Comment:
Several years ago I used Bromelain capsules because I read about the effect it had on body fat. After a few weeks I noticed my body looking slimmer and feeling tighter.

Comment:
I have been using bromelain to ease menstrual cramps for years. There is nothing I know of that is more effective as it actually alieviates the cramping instead of masking the pain. Everyone that I know that I have reccomended it too has great results as well. It has been documented as a smooth muscle relaxant.
