Arnica Montana and Bromlain as Anti-Inflammatories after Surgery

Formulated by the professionals at DermAvance, Arnika Forte is a leading post-operative supplement used in aesthetic procedures. Arnika Forte uses Arnica montana and bromelain to reduce the swelling and bruising associated with cosmetic surgery. Arnika Forte is the only product of its kind on the market and has been used by notable figures including Angelina Jolie.

Arnica montana is a herbaceous flower similar in appearance to large daisies. The flower is useful in both fresh and dried states and has been widely used in medicine since the 1500s to reduce muscle aches, swelling, and bruising. Arnica can be used both topically and orally, though it is important to take oral arnica under the supervision of a medical professional.

Bromelain, a mixture of enzymes commonly derived from pineapple stems and pineapple juice, causes the body to fight inflammation and also reduces bruising. The Bromelain that is used in Arnika Forte comes from the "stem" and contains the highest level of enzymatic potency. This makes bromelain valuable for reducing swelling and bruising especially after injury.
