Bromelain - The Wonder Supplement

(NewsTarget) I first experienced bromelain several years ago when I was bitten by a brown recluse spider on the front of my upper left leg - in three places no less. This was the second time I had been bitten - the first time I was bitten resulted in the loss of a chunk of flesh and, much worse, being crippled for several months thanks to the treating physician botching the treatment and thrusting his deadening needle into my bursal sac. Since I did not want to repeat that ugly memory and I was in my first few years of studying natural health, I decided to try to handle it myself.

One of the people I consulted for help was an old naturopathic healer who claimed to have been a doctor in Russia before immigrating to the United States many decades ago. He suggested that, among other things, I made sure that I used bromelain, which he called a wonder supplement.

And so, armed with garlic (which I took internally and used externally), some hydrogen peroxide, over-the-counter ointments, a vial of homeopathic ledum pallustre, raw garlic, whatever else I could round up, and bromelain, I began to treat the spider bites. For a couple of days it was touch and go it seemed, as the bites continue to redden and swell and the radiating areas of red and pink grew until it encompassed an area about 6 inches by 12 inches. But then the tide turned and the bites began to get better. Within a little over a week, they were mostly healed and within two weeks there was virtually no sign of the bites.

After the success against the spider bite, I decided to take a closer look at bromelain. What I found amazed me - bromelain truly is a wonder supplement! Just take a look at a partial list Bromelain`s proven powers to see what I mean:

Bromelain helps bruises and injuries heal an average of three times faster and helps athletes regain peak form much more quickly.

Bromelain is also a strong binder and increases the absorption of supplements and medicines up to three times or more of the amount that the body would normally absorb.

In addition, bromelain helps heal or lessen:

* Angina

* Arthritis

* Athletic and Musculoskeletal Injuries

* Bacteria Infections

* Bronchitis

* Cancer and Tumors

* Cellulitis

* Cutaneous Staphylococcus Infection

* Debridement of Burns

* Dysmenorrhea

* Edema

* Inflammation

* Maldisgestion

* Pancreatic Insufficiency and Steatorrhea

* Platelet Aggregations

* Pneumonia

* Rectal abscesses

* Sinusitis

* Surgical Trauma

* Thrombophlebitis

Since I have always been one to take a healthy amount of vitamins, minerals and other healthy supplements, I was extremely interested to see if Bromelain would help with the absorption. All I had to do was take a look at the bright fluorescent colored urine to know that much of what I take is passing through the body without being absorbed. So, I started taking a couple of 500 mg capsules of Bromelain daily.

Lo and behold, the color of my urine was much lighter. And I felt more energetic too. I have no doubt it was the bromelain, a favorite supplement which I continue to take daily.

For an even better idea of what bromelain does and how it does it, I would like to point the reader to the following study (although a bit technical, it should give you an even better idea of how amazing bromelain is and the accuracy of what I have reported):
