
