Bromelain is a plant-derived enzyme extracted from the stems and fruits of the pineapple. Its action has been proposed for various health disorders like inflammation of soft-tissue injuries or arthritis and, combined with chemotherapy, it helps to reduce side-effects due to radiation treatments and inhibits cancer cell growth.
Papain is a protease extracted from the fruit of Carica papaya. Beside its conventional use as digestive aid, this enzyme has anti-inflammatory properties by reducing painful joint and prostate inflammations and could support the immune system in cancer treatments by modulating leukocytes during an immune response.
