  • Supplement Use in Sickness and in Health - WebMD, 5/24/04 - "Bromelain is an anti-inflammatory [that] prevents soft tissue swelling, and decreases various markers of pain and inflammation ... In one study of 74 boxers, 80% of minor injuries from bruising and swelling cleared in just four days in those boxers who took bromelain supplements after a big fight, compared with only 14% clearing of minor injuries in those who took placebo"

  • Combined anthocyanins and bromelain supplement improves endothelial function and skeletal muscle oxygenation status in adults: a double-blind placebo-controlled randomized crossover clinical trial - Br J Nutr 2020 Jul 14 - "Anthocyanins and bromelain have gained significant attention due to their antioxidative and anti-inflammatory properties. Both have been shown to improve endothelial function, blood pressure (BP), and oxygen utility capacity in humans, however the combination of these two and the impacts on endothelial function, BP, total antioxidant capacity (TAC), and oxygen utility capacity have not been previously investigated. The purpose of this study was to investigate the impacts of a combined anthocyanins and bromelain supplement (BE) on endothelial function, BP, TAC, oxygen utility capacity, and fatigability in healthy adults. Healthy adults (n=18, age 24±4) received BE or placebo in a randomized crossover design. Brachial artery flow-mediated dilation (FMD), BP, TAC, resting heart rate, oxygen utility capacity, and fatigability were measured pre-and post-BE and placebo intake. The BE group showed significantly increased FMD, reduced systolic BP, and improved oxygen utility capacity compared placebo group (p<0.05). Tissue saturation and oxygenated hemoglobin significantly increased following BE intake while deoxygenated hemoglobin significantly decreased (p<0.05) during exercise. Additionally, TAC was significantly increased following BE intake" - See anthocyanins at Amazon.com and iHerb and bromelain at Amazon.com and iHerb.
