ECHEMI | What is bromelain

Bromelain is an anti-inflammatory drug derived from pineapple stem that acts through down-regulation of plasma kininogen, inhibition of Prostaglandin E2 expression, degradation of advanced glycation end product receptors and regulation of angiogenic biomarkers as well as antioxidant action upstream in the COX-pathway. Bromelain exhibits various fibrinolytic, antiedematous, antithrombotic, and anti-inflammatory activities.
