Bromelain is a general name given to a family of proteolytic enzymes derived from Ananas comosus, the pineapple plant.
Bromelain has been shown to promote healing and reduce temporary and minor swelling and bruising following trauma or surgical procedures – including dental surgery.* Plastic surgeons have shown interest in bromelain because of its ability to increase the resorption rate of hematomas following surgery.* Bromelain exerts some of its effects because of it's potent proteolytic activity. One study of patients with bone fractures found bromelain decreased swelling.*
